Bugatti has released photos from an exclusive track day event at the Paul Ricard Circuit.

Described as a unique experience for the company's "dearest friends," the track day allowed participants to drive the Grand Sport Vitesse under the watchful eye of Bugatti test driver Pierre-Henri Raphanel. Featuring a quad-turbocharged W16 engine that develops 1,200 HP (883 kW) and 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft) of torque, the Grand Sport Vitesse rockets from 0-100 km/h in 2.6 seconds and has a top speed of 410 km/h (255 mph).

Bugatti also brought along three Grand Sports which have a slightly more modest output of 1001 HP (736 kW) and 1250 Nm (922 lb-ft) of torque.
