Stop dreaming about a rumored upcoming Super Veyron, reportedly with 1,600 horsepower and a 0-60 sprint of 1.8 seconds, as it will never materialize despite countless reports to the contrary. That is the official word from Bugatti President Dr. Wolfgang Schreiber, who sat down with us at Pebble Beach this past weekend to extinguish the gossip and discuss the future of the supercar.

As you may recall, Bugatti has promised a total production run of just 450 Veyrons. To date, they have delivered about 390 vehicles, including countless special edition models like the recent Legends models that debuted in Monterey. While early cars made 1,001 horsepower (like the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport, pictured above, which we photographed during our review), all of the remaining production - expected to last until 2015 - will be fitted with the 1,200 horsepower version of the quad-turbocharged W16 powerplant that will push it to 254 mph. Despite a slew of limited edition models, there will be no further engine enhancements.

But don't fear that Bugatti has lost its performance itch, as the company is busy working on something equally as mind-blowing as a "replacement" (Schreiber doesn't like to use the word "successor," as that suggests a predecessor is inferior) to the Veyron when production finally comes to an end. Of course, that statement set us dreaming again.

      ...but the replacement will surely be superior to the Veyron, right? So doesn't that make the Veyron inferior? Tech progresses; it's nothing to be ashamed about.

      What happened to the Galiber sedan? Not even billionaire buyers?

        The idea of the Veyron's engine in a proper sedan is just awesome. I would love to see them build it. Moreover, the Galiber (though a little aesthetically challenged on the outside) had one of the best interior designs I've ever seen. The dash was perfection.

      Time flies, didn't even realise that the Veyron was already 8 years old

      The Veyron is ready to die. Every person who can afford one has purchased one drove it for a year and then sold it. I have seen 4 for sale in the same dealership.

      Though very expensive, I think the Veyron's rims are hideous.

        Funny, I feel the same way about its WHEELS.

      Obviously the Veyron will Evolve with time, nothing more could be expected from a vehicle of its kind. Which Bugatti would make other models though. I guess there no rush when the sole vehicle they sell is several Million Dollars.
