Last year, actor and former Californian Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was snapped behind the wheel of his brand new Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. Now Austria’s most famous movie star has been filmed once again driving his sleek French hypercar.
Unlike many other Veyron Vitesse models which feature over-the-top paint and carbon fibre finishes, Schwarzenegger’s is quite restrained. As such, it features a simple silver paint job and is rolling on a set of bright silver forged aluminium wheels. The interior is then adorned in luxurious dark brown leather.
Beneath the skin, the Grand Sport Vitesse has a truly huge 8.0-litre W16 engine featuring four turbochargers! As a result of this, the car delivers 1200 hp at 6400 rpm as well as 1500 Nm of torque between 3000 and 5000 rpm. Compared to the regular Veyron 16.4, the Vitesse has 199 hp more. This additional power has been achieved by using four larger turbochargers with new intercoolers. Furthermore, Bugatti has extensively reinforced all drivetrain components in order to safely transfer this immense power at all times.
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 also hits 200 km/h in 7.1 seconds and in just 16 seconds flat 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.
