A few things are clear in the pictures: the new-generation car, likely to launch at the Los Angeles motor show, will have a more upright snout than the car it replaces, and it appears to have grown broader through the hips.

While the name isn't officially confirmed, the publication speculates this new model could be known as the Chiron Super Sport, likely to be made in very limited numbers.
