Bugatti has quietly begun testing the Veyron Super Sport at the Nürburgring.
While the company hasn't made any announcements, speculation has suggested the automaker could be attempting to set a new lap record. If this is the case, the supercar would have to lap the Nordschleife in less than 6:48 to beat the Radical SR8LM.
As we have previously reported, the Super Sport features a quad turbocharged, 8.0-liter 16-cylinder engine that produces 1,200 PS (882 kW / 1183 hp) and 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the supercar to hit a limited top speed of 415 km/h (258 mph), but an unlimited model set a land speed record for production cars when it averaged 431 km/h (268 mph) in 2010.
