Bugatti Veyron Super Sport video part 1

Part 1 of evo's video review of the world's fastest supercar, the 268mph Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

Last month, evo Contributing Editor Chris Harris and Harry Metcalfe (Editorial Director), hit the jackpot by spending a whole day driving the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport on the fabulous driving roads of Southern Spain.
Chris Harris and Harry Metcalfe managed to get the keys to one of only five ‘World Record Edition’ versions built by Bugatti. These ultimate Veyrons are easy to spot as they will all be finished in bare carbon bodywork, finished off with florid orange highlights (including the wheels) to differentiate them from the standard Veyron Super Sport.
The World Record Edition Veyron comes supplied with a spare set of tyres and wheels to ensure owners always have a replacement set of new tyres ready to fit should they want to push the car to the limit on a track.
Also, the World Record Edition Veyron reaches a slightly higher top speed (260mph versus 254mph). Incredibly, even this speed is limited. During its world record setting run the World Record Edition Veyron reached a two-way average of 268mph and peaked at an incredible 271mph….
There’s a price to pay for all this extra speed, though, as these WRE Veyrons cost 1.95million euros (plus taxes) each, compared to £1.65million (plus taxes) for a standard Super Sports Veyron. Delivery starts in early 2011. Hardly a bargain, but all five WRE Veyrons were sold as soon as the car was announced.
Here’s the first of two videos evo filmed on the day of the drive. In Part 1 Chris Harris and Harry Metcalfe discuss what makes this version of the Bugatti Veyron so very special. You can read the full story in this month’s evo magazine, Issue 151, on sale now. Download your online e-mag here.
