Bugatti has confirmed the production of the Targa version of the Veyron supercar. It will be unveiled at a major motor show in 2009. It will be limited to only 80 units, each priced at £900,000 (around $1,777,000).

The Veyron Targa will be powered by a 987bhp 6.0-liter W16 engine. The hard top will be removable and there will be no space for it to be stored inside the car.

To cope with the loss of structural rigidity brought about by the removal of the roof, engineers will reinforce the Veyron’s chassis – a process which is likely to add to the model’s already hefty 1,950kg kerb-weight. As a result, the Targa won’t quite match the performance of the coupe version – the maximum speed will be limited to 217mph. That’s still quicker than the Pagani Zonda Roadster, though.
