The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is the result of further development of the classic exclusive 1.001 bhp Bugatti Veyron 16.4, which was launched back in 2005. This new version offers a stunning set of specifications, such as the twin clutch gearbox with seven speeds, the extraordinarily precise driving performance in bends and excellent stability when braking and accelerating.
Four enlarged turbochargers and bigger inter-coolers have been used to boost the power of the 16-cylinder engine, and the chassis has been extensively redesigned to maintain safety at extreme speed. Thanks to slightly raised main-spring-rate, stronger stiffer Anti-Roll-bars, and new shock absorbers with a complex architecture originally developed for racing cars. This gives noticeably more precise control of the wheels and the car as a whole. With lateral acceleration of up to 1.4 G and improved interaction between the tires and the intelligent all-wheel drive system, the Super Sport offers perfect handling and even more powerful acceleration of 1.500 Newton meters on corner exits.
The body has been fine-tuned to improve aerodynamic efficiency and maintain perfect balance in every situation, while the new fiber structure of the all-carbon monocoque ensures maximum torsion rigidity and passive safety – at reduced weight. The skin is made entirely of carbon-fiber composites, and the new Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is available in 100 percent clear-lacquered exposed carbon on request.
Bugatti have managed to bump up the horsepower on the standard Veyron from 1,001hp to 1,200hp, plus with the help of a new and improved body kit this special edition hypercar can reach speeds of up to 257.9mph (415km/h).
The car can actually go a lot faster, but it’s limited for customer safety. The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport needs just 2.5 seconds
to reach 60mph (100 km/h), 7.3 seconds to hit 120mph (200 km/h) and 16.7 seconds to reach 180mph (300 km/h). Its gearbox shift time is 0.1 seconds.
The official Bugatti Veyron Super Sport specs say the car has a fuel consumption of 37.2 liters / 100 km in the urban cycle and 23.2 liters / 100 km in the combined cycle.
The Super Sport’s flat, elongated silhouette is immediately recognizable. The 16-cylinder engine gets its air from two NACA ducts set into the roof, rather than from scoops above the engine. The front air intakes have been expanded and reshaped, with the lower one extending elegantly around the sides to the wheel arch. The revised back looks sportier due to the double diffuser and a centrally arranged exhaust system.
The Super Sport has recently set the land speed record for a production car, it was recorded hitting speeds of 265.9 and 269.8 mph and was finally given an average terminal velocity of 267.81 mph, a new world record for a production car.
