Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport Takes Speed Record

Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport

Blowing by the previous land speed record, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport clocked a ridiculous 267.81 MPH for a new world record. Unlike the more pedestrian regular Veyron, which manages a measly 1001 HP, the Veyron Super Sport puts out a stunning 1,200 HP. It also makes an earth-shaking 1,106 lb-ft of torque, if you’re in to that sort of thing.

Buyers looking to match the speed record will be sorely disappointed – Bugatti is electronically limiting production units to “just” 257.9 MPH, supposedly to keep the tires lasting beyond a single speed run.
