Watch as the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse is crowned “World’s Fastest Convertible”

The Bugatti Veyron has a new speed record to its name, and evo was present at Ehra-Lessien to witness it. The Bugatti Veyron Vitesse is officially the fastest roadster in the world. The 1184bhp, open-top Grand Sport hit 408.84 km/h. Behind the Vitesse’s wheel was Chinese racing driver Anthony Liu, a 29-year-old who praised the Veyron’s comfort and stability at record-breaking speeds.

The Vitesse’s record takes some of the attention away from the 267.8mphVeyron Super Sport, which has been dropped of its Guinness World Record for fastest production car owing to models sold to the public being limited to 258mph. US rival Hennessey is looking to take advantage, its 1244bhp Venom GT topping 265mph last week and aiming for more than 275mph.
