Time to daydream: Going super fast ... topless



veyron_0.jpgWhat's better than the fastest car on the planet? How about the fastest car with the top down. Bugatti unveiled the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse at the Geneva International Motor Show this week. The "most powerful production roadster ever" will hit 0-62 mph in a blink-of-an-eye 2.6 seconds. No, that's not a typo. 2.6 seconds! The all-wheel drive Vitesse gets a whopping 1,200 horsepower from the 7.9-liter W-16 engine with four turbochargers. Inside, it's decked out with carbon fiber, aluminum, magnesium and premium leather. But here's where I bring you back down to reality. Price tag: 1.75 million Euros or about $2.3 million.
