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.
