As rumored earlier this year, the convertible version of the Veyron will have a roof similar to the Porsche targa, or a removable hardtop accompanied by a soft-top alternative. WorldCarFans.com has this computer generated image of what the car may look like.

At speeds well over 200 mph, just remember to wear a baseball cap, ladies.

And in case you were wondering, a "sybarite" is someone who prefers the finer earthly delights. The word originally referred to a person from the Italian town of Sybaris.
