New 270 mph veyron

NEW VEYRON
gets extra bite

Next version will be faster and lighter than ever

This is the new veyron. sorry about picture this car is so new no website has pic or info only auto express. (if anyone has any pictures please post them)

autoexpress201101222.jpg bugatti_veyron_f34_ns_11411_717.jpg

Bugatti is keen to keep the Veyron's instantly recognisable silhouette intact. The next model could take its inspiration from a design proposal for the original Veyron.

Bugatti is likely to stick with the same engine as the old Veyron. power output will at least match the super Sport's 1,200 bhp and 1,500 Nm of torque. but performance will take a big leap forwards. 0-60 time of less than 2.5 sec and new record-setting 270 mph made possible by saving weight; tipping the scales at 1,838 Kg, the new Veyron wil make use of another VW own manufacturer's, Lamborghini, is quickly becoming a carbon-composite expert. we'll see the newcomer for the first time in 2013, before it goes on sale for 1 million.

i will post more info when i get it

infomation from auto express

another effort to ensure that also the 50 last cars of the planned production of 300 will be sold?

300 will be the final number, and they would never had achieved that if they had not come up with all sorts of derivatives.

Its crazy to think VAG will consider keeping an expensive, money burning effort running just for the sake of a successor. Unless I suppose the sedan that they are making turn out to be a success...

Veyron Vol. 2 will never have the impact of the original. No matter how big the figures are.

The story is from Auto Express.

I would say it lacks credibility.

Auto Express/Autobild/etc are known for bullshit.

Does it even matter? The Veyron is as relevant to most normal people's lives as Lady Gaga.

On that basis, most cars are.

No, the average Joe or Jane purchased their family truckster because they ARE relevant to their daily lives. Transportation plus what status and style they can afford. Cars like the Veyron don't appear on most people's radar, but recall notices or thrifty affordable hybrids do.

That's exactly what I was on about.

All 2 seaters, all high performance variants and even most of the non-base cars are as irrelevant as they Veyron to most people, regardless of their ability or wheter they are interesting or not.

Now, I don't like they Veyron, and I don't like its aproach either. But I reckon that as an engineering achievement, what it did is quite amazing. So kudos for that.
