The Mighty Veyron Stripped of Speed Title
09 April 2013
According to Guinness World Record officials, the Bugatti that was tested and set the record was modified and hence ineligible. The Veyron in question had its speed restrictor deactivated – which is the key difference to the Bugatti Veyron SS that is sold to the public. The team at Guinness argued that the car sold to the public must be the exact same one that is used to test the speed. The folks over at Guinness went on to state that ''as the car's speed limiter was deactivated, this modification was against the official guidelines. Consequently, the vehicle's record set at 431.072km/h is no longer valid”.
What makes this story a tad scandalous is that the issue was brought to Guinness’ attention after rival John Hennessey’s car, the Venom GT, recorded a 427.6km/h in Texas – which he is claiming makes the Venom GT the fastest car in the world. Tut tut Mr Hennessey.
