When the Bugatti Veyron was first launched, the world was left awe-struck and it’s little wonder why. Not only did the original Veyron pack 987 screaming horsepowers, but it’s advanced all-wheel drive system and millimeter perfect aerodynamics all played large roles in helping to create the legend which is bound to be talked about decades down the road.

However, as the years have flown by, Bugatti has been forced to continually update the car in order to remain at the forefront of automotive technology and the recently launched Grand Sport Vitesse is the epitome of that statement. In a recent road test, EVO magazine was lucky enough to get their hands on what promises to be the world’s fastest convertible, if the Hennessey Venom GT Spyder doesn’t reach its top speed claim.

Before you watch the video, just keep the following figures in mind. The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse features the same 8.0-liter W16 engine as its coupe brethren and also pumps out 1200HP and 1106lb-ft of torque helping to launch the car to 62 mph in just 2.6 seconds and onto a top speed in excess of 250 mph.
