Bugatti brings Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse World Record Car Edition to Auto Shanghai

If you were wondering which is the fastest convertible in the world, the answer would have to be the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse World Record Car Edition. The supercar has made its public debut last weekend during the 2013 Auto Shanghai before going on sale for an extremely steep price tag of 1.99 million euros (1.69 million pounds or 2.60 million dollars), not taking into account any applicable taxes.

Bugatti has previously announced that they plan on making only eight units of the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse WRC.

The heart and soul of the special model is the same quad-turbo, W16 7.9-liter engine which is capable of outputting no less than 1,200 HP (882 kW) and a maximum torque of 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft). The entire horsepower is sent to all four wheels through a 7-speed, dual-clutch transmission. Thanks to this setup, the vehicle needs only 2.6 seconds from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) and it can hit an impressive top speed of 254.04 mph (408.84 km/h).
