Fastest roadster ever. That's one heck of a claim, but if anyone can assert it, it's Bugatti. And the Alsatian automaker has brought 1,200 horsepower to back it up.

What we're talking about, of course, is the Vitesse - the "best of both worlds" version of the famed Veyron. First announced in February and officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show last week, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse (as it's known in full) has just had its full details released along with a fresh batch of rather fetching high-resolution images, which we've included in our gallery for your viewing pleasure.

So what are we looking at here, exactly? In short, a Grand Sport (that's the targa-topped model) with the engine from the Super Sport (the record-holding top-speed model). That means a quad-turbo W-16 engine with 1,200 horsepower, good for a 255 mph top speed with the wind in your hair.
