Bugatti Veyron Super Sport
Just the name Bugatti Veyron Super Sport makes every post interesting! Only a few months ago the new Bugatti Veyron Super Sport achieved a land speed world record with 268 mph on Volkswagen Group’s proving ground at Ehra-Lessien nearby the German automaker’s Wolfsburg headquarters. In August, Bugatti presented the car in California for the very first time to the public at the prestigious 2010 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
Now, Bugatti has released a flood of new images of the Veyron Super Sport, revealing every tiny detail, from the hand-stitched leather to the 1,200 horsepower power gauge to the rivets of the car’s quad-turbocharged 16 cylinder W-18 engine.
The shots were taken at Spain’s Andalusia, where beautifully landscaped fields, green mountains and lonely roads, matched the beauty of the "Bugatti Veyron Super Sport" that roared through its hills.
Several months back we got our first look the the new Veyron Super Sport when Bugatti debuted the car by announcing it had been certified by the Guinness Book of Records as the World’s Fastest Car. Driven by Bugatti official test diver Pierre Henri Raphanel at the Ehra-Lessian high-speed test track in Germany, the Veyron Super Sport achieved a top speed of 267.81 mpg, far exceeding the original Veyron’s 253.81 mph speed.
