Bugatti has claimed another top speed world record – 408.84km/h for its Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse roadster – just days after the Veyron Super Sport was stripped of its 431 km/h title by Guinness World Records. To celebrate what is now officially the world’s fastest open top production sportscar, Bugatti will produce eight World Record Car editions of the Grand Sport Vitesse, each priced at €1.99 million ($A2.47m) plus taxes.
Renault has released a new promotional video that features the Mégane Trophy V6 as a taxi. The clip shows the high-performance race car transporting businessmen and shoppers around Paris. The Mégane Trophy V6 is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that develops 400 HP (295 kW) and 422 Nm (311 lb-ft) of torque. It’s got a full roll cage, slick tires, and suspension dropped to the tarmac. In other words, it’s made for racing, not for picking up fares. Good times.
