With the Bugatti Galibier all but fading into the shadows, Bugatti has been left with nothing to show the auto market apart from different Veyron variants in the past year.

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.

I wonder why they will make it as a hybrid. Is there a good thing to change it and built it into a hybrid?

That thing might affect the cars performance for sure. However, hybrid cars are good at some point.

Hybrid technology is happening left and right and its the exact time for Bugatti to follow them and lead in results as everybody expects.

Do you think they can make a Bugatti with a powerful performance and powerful output if they will create a hybrid version of the Veyron?

Will it affect the current modifications and power of this Veyron?

Bugatti loves to experiment the things up as they spices and heated the things up on their way. Hybrid is a nice thing to do and I hope they will offer it on us soon.

I’m sure that there will always someone willing to wait for Bugatti. They are the most successful supercar maker in the world.

If they want to make a hybrid type of Bugatti, then they should make a car that don’t generate too much horsepower for efficient electricity consumption.

Making this vehicle a hybrid type might affect its performance negatively. But if the manufacturer has the technology to maintain or upgrade the performance despite of being hybrid, then its good.

I wanted to know what will be the result of this.

What is Veyron without safety features and hybrid system? It’s the feature I admire about this vehicle.

Not only, it has the reputation of owning the fastest car in the world. It has also one of the most attractive styles among other cars.

I think Bugatti is working on it. Well, they really have to because the public told them.

They have to respond immediately on the suggestion of the people about the hybrid technology on Bugatti.

If this is all part of its improvement, why not do it now?

  (630) posted on 07.10.2012

Start working on it Bugatti.

Why could and not must? Hybrid technology is happening left and right and its the exact time for Bugatti to follow the trend and lead in results as usual.

Why wait? Bugatti you better do it now, or else you’ll leave behind in the competition.

Quoting W. Shakespeare:
"Oh God! WHY???"
A hybrid? Really? Bugatti better get their ideas in order.
