Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Black Bess
Bugatti has unveiled another special edition of Veyron. Actually, this is the fifth edition part of Bugatti's "Legends" series. It is based on the super powerful Grand Sport Vitesse and comes with a number of unique styling upgrades.
2014 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Black Bess is paying tribute to the Type 18 "Black Bess", which the manufacturer describes as one of the first street-legal super sports cars. The Type 18 "Black Bess" was powered by a 5.0 liter four-cylinder engine with 100HP (73 kW) and achieved a top speed of 161 km/h (100 mph), which was incredible considering the year – 1913.

The top speed is 410 km/h (254 mph). ¼ mile is covered in 10.0 seconds flat and 1 mile in just 25.0 seconds. Other interesting disciplines like 0-100-0 km/h take 5.9 seconds and 0-200-0 take 12.9 seconds. The interesting 0-300-0, which is brutal for the brakes take 23.9 seconds.
