Bugatti Veyron hits 246mph on the road


Bugatti Veyron

The Bugatti Veyron is not a car lacking in power, with around 1,000bhp in "standard" form. However, the Veyron SS, blows ordinary Veyrons into the weeds, with no less than 1,200bhp on tap. That's enough to fire it all the way up to a top speed of 267.91mph.

The video below from the Sun Valley Road Race in Idaho, USA gives you a taste of just how fast that is. Okay, the car may not hit speeds quite that high, but we're still pretty impressed by the mere 246.4mph achieved here.

This is no ordinary Veyron SS though – this white model is the one one-off Veyron Super Sport "Pur Blanc". And it's not just its speed that gets your attention. With a sound that wouldn't be out of place in a supersonic jet, this 8.0-litre 16-cylinder monster is a sight to be seen – and heard.
