Rendered Speculation: Bugatti Veyron gets the sedan treatment. Again.
Even now, we still don't, but that hasn't stopped AutoExpress from issuing some new artist's renderings that it says depicts a four-door model that will be unveiled at this September's Frankfurt Motor Show. The "hyper-saloon," will reportedly inspired by Bugatti's 1927 Type 41 Royale, though we're not really seeing anything approaching an homage to that car in sketches shown.
In any case, AE says Bugatti may be collaborating with Bentley (another VW Group luxury property) to co-develop a new front-engine platform that would underpin both the Bug sedan and the next Arnage. Even if that is the case, the UK publication maintains that the Veyron's all-wheel drive and 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine will be maintained.
Assuming the project gets the green light, AE says to expect 60 mph in three seconds and a top whack of 250 mph.
