Bugatti Veyron Super Sport Debuts At Pebble Beach

The fastest production car recently made its North American debut at the 60th Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and Bugatti in a new blue midnight color.

Though the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport is capable of reaching 431.072 km/h (267.856 mph), its speed has been electronically limited to 415 km/h (258 mph).

Bugatti says the consumer vehicle will have identical specs, but the limitation was necessary to protect the car’s tires.

Its engine is tuned to deliver 1,200 hp (882 kW), a 20 percent gain over the already massive Veyron 16.4, and up to 1,500 Nm (1106 lb-ft) of torque.

The unit sends its power to all four wheels using a seven speed twin clutch transmission.

The hypercar also comes with enhanced aerodynamics, a re-engineered chassis and a body structure that uses carbon fiber.

Accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport takes some 2.5 seconds, or 7.3 seconds from 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) and 15 seconds from 0 to 300 km/h (186 mph).

The production of this awesome racer will start in autumn and it will be limited to 40 units only.

The first five units will be finished in the same exposed carbon and orange livery, used for the successful record attempt.
