Oh the beautiful sounds of a car’s engine as it hums its way around a track. Nothing can beat that sound, not even the tires screeching as they make their way around the bend. Unfortunately, when The Stig took the Bugatti Veyron SS out for a spin on the Top Gear track, the sounds coming from the engine were barely audible as the beautifully fast supercar was given the opportunity to show just how miraculous its capabilities are.
The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport comes with a 16-cylinder engine that has four enlarged turbochargers and bigger intercoolers to offer up a total of 1200hp. The chassis was completely redesigned to handle such speeds by the use of a raised main-spring travel, stronger stabilizers, and new shock absorbers with a complex architecture originally developed for racing cars. With lateral acceleration of up to 1.4 G and improved interaction between the tires and the intelligent all-wheel drive system, the Super Sport offers perfect handling and even more powerful acceleration of 1,500 NM on corner exits.
The Bugatti has already achieved top Guiness Book honors by hitting an average top speed of 267.81 miles per hour, but how did it fare on the Top Gear track? Will it take the throne as the fastest or will it just fall short? Only one way to find out...
