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.

  1. The original Veyron was supposed to be a money loser, but now that they sell them at twice the price with small tweaks, why not build a next generation car? I’m guessing this is another of those 1.5 generation cars like the Gallardo LP560-4 and Murcielago LP640-4 carrying over the major components like the expensive carbon monocoque and that transmission in particular.

  2. I’ve got to say that this is a awsome car and its not big at all no more
    Bigger then a Toyota supra and I like that there making it 500lbs lighter with a quicker
    0-60 mph time 1.8 that’s nice and a 2.2 ft/lbs ratio that’s amazing I’ll pre order one in full tomorrow

  3. "Veyron Hyper Sport"

    The Normal Veyron was more power than made sense to have.

    Then they made a Super Sport.

    Now they've decided that's not enough and now they need a HYPER sport.

    When your building a car worth over $3 Million, "practicality" throws itself out a window.
