Porsche to produce Veyron-beater
There are rumors that Porsche is set to produce a Bugatti Veyron-beater. The new model will be based on the Le Mans car that Porsche has under development, but will be a road-going version. The launch is set for 2009.
The new model is going to be called GT1. The engine will probably be a GT’s V10 or a turbocharged V8 with 950 bhp. Top speed is expected to be arround 254mph - 2 mph more than the Veyron’s speed: 252 mph. The GT1 will be based on the Carrera GT, using a modified version of its carbon fibre chassis but with a different nose and tail, plus a roof. The dashboard’s said to be very similar too.
