There was wide spread news of Bugatti introducing an ultra-performance model based on the Veyron dubbed the Super Veyron. The information has now been denied by Bugatti President Wolfgang Schreiber, but insists that a Veyron replacement is in the pipeline.
Bugatti has completed deliveries of 390 examples of the Veyron from the promised 450 units. They have also rolled out infinite limited editions that include the recently launched Legends edition that featured at the recently concluded Pebbles Beach. While the current Veyron produced 1200bhp the alleged Super Veyron was rumoured to produce power in the range of 1600bhp. Through the figure looks a tad over ambitions, reports claim that it is the lack of peripheral technologies like tyres that curbed the progress of the Super Veyron.
Schreiber who does not support the conventional nomenclature of badging new versions as “successors”, arguing that the concept makes the predecessor look inferior, has assured that Bugatti is working on an apt replacement for the Veyron. It is possible that Bugatti will go for a hybrid option to improve the figures for the new model but Bugatti has opted to be hush about any such information for now. None the less bettering the Veyron is always going to be a daunting task even for its creators, and how much better the next model is going to be; only time will tell.
