Bugatti confirms next-generation Veyron with more power

There are less than 50 Bugatti Veyrons available out of a total planned production run of 450 units.

The future of the Veyron has been uncertain and there have been rumours about a final ‘Super Veyron’ with around 1500bhp and a 280mph top speed. The Super Veyron won’t happen and also the four-door Galibier has been axed.

Volkswagen Group chief Martin Winterkorn, told Autocar that instead of a Galibier will be a second-generation Veyron with more power.

New model is reportedly already in development and as confirmed earlier will “redefine the benchmarks” set by the outgoing model, and “all the next Veyron has to worry about is… the current one.”

Current top of the range Veyron Super Sport packs an impressive 1187bhp and is the world’s fastest production car.

Engine specs are purely speculative, but around 1500bhp is likely and some sources are also talking about a hybrid engine.
