The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, which was unceremoniously stripped of its record for being the world's fastest production car, has had its honour restored.

The £2.1 million car originally made it into the record books when Bugatti test driver Piere-Henri Raphanel hit 268mph on the five-mile straight at Volkswagen's Ehra-Lessien test track.
