On a beautiful sunny day at 25 degrees the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport achieved a new landspeed world record for production cars, on the proving grounds of the Volkswagen Group at Ehra-Lessien (nearby its headquarters at Wolfsburg). In the presence of the German Technical Inspection Agency (TÜV) and a representative of Guinness Book of Records the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport achieved an average top speed of 431 km/h.
"We took it that we would reach an average value of 425 km/h," explains Bugatti's chief engineer Dr. Wolfgang Schreiber, "but the conditions today were perfect and allowed even more."
Had a model been especially popular or highly successful in races, Ettore Bugatti's customers often pushed the master to tease out of the engine a few horsepower more for their future car. Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. had been in a similar situation when their existing customers asked the company to not only design their second model optically differently but to also create a version with a sportier and more extreme driving experience. The result is a car with a uniquely high performance of 1,200-hp (882 kW) offering experienced drivers a whole new dimension of excitement, with a maximum torque of 1,500 Newton metres and a limited top speed of 415 km/h (to protect the tyres) but, the technique of the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is identical to the record car. The first five Bugatti Veyron Super Sports to come off the production line will constitute a special series of their own, with the same configuration as the landspeed record car.
The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is a consequent of the further development of the classic exclusive 1,001-hp Bugatti Veyron 16.4, launched in 2005. This model offers a stunning set of specifications, such as the twin clutch gearbox with seven speeds, the extraordinarily precise driving performance in bends and excellent stability when braking and accelerating.
Consistent work in great execution extents lead to always new conclusions, which empowered the specialists at Bugatti to form the Veyron into a heading in which the driver can reach new measurements. Each adjustment is intended to deliver a considerably all the more effective auto for a dexterous ride. Four broadened turbochargers and greater intercoolers have been utilized to support the force of the 16-barrel motor, and the skeleton has been widely overhauled to keep up wellbeing at compelling velocity - on account of marginally raised heart travel, more grounded stabilizers, and new safeguards with a perplexing structural planning initially created for hustling autos. This gives perceptibly more exact control of the haggles auto in general. With sidelong increasing speed of up to 1.4 G and enhanced association between the tires and the smart all-wheel drive framework, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport offers impeccable taking care of and significantly all the more capable quickening of 1,500 Newton meters on corner ways out.
