Reading “Bugatti” already evokes concepts such as speed, performance and (lots of) power. The Super Sport acronym, however, is even more exclusive. Each generation of Bugatti has had its own ultra-high-performance version and the House has brought them together for a truly exceptional group photo.
The beginning of the legend
The first Super Sport was her: the Bugatti Type 55. It is the only Super Sport of the era of Ettore Bugatti and was presented at the Paris Motor Show in 1931. The 38 units built were fitted with a 2.3 supercharged 8-cylinder in-line, hidden by elegant shapes, capable of making the car exceed 180 km / h.

By pressing the “Fast Forward” button on the time machine, you get to the 1990s and the EB 110 Super Sport, produced in 39 units. This Bugatti was the first production car to be made partially of carbon fiber. Thanks to the intensive use of lightweight materials, the bodywork showed only 125 kg on the scale.

V12 was supported by quattro turbo for a total power of 610 HP. All this was combined with all-wheel drive and a 6-speed manual gearbox complete with a limited-slip rear differential. The result? A top speed of 351 km / h and a 0-100 km / h covered in 3.26 seconds.
We then come to the 2000s. Under the new ownership of the Volkswagen Group, here is the Bugatti Veyron. In the Super Sport version, made in 48 units, the 8.0 W16 is capable of reaching 1,217 HP and a monstrous torque of 1250 Nm.

Sophisticated aerodynamics completes the hypercar package, capable of reaching the record speed of 431 km / h in 2010. All the fury of the 16-cylinder is unleashed in just a few seconds: 0-100 km / h acceleration is 2 , 5 seconds and 7.3 are enough to reach 200 km / h from a standstill.
Bugatti Chiron Super Sport
The last stop on the Super Sports journey is the Chiron. Renamed 300+ in reference to the miles per hour it can reach (490 km / h), it is still one of the fastest cars on the planet.
The engine is still an 8.0 W16 heavily revised compared to the Veyron, so much so that it reaches 1600 hp and 1600 Nm of torque (+100 hp compared to a “base” Chiron).
