Next Bugatti Veyron plans to outdo predecessor's top speed

It looks like the next Bugatti Veyron is still a go for the VW Group. And word from Auto Express is that the next Veyron model will top out 434.52 km/h , the record top speed set by the current Veyron Super Sport.

Design-wise, the next Veyron will take some inspiration from the original Veyron concept by Walter de Silva, now head of design at VW Group. That design was never revealed to the public. The car pictured here is a design study by Canadian John Mark Vicente called the Bugatti Renaissance, posited as a Veyron successor.

Powering the next Veyron will still be the 8.0 liter W16 engine laden with four turbochargers, coupled to a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Output will also likely be similar to the current Super Sport - 1,200 bhp and 1,500 Nm of torque. The new Veyron will have a 0 to 100 km/h sprint time of around 2.5 seconds and slightly inch past the Super Sport's performance numbers by means of weight-saving measures.

Bugatti will be summoning the help of sister brand Lamborghini to keep the Veyron's weight to around 1,838 kg. It will use carbon-composite materials for its monocoque chassis and much of its cabin trim. The next Veyron will also come with thinner glass and lighter alloy wheels to reduce overall weight by about 100 kg over its predecessor.

The new Veyron will debut sometime in 2013 and will go on sale the following year with an expected price over £1 million. In the meantime, enjoy Top Gearís review of the current Veyron Super Sport below. It might just blow your mind away!

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
