Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport – Click above for high-res image gallery

Rumors of an even more powerful version of the Bugatti Veyron have been around almost as long as the Veyron itself. But after abating for a couple of years, now that the Veyron's production run is winding to an end, the reports have begun creeping up again.

The gossip suggest that the Bugatti will send off the Veyron with a final run tuned to 1,200 horsepower, trimmed of 300 kilograms (660 pounds) of excess weight and capable of hitting 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill in 2.2 seconds en route to a 425 km/h (264 mph) top speed.

Reports further suggest that the ultimate Veyron will revive the SuperSport label used on the most powerful version of the 90s-era EB110 and the 30s-era Type 55. Only 30 examples are said to be in the pipeline, each carrying a €1.5 million ($1.8M) price tag. Sources expect the Veyron SuperSport to make its debut at the upcoming Paris Motor Show in the Fall, so truth or speculation, we'll find out one way or another in a few months.

      Will this make a profit? Someone please tell me what is the point of making an expensive car sold at a ridiculous price AT A LOSS? What exactly is the business model? It just boggles my made that VW is so willing to take a huge loss for every Veyron sold.

      And this matters why? I'm honestly not trying to flame. I just don't see how this car is relevant anymore. It's 6 years old and, personally, the styling looks dated.
      It just seems like one of those things people buy just to say they have. And from what I've heard/read the car doesn't even drive all that well. That it's mainly just about the horsepower. There are more capable, just as exlusive, almost as fast cars for less money. I just don't see why anyone cares anymore.

        So is a Koenigsegg which is a hell of lot more exlusive and just as fast. Costs about the same for the regular models. And the super fast/powerful versions are just as expensive as modified veyrons. Oh, they also drive better, and not just in a straight line. Weigh a lot less too.

        I have a hunch that at least a few of the SuperSports will go to men who already have one Veyron in their stables. Veyron buyers must be obsessed with exclusivity to begin with, not having the most exclusive version will drive them crazy. (Not that I wouldn't trade up for the newest version of my car of choice had I the limitless means to do so.)

        Dont forget the reigning king, the Aero SSC.

        Because it's fast as hell.

      Totally worth killing for...1.8m!

      Its alright, a GT-R will still be able to beat it...

      Ok, not really. But in the wet, on a good day, a highly modified GT-R might have a chance.

      A 1200 hp Production Car is just nuts. Have to love Bugatti for it.

      Damn :) what I'd do to get a job at Bugatti is unspeakable!

      Still the ultimate excessive car.
      • 5 Years Ago
      NEEDS MORE HORSEPOWER!
        • 5 Years Ago
        At this point, the only thing this car really needs is MORE COWBELL!

      A technological tourdeforce.

      The whacky Frogman's Trike is cooler than this.
      • 5 Years Ago
      i'd give my left nut for one of these.... i really do mean it.

      They just GOTTA let the Stig have a go in this (given where the normal Veyron sits on the Top Gear chart)
