Pick any ten year period in the history of the automobile and you’ll likely see significant changes in technology, styling, features and performance over that period. Now consider the fact that the Bugatti Veyron, which recently ended its production run, was on sale since 2005. For all that time, though, the Veyron has remained at the top of the heap, the fastest production car in the world. The final versions of Ferdinand Piech’s statement that he and the VW group have the biggest BSD in the car world were Grand Sport Vitesse editions, with a convertible Targa style roof. They also came with bigger turbos, 1,200 horsepower and a top speed of over 408 kilometers an hour, making it the fastest roadster ever. Manhattan Motorcars displayed one at the 2015 New York Auto Show.
What folks are saying:
"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
