Could a new über-sedan be in the offing from Bugatti? Rumors of a more practical model from the Volkswagen-owned supercar maker have been swirling ever since the Veyron was introduced back in 2005, and the idea has merit since it would likely allow VW to recoup some of the massive development costs that surely went into creating the Veyron. Now, a lone still shot from what is supposedly an invitation to a party celebrating the automaker's first 100 years in business has the interwebs speculating that a super sedan is on its way to an unveiling at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

Previous rumors indicated that a new Bugatti sedan could share a platform with the next Bentley flagship – which we know is to debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance next month – and use the same all-wheel drive system and 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine as the Veyron. At this point, a Bugatti sedan is nothing but speculation and it's equally as possible that we could see either a successor the the four-year-old Veyron in Frankfurt – or nothing at all. In any case, we'll keep our eyes and ears open for more details in the coming months.

      8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine.... 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine.... 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine.... every time I read it and read it few more times

      Maybe they are doing a version of the Mini like Rolls Royce. That rear mounted airbrake would look hilarious on a Cooper S.

        Haha! I hope not! They might TRY and make a small car, but with all the bits they would want to put onto it, it'll come out way larger!

      Really hope it's the sedan. Been drooling over the concept of one since .... well, the rumors surfaced.

      Kinda looks like a hatchback rear end - think Scirocco Premium

      The Bugatti Ugly: 9089793hp, as many pounds, and the ugliest design we can think of!

      Why not?
      If Porsche can make a butt ugly 4 door 911 and there are fools that will buy it, why not make a butt ugly 4 door Veyron so fools will buy it.

      Why stop there. Why not make a butt ugly Veyron station wagon also.

        Yes, please. And make it a diesel.

      Pleasure overload!!!

      Can't wait till Frankfurt Auto Show.

      That doesn't look very saloonish to me, but I guess it could be a four door estate like the old Bugattis. Here's hoping it'll get the same crazy W16 with maybe even more power. After all Bugatti say the engine can produce over 1200hp without drama.
