The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport features a powertrain capable of 1,200-hp (882 kW) and a maximum torque of 1,500 Newton metres with a limited top speed of 415 km/h (to protect the tires).
The first five Super Sports to come off the production line will constitute a special series, with the same configuration as the landspeed record car.
The Super Sport is a development of the classic exclusive 1,001-hp Bugatti Veyron 16.4, launched in 2005. Among the specifications is the twin clutch gearbox with seven speeds.
In the lastest version, four enlarged turbochargers and bigger intercoolers have been used to boost the power of the 16-cylinder engine, and the chassis has been extensively redesigned to maintain safety at extreme speed - thanks to slightly raised main-spring travel, stronger stabilisers, and new shock absorbers with a complex architecture originally developed for racing cars.
This gives noticeably more precise control of the wheels and the car as a whole. With lateral acceleration of up to 1.4 G and improved interaction between the tyres and the intelligent all-wheel drive system, the Super Sport offers perfect handling and even more powerful acceleration of 1,500 Newton metres on corner exits.
The body has been fine-tuned to improve aerodynamic efficiency and maintain balance in every situation, while the new fibre structure of the all-carbon monocoque ensures maximum torsion rigidity and passive safety – at reduced weight.
The skin is made entirely of carbon-fibre composites, and the new Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport is available in 100 per-cent clear-lacquered exposed carbon on request.
