Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse: more photos released

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 13, 2012

The Grand Sport Vitesse that Bugatti debuted at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show is its most powerful roadster ever. The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse is powered by the same 8.0-liter W16 quad-turbocharged engine that delivers 1,200 hp, nearly 200 hp higher than the output of the standard Grand Sport.

The Grand Sport Vitesse offers 1,500 Nm of torque, with an extra 250 Nm over the Grand Sport. Bugatti attributes the additional power to the four enlarged turbochargers and intercoolers. In addition, the car chassis was modified so that it could support the additional power. The design of the Grand Sport Vitesse is inspired by the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.

It comes with a new front bumper, new side sills, and the same exhaust system used on the Super Sport. The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport can go as fast as 431 km/h, making it the current holder of the world speed record. Bugatti President Wolfgang Dürheimer said that the Super Sport’s “rapid success” prompted the company to boost the Bugatti roadster’s performance.
