When the project Veyron was first born, Bugatti had set a difficult goal to achieve in the hypercar series of the faster and more powerful than ever, able to break all records for speed and acceleration made up to that point. Despite the difficult gestation of the car, dotted with many technical problems, the end result was exciting and all the goals were largely achieved thanks to the powerful 8.0-liter W16 with four turbo and able to give out 1001 hp, that became 1,200 hp at a later time in the Super Sport version, with the latter capable of reaching a top speed of 431 km / h.
With the passage of time, the competition has become increasingly fierce and the numerous records achieved by the Veyron have been exceeded. Now, however, the men of the Franco-German House seem to have returned to the office and according to the latest rumors, would be working on a new version of the Veyron that is even more extreme, one that can beat any formidable opponent.
Compared to the Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, the new variant will use even larger fiber carbon and composite materials in order to further reduce the mass of the car for 200 kg, with the aim to keep the weight within the 1,688 kg. The decrease in the weight of the car will be accompanied by a substantial upgrading of the W16 quad-turbo engine that will increase its capacity from the current 1,200 hp, up to a higher level of 1,500 hp. The increase of the power will be obtained by intervening on the electronics management and on that of supercharging, while it seems that the addition of an electric unit will be definitively excluded, as used by other recent super sports, such as Ferrari LAFerrari , Porsche 918 Spyder and McLaren P1.
With such a power reserve, performances never seen before on a sports car approved for circular road are to be expected, which could result in a top speed of over 450 km / h, although the latter may be influenced by the technological limits of the tires. The list price of this special Veyron will be worthy of its incredible performance: as of now, a cost of approximately € 5 million is estimated, which obviously does not include the numerous and expensive customizations which can boast the opulent and exaggerated Molsheim Sports House.
