Just a few days ago we reported that Bugatti had sent out invitations to a select few individuals for a party it will be hosting at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September. On the invitation there was a grainy photo of what was presumed to be a new model from the company. A new Bugatti at Frankfurt only makes sense as 2009 marks the automakers centennial.
Now, Bugatti has released an “official” teaser image, showing, well… your guess is as good as ours.
The dark back-shot shows very little but does give one very big hint to what sort of powerplant will be under the hood. Judging from the eight exhaust pipes, it will most likely be the same quad-turbocharged W16 engine as found in the Veyron. Otherwise the taillights don’t give much clue to what sort of vehicle the new Bugatti will be. Perhaps a luxury sedan?
When it is unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show, the new Bugatti, which is rumored to be called the Bordeaux, will most likely be a concept, with a production version to follow shortly thereafter.
