The Third Annual, Vail Automotive Classic Wheels & Wings Show on Saturday, September 8th, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Vail Valley Jet Center will feature a Bugatti Veyron, Grand Sport, one of the most powerful and impressive supercars out there.

Touting 0 to 60 miles/hr in 2.5 seconds, the Bugatti Supercar is on a par with modern Formula 1 racecars and reaches a top speed of 250 miles/hr… all with a convertible top and aerodynamic system that adjusts to the speed.
