A roadster with
a transparent roof
Bugatti wanted to design a roadster that redefined the technical limits of automotive engineering while also appealing to connoisseurs of aesthetic design and lovers of unique cars.
The designers combined their creative finesse with the technical expertise of the engineers to achieve a perfect balance of luxurious elegance and superlative technical performance.
Quilted napa leather
The Grand Sport only uses top-quality napa leather that has been carefully processed so as to retain its natural breathability. Based on historic models, the leather seat covers have been quilted using a method that has been reinterpreted for use in a modern car. The pattern symbolizes an acceleration curve.
The moisture-repellent leather allows the Grand Sport to meet the very highest of expectations for an open-top sports car. The result is a minimalist aesthetic – form and function in perfect harmony.

The Veyron’s specs took automotive performance into a new dimension. It is the first – and the only – supercar to be developed and constructed with a series configuration that can master any driving scenario at any time.
While other supercars need to be specially prepared for the relevant scenario beforehand, the Veyron rapidly configures itself accordingly without the driver needing to do anything. Maximum acceleration on long straights, winding country roads or urban traffic – the Veyron is always perfectly configured and extremely comfortable to drive.
A characteristic feature of the Grand Sport are the two air scoops on the left and right of the bonnet (which are redesigned for the Vitesse). These air scoops serve two functions in the roadster: firstly, they provide air intake for the engine and secondly, they are an elegantly integrated component of the rollover protection system.
Just like the Super Sport, the Vitesse uses a full-carbon monocoque which enables an extremely high torsional rigidity of 22,000 Nm per degree with maximum passive safety. The exterior is also made completely of carbon fibre.
