Bugatti is making a convertible version of its 1001hp Veyron
1 August 2008

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.

Our Verdict

Bugatti Veyron
The world doesn't need a car like the Bugatti Veyron, but the fact it exists at all is reason for celebration

The Bugatti Veyron redefines what's possible in a road car, but does it justify its eye-watering price?

Brilliant idea..

make it easier for the coroner to scrape the remains out after some rock star tries to flatten Oxford services with it.

Err, yes, all very well but have they actually sold any of the hard top version yet?

by 'not sold' do you mean in the context that supposedly they sell them at less than it costs to make them so in effect they are paying you to take one away?

Thanks God! The wait has paid off - the only reason I didn't buy the last one was because i wanted a convertable veron.

That and the fact that its around 960,000 euros out of my price range...

Did you hear that? The sound of Arabian credit cars being swiped en masse.
