Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport

    The Bugatti Veyron is a multimillion-dollar monument to modern motorcar technology. More than five years went into its development and four turbochargers sit atop its 16-cylinder engine to produce 1,001 hp and 922 ft-lbs of torque. It reaches 60 mph in a hair-raising 2.5 seconds and is capable of speeds in excess of 250 mph, rendering it one of the fastest super cars of all time. Now, the French automaker is building the Grand Sport, a roadster version of the Veyron. Naturally there are a few improvements to accommodate the new top-off configuration, like structural reinforcement for rigidity, carbon-fiber doors, and moisture-resistant interior leather. The Grand Sport also features new LED headlamps and slightly taller windshield—presumably to protect occupants from potential headwinds in excess of 200 mph. Only one questions remains: Where to store the transparent polycarbonate detachable top? Pros: The ultimate expression of wind-in-your-hair acceleration. Cons: Take the top off and you leave yourself open to hecklers and hero-worshipers alike.
