Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Gris Rafale in Brazil

European carmaker Bugatti had a lot of success with its Veyron 16.4 Super Sport and now, for the 2012 Sao Paulo International Motor Show, the luxury car manufacturer has prepared the new Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. Thanks to its 7.9-liter W16 engine the model is capable of producing 1.200 horsepower and 1.500 Nm of torque. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.6 seconds and to reach a top speed of 410 km/h. After analyzing these figures, we can say with all confidence that this is the fastest production roadster ever. To obtain this incredible power the engineers have used four larger turbochargers with new intercoolers and reinforced all drive train components. The chassis of the Grand Sport Vitesse has been reconfigured as well. The control of the vehicle was perfectly balanced and further improved.

To handle the extra power, the specialists have provided the brake-cooling system which now has more and larger air intakes. In terms of aerodynamics, the specialists have offered a lot of new elements to the new Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Gris Rafale. The rear end features a double diffuser and a twin tailpipe situated at the center. For the interior, the designers have used a lot of carbon fiber. A lot of the components are made of this material. To be more precise, we are talking about the center console extension and the belt outlet covers on the seats. Most parts of the upper area of the body are finished in Gris Rafale, but the roof area, air scoops, air brakes and more are covered in blue visible carbon.

The ones interested in one of these incredible supercars should know that the carmaker established a starting price of EUR1.9 million. Of course, this amount is nothing for a true enthusiast, right?
