In Bugatti company assets already there is the world record of the speed established in 2010 by the Veyron Super Sport car which managed to disperse to the speed of 430.98 km/h. But, recently in the world there were some cars of other producers which speed closely came nearer to Veyron Super Sport speed so palm transition in this case was only a matter of time. Therefore remained anything else, except how to establish the Bugatti companies the next own record that they managed to make thanks to a roadster of Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse which became the fastest serial car in the world.
The Volkswagen company which is the Bugatti founder company, has own racing and test route near Ayr Lessin (Ehra-Lessien). Anthony Liu (Anthony Liu), the Chinese racer and the businessman, brought Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse to this route and squeezed out all possible of each of 1183 horsepowers of the engine of this car, having dispersed it to record speed in 431.072 km/h, and the average speed of movement made 408.84 km/h.
For protection of the driver against a wind and noise during movement in the car with opened astride high speed at Vitesse the special spoiler is established. The high-speed chassis, high-speed shock-absorbers, all-wheel drive transmission and carbonaceous body of the car allow to transform the enormous capacity of the 8-liter W16 engine to pure speed.
"It was the fascinating moment" - told to Anthony Liu right after record arrival, - "During training arrivals we managed to exceed a mark of 400 km/h and that fact that I managed to establish a record, forces me to be proud of myself and results of works of specialists of the Bugatti company. The car, even at such improbable speed, remained steady and perfectly obeyed management. And the open top allowed me to take pleasure in a sound of the most powerful motor".
It is necessary to remind that the first Grand Sport Vitesse car was presented on the Geneva motor show last year. Now it, already as the world record-holder, will be presented on the Shanghai motor show where only eight exclusive copies of Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse at the price of 2.61 million dollars will be offered the interested buyers.
