There won't be a Super Veyron because Schreiber believes "1200 PS is enough for the chapter of Veyron and its derivatives" while the Galibier would "dilute the Bugatti philosophy." He confirmed development of a Veyron replacement has begun and the car's main objective is to "redefine the benchmarks" which the current Veyron still holds.
When asked if whether the next Veyron will resort to hybrid technology, Schreiber responded with an inconclusive "maybe". He did say we can "forget about McLaren, Porsche and Ferrari" because "all the next Veyron has to worry about is... the current one."
At the beginning of December we found out Bugatti sold 400 units of the Veyron and it seems in the meantime an additional seven units were sold as Schreiber says only 43 cars are available at this moment, with all of them being roadsters. Production of the current Veyron will end in 2015 when Bugatti will "close this chapter and open another one."
