As the land speed record holder made its North American debut at this year's edition Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, Bugatti has released a new set of images with the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.

These images show a blue carbon fiber version of the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport which looks a bit more conservative than the black and orange scheme seen on it initially, and as you probably know by now this new model is capable of producing 1200 HP and 1500 Nm of torque, figures that are enough to takes its driver at speeds of 431 Km/h.

Accelerating from 0 to 100 Km/h in the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport takes a blistering 2.5 seconds, or 7.3 seconds from 0 to 200 Km/h and 15 seconds from 0 to 300 Km/h.

Besides the larger air intakes at the front the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport has received a series of redesigned components at the rear end, which are both meant to improve aerodynamics and distinguish it from the previous version.

The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport price starts at 1,434,000 Euros.

Bugatti press release :

On the 3rd of July, the new Veyron 16.4 Super Sport achieved a new landspeed world record with 431, 072 km/h (268 mph) on Volkswagen Group’s proving ground at Ehra-Lessien, close to the Wolfsburg headquarters. Bugatti presents this new car for the first time to the public at the three events The Quail, Monterey Historic Races at Laguna Seca, and on the

Concept Lawn of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. On Saturday, Bugatti’s Pilote Officiel will drive in the world record car as a pace car for the historic Bugatti Rally at Laguna Seca.

The climax of the Veyron series: the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport

In the past, had a model been especially popular or highly successful in races, Ettore Bugatti’s customers often pushed the master to tease out a few more horsepower for their future car. Bugatti
Automobiles S.A.S. was in a similar situation when their existing customers asked the company, not
only to design their “next model” optically different but also to create a sportier version with a more
extreme driving experience. The result is an extremely powerful car with 1,200-hp (882 kW) and a
maximum torque of 1,500 Newton meters, offering experienced drivers a whole new dimension of
excitement. Top speed is limited to 415 km/h, to protect the tyres, but the specifications of the
Super Sport will be identical to the world record car. The first five Super Sports to come off the
production line will constitute a special series, with the same configuration as the land speed record
car.

The Super Sport is a result of the continuous development of the classic 1,001-hp Bugatti Veyron
16.4, launched in 2005. This model offers a stunning set of specifications, such as the twin clutch
gearbox with seven speeds, the precise driving performance and excellent stability when braking and
accelerating.

Constant development over the past 10 years has lead to advances, which have enabled the engineers
at Bugatti S.A.S. to develop the Veyron to reach new dimensions. Every modification is designed to
produce greater performance and a more agile ride. Larger turbochargers and bigger intercoolers
have been used to increase the power of the eight litre, 16-cylinder engine. The chassis has been
extensively tweaked to remain safe, in order to cope with the additional power and increased speed.
Revisions include a slightly raised main-spring travel, stronger stabilisers, and new shock absorbers
with a complex architecture similar to which used in racing. This gives the car a more precise control
of the wheels and the car as a whole. With lateral acceleration results of up to 1.4 g and improved
interaction between the tyres and the intelligent all-wheel drive system, the Super Sport offers
perfect handling and even more powerful acceleration.

The body has been fine-tuned to improve aerodynamic efficiency and maintain perfect balance in
every situation, while the new fibre structure of the all-carbon monocoque ensures maximum
torsion rigidity and passive safety – at a reduced weight. The skin is made entirely of carbon-fibre
composites, and the new Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport is available in full body clear-lacquered
exposed carbon on request.

Dynamic exterior

Every detail of this car, and not just its use of advanced motorsport technology, stems back to the
pioneering spirit of company founder Ettore Bugatti. This brilliant designer came from a family of
artists, and his philosophy was always to combine mechanical perfection and exterior beauty. This
ethos remains alive and well at the company today, where every modification to the Bugatti Veyron
16.4 Super Sport serves to coax greater performance from the car.

The Super Sport’s flat, elongated silhouette distinguishes itself from the standard car. Rather than
scoops above the engine, the 16-cylinder engine is now fed air from two NACA ducts integrated
into the roof. The front air intakes have been expanded and reshaped, with the lower one extending
elegantly around the sides to the wheel arch. The revised rear end looks sportier due to the double
diffuser and a centrally arranged exhaust system.

Bugatti has a tradition of making super sport versions of successful models, usually with racing
chassis and supercharged engines. These cars were considered as true racing machines for diehard
Bugatti devotees. The most successful versions was the type 55 and type 57S; with around forty of
each built.

Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. has now sold 260 Veyrons and 35 Grand Sports, of which 249 Veyrons
and 22 Grand Sports had been delivered. The Super Sport will begin production this autumn at
Molsheim along with the Veyron and the Grand Sport. The first five cars – known as the World
Record Edition – are in a special black exposed carbon and orange finish, and have already been sold.
