First Impressions from Geneva 2010: Bugatti Grand Sport

Over the past few years Bugatti has released a lot of versions of its Veyron supercar, but the Bugatti Grand Sport model hasn’t been out enough to get too many variations. Bugatti released the Sang Bleu version of  last summer in Monterey.

And that was all about the variation of the Bugatti Grand Sport until the bugatti’s show here in Geneva. Bugatti has brought out a brand new Grand Sport finished in carbon fiber covered in clearcoat and polished aluminum. Other than the wheels, the car is completely stunning to look at (check the gallery below).

The ‘ordinary’ Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport features the 16-cylinder, quad-turbocharged engine with 1,001 horsepower and 922 lb-ft of torque is programmed not to let you damage it. The car’s brake rotors are chaperoned by 28 brake pistons, but using them forcefully is like begging someone to plow into the aforementioned engine. The ‘ordinary’ Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport will cost you €1.6 million (roughly $2.24M USD), and you’ll probably never know what the acceleration of Veyron is looks like.

We’re fully agree with the guys from AutoBlog, that if we have the cash to buy and maintain a Bugatti, the carbon fiber finish would be the first option we would check off.
