Next-year, many of the world’s best supercar makers will launch some extreme supercars. McLaren will have its successor to the F1 known as the P1 and Ferrari will have its successor to the Enzo.
Hoping to not be overlooked, Bugatti is apparently looking to create a very crazy version of the Veyron.
According to a report on British publication Auto Express, Bugatti will launch an extreme version of the Veyron at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show in September-2013. It will essentially be a Veyron Super Sport on steroids pushing some 1,600bhp. That could allow the car to hit 0 to 100kph in 1.8 seconds and hit a top speed of an eye-wattering 290 mph (464 kmph).
All that will be made possible by the crazy work done by Bugatti engineers and a weight reduction on the Super Sport of around 250kg. Although the same quad-turbo W16 engine will be used, the capacity could be increased from 8.0 to 9.6 litres in order to liberate more power. Also, there might be an electric motor employed to provide the extra power.
“We are working on the next super-sports car. The big challenge will be reducing weight – we are looking at some incredible technologies, such as wheels made entirely from carbon fibre. We’re considering hybrids, too” said Bugatti’s chief vehicle engineer Jens Schulenburg to AutoExpress.
