According to Britain’s TopGear magazine, head of VW Group Walter de Silva has just confirmed that a new Bugatti model on its way, ready to hit the market at the end of 2015 or early 2016. Bugatti engineers are working hard on the new model, which will not be a Veyron replacement.

De Silva says that it will be more than a Veyron replacement, but they are currently investigating all avenues. Few different concepts are developed at the moment and engineers pay a lot of attention in the technology for the new model.

Asked if the new model will be a production version of the Galibier, Dr. Wolfgang Schreiber said that Bugatti will not offer such a model because it will confuse customers.

The Veyron was on top of all super sportscar brand in the world and everyone knows it as the ultimate super sports car. Bugatti also promised that the new car will redefine the benchmarks… again, just like the Veyron did when it was launched back in 2005.

The most powerful version of the Veyron was the Super Sport, which used the well-known 8.0-liter W16 engine that developed 1,200 hp and a maximum torque of 1,500 Nm.

This model had a limited top speed of 415 km/h or 257 mph, in order to protect its tires. For those who don’t know, the Veyron Super Sport had a World Record Edition, a model that managed to achieve a top speed of 431 km/h (267 mph).
