Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Revealed
Among the many cars that are going to be premiered at the 2012 Geneva Motors Snow we presented among our pages, you won’t find one that’s more powerful or expensive than what is to come in the next article. Bugatti is taking part at the show, on the 6th of March, presenting their latest speed-demon – the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse.
The vehicle is actually a mixture of two elder cars signed Bugatti – the Super Sport and the roadster Grand Sport. To be more precise, the Vitesse features the look of the first one and the body structure of the second one. That means the world speed record for the fastest series production car remains at the 431 km/h barrier (268 mph).
The difference in power between the two aforementioned massive boosters is as following: the Super Sport packs 1,200 HP (883 kW) and 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft) of torque, while the Grand Sport delivers 1,001 HP (736 kW) and 1,250 Nm (922 lb-ft).
Decked with a beasty 16-cylinder motor, the car also features four expanded turbines and intercoolers. If the car wouldn’t have suffered changes in the chassis, probably the engine would have started without the car.
Wolfgang Dȕrheimer, the President of Bugatti, declared that: “The rapid success of the Super Sport convinced us to increase the performance of the Bugatti roadster. Once again our engineers worked hard to demonstrate that Bugatti is able to constantly redefine the boundaries of what is technically feasible.” This proves once again that Bugatti means extreme comfort at the most extreme performance.
