Bugatti teases "latest example of exceptional Bugatti performance"

The stage is set.
It’s almost time for us to share the latest example of exceptional Bugatti performance, simply keep a close eye on Facebook over the next few days.

Very likely this is a teaser for the rumoured 1600 horsepower Veyron Super.

As we reported already last year, the Super Veyron is expected to debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show with an upgraded 8.0- or 9.6-litre engine that produces an impressive 1,600 horsepower.

Thanks to extensive use of carbon fibre it will be lighter than the 1200 hp Veyron Super Sport, enabling it to hit 62mph in less than 2.0 seconds, while the top speed is reportedly 288mph (463km/h).

The Veyron Super Sport recently lost its title for the World’s Fastest Car not to a competitor, but the Guinness World Records decided to strip Bugatti of the title after discovering that the car used to set the record 267.8mph was different from the 30 limited edition production cars, which all have a speed restrictor.
