An even more extreme version of the 895kW, 431km/h Bugatti Veyron Super Sport has been rumoured for a 2014 release, as a final version of the hyper bug.

Believed to be 200kg lighter than the Super Sport, produce up to 1103kW of power (1500bhp) and be capable of hitting 450km/h, inside sources told Autocar the French company is eager to produce a version of the Bugatti that is “a fantasy in terms of its performance”.

“We are looking at several options,” the source revealed.

“The reality is that we are not under time pressure because we are confident of selling out the full Veyron production run regardless.

“Only after that can we see if there is time and appetite for such a program. It would be expensive and time-consuming, so we must be sure it is worth it.”

The Bugatti hypercar is expected to feature a high proportion of carbonfibre in its construction in a bid to reduce the base Veyron Super Sport‘s 1888kg mass, and use a revised version of its quad-turbo 8.0-litre W16 engine with an increase in capacity.

While the rumoured car would have to tackle both physics and tyre technology to continue Bugatti’s trend of record setting, owners who can afford the suggested $8.3 million asking price would surely be keen to try.

    Because they can.

    Already an amazing car and IMO one of the best engineering efforts for a car in history would be even more amazing with 1100 kw!!! its such a great effort the veyron SS because it can go to 100 in less than 2.5 seconds, reach 431 kph, but it has airbags, all safety electronics, automatic dual clutch tranny and a proper luxury interior! it can also be driven fast by anyone!

      The Veyron Gransport Vitesse is nice, but to be honest – the Pagani Huayra is a more surreal experience and with a much better interior, and the latest generation 918/LaFerrari/P1 will obliterate the Veyrons and Ageras on a race track. The McLaren will probably be nicer to drive on average roads too.

    Just wondering.. How much it would cost to hire this hyper car for even a day.. I hope it won’t be more than my six months salary

    • Josh K

      €19000 Euros a day. Plenty of hire services in Monaco

      • Dreamer

        €19000 euros. It’s just ridiculous. That’s my 9 months salary n to actually save €19000 it would take me 5years n in 5years time they would b building some supersonic car. Wots the point. when for just $35 you can buy beer Goggles and can see an hyundai excel turning into a bugatti veryon n guess what I’m seeing one parked in my driveway

    I supposed this had to come because the Agera R gives the current Veyron a whooping.

    • guest

      You mean the Agera S Hundra – at Koenigsegg’s own airport runway with Robert Serwanksi (Koenigsegg test driver) at the wheel of it.

      This super-Veyron was leaked last year by an anonymous source – who also leaked the details of the Veyron Supersport, so this is a high probability of going into production.

      • jhgk

        Yep, it was that Agera that gave the Veyron the whooping.

        • Sumpguard

          Dreaming of course but if I had the choice the Koenigsegg would be my choice. I love that car.

      • Hung Low

        Yes, the difference was huge and surprising

        • guest

          That’s hardly surprising – it is what happens when you have a big power to weight ratio. Veyron (a standard 1001hp version) is very much worse compared with the Agera S Hundra (a one off). The standard Veyron didn’t even match the old McLaren F1’s power to weight ratio, despite the 1001hp against 627hp, and the Veyron would probably struggle to match the 1995 F1 GTR (some of which are now road-legal).

          The Veyron is simply far too heavy. Hence why they need so much power and torque to move it along. And then it needs a huge gearbox to cope.. So it all adds up.

    Weldone idiots! I wish you to build a car with 1100kW, and maybe more powerful version with 5000kW so can lunch it to the moon, there’s always some greedy Arab from UAE that wants to go to the moon by car.

    By the way, find me please a road in whole planet where you can go up to 431km/h and I will take out my eyeballs and eat them.


      The Autbahn in Germany. 52% of it, as of 2008, is completely unrestricted. You can literally go as fast as you like. Time to eat those eyeballs.

      • Phil

        You can go as fast as the traffic will allow. If you’ve ever been there, you’ll know how much traffic there is. And roadworks. And unsympathetic police who take a dim view of any behaviour they deem as dangerous, and treating the autobahn as your private racetrack fits that bill.
