The world’s fastest convertible is… a Bugatti.
Following on the speed of 431.072km/h set by the the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport coupe in 2010, a Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse has set a benchmark for open-top production sports cars at the Volkswagen proving grounds in Ehra-Lessien.
German standards organisation TÜV confirmed that the 885kW Vitesse, driven by the Chinese entrepreneur and passionate racing driver Anthony Liu, reached a top speed of 408.84km/h.
Bugatti boss Dr. Wolfgang Schreiber said: “When we introduced the Vitesse, we established the top speed that was practicable for open-top driving was about 375km/h, but we couldn’t let go of the possibility of reaching the 400km/h milestone with this car as well – and now we’ve done it!”

Frankly, it is cruel to send a guy looking for a new car an article about a Bugatti Vitesse.
