Bugatti Veyron Grand Super Sport May Debut In Geneva

The Geneva Motor Show is no stranger to sexy, exotic European-built supercars. In fact, we'd have to call the March show the ground zero for such cars. This year's show won't be an exception to that trend, with cars like a new Gumpert supercar and rumored Lamborghini Aventador roadster expected to be among the new debuts. According to recent reports, a high-performance version of the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport roadster will also be a part of the Geneva festivities.

With the Veyron 16.4 having run through its prouction life cycle, Bugatti is now left to focus on its sole remaining model: the Veyron Grand Sport. Back in the summer, we first heard a loose rumor from the Netherlands that Bugatti was planning to add a more powerful Grand Sport model to its line. An article in Autovisie cited Bugatti/Bentley chief Wolfgang Durheimer as quoting an output figure between the 1,001 hp of the standard Veyron Grand Sport and the 1,200 hp of the Veyron Super Sport.

This week, another report originating in the Netherlands puts the upgraded Grand Sport at the Geneva Motor Show. Autoblog.nl says that Bugatti has already started taking orders of the model with deliveries to begin later this year.

The Veyron Grand Super Sport's specifications are still up in the air, but based on the aformentioned Durheimer quote, we gather that it will offer somewhere around 1,100 hp. From spy photos taken last year, we also know that the model shares some equipment with the hard-top Super Sport, including its bumpers and exhaust tips.

The Geneva Motor Show seems like the perfect venue for a Grand Super Sport debut, so don't be surprised if this rumor becomes reality.

Seems like they are making cars faster these days. But what i dont get is how can they be street legal if they can go over 200mph.
