Standard equipments
Premium "Nappa sensitive" leather and Italian alcantara interior surfaces, carbon fiber seats covered in leather, engine-turned aluminum interior accents, aluminum pedals, heated seats, CD player, seven speed DSG transmission with paddle shifters, two-tone paint scheme, variable tail spoiler for aerodynamics and air braking, front and rear carbon ceramic brakes, bi-Xenon headlamps. The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 was designed to be a sportscar which would explore the limits of the technically possible and which would, in every respect, be committed to the extreme. The idea was to design a car that would uncompromisingly unite the passion of the designer, the skill of the engineer, absolute luxury and racing technology. The idea was to interpret the car as a work of art. The idea was to build a Bugatti. This incredible automobile can accelerate from 0-62 mph in 2.5 seconds on it's way to a top speed of 252 mph. Braking from 248 mph takes less than 10 seconds as a result of the Veyron's carbon cermaic brakes and rear spoiler that acts as an air brake.Priced at $2.25 per piece, only 50 Veyrons per year will be built for the world, a total production run of 300 cars will be built over 6 years.

The Bugatti Veyron is among the most exclusive cars in the world, a 1,000-horsepower super exotic owned by fewer than 150 people. Every one of them is about to be upstaged by the drop-dead gorgeous roadster Bugatti will unveil later this month at the Pebble Beach Concours.
Bugatti pulled the wraps off the stunning Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport this morning. The company isn't saying much about the car before its Aug. 16 premier, but does say that structural changes and other innovations make the roadster as rigid -- and safe -- as the coupe, which does zero to 60 in as little as 2.3 seconds (Bugatti claims 2.5) and tops out at 253 mph.
The top looks opaque but is actually clear, and the car looks just as good with it as without. Aerodynamic tweaks improve airflow, allowing the two lucky occupants to enjoy the growl of the Veyron's 16-cylinder engine and the blurred landscape passing at 250 mph without mussing their hair.
The first Grand Sport will be auctioned Aug. 17 at the concours.
