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.
Most people on this site would kill to own a Bugatti Veyron, but when reality sets in, it’s just not going to happen. That’s when the Bugatti Veyron replica car builders come to play, and this two million dollar Bugatti Veyron now has a cheap price tag. Well not exactly cheap at 89,000 USD, but a fraction of what it would cost to own a real Bugatti Veyron. This replica car was built on a 2002 Mercury Cougar with a V6 and automatic transmission. Only major problem I see is the car having 112,000 miles! It will probably need a new engine swap and suspension soon, however a potential new owner will have the body work, 20-inch wheels, angel eye HID headlights, LED taillights, functional gas cap, and power windows with working mirrors. The eBay seller says the interior is still in progress but very close to being ready for upholstery. We’ll keep our eye on this one and see how it turns out. You can check the listing here.
At the VW Ehra-Lessien proving ground, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport has set the new production car land speed record with a smashing number. Hitting 267 mph, the new Bugatti world record thrashed the previous 256.23 mph time set by the SSC Ultimate Aero in Nevada back in 2007. Beating the previous world land speed record by 11 mph is unbelievable, but then again, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is an amazing sports car. So, what exactly were the improvements to this Bugatti that previous models were left without?
Vincero is the name of the latest car modified by refining specialist Mansory, an incredible project based on a Bugatti Veyron. Veyron was already one of the most powerful cars in the world and it’s stock version sets standards in terms of price, top speed and engine power leaving every competitor far behind. But Mansory wanted to make a unique version of this car and they prepared a lot of visually changes for this Bugatti. The front side of this car received a comprehensive face lift with modified wings, a shorter hood and an aggressive front apron with LED daytime running lights. A special “V” on the front side of the car draws even more attention to this car and brings a special tribute to the name Vincero. The new side skirts connect the two sides of this car visually and aerodynamically.
Mansory hasn’t revealed any information about their latest project: a modified Bugatti Veyron Vincero but the exotic car dealer Prestige Cars from United Arab Emirates already posted this car for sale. According to them only three examples have been built. From the pictures we can see that the Veyron-based Vincero features a carbon fiber hood and engine cover, an awesome paint job that’s perfectly matched with a set of black alloy wheels and a lot of other carbon fiber elements. The car’s interior was also improved a lot and “luxury” is a word too small to describe the comfort from this ride. The guys from Mansory reupholstered the interior in black and white with carbon fiber trim.
Do you dream about cars that are somewhat exclusive? About one of the fastest cars on this planet? You don’t know what to do with your money? If you answered “yes” in all cases, we have something exactly for you. It’s the Bugatti Veyron. But not your typical Bugatti– it’s a special edition of only 5 cars! Its name is the Bugatti EB 16.4 Veyron Pur sang.
This is the limited edition that differs at the first sight from the ordinary version. It’s unique with its exterior, because it is almost impossible to improve the perfect interior and engine. The engineers have decided to build the whole chassis of only two materials – a special aluminum alloy and carbon fiber. This chassis is buffed to the highest gloss without any paintwork.
