Wink Bugatti Veyron record speed



"May 7, 2005

Bugatti Veyron officially the fastest of all!
Bugatti finally has proven their promise: On the Volkswagen test-circuit Ehra-Lessien, under supervision of the TüV Süddeutschland a speed of over 400km/h was attained. When the Bugatti will reach production stage in september, it will be the fastest production car (until now: the Koenigsegg CCR with 387.9 km/h).
The official top speed (I do not have an actual number yet) was noted on several runs, and in both directions. It is stated that it was over 400 km/h, but not how much over. Bugatti always stated a figure of 407 km/h, so we´ll have to see if they reached that."

it's really hard to get this thing airborn unless you have the spoiler mounted upside down. Wonder if the tires can handle that speed though...

Michelin made tires especially for the Vayron.
ANd part of teh reason why it took so long is developing proper stability for the car at that speed.
