Bugatti blew the world away when the first unveiled their Veyron supercar back in 2005. It’s massive engine and four turbochargers ensured its place in the history books as one of the fastest cars ever produced. Immediately, the world caught on to what Bugatti was doing and knew they had to step their game up. Meanwhile, Bugatti was busy perfecting their own hypercar, the Veyron.
After years of refining the Veyron, Bugatti eventually landed upon their roadster version of the car, the Grand Sport Vitesse. This vehicle uses the same W16 engine and seven-speed dual-clutch DSG transmission as the others, but it comes in a topless version. That means in this hypercar you could hit the record-setting 254.04 mph top speed in a roadster. That’s just unheard of, although the record was set by racing driver Anthony Liu at VW’s proving grounds in Ehra-Lessien, so there was plenty of skill and road to go around (and tires).
Now, Mecum is auctioning off number 74 out of 150 Grand Sport Vitesse’s created at their upcoming Monterey 2018 auction. It comes finished in a silver finish with rich taupe leather upholstery. There’s also the Vitesse-exclusive stitching pattern in the cabin that was inspired by the Veyron’s “ascending speed curve.” For wheels, there are 20-inch chrome alloy wheels that are shod with Michelin Pilot Sport tires. For mileage, this Vitesse has only traveled 1,526 miles. Are you going to be the next person to clock some miles on this hypercar’s odometer? Head to Mecum’s Monterey event on Saturday, August 25th and find out!
