Bugatti CEO, Wolfgang Durheimer, is spending far too much time worrying about Koenigsegg and SSC and their attempts in breaking the Veyron Super Sport’s top speed record.
What he should be doing is not overlooking other automakers that could swoop in and snatch the precious title away from his company because there are others that are more than capable of doing that, particularly Rotary Supercars.
We’ve already heard from these guys a few months ago with the RSC Predator GT. This car comes with a Mazda 138 MSP-based four-rotor Wankel engine that produces a nauseating output of 1,184 horsepower. Despite it’s otherworldly power, the Predator GT is not the car that RSC is turning into its personal Veyron slayer.
Another model - a still unnamed model - is being developed to carry an eight-rotor rotary engine that produces an absolutely criminal 2,801 horsepower and 2,580 lb/ft of torque. Those numbers will supposedly allow the car to hit 0-62 mph in less than one second - absolutely insane - with a top speed that hits 280 mph.
No further details were revealed of this mystery supercar, but RSC has quietly made plans to introduce their maniac machine at the 2012 Top Marques Monaco.
Best be warned, Bugatti.
