Bugatti just released some new driving footage of the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse – or to put it simply the drop-top version of the SuperSport – from its American media press drive event. This particular Vitesse looks astounding in that unique shade of orange, complemented by black part, and it looks even better next to the amazing scenery on the outskirts of New York. It’s all very dramatic!
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse boasts a remarkable maximum torque of 1,500 Nm (at 3,000-5,000 rpm) from the 7.9-litre capacity of its W16 engine. The maximum output (1.200 hp) is reached at 6.400 rpm. These figures allow the car to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) from standing in unbelievable 2.6 seconds. The top speed of 410 km/h (255 mph) makes the four-wheel drive (like all Veyrons) Grand Sport Vitesse the fastest production roadster ever. The maximum speed is reached on closed tracks with special safety precautions. In “normal” handling mode, the Grand Sport Vitesse is electronically limited to 375 km/h (233 mph).
