For the most part, people can agree that the Bugatti Veyron is the greatest car ever. Yes, naysayers, like McLaren CEO Ron Dennis, can go ahead and begin their negative commentary now, but just be sure to know that pro-Veyrons aren’t going to listen anyway. Now, being the greatest car ever leaves little room for others to dive in and take that place. However, as you may or may not know Bugatti is preparing a replacement for the current Veyron supercar and this could mean a new model taking the place atop the automotive pedestal. This next supercar will be more powerful and faster than the current Bugatti Veyron.

During a recent interview Big Boss Piëch confirmed that the next Bugatti will have 1200 hp. With that amount of power the new supercar will hit a top speed of more than 260mph, making it again the fastest car in the world. Along with a slight bump in output, the new super car should also be a bit lighter, by about 300 pounds, which will not only make it more efficient at speed, but will bring the 2.5 second 0 to 60 MPH time down a few tenths.

We’ll keep the masses posted on any other information we receive about this future monumental vehicle.

Bugatti is ready to set another speed record. I hope they’ve made a special tire to compensate with that kind of speed.

Impressive! So this would be the new car of james bond on his next movie.

The SSC Ultimate Aero isn’t in production. The Veyron may be fast in top speed and acceleration, but that’s all it does. It’s terribly unreliable, has unbelievable maintenance costs, and can’t corner at all. Even the slippery Z06 is faster through a slalom, and the 1993-1998 Toyota Supra turbo, with 1/3 the Veyron’s horsepower, laps the Nurburgring faster. The Veyron is pathetic. If you want an equally luxurious and exclusive vehicle yet that’s much more dependable and faster around any racetrack, buy the LFA or One-77.

1. The Veyron is no where near the best car. It isn’t the fastest top speed, it handles like crap, and it is far from a Spyker, Mercedes, Mabach etc in luxury.

2. The 2007 SSC Ultimate Aero did 257mph and ran out of room. It can actually do 265mph.

3. In 2009 SSC upped the Ult. Aeros horsepower to 1287hp (87hp more than this Veyron) and decreased the drag 5%(it was already lower than the Veyron’s)

4. Subtracting 300lbs from a 4400lb car is unnoticeable in performance or efficiency.

Cool! It even out speed the SSC Ultimate Aero. For sure bugatti don’t want to settle
their speed record at 253MPH but how about the Brabus TKR? TKR was rated 20MPH more faster than the Veyron.
