Top Gear says it was involved in Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport’s top speed record

2011 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport

Over the weekend, Bugatti unveiled another limited edition Veyron. Known as the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, the new model broke a new landspeed world record for production cars hitting a top speed of 267.81 mph.

Apparently, the guys at Top Gear were involved in the whole situation. How? Here’s what they tell us so far.

Now, we wouldn’t want to give anything away, but you know how TopGear has always been pretty intimately involved with high-speed runs in the Veyron? Remember, for example, James’s blast to 253mph in Series 9?

Well, let’s just say… it would have been a bit strange for us not to have been part of this astonishing record run in some capacity. We’re not saying any more, but keep a close eye on all things TopGear in the coming weeks…

Guess we’ll have to wait and find out.

Refresher: The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport makes a total of 1,200-hp (up from 1,001-hp) with a maximum torque of 1,106 lb-ft. Top speed for the production models will be electronically limited to 259 mph to protect the tires. The first five units will feature a special-series of their own with the same configuration as the landspeed record car.
