These past few weeks have been full with Bugatti Veyron news, with the most important one being its new 254 mph record established by a Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. Today it’s time to see the Veyron in action one more time, but this time in its Gran Sport variant.
The supercar was pushed to the extremes by 2004 Le Mans winner, Seiji Ara, at Fuji Speedway. The great part of this video is that it presents not only the car in action on the racetrack, but it also offers some of the Ara’s impressions.
The Grand Sport is powered by the same 8-liter W-16 engine that develops a total of 1,001 horsepower and 921 pound-feet of torque. The supercar can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 2.7 seconds and can hit a top speed of 252 mph, but it is limited to 217 mph with the roof down.
