Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse Gris Rafale at the Sao Paulo Auto Show

Bugatti has presented the 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse at the Sao Paulo Motor Show for the very first time following the success of the Veyron 16.4 Super Sport. The Bugatti 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse boasts of a superior 7.9 liter W16 engine which is capable of producing 1200 PS and 1500 Nm of torque. This kind of power enables the car to reach 0-100 km/h within a span of 2.6 seconds. The car has a top speed of 410 km/h and like the Veyron’s, is one of the fastest production cars built. This maximum speed has been evaluated on closed test strips but in general the speed limit is limited electronically to 375 km/h.

The engine is coupled to a seven speed dual clutch gear box which provides superior handling and stability. The chassis of this car has undergone tuning to make it sturdier and acclimatized to body roll and pitching when at high speeds. ESP provides a dynamic performance while the brake cooling system enables one to enjoy a stable and high performance drive.

The body has been made from carbon fiber and aero dynamically designed to provide superior handling and reduce drag. Scoops and strategically placed vents help to prevent pitching and rolling while a new roof spoiler will allow one to race the car comfortably at 200 km/h. Décor in the interior of this vehicle has been carried out using carbon fiber aluminum and magnesium. Superbly crafted these interior accents provide a much enhanced look to the Bugatti 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse.
