Following the release of a couple of teaser images showing what was tipped as an upcoming new model from Bugatti, the automotive press has been all up in a frenzy speculating over the form that the highly anticipated new car will take. But while the conclusion was that the car would be unveiled to the public at the upcoming Frankfurt Auto Show, new reports suggest otherwise.

According to sources inside the company, Bugatti will indeed be showing a new concept in Frankfurt – but only to a select group of customers to gauge reactions among its exclusive clientele. And while it may seem like a waste to bring a concept car to the show only to keep it hidden, it may be indicative that the car itself won't be ready for a full public unveiling, for which we'll apparently have to wait a little longer. In the meantime, Bugatti will reportedly be back up to its old tricks with – yep, you guessed it – yet another special edition Veyron at the upcoming Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, where sister company Bentley will be unveiling its own new super-luxe saloon. Stay tuned for more.

      You're not that cool anymore, Bugatti.

      Maybe it's good that it won't be shown to public. A great harm to everyone's eyes will be avoided, and public can continue to live their peaceful lives without Crapgatti and spam of exhaust pipes.

      Does VW seriously think pictures wont leak out?

      I hear that putting all 8 tailpipes on there took longer than they expected. They're now behind on the side graphics, giant wing, and spring cutting required to get it show-ready. Also, the front bumper was too close to body color so they had to send it back.

        +1 for farris for the bub rubb reference!

        I heard they are working on an advanced whistle tip system that if needed to be replaced is priced at a first born child.

        It's like an alarm clock!

      This is exactly what the world needs! 8 tailpipes and another special edition Veyron. My guess is it will be the "buy me please" edition veyron, with interior decked out in gopher fur, two monumentally sized fuzzy dice, a Bang and Bangsomemoreson music system and a 3 tone paint job (yellow green and red).

      You're walking on thin ice Bugatti.

      That just sounds creepy.

      GTFO.

      The problem probably is that at the last minute they decided that going halfway and putting on 8 tailpipes was ridiculous, so they decided to go to the full 16 to reflect the cylinder count.

      I still don't think there are enough tailpipes.
      I really feel like Bugatti is really slacking here in the tailpipe department.
      There should be at least 16 on the back and perhaps another four on each side and an optional smokestack set.

      Are those 8 tailpipes? If they are, I can't possibly see how that is going to turn out well.

        @HotRodzNKustoms
        yeah 8 pipes does seem like overkill

        8 tailpipes is the sort of thing I see my border brothers do to their pick-ups. My guess (hope) is that this teaser isn't real and that Bugatti will do something more elegant like the Veyron's tail.
