The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport shook the auto industry off its hinges when it debuted a couple of weeks ago and, in seemingly pedestrian fashion, proceeded to set the world speed record by clocking 268 mph at Volkswagen’s Ehra-Lessein track in Germany.
Not that we’re surprised by how fast the souped-up Veyron is – it’ a Bugatti, after all – but it was how it came out out nowhere and just grabbed the world’s attention in one fell swoop.
Now that it’s become the talk of the auto world, the Veyron 16.4 Super Sport has been getting its fair share of fans, all of which have been looking for the perfect opportunity to see the 1,200 horsepower beast up close and personal. Fortunately, the boys from Diariomotor chanced upon the golden goose when it was being tested somewhere in Spain and joined by two seemingly irrelevant standard Veyrons that completely lost their appeal when in the company of the record-setting 16.4 Super Sport.
Bugatti’s new supercar, which boasts of an 8.0-liter W16 engine that comes with four enlarged turbochargers and super-size intercoolers producing 1,200 horsepower and 1,106 lb/ft of torque, will head over to the production block later this year where a limited number of models will be produced for those rich enough to afford it.
