The successor of the iconic Bugatti Veyron has been spied on the famous German track, the Nurburgring, while it was being tested out.
There is no surprise anymore that Bugatti is currently working on a successor of the Veyron because the final edition of the model has been presented in Geneva, last month, and the company has already announced its production stop. The successor of the iconic hypercar has been caught on the Nurburgring recently, where it was being tested, hiding underneath a familiar body of the current model. Keep in mind that this is nothing more than a simple prototype and the final production model will be different.
The brand new hypercar has a pretty good chance of becoming a megacar, meaning that it will be coming with more than 1,341 HP (986 kW) and this means that it will be way more powerful than one of its main rivals, made by Koenigsegg. Rumor has it that this will be called the Chiron, after a concept car from the ‘90s, and it is believed to retain its 8.0 liter quad turbo engine, but the power will be bumped from 1,200 HP (882 kW) for the Super Sport to an impressive 1,500 HP (1,103 kW) and 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft) of torque. The model is expected to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.5 seconds and its speedometer is expected to indicate no less than 500 km/h (310,7 mph). However, don’t expect it to hit that top speed.
