Bugatti Ditches Plans of Super Veyron, but Says Replacement on the Way

Jeff Perez

We reported just about a month ago on the nose that Bugatti had dished out plans for an even more powerful, Super Veyron to succeed the current model. And while reports were a bit sketchy, it called for an insane 1,500-hp, a 0-60 mph time of just about 1.8 seconds and a $6.5M price tag.

Now, talking to Autoblog at this past weekend’s Pebble Concours in California, Bugatti say that they’ve ditched any plans of a Super Veyron, but are rather focusing their efforts on something entirely different.

As the current Veyron is set to stretch into the 2015 model year, Bugatti President Dr. Wolfgang Schreiber told of a “replacement” to the current Veyron to follow suit. This offers up a host of speculation, but nothing actionable.

So, no word yet on what exactly we can expect, but there’s bound to be all sorts of outlandish predictions. Let us know what you think the Veyron replacement should entail in the comments below.
