Next-generation Bugatti supercar will hit 60 mph in just 1.8 seconds

Article by Christian A., on November 19, 2012

Bugatti is working on the next super-sports car, according to chief vehicle engineer Jens Schulenburg when interviewed by AutoExpress. He said that the biggest hurdle would be to cut the weight so they’re considering some technologies like wheels that are built from carbonfiber totally. Bugatti is also studying the possibility of hybrids.

It is rumored that the car could have an output of 1,600hp, a maximum speed of 290mph, and a 0-60mph acceleration time of 1.8 seconds. It may make sense to install a hybrid system. Notably, Porsche would depend heavily on a hybrid for its upcoming 918 Spyder supercar. The problem is that hybrid drivetrains are heavy.

Bugatti has more factors to consider than just putting in a big engine. An ordinary sports car won’t be able to carry an 8.0-liter, quad-turbo W16 engine and these improvements make the vehicle much heavier. Since the engine is big, it occupies more volume – about 9.6 liters in total. It’s possible that this car will debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show but nothing is sure at this point yet.
