Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse at Geneva 2012
Fundamentally, the latest roadster is an open version of the 16.4 Super Sport Coupé. So, in addition to 1200HP, the mighty 16-cylinder engine now produces 1500Nm torque. As a coupé, so-equipped, 100km/h from standstill comes up in under three seconds, with a maximum speed of 430km/h.
It’s likely that this will be the last-ever version of the standard-setting ‘fastest car of all time’. Its successor could be a luxury saloon, in the form of the Galibier concept.
