Porsche increases stake in Rimac, opens door for Bugatti takeover

Volkswagen Group subsidiary Porsche has increased its stake in Croatian brand Rimac Automobili, opening the door for a long-rumoured takeover at Bugatti. Last year CarAdvice reported an alleged agreement between the two companies could see Porsche incrementally increase its stake in Rimac to as much as 49 per cent by mid-2021. In return, Rimac would acquire the Bugatti name from the Volkswagen Group without money swapping hands.

UPDATE – Bugatti seemingly confirms W16 engine for newest hypercar

UPDATE 28/10/20: The newest teaser images from Bugatti suggest the upcoming model will be powered by the brand's W16 internal combustion engine, leaving us to once again ponder what the cryptic "0,67" might mean. In the Veyron this engine develops 736kW, while the updated Chiron variant produces 1103kW. It is possible the new model – slated for launch later today – will be offered with multiple powertrains options, however the limited production run makes this unlikely.

World’s fastest car: Bugatti Veyron for sale $2.2 million

An immaculate low-kilometre example of the Bugatti Veyron – once the world’s fastest car – is for sale in the UK for £1.2 million, or $AUD 2.2 million, which is not far off what it cost new, despite being 13 years old. The 2007 model is one of just 450 examples built from 2005 to 2015, and has just 828 miles (or 1332km) on the odometer. It is powered by a mammoth quad turbo 8.0-litre W16 engine (two V8s mounted back to back) with an output of 1001 horsepower (746kW) and 1250Nm of torque.

Bugatti chief rules out platform sharing and hybrid drivetrains

Stephan Winkelmann, CEO of Bugatti, has laid out his thinking for a second model, what might power it, and how it will affect the brand's exclusivity. He told Autocar any second model for the Bugatti range would be a car "to be used on a daily basis" and not "only for weekends". It has long been speculated the company is keen to add a high-performance crossover or four-door grand tourer to its lineup.
