If you’re still looking for an excuse to attend Geneva Motor Show this year, look no further. Please be upstanding for the most powerful factory-built roadster in the history – Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse (which means ‘Speed’ in French). It combines the ultimate performance enhancements of the Super Sport coupe with the open-top appeal of the conventional Grand Sport convertible.
Just like everything that Bugatti does with the Veyron lately, the Grand Sport Vitesse is completely ridiculous and over-the-top. According to Bugatti, the model is considered the most powerful serial produced convertible in the world, boasting of a monstrous 16-cylinder engine that produces an output of 1,200 horsepower. In order to accommodate the increased pony output, Bugatti engineers carefully modified the car’s chassis while also adding four enlarged turbochargers and intercoolers to the car’s overall technical equation.
Those numbers are Veyron-like, too, which is to say that they’ll sell of around €2 million.
