Click above for a high-res gallery of the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport.

The big question for Bugatti is: What comes after the Veyron? Seriously, there isn't much that could top the 1,000-or-so horsepower, quad-turbo, 16-cylinder engine that's carried around in the back of the most gorgeous body ever with an equally exquisite interior. How about a revised model with 1,200-horsepower and 1,106 lb-ft of torque? Yeah, that'd do nicely. Rumors indicate that an über-Veyron could make an appearance at the very end of this current generation's production.

Despite consistent rumors of the firm's eventual demise after that, head-honcho Dr Franz-Josef Paefgen says that another supercar and possibly an ultra-lux saloon (four-door to all you poor people) could be in the cards for 2012. In an effort to curb greenhouse gas emissions, alternative-fuel powerplants will also be on the drawing board. We know that parent-company VW has plenty of worthy powerplants in its parts bin, and the idea of giant torque funneled through an all-wheel drive system has us saving our millions already.

      Super Veyron.
      ahhh man, what am i gonna do with the one i just bought last week?:(
        • 7 Years Ago
        Ahhh don't worry, I'm sure when the Super Veyron comes out you (and CORVETTEZR1) will be able to buy one :)

        Damn I like horsepower

      The last time I heard, VW has lost money on each Veyron they sold. So from a pure business prospective, if Bugatti is still unprofitable, why bother doing it? Does VW have that much money to waste? That tells me that it is profitable, or there is much more behind it unknown to the general public.
        • 7 Years Ago
        From what I've read, the reason Veyron is unprofitable is because of all their R&D expenditures when making the first model. So for them to expand the line (Grand Sport, limited models, Super Veyron) would make financial sense as there would be very limited R&D expense compared to the first model. I'm sure that VW has a business case for this model that makes financial sense either in a branding/marketing, revenue generating, or technology producing arena.
        Due to its limit in quantity, I'm sure they will find buyers for each and every one.

      i just don't care any more. I guess I've reached my threshold with the Veyron. Great engineering feat and all but I don't care what they do now.

      Just when you think 1000 horsepower is too slow.....
        • 7 Years Ago
        perhaps instead of engineering more HP, they could make the engine lighter, use less fuel, and produce less heat

        who knows, maybe even reduce the material cost too.

      For some strange reason, I would love to see a Veyron, with that much power but run by a diesel. Imagine the torque :)
        • 7 Years Ago
        That would be on par with a Locomotive

      Gorgeous? I still think it is one of the ugliest, most pointless cars on the planet. Really, I would prefer an Atom, an S-class, and about 4 billion in change.

      Oh well; to each his own I suppose.

      Not really

      In the days of 1800hp+ street cars running 93 pump gas, is 1200hp that great? Yup, 8 liters and over 4100lb, that thing is a technological masterpiece of efficiency. Hey I have an idea, don't make it weigh 2 tons!
