Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse


Updated on

At the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, Bugatti has released the latest Veyron varaint called the Grand Sport Vitesse. This amazing super car is claimed to be fastest roadster in the world, without tuning of course. We recall the standard Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport was limited to 217 mph. The new Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse received four larger turbochargers to give it 1,200 horsepower and 1106 lb-ft of torque, capable of reaching 229 mph from the factory. Now just wait until some tuning companies get their hands on this beast. That is, if anyone is crazy enough to modify a 2-3 million dollar super car.

While we are sure someone will see what it is truly capable of, Bugatti didn’t only focus on the power upgrade and new name. The Bugatti Veyron Vitesse received some new suspension and chassis improvements to handle the large turbos delivering insane power. The CEO of Bugatti, Wolfgang Durheimer stated that the Bugatti Vitesse can pull a mind blowing 1.4 lateral G, and that when reaching top speed, the wind buffeting isn’t noticeable until the driver exceeds 186 mph. We’ll have to wait and see how that pans out with the road tests, but stay tuned for more Bugatti Veryon Grand Sport Vitesse updates in the near future.
