Although the Bordeaux is still the car most likely to be previewed at next month's Frankfurt Motor Show, Bugatti's top brass have reportedly said it is still uncertain as to whether or not this car will ever hit the show circuit - let alone production.
Whatever the case, Bugatti did say the next Bugatti model will not be based on the recently unveiled Bentley Mulsanne.
“A Bugatti saloon will have different dimensions and be a completely different concept. In fact it’s hard to find any similarities at all (with the new Bentley),” said Bugatti boss Dr. Franz-Josef Pfaegen. “A Bugatti is designed and developed for a total volume of not more than 150, so that allows completely different materials and technology.”
One thing's for sure no matter which form the next Bugatti takes, it will carry a seven-figure price tag to ensure the Bugatti brand is kept as the auto world's ultimate.
