Bugatti Veyron Super Sport successor confirmed for Frankfurt debut

Bugatti has recently announced its plans to introduce the successor of the impressive Veyron Super Sport during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

According to the car manufacturer, the company’s main priority in developing the successor of the Veyron Super Sport will be to focus on the vehicle’s curb weight which should drop by 250 kg (551 lbs) and in order to help save this weight, Bugatti might consider some carbon fiber wheels. The announcement has been made by the Bugatti chief vehicle engineer, Jens Schulenburg, in an interview with Auto Express.

Probably one of the most significant changes which will be applied to the successor of the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport will be a hybrid technology, which is currently being analyzed. The W16 quad turbo engine is expected to get a larger displacement, from 8.0 liters to 9.6 liters and, with the help of an electric motor, the hypercar should produce a total output of 1,600 HP (1,177 kW), which should allow the model to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) faster than motorcycles, in a whopping 1.8 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 446,7 km/h (290 mph).
