Bugatti Veyron Super Sport Debuts, Will Hit 10mph Less Top Speed than Record

Besides being a new model, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport manages to become the fastest production car in the world. In the presence of the German TUV and officials from Guinness World Records, the Bugatti Super Sport was tested on the VW circuit in Ehra-Lessien, where it managed an average speed of 431 km/h. At first attempt, the Bugatti has reached a top speed of 427.933 km/h and on the way back recorded a speed of 434.211 km/h. TUV and Guinness World Records have calculated an average speed of 431.072 km/h (268 mph). These impressive figures are possible because of an increase in serious power potential. Bugatti Veyron Super Sports develops 1200 hp (882 kW) and 1500 Nm of torque; it`s top speed is electronic limited 415 km/h. The company says that this was done to protect the tires and that the sold units of the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport are identical to the one that set the record. The added power of this Bugatti comes from four enlarged turbochargers and larger intercoolers. Bugatti Veyron Super Sports`s chassis has also been redesigned to increase the car`s safety at high speeds.
