Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport reviewed by EVO's Chris Harris – Click above to watch video after the jump

We know what resident lucky bastard Autoblog contributor Rex Roy thinks about the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. Now we get another perspective on the hypercar courtesy of EVO magazine's Chris Harris. His thoughts? Occasionally frustrating, yet worth every penny. Harris laments that he gets an amazing sensation of speed yet he has to be off the gas almost as quickly as he gets on it. The 267-mph Veyron Super Sport just moves too quickly for everyday situations.

Since it is Chris Harris behind the wheel, we're treated to a nice patch-laying takeoff before he launches into a discussion of the car. The clip, which you can find after the jump, also treats us to a little over a minute of no talking... just footage of the car. Wonderful.

      sure the car is intimidating but it is fugly as a toad
      i wish i could hear that engine with my own ears one day :)

      Bottle-green VANS T-shirt, jeans and brown loafers to drive a $2+ million Bugatti?! Where's the sense of occasion? You need to be wearing Armani, Prada or something out of Saville Row, to at least look halfway up to par in that, mate. Then again, this unit's combination of bright orange and black is just hideous. Like a massive exotic Bug. Wait...it is!

      Amazing technological achievement, but it leaves me cold. And yes, it'll blow your mind when you put the foot down, but public roads are not meant for anything this fast. Like MR harris finds out, it's frustrating. I'd much rather pay for a ride on a Mig-25 Foxbat with one of those crazy Russian jet-fighter pilots at the helm. You don't run out of room, don't have to slow down, and when that crazy bast**d hits the afterburners you'll know what real power means. That, my dear petrolheads, will be the ride of your life! (yours for roughly 20 grand)

      that was surprisingly boring to watch

      I am always happy to take the time to watch a video of a kick ass can like the Veyron SS. I look forward to the day when you can some how experience the car while watching the video.

      i agree with harris there: `I`d like a bit more of that, i`d like a bit more of that...`

      or in another words: cannot get enough!

        Metcalfe summed up the speed it generates perfectly: If you only have one trick, it's a hell of a trick to have...
      • 4 Years Ago
      What the hell happened at 3:59? Was he so busy talking about the car that he forgot to turn the wheel? My beater of a honda civic wouldn't have lost traction in that corner.
        • 4 Years Ago
        That wasn't a loss of traction, that was him turning in and allowing the tail to rotate a bit: You can't do that in your civic.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I didn't see any tail rotation. It looked like he was reacting to the other vehicle.

        I can get the tail to rotate on my civic with a bit of help from the e-brake :-)

      Qoute of the year:" 5 seconds (of throttle) makes you one of the fastest moving objects in the continent you are in." Fabulous.

      I like how Mr. Metcalfe talks to Harris as if they're having a casual chat over a cup of tea, and not while riding in a 1200 HP supercar.

      I guess owning a Zonda can do that to one.

      Gotta love EVO.

      I maybe one of the few who says this but, it's hard to get excited about cars you will never see, drive or even step foot inside.
        • 4 Years Ago
        The boy and I were late to a Cars & Coffee and spotted a Veyron leaving. Caught it on a cell phone cam in traffic at a light. We've never been late to another... but it never came back.

        About like bird watching but way more exciting.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I agree. They're like actresses and super-models. Nice to look at, maybe get a poster of one or something. But the only thing I can get excited about is the Prelude who sits next to me in my chemistry class.
        • 4 Years Ago
        You need to move then. There are 3 in the Phoenix area. And 2 actually get driven. Whenever I see one I am shocked at how dang quiet they are. Even this Super Sport was quiet in the video.
        • 4 Years Ago
        There was a Veyron and the 57C Atlantic this past Art Center Car Classic, sitting next to each other. I also tailed a blue and white Veyron for about 3 miles in San Diego on the 5 North a year ago.

      want
      • 4 Years Ago
      Harris has to drive it and see if it will break 250mph-in handling mode, the only one that matters, unless he wants to see if it will hit 220mph with the airbrake engaged.

        • 4 Years Ago
        It wont, it's electronically limited to like 235 in handling mode.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Too much downforce?
        Seem like a downer, because the regular Veyron can go 235.
        So the reason you'd pickup an Veyron SS is for the improved mileage.
