There's so far been no flat-out denial.
A few days ago, we brought you a spy video of a mystery Bugatti Veyron caught testing at the Nurburgring. It looked strange because it had some sort of testing equipment above the engine. Could it be the Veyron successor? Today our spy photographers have caught this same test mule along with a second prototype out testing again. Upon closer examination, the white car’s aluminum setup above the engine could be gear used for chassis strengthening.
It could also potentially be a part of future engine mount. We already know the Veyron successor will weigh less and likely incorporate hybrid technology in order to help generate more power than the current car. The black test mule also shows something quite interesting: look closely and you’ll spot an extra hole cut in the rear bumper on the left side; there’s a now a radiator there. We spoke to a Bugatti rep at Geneva last month, asking for a potential launch date for the Veyron successor. They strongly hinted to us that we’ll be hearing some news within the next 18 months or so. Until then, these spy pics will have to suffice.
