Is Bugatti creating an even faster Veyron?
A sort of super-duper super sport version of the old Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport that, according to the rumors mill, is going to have a top speed of 488 km/h (303 mph). Really?
Since Bugatti and especially the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport lost the title "Fastest production car" in the world just days ago. This was because the Guinness World Records representatives discovered that the car had been modified with a deactivated speed limiter. The rules claim that the vehicle must be mechanically identical to the version sold to customers, which it clearly wasn't.
What now, then?
Rumour is now flying around about a new Bugatti that might be the ultimate road-going vehicle. According to the rumor mill, a sort of super-duper super sport version of the old Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport that will have a top speed of 488 km/h (303 mph)!!! Clearly, a rather insane number if it's true.
Bugatti themselves spurred on the rumors by posting the following statement on their Facebook account "The stage is set. It’s almost time for us to share the latest example of exceptional Bugatti performance. Keep a close eye on Facebook over the next few days."
Does this mean they will take back the record set in 2010?
