By now, you've read all about the new Bugatti Veyron Super Sport and its startling run to 267 mph. No matter how you look at it, that's plenty quick for a production car, complete with a full interior, frosty air conditioning and plenty of other creature comforts. Now word has cropped up on the Top Gear web site that everyone's favorite trio of auto TV personalities may have had something to do with the high-speed dash.
The site doesn't say much other than that we should keep our eyes pinned to "all things Top Gear" over the next few weeks for more information. Considering that Captain Slow slung a Veryon all the way up to 253 mph, it's entirely possible that someone from the cast was either in or around the car during its jaunt to the danger zone at the Ehra-Lessien test facility. While you would have thought we would have heard something if Jezza, the Hamster or Captain Slow were at the tiller of the mad machine, you never know. Stay tuned. Thanks for the tip, Dylan!
