In its decade long progression in the maker, since the first Veyron manufactured in 2005, the Supercar has been among the fastest car on the running face of this planet. Powered by an enormous 8.0-litre engine with 16-cylinders uncommonly placed in a W contour, the beast’s basic version itself churns a massive 1000.7 PS and 1250 Nm of torque, while the Super Sport iteration has an output of 1200 PS and a torque of 1500 Nm.
It is almost unimaginable how this exceptional supercar can touch 100 km/hr in just 2.46 seconds. In fact the Bugatti Veyron is the first car to have crushed the 400 km/hr barrier. The regular old version of the car could blow up to 407 km/hr and the racy Super Sport version can touch 415 km/hr.
As for it successor, though the makers have not yet disclosed much in detail, the CEO of Bugatti, Wolfgang Dürheimer revealed to CAR magazine that the next-gen car will likely be called the Chiron. This successor of Bugatti Veyron is expected to be lighter and may come with an engine that delivers an incredible 1500 PS, a 25 % stronger than the Veyron's top 1200 PS 8.0-liter W-16 beast.
So people have a lot to foresee whether the upcoming car lives up to the speed expected from a new Bugatti. The Bugatti Chiron is likely to be a hybrid like the recently launched Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918.
