he world's most significant celebration of the automobile takes
place annually in Monterey, California.
This year, it will see some of the most elegant, exclusive, and valuable vehicles
ever produced in over 100 years of motoring, with Bugatti set to play a
prominent role. On the evening prior to the Pebble Beach Concours
d'Elegance, the highlight of the event, the marque renowned for impeccable
automotive solutions, aesthetics and driving dynamics will unveil a second
model to the world – the new Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport with a unique
removable roof.
In response to customer demand, significant modifications have been made to
the vehicle's complex structure to make possible open-top driving, thereby
adding a new dimension to this high-performance sports car. Incorporating a
host of new and innovative safety and equipment features, it is the world's
fastest and most exciting roadster. It is immediately recognizable as a result of
its slightly higher windscreen, stylized daytime running lights, and lightweight,
transparent polycarbonate roof.
The main challenge in developing the new Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport
with removable roof resulted from the unique structure of the fixed-roof Bugatti
Veyron. An optimum combination of rigidity and lightweight engineering
ensures the monocoque passenger cell of the original model is extremely
strong while weighing an absolute minimum – it is a central element of the
vehicle's structure. As the roof is an integral part of this, removing it meant
the load paths had to be completely redesigned to maintain the vehicle's
rigidity and crash safety, and to offer additional protection from side impacts
and rolling.

What Is The Secret
As a result, the monocoque structure
has been reinforced around the side
skirts and the transmission tunnel.
The B-pillars have been cross-stiffened
using a carbon fibre support, and a
central carbon plate has been positioned
beneath the transmission tunnel to
ensure the vehicle suffers from less
torsional flexing than any other roadster.
The doors of the new Bugatti Veyron
16.4 Grand Sport are made of carbon
fibre, and house an integrated
longitudinal beam. In the event of an
accident, this transfers the load from the
A to the B-pillar, thereby dissipating
impact energy. Furthermore, the two
redesigned air intakes for the
16-cylinder mid-engine now feature
10-centimetre wide carbon-fibre elements

to offer protection should the car roll. Along with moisture-resistant
backstitched leather, a range of new equipment features has been added to
the interior, including a reversing camera with 2.7-inch monitor in the
rear-view-mirror, and the "Puccini" sound system with digital signal processor.
When the roof is closed, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport can reach 407
km/h, while speeds of up to 360 km/h are possible with roof off. Should it rain,
an innovative folding roof stored in the luggage compartment can be opened
up like an umbrella at any time. When this folding roof is in place, the car can
travel at up to 130 km/h. Assembled by hand at the company's headquarters
in Molsheim, Alsace, the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport will be available from March
2009 at the price of 1.4 million euros (excluding tax). Just 150 examples will be
made, with the first 50 of these going exclusively to registered Bugatti
customers. The first vehicle is certain to be highly sought after, and Bugatti
has taken the decision to donate this specific car to charity.
It will be sold to the highest bidder at the Pebble Beach Auction presented by
Gooding & Company
