The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is, once again, the world’s fastest production car, after Guiness World Records has announced recently.
The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport has lost the title of the fastest production car in the world last week, according to Shelby Super Cars (SSC), who said that their Ultimate Aero has claimed the title. The announcement has been made after Guiness World Records has discovered that the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport had the top speed limiter deactivated when it reached 430,98 km/h (267,8 mph), and the SSC Ultimate Aero should claim the title after doing 412,22 km/h (256,14 mph), with the speed limiter on.
Guiness World Records has quickly come to its senses and awarded the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport with the “world’s fastest production car” title once again, after it reached the conclusion that “a change to the speed limiter does not alter the fundamental design of the car or its engine”. On paper, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is faster than the SSC Ultimate Aero because it can reach a top speed of 415 km/h (258 mph) with the top speed limiter on.
