Bugatti Veyron 16.4
All models of the Bugatti Veyron since the first model of EB 16.4 was released for commercial sale have been touted as veritable engineering marvels. It was unmistakably a French brand and still retains its French pedigree. It became available for the first time in 2005. From 2005 to 2011, the versions sold were EB 16.4.
The Grand Sport version started becoming available from 2009 and the Super Sport was released for the first time in 2010. Production for both the Grand Sport and Super Sport lines are on. The cars have been named after Pierre Veyron, the legendary racing driver from France who was declared the winner in the Le Mans racing competition in 1939.He was the face of Bugatti in the competition. In this blog, we will concentrate on the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse.
The Bugatti Veyron versions right from the first one, have all been standalone versions and were the most expensive cars in their genre. The BBC television documentary, Top Gear named the Bugatti Veyron the car of the decade for the period 2000-2009. In the very year, the first model was launched it won Top Gear’s best car driven all year felicitation. The state-of-the-art all-wheel drive system and the immaculate aerodynamic design have contributed enormously to its being a phenomenal high speed sports car without any rivals.
Like every other product or every other make or brand of automobile needs to perpetually update itself, the Bugatti Veyron too has been through the usual evolutionary process. The EB 16.4 Standard Version has been discontinued.
The Grand Sport Vitesse truly mirrors the evolutionary change that the Bugatti Veyron has been through. This particular version is a living testimony of the fact that Bugatti is obsessed with innovation.
One of the representatives from the EVO magazine very recently got behind the wheels of the Grand Sport Vitesse to take it for a test drive. The test drive was undertaken to see whether it lived up to its expectations of being the fastest sports car. Just watch the video and you will be swept off your feet. The Grand Sport Vitesse is equipped with the same standard features as in the coupe version and its engine breathes 1200HP and has a torque of 1106lb-ft.
