Bugatti releases a new promo video for the latest and greatest creation, the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, which is of course the SuperSport version of the Grand Sport, powered by the same 1,200 horsepower engine. The Vitesse is the fastest open-top car in the known universe, and also one of the most luxurious. And it costs 1.8 million euros!
The car is worth every penny though, because no other machine is capable of what this thing can do. 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. 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).
