Veyron 16.4 – Grand Sport Vitesse
The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse, the roadster version of the Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, is also a superlative supercar. “Vitesse” is the French word for speed. The Grand Sport Vitesse is the fastest and most powerful production roadster in the world.
This car demonstrates that it is possible to create a roadster version of a supercar with unrivalled performance that is not only incredibly fast and dynamic, but also extremely comfortable and safe to drive. Without a doubt, the most impressive thing is the open-top driving: the passengers are directly exposed to the sound of the engine and turbochargers, ensuring a unique and emotional driving experience. The Grand Sport Vitesse had its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show in 2012 and completes the range of Veyron models.
Grand Sport Vitesse with new finesse
Inspired by the Super Sport, numerous changes were made to the front and rear of the Grand Sport Vitesse in order to optimise the aerodynamics.
Larger air vents were added to the front while the rear features a double diffuser and central dual exhaust just like the Super Sport. The Grand Sport Vitesse’s roof spoiler is also extremely eye-catching.
Unlike the Grand Sport, the Vitesse’s exterior is completely made of carbon fibre. Hence, the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse is also optionally available with clear-coated visible carbon.
Optimised drive system
The increased power compared with the Grand Sport (199 hp) is primarily due to the use of four larger turbochargers and intercoolers. In addition, Bugatti also extensively reinforced all components of the drivetrain in order to safely transmit the immense forces.
The gearing of the seven-speed direct-shift gearbox (DSG) was specially adapted to the new conditions. The use of larger turbochargers and overall reduction in back pressure meant it was even possible to slightly reduce fuel consumption despite the increase in power. The fuel system from the Super Sport was used, including a four-pump tank.
For the Vitesse, Bugatti developed a new roof spoiler that significantly reduces the sound of wind and turbulence in the interior cabin. In addition, there will also be a new wind deflector for the roadster that can be stored compactly in the boot when not in use.
Both details will also be available for the Grand Sport; together, the roof spoiler and wind deflector enable incredibly relaxed open-top driving even at speeds in the region of 200 km/h.

If a person writes a check without sufficient funds in an associated account to cover it, the check will bounce, or be returned for insufficient funds. Each state has laws regulating how merchants may respond to bounced checks. In Connecticut, the merchant may file a civil suit and press criminal charges if the check writer does not reimburse him for a bounced check after the merchant has sent several notices regarding the matter.
Posted Notice Requirement
Merchants and other business owners who accept checks must post a notice where customers are likely to see it warning them of the potential consequences of writing bad checks. The notice must include the civil penalties that bad check writers may face, the appropriate Connecticut statute number and an advisory that the check writer may also face criminal penalties
Civil and Criminal Penalties
As of 2010, civil courts may require the check writer to reimburse the merchant for the value of the check plus pay up to $750 if he has no back account or $400 if the check is returned for insufficient funds. If the merchant chooses to press criminal charges, the bad check writer may face a fine of up to $1,000 and up to one year in jail. Writing a bad check is a felony charge if the check was for more than $1,000 and a misdemeanor if written for a lesser amount.
Required Written Notices
If a check bounces, the merchant must send the check writer a letter by certified mail at the check writer's last known address or place of business. Usually this letter is sent to the address on the writer's check. The letter must inform the writer that the check was returned ask him to reimburse the merchant for the amount of the check and inform him of the potential criminal or civil penalties if he fails to do so. If the check writers does not respond to the letter within 15 days of receipt, the merchant must send a second letter. This letter must inform the check writer that he has 30 days to reimburse the merchant before the merchant takes legal action against him. Both letters must be written in both English and Spanish.
