Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport Averages 431 Km/h

Bugatti’s latest Veyron version, the Super Sport, was taken to the track this weekend, where it managed to achieve a new landspeed world record for production cars, the company announced today. In fact, the new Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport averaged 431 km/h (268 mph) on Volkswagen's Ehra-Lessian grounds, in front of representatives from the German Technical Inspection Agency (TUV) and the Guinness Book of Records.

The orange/black car was driven by Bugatti’s official test pilot Henri Raphanel, who managed to take even the company’s engineering team by surprise. "We took it that we would reach an average value of 425 km/h," Bugatti's chief engineer Wolfgang Schreiber said in a release, "but the conditions today were perfect and allowed even more."

But what is so special about the Super Sport? Well, first off, the engine output has been increased from 1,001 horsepower to 1,200 horsepower and some 1,106 pound-feet of torque (1,500 Nm). This unit is mated to a seven-speed twin clutch gearbox. Secondly, the car also benefits from a newly developed aerodynamic kit, a redesigned chassis and an all-carbon fiber body structure.

The new Super Sport will be known as the World Record Edition and comes in the same black carbon and orange finish as the car that used to set the record. Production will be limited to just 5 units, all of which have reportedly been sold. Each example will have an electronically limited top speed of 258 mph (415 km/h) for tire protection.

This special edition will enter production this autumn, and is scheduled to make its public debut in California at the Pebble Beach Concours in mid-August. Pricing, however, is yet to be revealed.

Why the **** would they release such a machine too ignorant, rich Californian's?

Blows my ****ing mind. Half those dudes can barely handle a Gallardo without crashing it.

POINT:

LOL @ getting cut-off by a unicorn

Ummm they aren't releasing it to Californians, it's making it's "public debut in California at the Pebble Beach Concours in mid-August"

That means that the first time the public will be able to see the car in person is at the Pebble Beach Concours in California which is a very well known and prestigious car show that features only the creme de la creme when it comes to cars. It seemed like a fitting choice to me seeing as the car is worth north of a million $.

I understand what you meant, not that I agree with it.
Lets be honest, most of them will end up in Dubai.... which isn't any better

Well my whole point is these snobs can barely drive. And giving them the current, world's fastest production car is just silly.

Yea, but they already have basically the same thing alreay. Maybe not quite as fast but pretty damn fast. Its better than giving it to poor people because then there would be more of them. I think that rich ppl are better drivers then poor people.

I'm sure the car will have some type of stability control.
