Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Gets Rearview Camera, Here's The Integration

You don't need to drive a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse to figure out reversing in such an octane behemoth isn't the easiest maneuver in the world. Sure, on paper, you can hit 254 mph (409 km/h) in your senior hypercar, but sometimes parking can turn into a nightmare due to the poor visibility.

Fortunately, you don't have to hire a team of scientists for a solution to such an issue, which is actually common among supercar and hypercar users. While much, much more affordable vehicles released half a decade ago (as is the case with this Veyron) packed rearview cameras, Bugatti wouldn't be bothered with such features, letting owners struggle on their own.

Nevertheless, you don't buy such a car to struggle. As a result, the owner of the Grand Sport Vitesse in the video below turned to the aftermarket side of the industry, installing such a feature in the central rearview mirror. And with 1,200 horses on tap, having the parking part of your adventures covered means those waiting for you to make a mistake will be disappointed.

Sure, the small size of the display and the potential glare mean this solution isn't perfect, but it's certainly an improvement over asking your SO to step out of the car and tell you what's going on, for instance.

After decades that saw high-performance machine builders treating their customers as if they had superhuman abilities, we've finally reached an age when high-octane drivers are no longer expected to travel with the credit card as luggage or have 360-degree vision.

Sure, we still get hypercar with pockets instead of luggage compartments (the LaFerrari is probably the best example of this), but at least things have started to change, as more and more supercars and hypercars get factory rearview cameras, for instance.

P.S.: While we're at it, we have to tell you that, last year, Buick became the world's first carmaker that fits its entire line-up with such cameras as standard.
