Bugatti 1 – Hennessy nil

Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is once again the world’s fastest production car, according to the Guinness Book of World Records.

Last week Guinness stripped the record from Bugatti after complaints from rival hillbillies carmaker Hennessy claiming the Veyron Super Sport had its speed limiter removed and was therefore not “production” spec.

A statement from Guinness can be read after the break.

Guinness World Records statement: Fastest production car

Following a thorough review conducted with a number of external experts, Guinness World Records is pleased to announce the confirmation of Bugatti’s record of Fastest production car achieved by the Veyron 16.4 Super Sport.

The focus of the review was with respect to what may constitute a modification to a car’s standard specification.

Having evaluated all the necessary information, Guinness World Records is now satisfied that a change to the speed limiter does not alter the fundamental design of the car or its engine.
