Bugatti Veyron hybrid successor rumored again, could debut in 2015

Article by Andrew Christian, on July 10, 2014

The rumor about a hybrid successor to the Bugatti Veyron is not quite something new but it appears that this model might become reality. According to Reuters, two sources with knowledge of the matter said that Bugatti is considering such as vehicle and if built, it will be much faster than the current Veyron Super Sport capable to achieve a top speed of 431 km/h or 268 mph.

For those who don’t know, earlier this year Bugatti’s Veyron Super Sport lost the title of world’s fastest production car in favor of the Hennessey Venom GT after achieving a top speed of 270.49 mph or 435 km/h.

According to same sources, the Bugatti Veyron successor will be a two-door model and use a 16-cylinder engine that will generate around 1,500 hp. Just like the Veyron, Bugatti will limit the production to 450 cars.

Apparently, Bugatti already developed the blueprint for a 2015 model. A Bugatti spokesman said that the new successor will not be less exciting than the Veyron as company’s customers have certain expectations.

Ferrari already rolled off the LaFerrari hybrid supercar, while Mclaren offers the P1 and Porsche the 918 Spyder. This means that it is time for Bugatti to get to the next level with a hybrid hypercar. Still, we are eager to see a concept version of the new vehicle or at least a sketch in order to be sure that the new vehicle is really coming!
