Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport – Click above for high-res image gallery

Bugatti made big news last month when it unveiled the Veyron 16.4 Super Sport. The 1200-horsepower supercar smashed the production car speed record by reaching nearly 268 mph at the Volkswagen proving grounds, and it even made the fastest ever lap around the Top Gear test track in the hands of the Stig.

We've previously only seen pictures of just one Super Sport model – the record-setting car with the polarizing orange and black paint scheme – but now we know that the Bugatti factory has spewed out at least two examples. The Super Sport made its North American debut at the Quail Motorsports Gathering earlier today with gorgeous blue carbon fiber paint. We have to say we much prefer it over its counterpart.

We've heard the record-setting Super Sport is also in town and will be at Laguna Seca, so we'll hopefully be able to bring you more photos of that car, and expect plenty more coverage from the Quail Motorsports Gathering throughout this weekend.

      That's a really nice paint job!

      I hope Koenigsegg makes something to challenge that record!

        SSC is already working on it. They basically said "great job on taking our crown, keep it warm for when we take it back in a year with an awesome looking super fast car"

        ....or SSC (again), or even the hyper-Ferrari/Lambo.

      WOW I really like the subtle cosmetic changes they gave to the super sport, makes it look amazing!!

      this is a bit redundant but that painted carbon fiber is gorgeous. it and the diamond weaver painted carbon fiber on the koenigsegg CCXR are my two favorite paint jobs ever

      Top Gear's feature with the SS was fantastic. The photography really pointed out how beautiful the raw carbon looked and the differences in the 'base' model vs the SS.

      This may be the ultimate automobile of all time.

      That is just awesome, is it wider than the standard Veyron?

      Does anybody have video of the sign crashing down on the Delahaye when it won Best in Show?

      I don't like the new rear end roofline and engine cover, i actually think a normal Veyron is more attractive, i wasn't aware of this until these pictures.

      As for the winning top gear lap, while im sure the new tires and power make it possible that it may indeed have gone faster, Top Gear is so full of sensationalism these days they very well could have just made up that lap time for it to make good television.

      looks awesome! i hope Bugatti builds more cars and goes after more than just top speed. I'm sure they'll do well!
        • 4 Years Ago
        This car is more than just top speed. Its the fastest car to go around the Top Gear track.

      This car is so badass. The way the weaves meet in the middle, wow...absolutely worth the money when considering the attention to details here...beauty.
