The end of the road for the Bugatti Veyron may be approaching just as fast as it does when the top-speed exotic shatters the top speed world record on a track (254.04 mph). Before all good things come to an end, they like to shine brightly as the Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse does making a private appearance in China at the Shanghai Motor Show. Here are a few images capturing the fine details of the Bugatti Veyron Grans Sport Vitesse in its full multi-million-dollar glory.

Current Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse

Recent reports have confirmed Bugatti working on a successor to the Veyron, which could end up being a hybrid. Chief engineer Jens Schulenburg, told Auto Express that “We are working on the next super-sports car.”

Of course the Bugatti Galibier, appearing as stunning Luxury-Exotic concept a few years ago, will still be in the new lineup expected to debut in 2014 alongside of the Veyron successor. What tips us off as the Veyron successor potentially being a hybrid, is Schulenburg saying “The big challenge on the next car will be reducing weight – we are looking at some incredible technologies, such as wheels made entirely from carbon fibre. Hybrids are definitely something we’re looking at, too.”

Could you imagine a new Veyron with over 1,000 horsepower sporting a hodgepodge of electric motors and a big petrol engine? I sure could, as long as it makes some cool noise and pushes the current top speed of 268 mph to the next few notches.

It was just a week back that we saw the last Bugatti Veyron 16.4 being sold to a European customer. But much to our surprise, Bugatti has now unveiled a special version of the Grand Sport model, with porcelain finish. We just got to see a stunning version of the Grand sport with an amazing paint job, that sports flashy white and blue mix.

Bugatti has custom made the Grand Sport L’Or Blanc (White Gold) and showed it off. The car comes with porcelain elements in and out; quite unlikely for a high speed motor car convertible.

Going by what Sales and Marketing Director Dr. Stefan Brungs feels, the new White Gold brings in “exceptional ideas whilst striving for the utmost in quality and aesthetics”. The L’Or Blanc edition will cost €1.65 ($2.40 / £1.49) million.

The next model of Bugatti Veyron will offer a top speed of 270 mph. This is said to be at the helm of the record top speed set by the current model Veyron Super Sport.

The forthcoming model will feature different look, adapting certain inspired features from the original Veyron concept. 8.0 liter W16 engine laden with four turbochargers coupled to a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox will power the vehicle. It will yield an output of 1,200 bhp (895 kW / 1217 PS) and 1,500 Nm of torque, similar to that of the current model Veyron.

The new Veyron will have a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time of around 2.5 seconds and slightly inch past the Super Sport’s performance numbers by means of weight-saving measures. The vehicle will incorporate thinner glass and lighter alloy wheels to reduce overall weight by about 100 kg (220 lbs) as compared to its predecessor.

The new Veyron with a price tag of over £1 million (€1.2 million), is to debut sometime in 2013 and will go on sale in 2014.

SSC Ultimate Aero To Launch On August 8; Will It Defeat The Bugatti Veyron? 27

The second generation Aero, called the Ultimate Aero, from Shelby Sports Cars will be unveiled by the company on August 8th at the Boeing Flight Museum in Seattle. The Ultimate Aero is SSC’s attempt to regain its title of “fastest road car in the world” from current title holder Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.

The Bugatti Veyron had achieved its title after breaking the 255.83 mph record set by the previous model of the Aero called the Ultimate Aero TT. The new Ultimate Aero will require more than the 1,183 hp present in the Aero TT to become faster than the Veyron Super Sport, which has a 1,200 hp-engine and has set a record top speed of 268 mph.

The designer of the new Ultimate Aero, Jason Castriota, will also have to make sure that the design does not cause aerodynamic drag, besides ensuring better power features for the car.

So does the Veyron Super Sport have a reason to be scared? The answer will be revealed on August 8.



Bugatti Veyron Super Sport Smashes Speed Record 5

Who is the fastest on the tarmac? If you thought it was the Shelby SuperCars’ Aero SSC TT that fits the bill as the fastest production car in the world, think again!

Bugatti has climbed on to the top position, post a June 26 drive when test driver Pierre Henri Raphanel drove an orange-and-black Veyron 16.4 Super Sport to an average top speed of 268 mph (431 kph).

The event that got underway at the VW Group’s test facility at Ehra-Leissien saw the Veyron Super Sport tumble all high-speed records. The question as to who is the fastest has been remaining unanswered for quite a while now.

The Veyron Super Sport is a much higher version that the usual Veyron we usually get to see. The company has thrown in additional power and has increased it to 1,200 hp, while the quad turbo W16 would return torque at 1,106 pound-feet.

The car has ensured this via its enlarged turbochargers and intercoolers. The company has also incorporated in the Veyron Super Sport a redone suspension that is capable of managing aero downforce at speeds about 260 mph.
