The Veyron Grand Sport offers open top motoring at the supercar level, though it is not a true convertible model. Bugatti determined that releasing a Veyron convertible would not provide the safety at high speed the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 is known for, so they opted for a Targa model in the Grand Sport, with a removable polycarbonate roof.
The Veyron Grand Sport base price? A cool 1.4 million Euros, if you can find one. Production will be limited to just 150 units, with 50 earmarked for current Bugatti customers who feel the need to own two Veyrons. Read on for all the details, directly from the technological wizards at Bugatti...

COMMENTARY: I was just horsing around and came upon an article about the Bugatti Veyron 16.4, a super sports car with a top speed of 250+ miles per hour. .The Veyron is easily faster than an Indy race car with incredible speed and manuverability.
