The hypercar may have left the production line but it still remains one iconic vehicle with impressive performance.
Bugatti may have pulled the plug on the Veyron a few months back, with the unveil of a final edition at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, but that doesn’t mean that the hypercar is good for the scrapyard. This still remains one of the hottest vehicles ever produced and, until now, it is still a production car with the highest top speed, since Koenigsegg hasn’t announced an official one for its One:1 megacar. The clip posted below is showing us yet another example of the Bugatti Veyron in action, which happens to be a one-off Grand Sport Vitesse L’Or Rouge, which participated at the 2015 Sun Valley Road Rally.
The model in question is the fastest open-top roadster out there and it is shown in action, in the video posted below, reaching a top speed of 379.3 km/h (235.7 mph). Keep in mind that this “figure” has been achieved on public roads, which is an even bigger success. The Bugatti Veyron has been officially unveiled back in 2005, in the 16.4 version. This has been followed, four years later, by the Grand Sport, and in 2010, the company has shown the Super Sport. The final variant of the hypercar, the Grand Sport Vitesse, was introduced a year later, and the Grand Sport Vitesse La Finale was the final example. All examples of the Veyron made use of an 8.0 liter W16 quad turbocharged engine, connected to the all-wheel drive system through a 7-speed DSG and producing different outputs. This particular model was good for 1,200 HP (882 kW).
