Official Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

It is official! The new Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is heading our way. Limited to only 40 pieces, the latest edition of the hypercar boosts 1200hp, a top speed of 434km/h (269.8mph) and a sprint time from 0 to 100km/h (62mph) of just 2,5 seconds. 300km/h (186mph) is reached in 15 seconds.

The manufacturer sent test driver Pierre Henri Raphanel out onto Volkswagen’s Ehra-Lessian high-speed oval with the first Super Sport. Representatives of the Guinness book of records and German Technical Inspection Agency (TÜV) saw Raphanel achieve the unthinkable.

The vehicle got a destinctive new body setup and trim colour called the Bugatti World Record Edition. The first five production Super Sport will have the same black and orange finish as shown on the record-breaking car. All production models will be electronically limited to 413km/h (257.9mph) to protect the tires.

The price of the new Veyron Super Sport is € 1.950.000 excluding taxes.

It is unknown if a Grand Sport Super Sport Edition will hit the roads. The Super Sport will make its official debut at Pebble Beach in August.

  1. what is the point of having a fastest car in the world if you cant reach its top speed. its just stupid. I would rather had F1.

  2. People, why so much hate?Because a car can leave behind a F1?Or because you cant drive it or even see it?Some people(i am one of em)would give their lives to drive something that reaches 434kmh and is barely stick in to the ground.Yeah a thing like that propably wont steer that fast as a F1 but you cant buy a F1 and the only circuit races except F1 are done with under 400hp.Look at it its a mechanical achievment.By the way has anyone of you driven a F1?Propably not.Neither this Bugatti.Admit it you would like to have one.

  3. Its simply an exercise of whats possible… nothing more, nothing less… the cherry on top is someone with enough $ can buy it.

    There are plenty of cars I would prefer owning to this for sheer driving pleasure among other factors, even if I had the money. But that doesn’t retract from this being a technological marvel and worthy of respect.
    In the end whether you realize it or not, the advances and pushing of the envelope done here will eventually trickle down to other cars(not just limited to bugatti), its just the way it works.

  4. Concorde. But this time, its a better, whatever the word means to the car, Concorde.

    Love it. The world should exercise some Victorean can-do and blow minds as they push the envelope.

  5. Let see, with almost EU 2million plus taxes in my country(venezuela I will have to pay 100% import duty taxes so were talking about EU 4 million to drive it in a country that has terrible roads courtesy of mr. chavez(our local dictator) I think it would be more resonable to have 6 to 10 high end cars.
