This special Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse will be available in a World Record Car (WRC) Edition, which is limited to eight vehicles. The price per vehicle is $2,400,000.

The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse has set the world speed record for open-top production sports cars at the Volkswagen Group's proving grounds in Ehra-Lessien. TÜV, the renowned independent German organization for Technical Inspection and Certification, has officially confirmed that a top speed of 254.04 mph (408.84 km/h) was achieved.

The Vitesse was driven by the Chinese racing driver Anthony Liu.

Bugatti had previous experience with record-setting speeds, having achieved 268 mph (431 km/h) in a Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport in 2010, which is still the record for production cars.

"When we introduced the Vitesse, we established the top speed for open-top driving to be 375 km/h. Still, we could not let go of the idea of reaching the 400 km/h mark with this car as well. The fact that we have succeeded in reaching 408.84 km/h is a thrill for me, and it reaffirms once again that Bugatti is the leader when it comes to technology in the international automotive industry", said Dr. Wolfgang Schreiber, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S.

The Vitesse was driven by a young Chinese entrepreneur and passionate race driver Anthony Liu.

"This was a very exciting moment. In our training sessions we exceeded 400 km/h but the fact that I could surpass this unbelievable speed once again and even higher has made me very proud. The car is even at such high speeds incredibly comfortable and stable. With an open top, you can really experience the sound of the engine and yet even at higher speeds I did not get compromised by the wind at all," commented the 29-year old after achieving the world record in the Vitesse.
