Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport sold out!

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 7, 2011

It appears that the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport was quite a success as several sources confirmed the fact that the fastest car in the world is already sold out. For those who don’t know, the Bugatti built only 30 units of the Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, each carrying an estimated base price of $2.3 million. The first five units are known as the World Record Edition, and these cars were already sold out when the car has been launched.

So, what do you get for all that amount of money? First of all you get the impressive design of a supercar, then an 8-liter W16 engine mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox capable to deliver 1200 hp (882 kW) and a maximum torque of 1,500 Nm of torque.

Still, you will also get an impressive top speed of 415 km/h (257 mph), limited electronically in order to protect the tyres. Back in June, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport achieved a new landspeed world record for production cars with an average speed of 431 km/h (268 mph).

So, if you still want to buy a Bugatti Veyron you should go for the Grand Sport. It is a bit slower (360 km/h or 223 mph in the convertible form), but you will still make quite an entrance with this car at any exclusive party!

Bugatti Veyron 16.4 is known for setting a new land speed world record for production cars after logging 431 km/h (267.81 mph). Now, Bugatti is introducing a subtle evolution of this classic exclusive 1,001-hp hypercar – the new Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. Thanks to the incessant aspirations for performance of Bugatti’s talented engineers, they were able to evolve the Veyron into a vehicle that allows drivers to achieve something special.

Each tweak made onto the new Bugatti Veyron Super Sport has allowed the carmaker to come up with a vehicle that is not only powerfully dynamic but is also elegantly agile. To augment the power that comes from the 16-cylinder engine of the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, Bugatti fitted four enlarged turbochargers as well as bigger intercoolers. This engine is mated to a twin clutch transmission with seven speeds.

Also, the carmaker significantly re-designed its chassis -- slightly raised main-spring travel, new shock absorbers and stronger stabilizers -- to allow it to maintain safety even during extreme speed. This means that the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is now easier and more precise to control.

Thanks to its lateral acceleration of up to 1.4 G and enhanced interaction between the intelligent all-wheel drive system and the tires, the new Bugatti Veyron Super Sport could eke out acceleration numbers of stunning 1,500 Newton meters on corner exits.

The French automaker also fitted the Veyron Super Sport with a fine-tuned body that boasts of enhanced aerodynamic efficiency and perfect balance in any driving situation. Its all-carbon monocoque features a new fiber structure that enables maximum torsion rigidity as well as passive safety while ensuring that the vehicle is much lighter. The new Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is wrapped in skin from carbon-fiber composites, with customers given the option to avail of the fully clear lacquered exposed carbon.

Like any of the Bugatti vehicles of the past and the present, the Veyron Super Sport is elegantly beautiful, especially in terms of exterior shape and styling. This vehicle stays true to the philosophy preached by company founder Ettore Bugatti -- which is to combine mechanical perfection and exterior beauty.

This can’t be denied by the fact the flat and elongated silhouette of the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is instantly recognizable. Instead of air scoops placed just above the vehicle’s 16-cylinder engine, two NACA ducts integrated into the roof are fitted.

Bugatti has also expanded and reshaped the front air intakes of the Veyron Super Sport, with the lower intake extending around the sides to the wheel arch. This has resulted to an athletic rear styling that is further augmented by the double diffuser and a centrally arranged exhaust system.
