The latest rumours from within the higher management levels in Molsheim, France suggest that we will be seeing a Bugatti SuperVeyron at the 2013 IAA Motor Show in Frankfurt. According to news via Automobile magazine, a 1,600hp ultra Veyron is planned to be released at the German car show.
The development and release of the Veyron Hyper Sport includes a lower weight 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.
