1200HP Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse

Bugatti revealed a new model, maybe one of the most powerful roadsters ever built, the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. The carmaker will present it to the world this year at the Geneva Motor Show that will take place next month. The specialists were a little scarce and didn?t reveal a lot of information on the model, but it seems that it will develop 1.200 horsepower and 1.500 Nm of torque. So that you understand better, it?s easier to think of it as the open-top version of the Veyron Super Sport as they have the same engine with the same output. To achieve this kind of power, the engineers equipped the 16-cylinder engine with four larger turbos and intercoolers. The car is limited to reach a top speed of 415 km/h, but it can reach a maximum speed of 431 km/h. It is expected to have bigger brakes and a modified chassis. We will have to wait for more information until next month.
