The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse, also known as the Bugatti Veyron Vitesse, is an upgraded version of the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport with the Super Sport's engine. It is currently the fastest roadster in the world, with a top speed record of 254.04 mph (408.84 km/h), achieved in 2013.
Unveiled at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse is a version of the Grand Sport with a Super Sport engine. The engine, an 8.0L quad-turbocharged W16, produces 1184 hp (883 kW) at 6,400 rpm and 1106 ft·lb (1500 N·m) at 3,000-5,000 rpm. Pricing starts at US$1.9 million (without tax and transportation).
The Vitesse can do 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 254.04 mph (408.84 km/h), verified by Chinese racing driver Anthony Liu at Volkswagen Group's proving grounds in Ehra-Lessien, Germany. On normal roads, the car is electronically limited to 233 mph (375 km/h).
Weighing at most 4387 lb (1990 kg), the Veyron Vitesse has a power-to-weight ratio of 595 hp per tonne or 3.71 lb/1.68 kg per tonne.
A number of special editions of the Vitesse were made. The Vitesse SE, inspired by Bugatti Type 37A, was unveiled in 2012 and sold for €1.74 million (US$2.2 million). The World Record Car (WRC) Edition was limited to 8 units, debuted in 2013, and went on sale for €1.99 million.
In 2013, Bugatti produced a series of Vitesses dedicated to racing legends, including Jean-Pierre Wimille, Jean Bugatti, Meo Costantini, and Ettore Bugatti.
The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse, named as Bugatti 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse, appears as the third highest-ranked original car in Class S. It has a starting rank of 1521, a MAX rank of 1633, and a MAX+PRO rank of 1707. It receives +26 from Tuning Kits.
The Bugatti 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse has a Speed Modification of 91.46%. This is the most common Speed Modification in the game, shared by six other vehicles.
While the Bugatti 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse has a higher base Top Speed versus lower-ranked Class S vehicles, it is greatly hampered by its poor acceleration, similar to the Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS. Another disadvantage is its low nitro boost, coupled with a horrendous 9/14/19 efficiency rating. However, the Bugatti handles and drifts really well, a trait shared by the seven original Class S cars.
The Bugatti 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse is considered one of the worst cars in the game due to its disappointing performance, as well as the high rarity of W16 Engine cards, of which it requires 36 for its Pro Kits. The Veyron is also lacking in terms of Car Mastery rewards. Due to the availability of better vehicles like the Koenigsegg One:1 and Holden Coupe 60, the Bugatti sees little use in events and Multiplayer.
The Ferrari FXX Evoluzione, which costs 35,000 less, is often considered a better alternative to the Bugatti, and the TVR Sagaris, with upgrades, is able to match the Bugatti in terms of Top Speed, while having better a better nitro efficiency rating, although it handles worse.
The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse is featured in Asphalt Nitro as a Class S car. This time, though, while relatively unchanged from its Asphalt 8: Airborne rendition (aside from the color choices), its name is now correctly displayed as Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse.
The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse was the cover car of Asphalt Nitro during its beta version.
