Bugatti releases a new video starring the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, the convertible variant of the Veyron Super Sport which uses the same, terrific 8.0-litre quad turbo W16 engine with new superchargers and bigger intercoolers. This outstanding engine is credited with an output of 1,200 hp with 1,500 Nm of maximum torque that pushes the car from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.6 seconds, from 0 to 200 km/h in 7.1 seconds and can make it rach a top speed in excess of 400 km/h (about 250 mph).
The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse measures 4,462 mm in length, 1,998 mm in width and 1,190 mm in height, and can come with an all-wheel drive system, a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, and a set of carbon-ceramic brakes, 400 mm at the front and 380 mm at the back. The model also features three modes of suspension settings: Standard, Handling and Top Speed. The Top Speed one is the setting selected for driving at speeds of over 375 km/k (233 mph).
In order to compensate the lack of a proper roof, Bugatti’s engineers worked on the chassis of the car to make it stiffer, making also the NACA air intakes larger, making them larger. This modification will allow its powerful W16 unit to get the right cooling when driving with the soft top down. Simply put, this is the fastest serially produced convertible car in automotive history.
