Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse World Record Car Edition 2013 Review

Bugatti announced that the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse has officially become the fastest Open-top production car in the world. The Bugatti Veyron World Record Car will be unveiled to the world for the first time at the Shanghai Motor Show 2013 in April.

The renowned independent German organisation for Technical Inspection and Certification, has officially confirmed that a top speed of 408.84 km/h (254.04 mph) was achieved during a high-speed run. The Vitesse was driven by the Chinese racing driver Anthony Liu.

According to Liu, “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.”

For the record-breaking drive, the Vitesse received a powerful dual-colour scheme in black and orange, perfectly translating its inner qualities into its exterior appearance. This special Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse will be available in a World Record Car (WRC) Edition, which is limited to eight vehicles. The price per vehicle is €1.99 ($2.60 / £1.69) (plus tax).
