Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse
To this day, the Bugatti Veyron remains a symbol of automotive excellence, defining their driver as a man of a different breed, empowering them to true high-end performance. The Vitesse is the Veyron that goes beyond unique and empowering, drawing a fine line between the Grand Sport and the Super Sport.
Last year, we were to think that 2013 would be the last of the pure-blood automotive Gods. But, with the success of the Vitesse and their dedication to maintaining the record for the “world’s fastest production car”, they’ve decided to keep the reign of the Veyrons going. Still, the Vitesse holds the Super Sport’s monstrous 1,200 horsepower quad-turbo 16.4-liter W-16, and the one-of-a-kind design that is instantly recognized by us all. The superior luxury and boundless creativity of the Vitesse is easily unimaginable to anyone who has never stepped their foot on the pedal.
The menacing power that comes with this exotic is best described as it is: the fastest roadster in the world. With a factory limiter set at 255 mph, Bugatti placed professional driver Anthony Liu behind the wheel on the Volkswagen test track for another try at a world record. The result verified their roadster to be the fastest, yet again, only now with an open top, at an outstanding 254.04 mph.
But for those of you dare devils thinking about trying this when you buy your own, the Vitesse was never intended to reach more than 233 mph open top. Bugatti put faith in their very creative engineers and pushed their roadster to the limits, accomplishing an impressive feat and proving once again who the best on the road really is.
