New information has been released regarding the new 1,600hp Bugatti Veyron, which will be the world’s fastest supercar when it arrives next year and is released at the 2013 IAA Motor Show. The renders released by AutoExpress.co.uk show how the all-new ‘super’ Veyron could look like. Chief vehicle engineer Jens Schulenburg told the British magazine;
We are working on the next super-sports car. The big challenge will be reducing weight – we are looking at some incredible technologies, such as wheels made entirely from carbon fiber. We’re considering hybrids, too.
The development and release of the Veyron Hyper Sport includes a lower weight of 250kg via the use of even more carbon fiber, more horsepower and an even more mind-boggling top speed of 288mph. Driven, as usual, by grandmaster Ferdinand Piech himself, the Ultra Bugatti gets a beefed up 8.0 liter (or 9.6 liter) engine that delivers 1,600hp.
The rumored acceleration time from 0-100km/h is 1.8 seconds, which would better the upcoming Ferrari Enzo replacement and the McLaren P1 hypercar. The secret to all this is a weight saving of almost 550 pounds over the Veyron Super Sport. At 3,527 pounds, the limited-edition Veyron for the super mad and the super rich achieves a power-to-weight ratio of one kg (2.2 pounds) per hp.
