Bugatti Veyron Targa |

Bugatti, currently a part of the VAG group, has to recover some more of it’s huge investment developing the Veyron because right now the Veyron is being sold at a loss. Just look at all the “special edition” Veyrons out there. But special editions can only get you so far. So Bugatii is planning to launch a Targa version and apparently it’s being unveiled at the 2008 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

The Targa will get a glass removable hardtop, as well as a retractable soft fabric roof. The hardtop can’t be stored inside the car either, because of space issues. Losing it’s top it also lost some of it’s rigidity so some changes were made to stiffen it up. But that adds weight so the doors and hood will be carbon-fiber. Even with the changes a convertible can’t take the 407 km/h top speed so that’s limited to 350 km/h (217 mph) still making it the fastest open top car in the world.
