The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse, also known as the Bugatti Veyron Vitesse, is an upgraded version of the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport with the Super Sport's engine. It is currently the fastest roadster in the world, with a top speed record of 254.04 mph (408.84 km/h), achieved in 2013.
Unveiled at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse is a version of the Grand Sport with a Super Sport engine. The engine, an 8.0 L (7,990 cc; 487.6 cu in) quad-turbocharged W16, produces 1183 hp (882 kW) at 6,400 rpm and 1106 ft·lb (1500 N·m) at 3,000-5,000 rpm. Pricing starts at US$1.9 million (without tax and transportation).
The Vitesse can do 0 - 60 mph (0 - 97 km/h) in 2.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 254.04 mph (408.84 km/h), verified by Chinese racing driver Anthony Liu at Volkswagen Group's proving grounds in Ehra-Lessien, Germany. On normal roads, the car is electronically limited to 233 mph (375 km/h).
Weighing at most 4387 lb (1990 kg), the Veyron Vitesse has a power-to-weight ratio of 595 hp (444 kW) per tonne or 3.71 lb (1.68 kg) per tonne.
A number of special editions of the Vitesse were made. The Vitesse SE, inspired by Bugatti Type 37A, was unveiled in 2012 and sold for €1.74 million (US$2.2 million). The World Record Car (WRC) Edition was limited to 8 units, debuted in 2013, and went on sale for €1.99 million.
In 2013, Bugatti produced a series of Vitesses dedicated to racing legends, including Jean-Pierre Wimille, Jean Bugatti, Meo Costantini, and Ettore Bugatti.
The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse is featured in Asphalt Nitro as a Class S car. This time, though, while relatively unchanged from its initial Asphalt 8: Airborne rendition (aside from the color choices), its name is now correctly displayed as Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse.
The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse was the cover car of Asphalt Nitro during its beta version.

Performance & usage
While the Seventh Anniversary update improved the Veyron's acceleration, top speed and nitro efficiency, it still retains its average handling & drifting radius. Its new placement & performance allows it to compete with the Rezvani Beast Alpha, McLaren Mercedes MP4-25, Italdesign Zerouno, Ferrari SF90 Stradale, Lotus Evija and Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, but will require an Extra Tank for longer tracks.
The Veyron can be considered as a non-Festival version of the Zerouno, SF90 Stradale, and Corvette ZR1 as all have rapid acceleration and identical top speeds, but the Veyron has the weakest nitro efficiency.
The Veyron was previously one of the only vehicles in the game with an irregular raw top speed-to-nitro ratio, similar to the Ferrari FXX Evoluzione and Mercedes-Benz Silver Lightning, which were originally located nearby to the Veyron in the garage. However, the Veyron's new buffed speed no longer has an irregular ratio.
The Veyron is currently one of the cheapest vehicles in the entire game considering its rank and performance, with a price of 1,100,000 (Note: This was the Veyron's original price before its buff; currently, this price has not yet increased.) However, this price may change in the future. For now, the Veyron is a must-have for any novice player.
The Veyron occupies the highest-ranked position within Class A of any normally purchasable vehicle. Only the Cadillac 16 Concept, which can be unlocked from Mastery, and is hence available at all times, albeit at a very high price, is ranked higher. Several vehicles that can be unlocked from various special events or exclusive sales are ranked higher than the Veyron within Class A.
While the Veyron has a higher base top speed versus lower-ranked Class S vehicles, it is greatly hampered by its poor acceleration, similar to the Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS and Aston Martin DB9 Coupé. Another disadvantage is its low nitro boost, coupled with horrendous nitro efficiency. It has a maximum total speed of 285.7 mph/460.1 km/h, identical to that of the McLaren 650S GT3.
The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse is considered one of the worst cars in the game due to its disappointing performance, as well as the high rarity of W16 Engine cards, of which it required 36 for its Pro Kits. The Veyron is also lacking in terms of Car Mastery rewards. Due to the availability of better vehicles like the Pagani Huayra BC, Apollo Intensa Emozione, and Mazda RX-8 Special Edition, the Bugatti sees little use in events and Multiplayer. It is required for two races in Career Mode: a Classic race in London, and a Versus race against the Ferrari FXX Evoluzione in Alps Reverse.
The Ferrari FXX Evoluzione, which costs 100,000 less, is often considered a better alternative to the Veyron, and the TVR Sagaris, with upgrades, is able to match the Veyron in terms of total speed (albeit behind by 0.9 mph/1.4 km/h), while having a better nitro efficiency rating and faster acceleration, although it handles worse. In addition, the 650S GT3 has the exact same total speed as the Veyron but has 200% the Veyron's nitro boost, better nitro efficiency, much faster acceleration, and similar overall handling at the expense of stability.
MultiplayerThe Veyron is never seen in Multiplayer as it will be placed into races with the Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition, Acura NSX GT3 Evo, and the McLaren MP4/8, of which the Veyron cannot compete with.
As of the 2019 Spring Update, upgrades cost 1,215,000 while Pro Kits require 405,600, 12 of each Class S Part, 24 Mid-Techs, 16 Advanced Techs and 20 W16 Engines.
