Bugatti Veyron Successor Already In The Works - Could Be A Hybrid

The Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 was first introduced in 2005 and the Veyron Super Sport is still the fastest street-legal production car in the world, with a top speed of 268mph. The last 16.4 was sold in September 2011 and currently the Grand Sport and Super Sport are in production.

To stay competitive and fresh the Veyron needs a replacement very soon. Bugatti has confirmed that they are already working on a successor to the Veyron, that will likely keep its name. Veyron successor could be a hybrid, it will be lighter and of course faster.

Bugatti’s chief vehicle engineer, Jens Schulenburg, said in an interview to Auto Express: “The big challenge on the next car will be reducing weight – we are looking at some incredible technologies, such as wheels made entirely from carbon fibre. Hybrids are definitely something we’re looking at, too,”

Veyron successor is expected to debut in 2014/2015 – shortly after the four-door Galibier saloon goes into production.
