2015 BUGATTI VEYRON 16.4 GRAND SPORT VITESSE: A rare sighting of the exotic Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse is captivating crowds at McCormick Place, during the Chicago Auto Show, Feb. 14-22, 2015. Bugatti touts the Vitesse as the best of two worlds by providing the elegance of the Grand Sport and the performance of the Super Sport. The acceleration rate and the eight-litre displacement of the W16 engine, provides a maximum output of 1,200-horsepower and an outright sprint from 0-to-62 mph in just 2.6 seconds. With an increase of 199 hp over the Grand Sport and a top speed 255-mph, the four-wheel drive Grand Sport Vitesse is the fastest production roadster ever built. While the maximum speed is taken advantage of exclusively on closed tracks, the Grand Sport Vitesse has a special safeguard in “normal” handling mode, which electronically limits it to 233 mph. At the front end is characterized by larger air intakes; the two central air intakes to the left and right of the radiator grille are horizontally divided by a bar. The bottom air vent stretches sideways into the wheel housing and lends this exceptional sports car an extremely high-performance appearance. The rear end, like on the Super Sport, is characterized by a double diffuser and a centrally positioned twin tailpipe. The Grand Sport Vitesse makes use of a full carbon fiber monocoque, the outer skin is also completely made of carbon fiber; and optionally, the new Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse is also available in clear-coated visible carbon. A new roof spoiler significantly reduces wind noise and turbulence inside the car. Also in the interior, in addition to high-grade metals such as aluminum and magnesium, carbon fiber is the dominant material of the numerous interior components.
