Word has it Bugatti is preparing a final edition of its Veyron supercar. Rumored to have more than 1,500 under the bonnet, the Super Veyron will reportedly arrive next year with a top speed of at least 280 mph (450 km/h).
According to Autocar, the new vehicle is set to arrive with “dramatic weight-saving technologies”, which are said to to make it 440 lbs (200 kg) lighter than the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport (4,162 lbs/1,888 kg). As for the power, it will reach the 1,500 bhp figure by increasing the quad-turbo W16 engine’s capacity. The new supercar won’t benefit from a hybrid system.

“We are looking at several options. The reality is that we are not under time pressure because we are confident of selling out the full Veyron production run regardless. Only after that can we see if there is time and appetite for such a program. It would be expensive and time-consuming, so we must be sure it is worth it,” a Bugatti source told Autocar.

The new Bugatti Super Veyron will cost about about £5 million, which means €5.87 million and $7.69 million at current exchange rates.
