If there's anything the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport doesn't need, it's more power, right? After all, it's 1,001 horsepower is sufficient to push the convertible to speeds of 224 miles per hour with the top removed, or an astonishing 252 mph with the polycarbonate hard top firmly affixed above the occupants heads. Fast enough, right?

Wrong. Anyone who's interested in purchasing a Veyron of their very own, be it a convertible or hardtop, will surely want the highest-spec model they can get their hands on, which is why Bugatti invented the Veyron Super Sport.

The Bug SS has had its four turbochargers dialed up to 11 and its output therefore increased to 1,200 horsepower. In the process, Bugatti set a new Guinness World Record as the fastest production car in existence at 267.81 mph.

Problem is, the Super Sport has a specially designed aerodynamics package and cannot simply be converted into a convertible by chopping off its top. That said, a higher-performing droptop is reportedly under consideration. It would have more than a thousand horsepower but less than the 1,200 of the SS.

The Bugatti Veyron Grand Super Sport: for those times when too much is just enough.

      Obviously I cannot afford it (neither can you), but I don't even *want* this car. I've seen several and they just don't push the DESIRE button.

      I nver thought I would say this..especially since I started driving in the power starved late 80's.....but the horsepower/top speed wars among the supercar makers is getting tiresome. Yes, it's fun to watch car show presenters go on and on about how awesome they are, but the fact is that most people in the world will never see one of these things mcuh less be able to own one. Hell, even if you won a powerball lottery you still likely wouldn't be able to get your hands on one of these...or one of the other handful of super exotics.

        What your simple mind cant comprehend is that the car is designed to go that fast. Every component works with each other and is designed to be used everyday as a GT car. Any moron can throw in a 9liter v8 to a chassis and it will be fast and for a lot less. The difference? Its quiet and well mannered on the street. Meets crash testing while being very fast. It does not need drag radials for traction. It will stay cool at idle and doesnt have a turning circle of an 18-wheeler.

          NissanGTR, it's designed to be an everyday driver, that needs $40k worth of tires every 10k miles if you drive VERY easy?

          Did you actually comprehend to what I said and read the article? They cant just cut out the roof and up the boost pressure and call it a day. Many changes must be made. The faster you go, the more it costs. Simple as that.
