Just days ago, the Bugatti Super Sport rocketed past the SSC Ultimate Aero TT to claim the prestigious award of the fastest production car in the world. SSC (Shelby Supercars) didn’t take long to congratulate Bugatti and to also give fair warning of a future title battle.

The new Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport takes production sports cars to a whole new dimension Wolfsburg/Molsheim, July 4, 2010 – on a beautiful sunny day at 25 degrees the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport achieved a new landspeed world record for production cars, on the proving grounds of the Volkswagen Group at Ehra-Lessien (nearby its headquarters at Wolfsburg).
