Watch the revised video of Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse in action. 1200HP, 0-100km/h in 2.6 seconds and a top speed of 410km/h are just a few of the car’s vital statistics. However, words alone will never do justice to this automotive masterpiece.
This is a car that demands to be seen, a car guaranteed to send shivers down your spine the moment you hear the distinctive roar of its W16 engine.
At the front and rear, numerous aerodynamic measures that appeared on the Super Sport have been adapted for the Grand Sport Vitesse. The front end is therefore characterized by larger air intakes; the two central air intakes to the left and right of the radiator grille are horizontally divided by a bar. The bottom air vent stretches sideways into the wheel housing and lends this exceptional sports car an extremely high-performance appearance. The rear end, like on the Super Sport, is characterized by a double diffuser and a centrally positioned twin tailpipe. A new Park Distance Control system (PDC) integrated in the front and the rear makes parking easy.

At the French Grand Prix at Lyon in 1924, Bugatti unveiled a new production racing car, the famous Type 35. They were officially campaigned in every possible competitive event until 1930, during which this little jewel recorded a huge number of successes in the hand of Works drivers and private drivers. Today, it remains the symbol of the Bugatti marque. Throughout production, there were a number of variations offered by the factory for the Type 35, including supercharged versions, but always based on the eight cylinder engine. A four cylinder variant was introduced at the end of 1925 and designated the Type 37. It benefitted from the same chassis, and with a few alterations, the same chassis as its bigger sister. The Type 37 was renowned for its lightness, nimbleness and reliability, and was good for 145kph. Over the four years of production, approximately 270 examples were completed, of which many have disappeared, due to being worn out by active sporting careers. So, original examples with continuous history such as the car on offer today, are extremely rare.
