Bugatti Veyron Super Sport Video Released

Bugatti is one of the brands that likes to rewrite automotive history every once in a while. Backed by VW Group’s resources and also receiving and ego boost from the German company, the French carmaker managed to claim a new landspeed record for a production vehicle.

The automaker’s Veyron 16.4 Super Sport managed to average 431 km/h (268 mph) on the Ehra-Lessian Volkswagen test track, with the performance being validated by the German Technical Inspection Agency (TUV) and by the Guinness Book of Records.

Now, Bugatti has released a video of the car. The piece of media includes motion, but unfortunately the only thing truly moving is the point of view. The car is almost stationary, but is still manages to impress, allowing us to get a closer look to many of its parts.

As a reminder, we’ll tell you that the Veyron Super Sport uses an engine that has been tweaked to develop 1,200 hp and a maximum torque of 1,106 lb-ft (1,500 Nm). The unit sends its power to all four wheels using a seven speed twin clutch transmission. The hypercar also comes with enhanced aerodynamics, a re-engineered chassis and a body structure that uses carbon fiber.

However, the public destined version will have an electronically limited top speed of 415 km/h (258 mph), with the decision being taken for tire safety reasons. Only 5 mortals will have the privilege to enjoy the car, which will be presented to the public at the Pebble Beach Concours that takes place in August in California. The pricing? A (still) well kept secret.

You can enjoy the Super Sport incarnation of the Veyron in the video bellow:
