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.
