Bugatti might fill a gap between producing the Veyron and manufacturing its successor with a special version of the outgoing ultra-luxury supercar.
According to a report by Automobile Magazine’s Georg Kacher, the Veyron successor – currently being reported on in the media as the Chiron – will be delayed until 2016. In the interim, his story suggests that Bugatti will build a very limited number of Speedsters based on the current car to “keep the workforce busy.”
The Chiron is rumored to pack 1,500 hp with the ability to launch from 0-60 MPH in only 2.5 seconds thanks in part to electric turbochargers fastened to an 8.0-liter W16 engine.
Kacher’s report didn’t offer specific details about how Bugatti would achieve the speedster body style and, of course, the company has not officially confirmed plans for the especially exclusive model.
