According to a recent report, the long-rumored Bugatti Veyron SuperSport is headed for production. As we have previously reported, ex-VW Chief and current Supervisory Board member of Volkswagen AG, Ferdinand Piëch has hinted a high-performance Veyron is a possibility, but declined to comment further.
While details are limited, CarsUK is claiming an unnamed source has dropped a €400,000 ($496,470) deposit to purchase one of the 30 SS models which will retail for €1,650,000 ($2,047,675). The source also said the SuperSport will boast 1200 bhp (895 kW / 1217 PS) and weigh approximately 300 kilograms (661 pounds) less than the standard Veyron. More interestingly, the buyer stated the Veyron will have a revised exterior but the company isn’t sending out pictures to people who have already purchased one.
If you’re a bit of an optimist, look for a possible unveiling at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August.
