Top Gear - Bugatti Super Sport Speed Test - BBC
The Super Sport version of the Veyron is the fastest street-legal production car in the world, with a top speed of 431.072 km/h. It was named Car of the Decade 2000–2009 by the BBC television programme Top Gear. The standard Bugatti Veyron won Top Gear's Best Car Driven All Year award in 2005. This top speed was verified by James May on Top Gear in November 2006, again at Volkswagen Group's private Ehra-Lessien test track. May noted that at top speed the engine consumes 45,000 litres of air per minute as much as a human breathes in four days . The Veyron at the time had the highest top speed of any street legal production car. Back in the Top Gear studio, co-presenter Jeremy Clarkson commented that most supercars felt like they were shaking apart at their top speed, and asked May if that was the case with the Veyron at 407 km/h. May responded that no, the Veyron was very controlled, and only wobbled a tiny bit when the air brake deployed. Enjoy with this incredible video!
