Car and Driver
There are other supercars, but none can touch the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. When designers were asked for an amped-up Veyron, they apparently had little concern for “fiscal prudence or, indeed, the laws of physics.” With its 1,200 hp engine, the SS is so fast that “drop-down oxygen masks” should be required, and so costly you could buy 10 Ferraris and have a fortune left over. Only 40 SS’s will even be built.
Road & Track
Bugatti’s vision for the Super Sport was a “sinister” street vehicle that could be driven every day. And yes, the SS is “smooth, quiet, and comfortable.” But hit the gas and you’re “violently slammed into the seat back,” as though tackled by an NFL linebacker. This might be “the most excessive yet exclusive car ever produced.”
The vehicle’s top speed—268 mph—is in fact a world record for a production car. To put that in perspective, the SS can travel the length of a football field, including end zones, in one second. So don’t let the traditional interior layout and “easy-to-master” heater and stereo controls fool you. This is a car “without equal on this planet.”
