BUGATTI VEYRON SUPER SPORT WRE

World Record Edition, car no 1 out of 9.




HISTORY

It has a 431.072 km/h top speed, making it the fastest road car in production, although it is electronically limited to  415.07 km/h to protect the tyres from disintegrating. The first five of an unannounced production run made its debut in a visible carbon finish and orange color combination.

The public debut was at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in August 2010.

The Super Sport was featured on Series 15, Episode 5 of Top Gear, where presenter, James May attempted to set the speed record. It managed  417.00 km/h, briefly setting a new production car speed record. Later in the day though, one of Bugatti's test drivers Pierre Henri Raphanel broke May's previous record, claiming it through runs in both directions and registering an average top speed of 431.072 km/h. The car then went round the Top Gear Test Track and topped the lap leader board with a 1:16.8 time, beating the 1:17.1 record set previously by the Gumpert Apollo Sport.

The body has been fine tuned to improve aerodynamic efficiency and maintain perfect balance in every situation, while the new fibre structure of the all carbon monocoque ensures maximum torsion rigidity and passive safety - at reduced weight. The skin is made entirely of carbon fibre composites, and the new Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport is available in 100 percent clear-lacquered exposed carbon on request.
