The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport is the latest and lightest iteration of the French automakers line of ultra-premium, high-performance supercars, but it’s not just a svelte skeleton. She walks it like she talks it, this one. Last week it set the new land speed record for a production car at a face skin-stretchingly fast 268 mph.
What’s so different about this Bugatti as compared to its older sisters? For starters, it’s got a completely switched out body and frame made entirely of carbon fiber which shaved 110 pounds off of the total weight of the vehicle. They also made slight aerodynamic changes to the body style allowing it to cut through the air up to the above, shocking top speed.
It’s 16-cylinder engine can rip out 1,200 hp with 1,106 pound-feet of torque, and this powertrain is mated to the carbon frame and stiffer suspension than previous models which allows this sexy beast to generate upwards of 1.4 lateral Gs. The interior is austere, yet stylish, but all of this is going to cost you. The Veyron 16.4 costs $2,000,000.
