Bugatti CEO promises to continue fighting for world's top speed record

Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport

We’ve learned a few things about Bugatti CEO, Wolfgang Durheimer, in the past few weeks, one of which is his increasingly apparent obsession with the world’s top speed record.

After telling CAR Magazine the importance of Bugatti maintaining the top speed record by saying that it’s "a cornerstone of the modern Bugatti philosophy" , Durheimer laid notice to everyone that if anybody wanted to try breaking the Veyron ’s record, then they’re going to get a pretty serious fight from Bugatti.

In an interview with Motor Trend, Durheimer had this to say: “You know we have the speed record with Bugatti and there are always rumors around that someone, maybe Koeniggsegg could come, and do another record. No matter where the Veyron project is if someone comes… we would strike back."

Fighting words, indeed.

For now, the Veyron is nearing its run and other automakers, particularly Koenigsegg and SSC , have released their new supercars - the Agera R and the Tuatara - with the intention of toppling the Veyron Super Sport’s 267.85 mph record. But if you heard Durheimer’s words, then all these other brands best be warned. Bugatti’s not conceding the world’s top speed record to anybody without a serious fight.

Snow balls in hell be damned; we’ve got a fight on our hands!

Great car. The design of this car is great. The color combinations of this car are also great. I want to have this some of a day and to test drive this car.

With the modern technology, there’re great chances in boosting the speed performance of the car into an amazing figure of 1000 hp. And I think Bugatti is not that only one that can upgrade their car into a high speed performing vehicle. 

There are a lot of manufacturer out there that wants to steal the record of the Bugatti as the world fastest vehicle! The Galibier only produced a 800 hp through Agera have almost 1000+ hp. Bugatti needs to work on this one. 

Bugatti is intimidated on what Koegnisegg can do. I want to see this car in racing.

Yeah! Fighting words! Hmm. It makes me think that Bugatti is threatened on what Koegnisegg can do. Well, since it is their major competition, they must be ready because as far as I know, Koegnisegg now has plans for their new creation.

With the modern vehicle nowadays it’s so possible that their will be a car that produced a power that is more than the Bugatti vehicle!

There are a lot of vehicle that deliver a power for about 1000 hp. I hope to see a race between its competitor.

I really love the styling of the Cabrio, I like the elegance on its exterior. The figure performance of the car is less powerful.

Based on what I knew, Bugatti car is the first one to have a high speed figure performance. However, with the newer vehicle that was out in the market, I would say that the competition is really tough.
