Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport news - A Bug’s life - 2008

Read more on:

We love the Bugatti Veyron. With its
massive speed, massive price tag and massive kudos, it’s both absurd and
totally awesome.

So what are we to think of this new
convertible version? Well we love this too, obviously.

And we love how it costs £150,000 more than the regular car(!). For that, you get removable glass panels - which you
have to leave at home - and a crappy sort of umbrella to put up in case it
 rains.

Seriously, an umbrella. £150,000 for an
umbrella. Presumably though, almost none of the 150 Grand Sports (that’s
convertible to you and us) will reach drizzly old Britain as most of them will
be finding homes in the Middle East and America, with owners who’ll just take
the other Veyron if it rains.

Let’s just hope their toupes don’t blow
off at 227mph, cos that’s what speed this thing will do with the roof off.
Raise an exploratory hand out at that speed, and it’ll likely rip it clean off.

And according to a bloke called Wolfgang
Schreiber, the Grand Sport is the ‘stiffest roadster in the world’. We assume
he means the chassis, but make your own mind up about any innuendo.

It’s fully appropriate for a car as sexy
as this.
