Post Veyron Successor: 0-60MPH in 2 seconds

From here: Bugatti Veyron Successor To Do 0-60 MPH In 2.0 Seconds: Report

Bugatti just sold its final Veyron, which means full attention for the crew in Molsheim, France has turned to the car’s successor, a new supercar tipped to be called the Chiron and packing a hybrid powertrain. Early test mules for the car have been spotted, but no new details could be ascertained from these as they still resemble the original Veyron.

Some things we do know about the car is that it will feature an upgraded version of the Veyron’s quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W-16 engine. The engine currently produces 1,184 horsepower in its most potent setting but with the addition of a new fuel injection system, an integrated electric motor, and perhaps even electrically-driven turbochargers, we could see output boosted significantly.

CAR is reporting that output of the Veyron successor will register at a staggering 1,500 horsepower and 1,106 pound-feet of torque. While these might seem like impossible numbers for a production car, recall that rival supercar marque Koenigsegg has just launched its Regera with 1,500 hp and 1,475 lb-ft of torque.

And with 1,500 hp on tap, the Veyron successor is said to be capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in just 2.0 seconds, down from 2.5 seconds in the 1,184-hp Veyron Super Sport. Top speed, meanwhile, is said to be as high as 288 mph, or about 20 mph faster than the land speed record-holding Veyron Super Sport.

The unveiling of the Veyron successor, whatever it's called, is expected to take place next year.

The 1250hp production GTR is not happening.

LM car =/= production car.

That's like saying the production TLX is the same as the race TLX

Thanks for posting that, Yummy. Bugatti is in desperate need of a new marketing company.

In doing the unthinkable, Bugatti CEO Stephan Winkelmann told Australian website CarAdvice there won’t be another 16-cylinder Bugatti engine after this one. Preposterous! Who could imagine a future where people could, potentially, get close to counting the cylinders in their Bugatti on their... fingers?

Well, a lot of people can. Whether it’s more due to tightening emissions standards or everyone wanting to be a mobility company, the future of cars is about efficiency, electricity and not using so much gas. Bugatti’s W-shaped 16-cylinder gas engine, which gets a combined 11 mpg in the 1,500-horsepower Chiron in U.S. government estimates, don’t exactly fit that mold.

Bugatti, whose current car lineup of the Chiron, Chiron Sport and the new Divo is entirely powered by its quad-turbocharged W16, decided it’s finally time to get with the emissions program like everyone else. That means phasing out the W16, because sooner or later, Winkelmann told CarAdvice, “legislation will force everybody to take radical steps.”

From CarAdvice:

Power outputs for the monster mill have grown steadily since it was introduced in the Veyron 13 years ago, and may well expand further, but Bugatti CEO Stephan Winkelmann has confirmed it won’t be replaced once its time is up. [...]

“There will be no new 16-cylinder, this will be the last of its kind. It is an incredible engine and we know there is huge enthusiasm for it, everybody would like to have it forever, to continue to develop it – we will do our utmost to keep it alive... but if you want to be on the edge with advanced technology it’s important you choose the right moment to change.”
Winkelmann told CarAdvice Bugatti will have to do some form of electrification in its cars eventually, but that whatever Bugatti does will need performance matching that of the W16. It’ll also need to be a credible solution “for the people who are buying Bugattis today,” he said.

But don’t say your goodbyes to the W16 just yet. Even though he said the engine won’t have a 16-cylinder successor, Winkelmann told CarAdvice Bugatti could have some more fun playing around with it before it leaves. From the story:

“When I was at Lamborghini I always said power to weight ratio is the key, we always reckoned that one kilo less is more important than one horsepower more,” he said.
Pour one out for the dying W16, which, despite not having a successor, will no doubt make Bugatti owners pour out the contents of their bottomless wallets at gas stations for many years to come.

To celebrate its 110th anniversary, Bugatti will organize a grand tour of places where Italian-born company founder Ettore Bugatti was active through his life. The ultra-limited edition Divo will also enter production at the Molsheim factory this year, joining the Chirons and Chiron Sports on the line. Having built 87 last year, Bugatti expects its W16-powered hypercar's production to last until the end of 2021.

Although the Chiron Sport project was started under Wolfgang Dürheimer's direction, the Divo is Stephan Winkelmann's doing. The former Lamborghini boss is known to be tired of the horsepower wars, and aware that Bugatti's quad-turbo W16 engine has no future after the Chiron.

Now, Winkelmann announced that Bugatti will not try to top Lamborghiniin the game of pointless performance SUVs. "There will be no SUV from Bugatti," the CEO said. "An SUV would not do justice to the brand or its history."

Bugatti's declaration that it will not build an SUV makes it the second supercar maker, after McLaren, to announce that it won't jeopardize the brand in the pursuit of volume.

Even though Bugatti won't build an SUV, Winkelmann didn't say that company would only build supercars. What about a Bugatti luxury sedan?

Bugatti has the luxury of not being a real brand and instead just the mega project of Volkswagen group. Bugatti doesn't have to sell SUVs because all the other brands do.
