Bugatti has unveiled the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse at the Geneva Motor Show. Now, the manufacturer has released full details about the new convertible Grand Sport.

2012 Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse is powered by an 8.0 liter W16 quad-turbo engine with mind blowing 1200HP (883 kW) and 1500Nm (1106 lb-ft) of torque. The engine is paired with a 7-speed DSG gearbox. It sends all that torque to an AWD system. 0-100 km/h in 2.6 seconds and to 200 km/h in 7.1 seconds, to 300 km/h in 16 seconds dead. The top speed is 410 km/h (254 mph).  ¼ mile is covered in 10.0 seconds flat and 1 mile in just 25.0 seconds.

Other interesting disciplines like 0-100-0 km/h take 5.9 seconds and 0-200-0 take 12.9 seconds. The interesting 0-300-0, which is brutal for the brakes take 23.9 seconds.

The official fuel consumption is 23.1 liters per 100 km on average cycle and the city cycle is around 37.2 liters per 100 km, so the owners will visit gas stations very often.

The overall weight of the vehicle is 1990 kg and the fuel tank can take up to 100 litres of fuel or around 250 km range in city.

The suspension features three different settings: Standard, Handling and Top Speed.

The brake system includes 400 mm front discs with 8 piston calipers and 380 mm discs at the rear with 6 piston calipers.
