Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse Sets Topless World Record

Look, we’re a realistic group of individuals here at Mass Appeal. Not a single one of us is owning a Veyron anytime soon. And it’s probably safe to say that few of y’all – unless maybe you got them pre-pre-natal Kimmy K. curves – have even ridden in one. But just for kicks, let’s talk operating INXS and take a peek at how the other side lives.


Spoiler alert: the fast life is fast. Just shy of the Shanghai Motor Show, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse (get it right!) set the world speed record for an open-top production sports car; clocking in at a hairline-pushing 254.04 mph. If that sounds like mere bacon bits to you, you’re either delusional or the biggest hater since The Mad Rapper.


Perhaps as a subtle taunt to the envious, the Vitesse’s driver – Chinese entrepreneur and race driver Anthony Liu – made it sound that while the car may be 100% pure unobtanium to us, the theoretical act of driving in one at 200+ mph might not be. “In our training sessions we exceeded 400 km/h but the fact that I could surpass this unbelievable speed once again and even higher has made me very proud,” stated Liu. “The car is even at such high speeds incredibly comfortable and stable. With an open top, you can really experience the sound of the engine and yet even at higher speeds I did not get compromised by the wind at all.”


Good stuff to hear, right? Hey you never know – the day you wake up in a new Bugatti could be in your near future, so it can’t hurt to be prepared with the knowledge of what’s possible. After all, I’ll probably never dunk from the foul-line but just in case the unthinkable happens, I have the proper shoes. And so should you.
