It is not only no longer a world record car, it is ugly as sin too. Sorry, someone had to say it.
I whole-heartedly disagree!!! I have always found the Bugatti design to be far more attractive than other super cars. Back in 1994-95 they held the record for fastest production car as well and that was a very attractive car, the Veyron is a beautiful evolution of it. Nice round smooth sloping angles instead of the jagged sharp stealth jet looking angles of other supercars which got old in the 70's.
What car now holds the record at over 258mph? Does another production car come at over 258mph but below 267.8mph?
Even without holding the record this is one ridiculously fast and sexy car and far more impressive to see driving down the road than any other car except for the Maybach Exelero.
That is a picture of the "regular" Veyron, not the Super Sport (which is black with orange accents).
Love love love love this car.
Sorry everyone has their own opinion if the car is ugly or not :) But I find this car sexy as hell!!!!
It doesn't officially hold the title yet, but:"...taking the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport’s place as the "fastest production car" will most likely be the Hennessey Venom GT, which recently hit 265.7 mph in a non-Guinness-record attempt ."
It's just a matter of time until the Hennessey team organizes an official Guinness record attempt. From what I understand it was Hennessey that originally called out Bugatti on the deactivation of the restrictor in the first place.
This is the one I can't wait for:
I am undecided in how it looks. Ive seen certain pictures that make it look amazing and some where it just looks like crap and others where its meh. As far as the record goes that sucks they lost it but considering all the publicity it has gotten I doubt they even care at this point except maybe alittle pride in what they thought the Guinness World Records knew.
Now if someone showed up tomorrow and asked me to take his Bugatti off his hands even it was the color of a turd and the speed limiter activated I would not think twice about destroying the tires in minutes.
I don't think this car is beautiful but I don't think its ugly either. On just looks I think its way behind the Ferrari Italia or the Pagani Huayra (the interior of the Huayra is AMAZING!!).
Per Guinness, since the super sport has lost their title then the SSC Ultimate Aero TT (which took it from the original Veyron) would officially have held it since 2007.
I don't care how this car looks, I'd still love to drive it for a day or two. (Yes, Gas-Gas!!)
If they want the title of the world's fastest car again, I 'm sure that they'll go and get it.
Well im sure they will either find some loophole or they will just "change" something on the next year model or whatever if they even care to get the title back. Its not like the whole world doesnt know what a Bugatti Veyron is since they "held" the title for the past few years.
What is truly amazing is that the Venom GT got to top speed in 2 miles whereas the Bugatti required 4 miles to reach top speed. Give the Venom GT more room to run and it will completely spank the Bugatti all day long...along with everyone else.
