The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is so cool you probably can’t afford it. At a whopping $2.4 million, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport’s price and the fact that it’s the fastest car in the world make it the coolest toy ever. (Edit: As of April 8, 2013, The Veyron no longer claims that distinction. Its Guinness speed record was rescinded because Bugatti had modified the car in order to achieve the 267.8 mark.)
The Super Sport is the logical improvement on what was already a super sexy, super fast car. Tested at a top speed of 267 mph (Bugatti claims a top end of 257), the SS is infinitely cooler
than the original Bugatti Veyron, which was released in 2005 and had a top speed of 253 mph. For maximum chill, the SS takes you from zero to 60 in 2.5 seconds and stops you on a dime at 2.1 seconds. Bugatti made other improvements to the original Veyron by giving the SS the Veyron’s 8.0 litre, 16-cylinder engine, but boosted it with increased turbochargers and intercoolers. They also redesigned the Veyron chassis with stiffer anti-roll and new shocks (based on race car architecture according to Bugatti), giving it lateral acceleration of 1.5 G’s thanks to an intelligent all wheel drive system that works in perfect sync with the specially-clad wheels. A 7-speed dual clutch gearbox runs through its paces at an effortless 150 milliseconds per shift.
The Veyron SS is also wrapped in carbon fiber, which assures maximum torsion and increased passive safety while reducing its already-hefty 4052 lb weight. You would be ultimately cool if you had one of the original five Veyron SS cars in black and orange but if color isn’t your thing, you can now get it in an incredibly sexy clear lacquer over exposed carbon fiber as well as several other color choices.
