The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is self-limited to 415 km / h to avoid extreme tire degradation, only a few units would reach 447 km / h, although the Guinness organization is not suspected.

Thus, the list of vehicles-or rather, superdeportivos- faster production of the world changes substantially, if we understand that the record of the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport 2010 is invalidated. We review the 'Top 5' from the list:

In the case of this spectacular supercar, only 29 units will be produced. Heart Corvette ZR1, propellant specially prepared V8 LS9 7 liters, and Lotus Exige body, which gather the chassis.
