The world’s fastest roadster, the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, will be officially presented to the public at the upcoming 2012 Geneva Motor Show, which will open its gates in March.
After the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse has been previewed just a day before writing this news, Volkswagen’s sub-brand has recently announced that the supercar will make its official debut in Geneva next month. Bugatti says that the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse is a mix between the Grand Sport’s body structure and the Super Sport’s visual appearance and performance, and the new supercar will hit the market with an impressive 1,200 horsepower.
“The rapid success of the Super Sport convinced us to increase the performance of the Bugatti roadster. Once again our engineers worked hard to demonstrate that Bugatti is able to constantly redefine the boundaries of what is technically feasible. We gave our all to transfer the achievements of the Super Sport to the Grand Sport, thereby turning open-top driving itself into an extraordinary experience at high speed”, as Wolfgang Durheimer, the company’s president, said.
Power to the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse is provided by the same engine shared with the Super Sport, which has been now fitted with larger intercoolers and turbos to generate a total output of 1,200 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 1,500 Nm of torque (1,106 lb-ft) between 3,000 and 5,000 rpm.
