0 to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds – the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport*) is on a par with modern Formula 1 racecars. 200 km/h in 7.3 seconds, 9.8 seconds for the traditional quarter mile, 407 km/h top velocity. No other convertible ever reached such performance values. Once again, Bugatti is writing automotive history.
The extraordinary velocity of the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 calls for equally extraordinary aerodynamics. To this end the Grand Sport uses three configuration modes that optimally exploit the force impact to provide a maximum of stability. The standard mode is used for speeds up to 220 km/h. At higher velocities, the handling mode is engaged, pulling the vehicle closer to the road surface and deploying the rear spoiler at 15 degrees. Driven with an open roof, the super sports car automatically adjusts this angle to 20 degrees in order to maintain the downforce while preserving the aerodynamic balance. The top speed mode is activated by the driver, who uses his special key to unlock this mode before starting the engine. The top speed mode lowers the position of rear wing and spoiler to 2 degrees and minimizes the chassis clearance, thus enabling the Grand Sport to reach its top velocity – more than 400 kilometres per hour. An enjoyment that the driver needs to be prepared for before he starts, for velocities like these can only be reached with a closed top.
The Grand Sport is a production vehicle on a par with modern Formula 1 racecars.
The aerodynamics system adjusts to the actual speed, keeping the super sports car securely on the road.

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.
