The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport*) provides a maximum of safety both during acceleration and at high speeds.
This superior security is made possible by the precise aerodynamic balance of lift and downforce. Ground clearance and the position of the rear spoiler are adjusted automatically to suit the driving situation, keeping the super sports car securely on the road. The four-point electronic stability programme additionally enhances driving safety at high speed. At the heart of the system is the four-wheel drive: the Haldex clutch distributes the torque to the front and rear axles, while the rear differential lock ensures the dynamics of the rear wheels for smooth negotiation of fast curves.
The perfectly designed suspension and precise steering give the car excellent stability even at top speeds. The electronic stability programme acts on each individual wheel, resulting in previously unmatched reaction times. The electronic stability programme also provides intelligent motor management control. At the centre of this highly sophisticated technology is the telemetric computer, which controls all vehicle data. This information can be accessed at all times via the Grand Sport’s PDA, integrated in the dashboard.
The consistent use of carbon fibre in the car’s body ensures enhanced rigidity despite the open form of the Grand Sport. This lightweight, yet ultra-strong material is also used to reinforce the doors, resulting in the lowest torsion to be found in a convertible. Indispensable but commonly unsightly, the roll hoops in the Grand Sport are smartly integrated in the air sockets. Thus, they provide constant rollover protection while remaining completely invisible.
Maximum safety for speeds of up to 400 km/h and beyond
The monocoque, re-conceptualized to match the requirements of a convertible super sports car, keeps the passengers safe – even in dangerous situations.

The values were calculated using the prescribed measurement method (§ 2, numbers 5, 6, 6 per car energy labeling ordinance in its current version). CO2 emissions, which result from the production and provision of fuel or other energy sources are not taken into account in the determination of CO2 emissions pursuant to Directive 1999/94/EC. The figures do not refer to a specific vehicle and are not part of the offer, but only serve the purpose of comparing different vehicle types. The fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of a vehicle not only depend on the efficient utilization of the fuel by the vehicle, but also on driving style and other non-technical factors. CO2 is the main greenhouse gas responsible for global warming. Notice pursuant to Directive 1999/94/EC of each current valid version: For more information on official fuel consumption and the specific official CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be acquired from the "Guide for Fuel Economy, CO2 Emissions and Power Consumption of New Passenger Cars" available at all sales outlets and at DAT German Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Strasse 1, D-73760 Ostfildern – available free of charge or at www.dat.de. Efficiency classes of vehicles are evaluated in terms of CO2 emissions by means of the vehicle's empty weight. Vehicles that correspond to the average are classified as D. Vehicles that are better are graded with A+, A, B or C. Vehicles that are worse than the average are given an E, F or G.
