DJ Afrojack is quite familiar with some of the industry’s fastest and most sought after cars having owned a Ferrari 458 Italia and a Lamborghini Aventador. However, even the Aventador pales in comparison to the machine Afrojack recently got behind the wheel of.
Not long after we had the incredible opportunity to drive the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse World Record Car, Afrojack also got behind the wheel of the French hypercar on the track!
The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse World Record Car of course features the same mechanicals as the regular Vitesse. It comes with the famous 8.0-litre W16 engine featuring four turbochargers that delivers 1,200 hp at 6,400 rpm as well as monstrous 1,500 Nm of torque between 3,000 and 5,000 rpm.
GTspirit Review of Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse World Record Car
Needless to say to put the Veyron Vitesse WRC in motion you need quite a bit of fuel. It has combined fuel consumption of 23.1l/100km and in town it burns 37.2 l/100 km on average. As for CO2 emissions, it emits 539 g/km on the combined cycle.
Thanks to this truly ferocious engine, the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse World Record Car reaches 100 km/h in a mere 2.6 seconds. It hits 200 km/h in 7.1 seconds and in just 16 seconds flat it will be travelling at 300 km/h. This translates into a 10 second quarter mile. As for the top speed, well that is where the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse is in a league of its own: with roof attached it tops out at over 400 km/h. To achieve this speed the car needs to be in a special top speed mode, in normal handling mode it is limited to 375 km/h.
Back in April last year, Chinese racing driver Anthony Liu piloted the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse World Record Car to a top speed of 408.84 km/h (254.04 mph). That record was achieved with the roof removed at the Volkswagen Group’s proving grounds in Ehra-Lessien and that won the Vitesse WRC the title for the world’s fastest convertible.
