Superlative Veyron

Fastest car in the world just got faster – meet the new Veyron 16.4 Supersport

Bugatti has revealed a lighter and more powerful Veyron – the new 16.4 Super Sport limited edition also having reached an average top end of 431km/h under the supervision of the Guiness Book of Records this weekend.

For this version, the Veyron’s mammoth 8-litre 16-cylinder quad-turbocharged engine has been fettled to deliver 895kW, up from the standard version’s 745kW output, while torque is increased from 1250Nm to 1500Nm.

Although 431km/h is achievable, the production model will be limited to 415km/h for safety reasons, albeit still faster than the standard Veyron’s 407km/h top end.

Bugatti has also enhanced the suspension and implemented a new fibre structure in the all-carbon monocoque, leading to a slight weight reduction. Visually, the Super Sport also gets a flashy two-tone orange and black body colour combination among a few minor styling enhancements.
I live to please, but don't always succeed

Ok, that I enjoy, so my wife can't complain if I take the GS up to 200km/h, that should be a safe cruising speed :woohoo:
