Successor to the Bugatti Veyron is now in development.
While we recently reported Bugatti had confirmed it would not be building the Galibier or a Super Veyron, according to Auto Car, the French carmaker has now revealed it intends to launch a direct successor to the Veyron. Without mentioning specific details, VW Group chief Martin Winterkorn said that in place of the four-door Galibier “will be a second-generation Veyron with more power.”
Bugatti head Wolfgang Schreiber previously revealed that the next-gen Veyron would “redefine benchmarks” and that “the benchmark today is still the current Veyron.” Around 50 of the Veyron’s 450-unit run are left. Each will come with the 1,200-hp variant of the W16 quad-turbo engine, with production expected to end sometime in 2015.
