Reportedly, the 8.0-liter W16 engine and its quad-turbo setup will return in a similar form as is employed in the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. However, the new car will head to the scales and produce a number far below what we see in current Veyron models.

Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport sets 431km/h Record

Bugatti well known for its super luxury hyper car, has just set another bar in the automotive world. Officially revealed just few days back, the current top of the range – Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sports has just set a World Record and make an entry to the Guinness Book of Record with 431km/h.


Painted with Black and bright orange highlight some of the body parts making the Luxurious Hypercar – Bugatti Veyron much sportier and striking as we see. The  Veyron Super Sport is lighther and faster. The 8.0 L W16 quad-turbocharged engine has been tuned to do 1200HP which is 199HP more than a standard Veyron.


Bugatti team took the limited edition Bugatti Veyron Super Sport to VW Group’s High Speed Oval test track in Germany.  With the presents of representative from Guinness Book of Records, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport sets a new world record of a fastest production car ever made. The car is expected to make 425km/h  but however with some weather luck on Bugatti’s side, the car was able to do an average of 431.07 hm/h. This was calculated as average in such of 427.993 km/h from South to North and a top speed of 434,211 km/h from the opposite direction.

However the production unit will be limited to 415km/h from the ECU to protects the Veyron Super Sport’s tyre. A normal version of the Veyron does a top speed of 407km/h. The engineers of Bugatti gave a bigger turbo charge and of course a even bigger intercooler to boost it’s performance. Along with that, an increase from 1,250 Nm of  torque to 1500Nm. Bugatti did not claim Bugatti Veyron Super Sport 0-100km/h time but however, our guess is the Veyron Super Sport will be slight faster than the standard 2.2 seconds.


Other performance upgrades are the suspensions, a strengthen stabiliser and a brand new shock absorbers. To make it lighter than a standard Veyron, Bugatti gave the Super Sport a new fibre structure while it’s outer body part a 100% carbon-fibre material. The Bugatti Veyron has also modified the air intakes and rear bumper with double diffuser and a centred exhaust to become the Super Sport edition. Like the Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV the Bugatti Veyron’s interior is also revised to match it’s striking exterior colour and design. End of the day, how much will this cost as compare to a standard Veyron which is about 1.7 Million USD ? More details of this Sport version of an Hypercar – Bugatti Veyron Super Sport in mid August as it will make appearance in California.
