2012 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Super Sport

Posted on by + 34

A few years ago, Bugatti had set out to create the world’s fastest convertible car. They wanted "a car that would redefine the boundaries of technology in automotive construction while appealing to the aesthetically inclined and connoisseurs of exceptional automobiles." This idea gave birth to the Veyron Grand Sport which debuted at the Pebble Beach Concours in 2008. Then, in 2010, Bugatti revealed the Veyron 16.4 Super Sport which had already been entered into the Guinness Book of Records with an average top speed of 431 km/h (267 mph). These two Bugatti models have had a successful go around in the automotive world, but at the tail end of the Veyron’s production, Bugatti has decided to smash these two vehicles together for one last and unforgettable special edition. World, meet the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Super Sport.

Just last week, Bugatti CEO, Wolfgang Durheimer, was discussing a future special edition displaying a Super Sport package for the Veyron Grand Sport model - the Veyron’s open top model. We figured this vehicle would be seen in a couple of years, but our spy photographers have already captured the first images of the vehicle entirely free of its camouflage.

UPDATE 01/04/2012: Bugatti has confirmed that the convertible version of the Veyron Super Sport will be making its world debut in March at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

Hit the jump for more details on the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Super Sport.

From these images we can see that the NACA air ducts that usually are on the Super Sport model have been changed for the normal Grand Sport air intakes. This is due to the fact that the NACA air ducts will not work with the open top aspect of the vehicle. Some changes might also be hidden under the minimal camouflage found on the front bumper, but only time will tell what those may be.

The Bugatti Veyron line all carry the same 8.0 liter W16 engine, but the SuperSport’s output is much higher (1200 HP) compared to the Grand Sport’s (1001 HP) due to the use of four enlarged turbochargers and bigger intercoolers. We expect Bugatti to follow along this same turbocharged path for the Grand Sport Super Sport, albeit in a tamer way. Durheimer has already said that the 1200 HP out put found in the Super Sport would be too much, but that more than 1,001 HP would be "absolutely possible."

Expect the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Super Sport’s price tag to fall somewhere in the middle of the Grand Sport ($1.9M) and the Super Sport ($2.4M).

Bugatti Veyron looks so cool on its neat body paint, and it really looks very stylish on its exterior. Moreover, the technology that this one has is truly very interesting on it. It’s a good thing as well that it has a nice engine.

It looks so cool and neat on its white body paint, and it is really appropriate on it. However, I’m truly curious if what will be the interior of a Bugatti Veyron vehicle would look like?

Well, I must say that I absolutely love the hygienic body paint of this one, it is so striking and very lovely about that. smiley However, I’m quite wondering if what will be the interior of this one will look like.

Bugatti cars are really cool for me! Aside from having a super powerful engine, I have to say that the appearances of their cars are really looking so awesome and can captivate lots of attention.

I love the stylish and hygienic looks of this Bugatti Veyron, and I’m impressed with the fact that it is the fastest car in the race world. smiley It is too pricey, but this kind of car is worth the money spent for.

Wow, amazing car concept highly techno car. Very futuristic too. Thumbs up as being the world’s fastest convertible car. Very high innovative and enthusiast car.

Unlike to the another car the design of Bugatti is more stylish, the bumper of the car speak up they are unique from the other car company.

It’s always been my dream to ride on a cool and fast car, but find it hard to afford it. I heard that it is also the same type of car that Beyonce gave to JC on his birthday? Correct me if I’m wrong.

Just like what I have said as long as there’s an aftermarket company we can still a modified version of this car. And I think with the high technology nowadays its not impossible to experience the 1000 hp in a supercar!

Wow! I’m so great to see this vehicle! I have heard that the last unit of the Veyron was already sold out somewhere in the Europe. Bugatti is releasing the Galibier as the successor of the Veyron.

It seems that it is not a convertible car smiley but I must agree with them that one is an amazing car and really had an impressive styling and platform design.

This is an amazing car. Although it is a convertible car, the speed is not reduced even a bit! I can say that the Bugatti manufacturer is one of the creators of exotic yet powerful cars. I will wait for their newest production.

it seems that the vehicle is already using the modern engine. The deliver output of this technology is kind of impressive.

yeah, I have heard about the world breaking record of Bugatti car. I’m really impressed with the figure performance of the car. And I love to see a more sporty look from the vehicle.
