Alpine Exotic Car Dealer | Long Island Bugatti Vitesse
There has been a marriage in the Bugatti family. They took the best of the Grand Sport and Super Sport, and melded them into an incredible vehicle called the Vitesse. Many of the exterior design cues of the Super Sport are visible on the Vitesse, including the enlarged front air scoops that are carried around to the front wheel housings, the central exhaust and rear-end design with double diffuser, and the visual lines along the sides. On the other hand, the Grand Sport is visible in the dual function air scoops with rollover protection. One departure from the Grand Sport is the fact that the entire body of the Vitesse is formed from carbon fiber, which can be ordered with a clear-coat finish to leave it visible.
To carry over the open-top design of the Grand Sport, the Vitesse has a removable windbreak that can be stored in the luggage compartment when not used. There is also a new visible roof spoiler that significantly reduces wind noise in the cabin, allowing open-top driving at speeds in excess of 120 mph.
The Vitesse incorporates safety in its design with a full carbon fiber monocoque body. This imparts great strength to the design, providing needed rigidity for open-top driving, particularly since flexing can create instability on twisting roads. This carbon fiber structure also acts as a safety cage for the occupants, providing a safe zone around them in impact accidents.
The interior of the Vitesse continues Bugatti’s tradition of expertise and fine craftsmanship. Carbon fiber is again evident in interior structures, along with highest-quality aluminum and magnesium. Two-tone leather seats with contrasting stitching create a stylish accent to complete the ambiance of this open-top roadster. The Vitesse has other subtle additions; knee pads in the center tunnel, lighted start and parking brake buttons, and an additional 12-volt socket are some of the additions. Also, Bugatti has included a Park Distance Control feature in the front and rear of the vehicle to aid in parking situations.
Obviously, the Vitesse relies on the same magnificent 16-cylinder power plant used in the Bugatti line. This 1001 horsepower behemoth is linked to the 7-gear automatic gearbox that shifts with seamless control taken from racing cars. The electronics suite used to control and monitor the vehicle functions remains the same, with dynamic and static control for maximum efficiency and stability on straight roads or twisty ones. The rear spoiler remains from other models, used both to create down forces as the vehicle accelerates, and to act as an air brake for more effective deceleration and braking.
Bugatti has the ability to create a custom palette of both exterior colors and interior appointments.
