The fastest production car in the world will soon be available in convertible form. The new Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport will boast a removable roof, offering wind-in-the-hair 1001bhp motoring for the first time.
Due to be unveiled at the Pebble Beach Concourse d'Elegance on 16 August in Pebble Beach, California, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport will use the current car's 16-cylinder, quad-turbo engine and transmission along with "innovative structural solutions" to compensate for the reduction in chassis stiffness.
The following day the first Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport build slot will be auctioned by Gooding and Company at the Equestrian Center in Pebble Beach. The car is expected to leave the factory in spring 2009.
