Max. torque of 1.500 Newton meters
4 enlarged turbochargers
16 cylinder engine
Lateral acceleration of up to 1.4 G
Limited speed of 415 km/h or 258 mph (miles/h) (to protect the tires they say?)
And the price? Unknown for this moment.
So better tires could get the machine even a bit faster. Maybe a thing to work on for the next model, better tires and who knows another speed record for Bugatti?
Well it did. They just let the beast drive to its top speed with a less security for the tires. A new record was born.
The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport World Record Edition achieved a new land speed world record on the test track of the Volkswagen Group at Ehra-Lessien. It achieved an average TOP SPEED of 431 km/h. Good for a new place in the Guinness Book of Records!!
