Rumour has it Bugatti is thinking of making a Bugatti Veyron successor with even more power and more speed. The new model will also feature an all-new body said to be inspired by the original Bugatti Veyron concept of 1999. This concept was designed by the current head of Bugatti design, Walter de Silva – former SEAT head of design.
The new car will have a top speed of 434km/h… in case the first edition wasn’t fast enough with its 408km/h top speed. The engine will be based on the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport’s 8.0-litre quad-turbo W16 motor, showcasing around 895kW of power and 1500Nm of torque.
Reports also say the next-generation Bugatti Veyron will be lighter than the current model, featuring more carbon fibre composite structures, thinner glass and lighter wheels which will help bring down the car’s overall weight by around 100kg; all helping the car achieve 0-100km/h in under 2.5 seconds.
Since its launch in 2005, around 304 Bugatti Veyrons have been sold. The sales figure is deemed high enough to prompt a second generation by the sounds of it.
The new Bugatti Veyron will supposedly debut in 2013 and then go on sale some time in 2014.
