If you thought that you’ve seen the last of the Bugatti Veyron range, think again.

The French power house is reportedly set to launch a final, somewhat outrageous 1,500 horsepower Veyron that sources claim to be a “ fantasy in terms of its performance” early next year. 

Unfortunately for us however, Bugatti is in no rush to get the model production ready, so we will have to wait patiently to be blown away.

The new Veyron is supposed to be the ‘ultimate’ ultimate Veyron. The current ultimate Veyron, the Super Sport, will have to take second place if reports of the performance specs and tecnology of the new Veyron is to be true.

The new Bugatti will introduce more weight saving technologies,  more specifically the use of carbon fiber, in an effort to drop about 200kg off the Super Sport’s kerb weight of 1888kg.

It is also expected that we will see a significant and rather dramatic power increase. Bugatti reportedly plans to increase the current Super Sport’s horsepower of 1184, to 1500 horsepower. Now that aims to be one powerful car!

Luckily it doesn’t seem that Bugatti has any intention of using an electric boost system. The new Veyron’s top speed will most likely be around an impressive 450km/h! This is and increase of 20km/h on the Super Sport’s 430km/h.

However, that new top speed will only be possible once the necessary tire technology is available. Which we do hope coincides with the launch of the new ultimate Bugatti.

The new voluptuous Veyron is expected to sell for around $7.7 million, or round about R77 million. It’s price tag definitely ensures that this will be a highly exclusive vehicle!
