The next model of Bugatti Veyron will offer a top speed of 270 mph. This is said to be at the helm of the record top speed set by the current model Veyron Super Sport.

The forthcoming model will feature different look, adapting certain inspired features from the original Veyron concept. 8.0 liter W16 engine laden with four turbochargers coupled to a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox will power the vehicle. It will yield an output of 1,200 bhp (895 kW / 1217 PS) and 1,500 Nm of torque, similar to that of the current model Veyron.

The new Veyron will have a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time of around 2.5 seconds and slightly inch past the Super Sport’s performance numbers by means of weight-saving measures. The vehicle will incorporate thinner glass and lighter alloy wheels to reduce overall weight by about 100 kg (220 lbs) as compared to its predecessor.

The new Veyron with a price tag of over £1 million (€1.2 million), is to debut sometime in 2013 and will go on sale in 2014.

Bugatti Veyron Super Sport Smashes Speed Record 5
Posted by Alex Ion in Bugatti, Bugatti Veyron, Super car news, Veyron, Veyron Super Sport on 07 5th, 2010

Who is the fastest on the tarmac? If you thought it was the Shelby SuperCars’ Aero SSC TT that fits the bill as the fastest production car in the world, think again!

Bugatti has climbed on to the top position, post a June 26 drive when test driver Pierre Henri Raphanel drove an orange-and-black Veyron 16.4 Super Sport to an average top speed of 268 mph (431 kph).

The event that got underway at the VW Group’s test facility at Ehra-Leissien saw the Veyron Super Sport tumble all high-speed records. The question as to who is the fastest has been remaining unanswered for quite a while now.

The Veyron Super Sport is a much higher version that the usual Veyron we usually get to see. The company has thrown in additional power and has increased it to 1,200 hp, while the quad turbo W16 would return torque at 1,106 pound-feet.

The car has ensured this via its enlarged turbochargers and intercoolers. The company has also incorporated in the Veyron Super Sport a redone suspension that is capable of managing aero downforce at speeds about 260 mph.
