2013 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport 300
The Last Veyron Coupe Built, One of Eight US-Spec Super Sports Built. A Technological Tour de Force with 830 Miles from New.
The Veyron Super Sport is an awe-inspiring technological tour de force. Built with the singular mission of being the fastest production car on earth, the car was the first Bugatti to emerge after Volkswagen acquired the rights to the name in 1998. The Veyron was a pet project of Ferdinand Piëch, the then chairman of the VW group. His instructions were simple: build a civilized car capable of a top speed in excess of 400 kph (249 mph). The path to achieve this goal, was anything but, however. The engineering and figures of the car are jaw-dropping: 8 liters of displacement, 16 cylinders, 64 valves, four turbochargers, 1,001 hp. Secondary technical features are no less remarkable: in addition to the 8-piston front and 6-piston rear AP Racing carbon brakes, the handbrake is equipped with ABS for use in the event of an emergency descent (deceleration seems too routine a word) from hyperspeed, while 10 heat exchangers serve the massive cooling needs for all the systems (three intercoolers, three coolant radiators, and one each for the transmission oil, engine oil, differential oil, and air conditioning refrigerant). And when it was new, all this sophistication was backed by a 2-year unlimited mileage warranty, which seems comedically pedestrian for such an exotic piece of equipment.
Not content to rest on their laurels, Bugatti introduced an upgraded version of the Veyron, the Super Sport, for the 2010 model year. With larger turbochargers, additional fuel pumps, and revised aerodynamics, the top speed climbed from 253 mph to 268 mph (when unrestricted) thanks to an increase of around 200 hp. 48 examples were built, of which just eight were US-specification.
This particular is the last of 300 Veyron Coupes built and is one of the eight US-spec cars. Delivered new in August of 2012, and received services at Braman Bugatti in Miami in November 2013 and May of 2015. Additionally, in March of 2015, the car traveled to Geneva where it was displayed on the Bugatti stand alongside the first Veyron built (then belonging to the same owner) in order to celebrate the end of the Veyron’s production run. The car was serviced again in May of 2016 at Bentley of Beverly Hills and has remained in California since, being sparingly driven fewer than 850 miles since new.
