We get tired of set up shots and studio shots at AutoSpies really quick. That's because everyone has them!

Agent 001 attended the Volkswagen Group event this evening and was able to snap some astonishing shots BEFORE the 2012 Geneva Motor Show even begins.

That said, there is one vehicle that just about trumps all. That, my friends, is the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. To keep this simple, I'll explain it this way: Bugatti implanted the Super Sport's 1200 horsepower motor into the Veyron without a roof.

Thus, you have the creation of what is simply the fastest drop-top -- that I know of -- on the planet.

Bugatti's press release follows:

Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse celebrates world premiere in Geneva

Molsheim/France, 22 February 2012 – Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. is set to unveil the most powerful roadster of all time at the 82nd International Geneva Motor Show at the beginning of

With an increase in power up to 1,200 HP, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse has
entered a new dimension of open-top driving. Optically aligned to the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, which holds the current world speed record of 431 km/h, the Vitesse also impresses with its dynamic driving characteristics.

Bugatti's engineers have developed the current Grand Sport, with its 1,001 HP and 1,250 Nm, into an even more powerful vehicle. The Vitesse's maximum torque is now an impressive 1,500 Nm. The increased power of the new roadster's 16-cylinder engine is made possible by the four enlarged turbochargers and intercoolers. The chassis has also been modified to support the power increase.

The Vitesse therefore also ensures the supreme range of excellent features one would expect of a
Bugatti super sports car, from precise driving dynamics to extraordinary acceleration and braking.

"The rapid success of the Super Sport convinced us to increase the performance of the Bugatti
roadster. Once again our engineers worked hard to demonstrate that Bugatti is able to constantly
redefine the boundaries of what is technically feasible," reveals Bugatti President Wolfgang
Dürheimer. "We gave our all to transfer the achievements of the Super Sport over to the Grand
Sport, thereby turning open-top driving itself into an extraordinary experience at high speed."
