The list of hybrid supercars is growing, and Bugatti might be the next company to jump on the bandwagon with a hybrid variant of the upcoming Veyron successor.

Acura has the new NSX, Ferrari is developing an Enzo successor with regenerative braking, and now the CEO of Bugatti has revealed that the company is looking into hybrid technology.

“The big challenge on the next car will be reducing weight – we are looking at some incredible technologies, such as wheels made entirely from carbon fibre. Hybrids are definitely something we’re looking at, too,” said Bugatti’s chief vehicle engineer, Jens Schulenburg.

If weight reduction can be accomplished on other parts of the car, the hybrid setup could push the Veyron to a new top speed limit, surpassing the 268 mph of the Veyron Super Sport.
