There's no doubt Bugatti has another model in the works, and with the end of Veyron production in sight, the rumor mill is churning anew. This round postulates that a new model, called the Royale, will debut in concept form at the Frankfurt Motor Show this fall.

According to reports, the Royale would be even more exclusive than the Veyron. If the original Type 41 Royale is the inspiration, we could be looking at only a handful of examples available to Bugatti's most loyal customers (like that guy in Holland waiting for delivery of his third Veyron). Given all the money that went into the development of the Veyron's quad-turbo W16 engine and the bespoke dual-clutch gearbox that went with it, it'd be a wise bet to assume the drivetrain will carry over, although it's likely to be reconfigured for duty up front rather than the Veyron's mid-ship arrangement. Any truth to the rumors? Hard to say at this point, so we'll just have to wait until Frankfurt to find out.

      The Bugatti Veyron has a 7-speed DSG transmission. Bespoke means custom-made to a buyer's specifications. How exactly is the gearbox in the Veyron bespoke?

      Bugatti: because anyone can come up with an elegant design-- it takes true genius to create something this ugly.
