The new McLaren P1 totally stole Bugatti Veyron’s thunder at this year’s Paris Motor Show. But in fairness, there was nothing to see at their booth apart from a Grand Sport Vitesse in a new blue and white livery. But at the end of the day, it is still a Bugatti Veyron. It’s a 1,200 hp, 410 km/h, 1.8 million Euro, convertible hyper car. Who doesn’t want to see that.
So here’s a short clip from Bugga’s stand at the show, where they unveiled this special edition Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse in a unique Bianco and New Light Blue colour, a livery inspired by the famous Type 37A, built in 1928:
The new 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.
