Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport

The world’s fastest and most exciting roadster

The world’s most significant celebration of the automobile takes place annually in Monterey, California. 2008 it saw some of the most elegant, exclusive, and valuable vehicles ever produced in over 100 years of motoring, with Bugatti playing a prominent role. On the evening prior to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the highlight of the event Bugatti unveiled a second model to the world – the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport with a unique removable roof.

Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand SportThe Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport will be available from March 2009 at the price of 1.4 million euros (excluding tax). Just 150 examples will be made, with the first 50 of these going exclusively to registered Bugatti customers. The first vehicle was certain to be highly sought after, and Bugatti took the decision to donate this specific car to charity. It was to the highest bidder at the Pebble Beach Auction presented by Gooding & Company for $ 3,190,000.

In response to customer demand, significant modifications have been made to the vehicle’s complex structure to make possible open-top driving, thereby adding a new dimension to this high-performance sports car. Incorporating a host of new and innovative safety and equipment features, it is the world’s fastest and most exciting roadster. It is immediately recognizable as a result of its slightly higher windscreen, stylized daytime running lights, and lightweight, transparent polycarbonate roof.

When the roof is closed, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport can reach 407 km/h, while speeds of up to 360 km/h are possible with roof off. Should it rain, an innovative folding roof stored in the luggage compartment can be opened up like an umbrella at any time. When this folding roof is in place, the car can travel at up to 130 km/h.
