Bugatti Veyron Super Sport Edition Merveilleux birthday gift unveiled

December 15, 2011

Bugatti has unveiled a one-off hypercar called the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport Edition Merveilleux. The quad-turbo monster features a bespoke interior with darkened highlights throughout.

As if the Veyron Super Sport isn’t already enough, one new Chinese owner decided that he wanted a bit more for his 40th birthday. So Bugatti built him this special edition which will actually be China’s first ever Bugatti Veyron Super Sport in the country.

It features a full carbon fibre body, like the normal SS, only it’s painted clear giving it a shiny carbon fibre look. It also gets black-shadow machined face alloy wheels to match, to give it that ultra stealthy look.

Inside is where most of the customisation comes in though. The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport Edition Merveilleux features a fully upholstered blue cabin, extending to the seats with black logos, as well as blue trimmings behind the seats and up to the roof liner.

As per the ‘normal’ Super Sport, in the back is an 8.0-litre quad-turbo W16 engine producing 882kW of power and 1500Nm of torque. It’s able to smash 0-100km/h in just 2.5 second, and complete a quarter mile in 9.9 seconds (you can check out a video of a run at the bottom of this post).

Of course, the main feat the Super Sport is able to boast is the world’s fastest production car, achieving 431km/h.
