Bugatti Veyron successor planned, to reach 460 km/h (286 mph) image

A replacement for the Bugatti Veyron is currently rumored to make its way onto the market in late 2015 or early 2016 and this should become, once more, the fastest production supercar money can buy.

The Bugatti Veyron has set new standards for hypercars over these past few years, since it was crowned the fastest production vehicle money can buy and now, after a long production run and with money lost at every unit sold, despite being quite expensive, the company is planning to introduce a successor of the impressive ride. According to some recent reports, the replacement for the Veyron should be introduced in late 2015 or early 2016 and is should become a hybrid supercar.

The model in question will be getting a W16 engine under its hood with direct injection and other tweaks to make it meet the Euro 6 emission standards so it means that the CO2 emissions and fuel consumption will be reduced. The unit should work together with disc shaped electric motor installed in the gearbox housing, along with a lithium-ion battery. The model should come with no less than 1,500 HP (1,103 kW) and with an electronically limited torque of 1,490 Nm (1,100 lb-ft). The design of the new Veyron will not be that different from the current model and it will be assembled in Molsheim, France.
