Bugatti has recently announced its plans to introduce a brand new edition of the Veyron, which is named the Grand Sport Vitesse World Record Car Edition.
After announcing that the world’s fastest convertible is now the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, with a top speed of 408.84 km/h (254.04 mph), the carmaker is now presenting us with a new edition of the Veyron, which has been made to celebrate the occasion.
“This was a very exciting moment. In our training sessions we exceeded 400 km/h (248 mph) but the fact that I could surpass this unbelievable speed once again and even higher has made me very proud. The car is even at such high speeds incredibly comfortable and stable. With an open top, you can really experience the sound of the engine and yet even at higher speeds I did not get compromised by the wind at all”, said Anthony Liu, the Chinese racing driver who made the new record possible.
The brand new Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse World Record Car Edition will be officially presented to the public during the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show. The model will get a 7.9 liter W16 quad-turbocharged engine, which is good for 1,200 HP (882 kW) and 1,500 Nm of torque (1,106 lb-ft), mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, which is allowing the model to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.6 seconds. The new Veyron Edition will be produced in 8 units and each one will cost 1.99 million euros.
