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.
The two air scoops to the left and right of the engine cover that are a characteristic of the Grand Sport and thus also of the Grand Sport Vitesse fulfil two tasks of the roadster: on the one hand, they pull in air for the engine, while on the other they are an elegantly integrated part of the roll-over protection system. The Grand Sport Vitesse also makes use of a full carbon fibre monocoque, which achieves an extremely high torsional rigidity of 22,000 Nm per degree, allowing maximum passive safety. Unlike the Grand Sport, the outer skin of the Vitesse is also completely made of carbon fibre; optionally, the new Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse is also available in clear-coated visible carbon
The Vitesse’s W16 is capable of 1200 hp (882 kW) and a peak torque of 1500 Nm. To receive the added horsepower, Bugatti have fitted larger turbo chargers in the quad arrangement to the Vitesse’s 16-cylinder engine along with larger scoops feeding the engorged intercoolers, while to match that extra power they also tweaked the chassis hinting at more “COMFORT” yes comfort and probably some revised suspension to adapt to the higher output.
Thanks to these modifications, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse is capable of sprinting to 62 mph (100 km/h) in only 2.6 seconds (projected) and can hit a top speed of 255 mph (410 km/h).
