Rumors about Bugatti developing a successor for the Veyron have been floating around the web for quite a while but now it is official, as the carmaker’s chief vehicle engineer Jens Schulenburg has confirmed this.
The Veyron has always been about the latest advances in technology more than anything else and this is what we have to expect from the second generation of the car.

The engineer told Auto Express that the carmaker is looking to integrate the tech goodies of tomorrow into the car, mentioning full carbon fiber wheels, which would reduce unsprung and overall mass, thus enhancing handling, comfort and efficiency. He also explained that Bugatti is considering a hybrid powerplant for the car.

Of course, such technologies have already been implemented on production cars (or tuned vehicles, in the case of carbon fiber wheels), but Bugatti has to make them mix with the notions of high performance and reliability, so, as usual, the company has quite a challenge to face.

The new Veyron is expected to come to the market after Bugatti released the Galibier sedan, which is set to enter production in 2014 or 2015.
