The stated 1,001 horsepower was merely the lowest amount of horsepower the cars would produce in unfavorable conditions. The actual horsepower, however, was higher. The cars had carbon-ceramic disc brakes, 10 radiators, and specially designed tires made by Michelin. Zero-to-sixty mph took 2.5 seconds and decelerating from 62 mph took just 2.2 seconds. This was achieved by the Veyron's rear air brake and spoiler, which provide almost a third of the Veyron's total braking power.

Three years after the Veyron entered production, the new open-top Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport was first shown to the public at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in 2008. Just 150 examples of the Grand Sport were produced.

This particular example is the 54th example constructed. It was retained by Bugatti for promotional purposes and shown throughout the United States. The car was finsihed in a Pearl over Cognac leather interior, and has a center console finished in leather (rather than the standard machine-turned aluminum). The exterior trim strips are done in matching pearl.

The first owner of the car saw it at a show in the summer of 2012 in Vail, when it was on display by Bugatti. After arranging its purchase, Bugatti flew the Grand Sport back to France, where it was fully serviced. Two wheels were replaced, and the car was fitted with four brand new tires. The car was delivered to its first and only owner in April of 2013. By that point in history, the odometer showed just 980 miles. Currently, it has just 1,100 miles.
