Bugatti Veyron successor could be built as a hybrid
But not it appears that the French automaker is getting ready for their latest offering, the long-awaited successor to their mighty super car.
According to a report from AutoExpress, Bugatti is currently developing their new super car, and coming as a bit of a surprise to us is that the car could very well be a hybrid.
Bugatti’s chief vehicle engineer, Jens Schulenburg, was quoted by the UK car magazine saying that while the Veyron successor will remain the company’s flagship model, it will be packaged a little bit differently than its predecessor.
“The big challenge on the next car will be reducing weight," Schulenburg said. "We are looking at some incredible technologies, such as wheels made entirely from carbon fiber. Hybrids are definitely something we are looking at too."
While no official details have been released, we know how Bugatti takes these things seriously. So we expect nothing less than a model that can put even the supremo of all super cars, the Veyron Super Sport, in its place.
