2014 Bugatti SuperVeyron
Stop dreaming a few rumored approaching Super Veyron, reportedly along with 1, 600 horsepower and also a 0-60 sprint of 1. 8 seconds, because it can never materialize despite numerous reports towards the contrary. Which is that the official phrase from Bugatti President Dr. Wolfgang Schreiber, who sat down along with us in Pebble Beach this past weekend to extinguish the actual gossip and discuss the actual future from the supercar.
As you’ll remember, Bugatti has promised a total production operate of simply 450 Veyrons. To day, they’ve delivered concerning 390 vehicles, as well as numerous special edition designs such as the recent Legends designs which debuted in Monterey. Whilst early cars created 1, 001 horsepower (such as the Veyron 16. 4 Grand Sport, pictured higher than, that we photographed throughout our evaluation), all the remaining production – anticipated to last till 2015 – will certainly be fitted using the 1, 200 horsepower version from the quad-turbocharged W16 powerplant that could push it to 254 mph. Despite a slew of restricted edition designs, there will certainly be no additional engine enhancements.
Jens Schulenburg, Bugatti’s chief vehicle engineer, recently told Autocar about the challenges of building what is essentially the ultimate Veyron. “The big challenge will be reducing weight, Schulenburg said. “We are looking at some incredible technologies, such as wheels made entirely from carbon fiber. We’re considering hybrids, too.”
Bugatti is looking at shaving almost 550 pounds off of the Veyron Super Sport’s body while developing the SuperVeyron. We also expect Bugatti to bore out its existing 8.0-liter W-16 engine to a 9.6-liter displacement, which will help bump the SuperVeyron’s output to 1,600 horsepower. These extra ponies will net the newest Veyron a 1.8-second 0-to-60 mph time and a top speed that’s expected to reach 288 mph.
Should the SuperVeyron live up to the growing hype it’s been generating, a lot of people could end up forgetting that the Galibier even exists. At least until Bugatti decides to release that model.
