Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Live Photos: 2012 Geneva Motor Show


What do you get if you blend the top-speed-record-breaking Bugatti Veyron Super Sport with the open air Veyron Grand Sport? The newly-announced Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, which is guaranteed to dry your hair faster than any other earth-bound machine on the planet.

The Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse gets the same engine tuning as the Veyron Super Sport, which means it comes packing an 8.0-liter, quad-turbo W-16 engine good for 1,200 horsepower and 1,106 pound-feet of torque. The standard Grand Sport chassis has been reinforced to cope with the additional power, which comes courtesy of larger turbos.

While the top speed and 0-60 performance of the Grand Sport Vitesse haven’t yet been revealed, we expect the car to slot in above the regular Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport, but below the hard-top version of the Veyron Super Sport. Given the potential aerodynamic issues, we doubt the Grand Sport Vitesse will share the Super Sport’s 268 mph top speed.

Like the Grand Sport, expect the Vitesse to use a targa roof panel that doesn’t stow on-board, limiting topless motoring to day trips in good weather. Given the cost to operate the Bugatti Veyron, we don’t see that as limiting the car’s appeal in the least.

  4. they have an open order on 100 more transmissions (current version). so there will be enouhg versions to cover that. Then next model and the 4 door will get a newer transmission.

    also you need to change the top speed its 268 instead of 286 i believe !
