Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse is the world's fastest open-top production car


It looks like that Bugatti will hold for one more year the title of the manufacturer with the fastest open-top production car in the world, since after the Veyron Super Sport, this year it's time for its open-roofed twin, the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse to hold this title. Chinese race driver Anthony Liu took the Grand Sport Vitesse to 408Km/h (!) on Volkswagen’s Ehra-Lessien test track, the same place where the Veyron Super Sport hit 431 Km/h in 2010.

The Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse is essentially a topless version of the Super Sport. It has the same quad-turbocharged W16 engine, which produces 1,200 horsepower and 1,106 pound-feet of torque. It also features similar aerodynamic modifications and a variation of the SS’ black and orange war paint. But if all these aren't enough for you, and you wanna go faster than anyone else while getting a suntan, Bugatti is building eight World Record Car Edition models to commemorate this Grand Sport Vitesse’s achievement. All eight of these cars will come in the same black and orange color scheme as the car that actually broke the record, and cost around $2.6 million each.

Just so you know, the record of Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse was certified by independent adjudicators from Germany’s TÜV, who gave the title.
