Bugatti Announces Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, 2011

submit to reddit

The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport is among the most rare production cars in the world, with perhaps only 40 manufactured. Dan Neil, automotive critic of the Wall Street Journal, is the first journalist to test drive the powerful machine that recently set the speed record for a production car at 268 mph. Neil, who won the Pulitzer Price for criticism in 2004, concludes his review with the paragraph: ” … But for me, what it is is simply the fastest car I will ever drive. No more waiting. Superman is here.”

And in one early passage, Neil, whose column is titled Rumble Seat, writes:

“The Super Sport can accelerate from highway speeds to more than 200 mph in the time it takes you to read this sentence out loud. Literally.”
