Car Pron: Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

When you hear the word Bugatti today, it's much like hearing the word Deusenburg for baby boomers and the generation before; world famous build quality, technological innovation, performance and craftsmanship. While both of these pillars of automobile luxury and quality began manufacturing cars early in the 20th century, however, only the Bugatti brand still actively produces cars. From a rich pre-war racing history, to being resurrected in 1987 by  Romano Artioli (responsible for the exquisite EB110), Volkswagen AG (VAG) acquired the Bugatti brand in 1998. Under the VAG umbrella, what we all know as the Bugatti EB 16.4 Veyron was produced in 2005.

The Bugatti Veyron broke many records held prior to it's release, one of which was the worlds fastest car title (raising the bar to 253.81mph) previously held by the McLaren F1 then Koenigsegg CCR, respectively. The SSC Ultimate Aero TT edged the Veyron out by a couple mph two years later, but in predictable fashion, with the Veyron getting close to the end of it's production cycle, an even more exclusive version has been released this year (2010) called the Veyron Super Sport. Enjoy.
