Bugatti are teasing the ‘Latest example of exceptional Bugatti performance’ on their Facebook page. Could this be a new ‘Super’ Veyron.
Following their world speed record in 2010 for the Veyron Super Sport, Guinness has decided that as the production version of the Super Sport has a limiter fitted to stop the speed exceeding 258mph, it cannot keep its ‘World’s fastest production car’ record. So they’ve cancelled it.
But as we said when we reported that the Veyron Super Sport’s world speed record title had been cancelled by Guinness, we couldn’t see Bugatti waiting long before they did something to make sure the billions of Euros they’ve invested in the Veyron weren’t for nothing.
We’d expected an announcement that all Veyron Super Sport cars were having their limiters removed with immediate effect, but it seems Bugatti may have something more up its corporate sleeve.
An image has turned up on Bugatti’s Facebook page this morning (above) with a very short statement attached:
It’s almost time for us to share the latest example of exceptional Bugatti performance, simply keep a close eye on Facebook over the next few days.
Bugatti has been quiet of late with anything other than more (cosmetically) ‘Special’ Veyron models, so this could be news on the Bugatti Galibier which could get 1400hp. Or it could be the rumoured (but seemingly fantasy land) Super Veyron with something around 1600hp and a 0-62mph in under 2 seconds.
But whatever it is, it looks like we’ll know more in the next few days.
