Anyone who thought the Bugatti speed legacy was going to quit at 1200 HP may be in for a big surprise once the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show gets underway. According to Automobilemag, the French manufacturer is working on a 1600 HP version of the Veyron and have dubbed it the "SuperVeyron."

The new Bugatti SuperVeyron is supposed to incorporate extensive use of carbon fiber, shaving off about 550 lbs from the Veyron Super Sport’s total weight of 4052 lbs. Under the hood, Bugatti will place an 8.0-liter (or 9.6-liter) engine that will deliver an amazing 1600 HP, and a power-to-weight ratio of one kg (2.2 pounds) per hp thanks to the amazing weight loss. With these additions, the new SuperVeyron will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 1.8 seconds, while top speed will be raised from the current 259 HP up to an impressive 288 mph.

Next to the extra power, the new supercar will also get new designs for the front and rear with even more sophisticated active aerodynamics.

If these reports are true, then all of this will come in at a not-so-bargain price of over $2.5 million.
