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.

Available in both dual-cab pick-up or SUV configurations, GMC claims the flagship models will produce a mammoth 735kW and 2033Nm.
