Bugatti to introduce open-top Veyron

Bugatti has long been rumored to be mulling over the idea of producing an open-top version of its outrageous Veyron closed-roof supercar, but now the Volkswagen-owned manufacturer has confirmed plans for a Veyron sans top.

The Veyron-without-a-roof will feature a targa-style removable roof over the two passengers in order to maintain structural rigidity. The detachable roof is expected to be glass, so it can't be stored inside the Veyron. But Bugatti engineers think of everything and they're planning to include a soft cloth roof for emergencies.

Autogespot reports that the topless Veyron will have to undergo some structural reinforcements that will tone down the car's performance just a touch. But top speed is still estimated at 217 mph, hardly a letdown.

Bugatti is planning to produce 80 open-top Veyrons.

$1.4 million, perhaps.

That looks pretty good, I think. But I'd hate to have the top down going that fast. I don't even have the windows down when I drive on the Interstate.
