We've told you all about the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport in previews earlier this month, but at today's 2010 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, we grabbed our first live photos of the world's new record holder for production-car top speed.
Bugatti introduced the car on Saturday at The Quail 2010, a rival concours at the nearby Quail Lodge in Carmel Valley, California, against a backdrop of more than a dozen pre-war Bugatti race cars and touring cars. Today, it sat on the concept-car lawn on the forecourt of the Lodge at Pebble Beach, flanked by other newly minted luxury exotics like the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, the McLaren MP4-12C supercar, and the Lotus Exos Type 125.
The Veyron Super Sport outdoes its own Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport by producing an astonishing 1200 horsepower from its 8.0-liter W-16 engine. With a carbon-fiber body and a retooled suspension, the Super Sport is good for a 0-60 mph time of under 2.5 seconds. Top speed? It's a Guinness World Record of 268 mph.
Bugatti plans to build only 300 copies of the world's fastest car.
