Bugatti’s next model has made an appearance on the Internet.
The successor to the Veyron, rumored to be called the Chiron, was caught on film by Auto Bild TV and not just one, but two prototypes were on the streets. Joining the two Bugatti Chiron prototypes were a Veyron Super Sport, a Lamborghini Huracan and a BMW i8.
We mostly get a glimpse of the rear of the Chiron prototype, which has much more aggressive styling than the Veyron, but it does appear that the French automaker is still using the Veyron as a mule.
Little is known about Bugatti’s next car, but rumor has it that it will be able to go from 0-60 mph in two seconds and will have a top speed of 288 mph. The company will likely use the same quad-turbo W16 engine found in the Veyron but expect it to be fine tuned for even more performance with, perhaps, the addition of a hybrid powertrain.
