Rumor mill kept churning on ever since we heard of Bugatti Veyron SS model, the most powerful and the fastest car ever built by Bugatti. Earlier, there were assumptions but the whole thing is in the clear light of the day now. Bugatti has unveiled its promised Veyron 16.4 Super Sport with 1,200hp that has set a new land speed record of over 430 km/h.
The car was driven by the Bugatti’s test driver, Pierre Henri Raphanel, while the performance was inspected by German inspection officials (TÜV) and a Guinness Book of Records representative was on hand to witness the new world record. Bugatti Veyron SS reached 428 km/h in the first attempt and 434 km/h in the second. However, the street prowling version of the Super Sport will be electronically controlled to 415 km/h.
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport churns out mammoth 1,200-hp and 1,500 Nm of torque, which is 200 hp and 250 Nm more than its standard version, achieved by using four enlarged turbochargers on the 8.0 liter, 16-cylinder engine along with larger intercoolers.
The vehicle also gets a chassis tuning with a higher main-spring travel, strengthened stabilizers and racing-grade shock absorbers. Apart from this, the latest Bugatti is trimmed 300 kilograms in comparison to standard Veyron. This amazing Buggati will appear for the public view for the time at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California in August.
