It’s been confirmed that Bugatti are to build the Bugatti Veyron SuperSport. Just 30 being built with 1200 horses on tap, 300kg lighter and €1,650,000 (+tax) to buy.
We’ve been here before with rumours of a lighter and more powerful Bugatti Veyron. In fact the rumours have been around almost as long as the Veyron itself. And they resurface at regular intervals. So when we saw the rumours earlier this week we thought it was probably more of the same – a slow news day for someone so ‘Let’s run a Veyron Story’. And then we got a phone call.
“Have you heard about the new 1200bhp Veyron Supersport?” said the familiar voice. “It’s just the same old rumour, sunshine” we retorted. “Then why am I about to transfer €400k to Bugatti?” came the reply. So it’s not a rumour – it’s real.
There are going to be 30 Bugatti Veyron SuperSport. They will shed in the region of 300kg with liberal use of carbon fibre, get 1200 horses and each will cost their owners €1,650,000. There are exterior styling changes but Bugatti aren’t sending out photos – even to buyers – at this stage.
Bugatti were hoping to have the Veyron Supersport ready for Goodwood this year, but that’s not going to happen. The aim now is to show the new Veyron at Pebble Beach in August. But Bugatti aren’t the best in the world at keeping to delivery dates so it could even take until Paris before the world sees the SuperSport.
The Veyron SuperSport will be the last iteration of the Veyron. Probably.
