It has a 1,200 hp, a maximum torque of 1,500 Nm, acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds and a top speed of 415 km/h – these were the performance specs that amazed and inspired experts and car fans throughout the world when this supercar was launched in 2010.

Guinness World Record

But that was not all. The same year, the Super Sport fulfilled the strict requirements of Guinness World Records and set a new world speed record for road cars of 431.072 km/h.

Despite numerous attempts to dethrone the Super Sport from its status as the fastest production supercar, the Bugatti remains unbeaten to this day. The guiding principle of the of the genius car designer Ettore Bugatti, who came from a family of artists, was to always encase perfect technology in an aesthetically appealing exterior.

The commitment lives on today: the designers gave the Veyron 16.4 Super Sport an utterly unique appearance- and at the same time, every single exterior modification serves to improve performance.
