Bugatti to Stick or Twist with New Veyron?

 Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4

Will they or won’t they? That’s the question currently being asked of Volkswagen-owned Bugatti as rumours abound that a new super-charged Bugatti Veyron could be scheduled for 2014. However, commentators are divided, with some of the opinion that the current model will continue to be manufactured, citing the extension of an order for the car’s unique gearbox.

The Veyron is no ordinary vehicle – it currently holds the title of world’s fastest road car with a top speed of around 267mph and has been manufactured in various guises since 2005, even earning the accolade Car of the Decade (2000-2009) from popular .

The car currently boasts a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox made by engineering specialists Ricardo, and Bugatti has extended the contract for the $120,000-a-piece transmission sets to beyond 2013 into next year. Depending on your view, this either means the Volkswagen-owned marque will continue to manufacturer the car to its current spec or that any new model of the Veyron will incorporate the unique transmission as it is.

Rumours abound that the new model Volkswagen may be engineering will be an even faster Veyron that could go from 0-60mph in 1.8 seconds and achieve an eye-watering top speed of 288mph. With a potential 1,600hp, 9.6-liter engine and a heap of carbon fibre, expect it to cost in the region of $2.5million dollars if it does appear on the road.

Even if a new version is not on the immediate horizon, the company has continued to tinker with the iconic car and unveiled three very desirable special editions of the Veyron at the recent Geneva Motor Show. However, rather than mess with the technical spec, these were special editions with updated design features, both interior and exterior.

It’s safe to say that a new Bugatti Veyron will appear, especially with continuing speculation that the likes of Swiss manufacturer Weber is developing a potentially faster car – fastest road car in the world is not a title Bugatti will give up easily.
