On a beautiful sunny day at 25 degrees the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport achieved a new landspeed world record for production vehicles, on the proving grounds of the Volkswagen Group at Ehra-lessien (nearby its headquarters at Wolfsburg).
The world's most significant celebration of the automobile takes place annually in Monterey, California. In 2009, it saw some of the most elegant, exclusive, and valuable cars ever manufactured in over 100 years of motoring, with Bugatti playing a prominent role.
In a further highlight on 2009's agenda of centennial celebrations, Bugatti Automobiles S. introduced four Bugatti Veyron specials at Villa D'este Concorso D'eleganza. These one off models are reminders of Bugatti's glorious motor-racing history which played a central role in popularising and ultimately establishing the myth which the make continues to enjoy to this day.
The Bugatti Veryron is, by every measure, the world's fastest production road car. It's the quickest to 60, it has the highest top speed, and it can absolutely dominate a track. With a claimed 1001 horsepower, the Veyron is a major technical achievement. Its engine has 16 cylinders, essentially formed by joining two V8 engines at the crank. This W16 powerplant displaces 8.
