Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse revealed
This year at the Geneva Motor Show, Bugatti has introduced the most powerful roadster of all time. We’re talking of course about the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse which as you would expect is based on the open-topped Grand Sport version, but it comes with a serious power boost that we’ve seen in the Super Sport model which is the closed-topped Veyron.
The Grand Sport offers no less than 987 hp and a peak torque of 922 lb.-ft, whereas the Vitesse comes with a massive 1,184 hp available at 6,400 rpm and a maximum torque of 1,105 lb.-ft available between 3,000 and 5,000 rpm. That horsepower is coming from the huge 8-liter, 16-cylinder engine that comes with four enlarged turbochargers and intercoolers. In order to support the power increase, Bugatti’s engineers have modified the chassis of the car.
No word about the 0-62 mph sprint time of the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse (long name, isn’t it?) but most likely it should be of about 2.5 seconds, which is 0.2 quicker than the regular Grand Sport. The latter is able to reach a top speed of 253 mph with the transparent polycarbonate roof on while without it the top speed is limited to 223 mph.
Bugatti hasn’t released any details concerning the price tag of the Grand Sport Vitesee, but since the Super Sport costs 2.1 million pounds, the roadster will cost just about the same.
