    In Summer 2008, as a response to customer request, Bugatti is introducing a new model – the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport, a roadster with a unique, removable roof.

    The world’s most exclusive car combines the ultimate in performance with the pleasure of open-top driving. The sophisticated design of its bodywork and aerodynamic components directs the airflow over the heads of driver and passenger so they feel no draught.

    As well as a large number of new equipment features, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport also incorporates innovative structural solutions designed to ensure that the roadster offers the same extremely high levels of passive safety as the coupe.

    In keeping with Ettore Bugatti’s exclusive product philosophy, many design features that make this possible are unique in contemporary automotive engineering.

    The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport is the world’s fastest and most exciting roadster, and will be displayed to the public for the first time on the afternoon of August 16, 2008, outside The Lodge at Pebble Beach.

    The highest bidder will have the opportunity to specify their new car at the factory in Molsheim/Alsace by bidding on the first car at Gooding & Company's Pebble Beach Auction.

  2. Poor colours to show off the debut model.
  3. not complaining, looks ok.
  4. wow does it ever look good. But I wonder how many more Veyrons Bugatti is planning to make?

    I say they should hire fashion designers to make their own special editions, just like the Hermes version
  5. who is the girl, please post avatar
  6. Victoria Becham, d00d.
  7. Vlad is FAST RACE
  8. the question were all wondering of course...
    Does the roof fly off at 252 mph?
  9. Will the roof be a pain to fix like the Murcielago LP640 Roadster?
  10. this is very dangerous
  12. i severely disagree
  13. never knew VW would rip off a Chevy corvette name from the past.
  14. does the roof automatically come off at high speed like the one of the Corvette? <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A><A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
  15. Can it reach top speed with the top down?
  16. never!
  17. It doesn't look bad, but they could have spent more than 3 minutes thinking of a name. I'd be very suprised if GM didn't own the name "Grand Sport".
  18. GranSport but not Grand Sport
  19. No. One or 2 aerodynamic issue with taking the roof off!!
  20. wait, "sport"? HA! yeah sure
  21. im pretty sure there will be a limiter. otherwise it would probably lose control at about 230mph, if it could even get that high.

    its ok though, the veyron is badass for way more reasons than its top speed
  23. Right... You wish you were a Veyron girl!
  24. Im not so sure about the LED front lights so far thats the only part im in doubt about. Awesome color this pearl white, overall win.
  25. how many so far ?

    Pur Sang
    Sang Noir
    Grand Sport

    What else ?
