Bugatti CEO Wolfgang Durheimer revealed the company has no intentions to lose their crown of producing the world's fastest production vehicle.

Speaking with Car Magazine, the executive said the title was "vital" to the company's image and would respond if a vehicle is launched that exceeds the Super Sport's record-setting 431 km/h (268 mph). As Durheimer put it, "It's in human nature, we are always going to want to find out who runs the 100m the fastest. It's the same with cars."

This is rather interesting as the SSC Tuatara is reportedly being developed to hit 443 km/h (275 mph). So is there a Veyron successor in our future?  Perhaps.
