Bugatti Veyron Successor to Hit 286 MPH

And output? Try 1,479 horsepower.

The highly anticipated Bugatti Veyron successor will likely be unveiled sometime in 2016. The world is very much waiting. Until then, more and more specific details are beginning to come out indicating that this next Bugatti is going to be absolutely mind boggling. Autocar is claiming the yet-unnamed Veyron successor will be powered by an updated version of the 8.0-liter W16, only this time it’ll incorporate hybrid technology.

Total output will be a ridiculous 1,479 horsepower. A Volkswagen Group official stated that the car will have "the fastest top speed of any series-production road car, together with the sort of drivability to allow you to use it every day." VW obviously isn’t too keen to reveal too much just yet partly because it’s still taking orders for the Veyron. However, testing on the Veyron successor has already begun. There are supposedly "five developmental prototypes with differing powertrain combinations. They are based on the existing car but use various solutions that are being considered for the new model." We also know the car will feature a carbon-fiber monocoque. Seating will once again be for two with plenty of high-tech features.
