A sportier Veyron that offered a more extreme driving experience, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport unveiled in 2010 at the Monterey Motorsports Reunion was the fastest thing on wheels at the time.
Designed for the existing customers who were asking for a sportier version, the Veyron Super Sport was produced in 30 units only.
Besides increased power, the new model was actually different from the regular Veyron, with nearly 20%, featuring a completely different gearbox software, a new suspension, a new aero package, new tires, new wheels, updated brakes and many others.
The front end had been redesigned to allow more air to flow through the radiators as cooling for such a powerful engined needed improvement. At the rear, the Super Sport featured a new double diffuser for the new exhaust system.
Unimaginably fast, the Super Sport version got 200 extra ponies under its hood, reaching a total of 1200 hp. At lower speeds, the fast Veyron could have been considered docile, but its powerful engine rocketed it to a maximum of 415 km/h. And 415 km/h was the imposed limit, to avoid tire disintegration. The Super Sport was capable of 0-100 km/h in 2.5 seconds and 0-300-0 km/h in just 22.5 seconds.
You could expect that a vehicle as fast as the Veyron was, to offer a firm ride and probably a bit uncomfortable one. Unexpectedly, the Super Sport Veyron was very refined, as refined as the luxurious Bentley GT.
Inside, the cabin was refreshed and became even more exquisite and nicer than before, with a new leather steering wheel and other details.
The few lucky people who got to own the Veyron Super Sport had a vehicle that was not only extremely fast, but very comfortable and with a good value even after many, many years.
