According to InsideLine, Bugatti plans to unveil its Targa variant of the Veyron next month at the 2008 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in Monterey, California. The open-air hyper-car will use a removable hardtop, while a fabric cover can be used in its place if the heavens decide to open up mid-jaunt. IL is reporting that the chassis will be heavily reinforced to cope with the loss of the crucial structural component. Production will begin next year along side the Targa's fixed-roof predecessor, and with the current Veyron going for around $2 million, don't expect to get your 217-mph (limited) top speed kicks without paying another $250,000 on top of the Veyron's base-price.

      This car is still in demand? Do that many people really have 1.25 million burning a hole in their pockets?

      Interesting. But how could we go with 200-300 km/h, without the ceiling? Ooooh what a feeling, when we dancing on a ceiling (Lionel Richie)... Sorry it doesn’t fit here. Do we have in price life insurance, helmets, ……everything?

      Has anyone ran the ring in one of these things?

        I was curious about that too. You don't really see this car on the track too often, just 0-253-0 stuff. I wonder if its hefty weight hinders its performance in the twisties.

        Also I wonder if this targa model has the same top speed as the original Veyron. I can't imagine doing 200+ with the top down.

        Salt Flats roadster guys do it all the time.

        A Veyron's tire replacement costs $22,000.

        Anyways... Nope! People tend to not take these around the racetrack! lol

      The car comes with a hardtop, which cannot be stored in the car. Therefore, they have designed a soft top, which can be tucked away somewhere in the car (glove compartment maybe?). However, while using this soft top, the top speed is limited to 120 km/h. Yes, you read it correctly, 120 km/h! You'll have Segways flying past you!
      The boys at Koenigsegg have these guys by the balls.. their roof can be stored under the front hood, no probs!!

      The US alone has more than a million millionaires.

        I read recently on Forbes or something that there were now 10 million millionaires in the world. So to answer another poster's question: Yes, there are still plenty of people who can afford a Veyron of their very own.

      I'm glad I waited. Having one of these will allow my adoring publice to toss flowers and rose petals into the car as I cruise down the many streets of my 57 state kingdom. It may not be environmentally friendly,but it does have enough power to overcome being up-armored.
