Video: Chris Harris drives the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

If you had ten million dollars to your name, nobody’s going to blame you if you spend one-fifth of that fortune on a car, provided it’s a 2011 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. As the last and most powerful Veyron to ever come out of Bugatti’s production block, the Super Sport is without question, at the peak of the Veyron hierarchy.

EVO’s Chris Harris was afforded the opportunity to take the 1,200 horsepower beast out for a test drive. Harris has already been behind the wheel of some of the world’s fastest machines, but the Super Sport, as he will attest, is on a totally different level.

It’s so fast and addicting that Harris occasionally reminded himself to step off the gas as soon as stepping on it out of fear of breaking any laws. According to Harris, two seconds on the gas will send you to jail – if a cop sees you, that is. Five seconds on the pedal and you’ll be on-board one of the fastest machines on the planet.

That’s how ridiculously fast it is. If you’ve ever seen a multi-million dollar car that’s worth every buck and penny of its asking price, it’s the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. Hands down.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Insanely fast but I would never buy one even if I had that kind of money. There are so many more cars I’d rather have instead of this.

There was a Veyron and the 57C Atlantic this past Art Center Car Classic, sitting next to each other. I also tailed a blue and white Veyron for about 3 miles in San Diego on the 5 North a year ago.

I maybe one of the few who says this but, it’s hard to get excited about cars you will never see, drive or even step foot inside.
