Last week the Bugatti Veyron was rather unceremoniously stripped of its “worlds fastest production car” title by Guinness. The record keepers justification was based upon the record setting cars safety limiter being turned off, something only 8 of the production cars were capable of doing. Each Super Sport Veyron is capable of reaching its record breaking speed but on the grounds of safety, not limitation, Bugatti peg the car at 258MPH. Undeterred, the legendary brand launch themselves back into the record books.
The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse becomes the worlds fastest open-top car setting a speed of 254MPH. Driven by Chinese racing driver, Anthony Liu, the car is mechanically identical to any other Vitesse but does sport a fresh black and orange paint job. Making its debut at the Shanghai motor show, only 8 world record edition cars will be produced at a cost of £1,690,000 each.
