Spotting a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, let alone a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport World Record Edition anywhere but on a motor show stand is something experienced by very few.
However, The Supercar Driver on YouTube recently spotted that very car, a one of just ten, Bugatti Veyron Super Sport World Record Edition on British public roads with the driver then showcasing a couple of full throttle pulls in the insane French supercar.
As a reminder, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is officially the world’s fastest production car after reaching a top speed of 267mph in June 2010. Powering the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is an uprated version of the standard quad-turbo 8.0-liter W16 engine now producing 1200hp. Consequently, the heavy car can sprint to 62mph in just 2.5 seconds.
While a successor to the Bugatti Veyron has yet to be confirmed for production, a new ‘SuperVeyron’ is currently believed to be in the pipeworks with current speculation suggesting that the top-of-the-range Bugatti Veyron could produce as much as 1,600hp and will consequently hit 62mph in just 1.8 seconds.
Consequently, the car would become the world’s fastest and is also predicted to have a top speed well in excess of 275mph therefore making it faster than even the SSC Tuatara.
