Volkswagen CEO Matthias Müller recently announced anything that isn't "absolutely necessary will be cancelled or postponed" and then followed up by suggesting that Bugatti was one of the makes under scrutiny.

That has raised a number of questions about the fate of the Bugatti Chiron but it's apparently safe for the time being as the company told Jalopnik "everything will continue as planned."  

Bugatti has only provided a few hints about the model but they have already confirmed it will feature styling inspired by their Vision Gran Turismo Concept.  Additional information should be taken with a grain of salt but reports have suggested the car will cost approximately $2.5 million and feature a quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 engine that uses e-turbo technology to produce approximately 1,500 bhp (1,118 kW).  If these numbers pan out, the car could rocket from 0-60 mph in about two seconds before hitting a top speed in excess of 280 mph (450 km/h).
