All of us belonging to the car lovers’ fraternity aren’t just interested in cars but we keep the same level of interests in the fact that how fast a car can go? The adrenaline rushing through our body is the most divine feeling a car lover wishes to experience and we always hope to get a better ride in order to fulfill our wish.
Indian roads are not meant for super speed cars and will never be atleast for some years but its not the Indian manufacturers who are focusing on high speed machines but as always the manufacturers located on the other side of the planet.
Ford, Nissan, Honda, Chevrolet and a bunch of others are always busy with their R&D programs running in order to bring out innovations which could deliver better speeds without incurring much investment. Out of all these one brand is the most popular for its amazingly high speed and high price cars and is known as Bugatti.
This French brand was found by Ettore Bugatti,an Italian immigrant described as an eccentric genius for building high performance automobiles and the brand still carries his legacy with cars like the Bugatti Veyron. This car previously held the record for the fastest landspeed of production cars and now the latest addition to its titles is another landspeed record created by Buatti Veyron Super Sport.
This car broke the previous world record with an average top speed of 431km/hr on the proving grounds of the Volkswagen Group at Ehra-Lessien (nearby its headquarters at Wolfsburg) under the sharp observation of a representative of Guinness Book of Records and officials from German Technical Inspection Agency (TÜV).
Bugatti’s Pilote Officiel Pierre Henri Raphanel drove the car from north to south with a speed of 427, 933 km/h and then back with a speed of 431,211 km/h which led the jury calculate an record breaking average top speed of 431,072 km/h. Bugatti’s chief engineer Dr. Wolfgang Schreiber said,”We took it that we would reach an average value of 425 km/h, but the conditions today were perfect and allowed even more.”
The car was built after the brand’s customers insisted them to design a model which is optically different along with another one with a sportier identity giving better driving experience.
General Specifications Of Bugatti Veyron Super Sport
The car sports a uniquely designed engine developing a maximum power of 1,200-hp (882 kW) along with an astonishing maximum torque of 1,500 Newton metres.For the customers’ safety and to protect the tyres the speed of the car has been restricted to a maximum 415 km/h.
Price Of Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

The first five buyers of Veyron Super Sport will get the machine with the same configuration as of the actual car which broke the record and the car will appear for the first time in public in California at the Pebble Beach Concours weekend in mid-August and will be featured at The Quail, Monterey Historic Races at Laguna Seca and on the concept lawn of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
