Bugatti now owns the fastest roadster in the world thanks to their new Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse ($2,600,000). Introduced last spring as the record holder for the fastest open-top production sports car ever manufactured, the Grand Sport Vitesse set their sights on an even faster speed this year, achieving 408.84 km/hr, or roughly 254 MPH.
The incredible speed and performance of the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse can be attributed to its massive 8-liter W16 engine, advanced racing chassis, fast-acting shock absorbers, and 100% carbon fiber shell. This world record car edition is limited to only 8 vehicles worldwide, at a cool 2.6 million dollars. A small price to pay to own both the road and the track.
