Bugatti has been through much turmoil as of late–having the coveted title of ‘Fastest Production Car’ stripped away by Guinness World Records over a glitch in the rules. The supercar has now been reinstated as the fastest car, following a review by the famous records keeper.
The Bugatti Veyron remains the world’s fastest production car after all. We would still love a duel between the Veyron SS and the Hennessey Venom GT!
The title was stripped from the Veyron SS following uproar over the official rules. The rules state that the fastest production car must be made available to buyers as-is. The Veyron won the title at the speed of 268 miles per hour, but limited the production version to 258. The big deal has since been reduced to details, as the brand has its glory back.
A Guinness World Records rep explained the predicament and final solution:
“Following a thorough review conducted with a number of external experts, Guinness World Records is pleased to announce the confirmation of Bugatti’s record of Fastest production car achieved by the Veyron 16.4 Super Sport. The focus of the review was with respect to what may constitute a modification to a car’s standard specification. Having evaluated all the necessary information, Guinness World Records is now satisfied that a change to the speed limiter does not alter the fundamental design of the car or its engine.”
Bugatti has unloaded a jaw-dropping 30 units of the million-plus dollar Veyron. That is some serious dough, and much of the commissions are enjoyed by just one woman! Bugatti’s top salesperson is Anita Krizan, who sold 11 Veyron supercars in just one year. Her impressive endeavors include the sale of the one-off Bugatti Veyron L’or Blanc, the flawless porcelain beast.
Now that things have returned to normal, Bugatti can continue its quest to develop meaner and faster hypercars rather than haggle with Guinness.
