The Bugatti Veyron tops 400 Km/h!

At the end of last month the Bugatti Veyron achieved a top speed of over 400 Km/h (248.5 mph). This result was realised on the high speed section of the Volkswagen proving grounds at Ehra - Lessien.

The test was supervised by the German Homologation Authority "TÜV Süddeutschland" and officially chronometred by their precision measuring units. The car managed to reach this speed several times and in both directions, as required by the official measuring procedures.

A company spokesman said "The Bugatti super-sports-car has thus attained yet another major goal in it ambitious development process."
