Testing the top speed of a super car is a distant dream for most owners. All supercars boast of a top speed over and above permitted limits thus leaving owners a dissatisfied lot. But here is one owner who got somewhat near to testing the top speed of his Bugatti.

However, it was the American owner of a Bugatti Veyron SS Pur Sang, an edition of the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport that was able to accomplish this dream of taking his super car to the limit. We are not taking about putting it to the test across the Ehra-Lessien high-speed track in Germany or the high speed track in Nardò, Italy but on a public road in Idaho.

YouTube user The Stradman was on location to catch the car in action as it sped at a top speed of 246.6 mph sounding more like a fighter jet than a road legal car.

Bugatti Veyron SS Pur Sang was launched on 11th September 2007 at the Frankfort Motor Show. Pur Sang means Pure Blood and more aptly translated as Thoroughbred. Limited in number to just five cars, the cars are the epitome of class and comfort and are seen with high gloss bronze road wheels with diamond cut finish and carbon fiber body.
