Bugatti Super Veyron to Hit 463km/h?

Bugatti Veyron Supersports at the Nurburgring Nordschleife

When VW introduced the Bugatti Veyron in 2005, it held the record for the fastest street legal car at 408km/h; the record would later get broken by its successor the Veyron Super Sport at a comfortable 431km/h. CAR Magazine has now uncovered fresh details regarding the upcoming Bugatti Super Veyron, which is set to hit a top speed of 288mph or 463km/h.

Other details include its 0-60mph time which is 1.8 seconds and an even richer utilization of carbon fiber. Set to debut at the 2013 IAA Motor Show, the Super Veyron will feature enhanced quad-turbo setup in the W16 engine and a possibility of a 9.6 liters displacement. The powerhouse will then develop a total of 1,600bhp.

If the above details come true, the Super Veyron will not only go faster than a Formula One race car but will also smoke out other cars such as the upcoming Ferrari Enzo replacement and McLaren P1.

    love or loath the looks of it, this is brilliant engineering! I doubt the bhp numbers, 1300 + 160 (KERS) sounds more realistic.

    What would happen if Bugatti would build an F1 car?

    Totally agree!

    There´s nothing that can be compared to the Veyron, Bugatti just built kinda the king of cars!
    So excited about the story to continue and the Veyron to keep the supercar crown…

    Thank you Mr. Megalomaniac Piech ;-)
