There is no more prestigious place to check out world class cars than Katie's Coffee House on Saturday mornings when the weather is nice. Julie and I were up at Chik Fil-A on Friday night talking to the owner of a Lamborghini Diablo when one of my Corvette friends said that there was a strong rumor that a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse would be at Katie's tomorrow morning. At 8am I got the photo from Steve Ferry and immediately drove up there. Below are a number of photos of the Veyron, a lot of original Mini Coopers, Steve's 1940 Ford coupe he just purchased and a Morgan 3.
According to Road & Track, here are the specs:
"It has adapted the Veyron Super Sport coupe's drivetrain to the removable-top Grand Sport body style. To do this, engineers increase the size of the turbochargers and intercoolers to boost the 8.0-liter W-16 engine to 1200 bhp and 1106 lb.-ft. of torque. This is the drivetrain that propels the Super Sport to 268 mph, the current world record for a production car. The car will likely slingshot to 60 mph in 2.4 seconds. Now that's grand vitesse, although your production car will likely be limited to just 258 mph for tire reasons"
Below is a video of the Veyron:
