The next model of Bugatti Veyron will offer a top speed of 270 mph. This is said to be at the helm of the record top speed set by the current model Veyron Super Sport.
The forthcoming model will feature different look, adapting certain inspired features from the original Veyron concept. 8.0 liter W16 engine laden with four turbochargers coupled to a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox will power the vehicle. It will yield an output of 1,200 bhp (895 kW / 1217 PS) and 1,500 Nm of torque, similar to that of the current model Veyron.
The new Veyron will have a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time of around 2.5 seconds and slightly inch past the Super Sport’s performance numbers by means of weight-saving measures. The vehicle will incorporate thinner glass and lighter alloy wheels to reduce overall weight by about 100 kg (220 lbs) as compared to its predecessor.
The new Veyron with a price tag of over £1 million (€1.2 million), is to debut sometime in 2013 and will go on sale in 2014.
