Latest report says Bugatti will be launching a final and extreme version of the Veyron next year which is being described as “a fantasy in terms of its performance.”

Compared to the Veyron Super Sport, the new variant will make extensive use of carbon fiber which will lower weight by approximately 200 kg (440 lbs) so it should tip the scales at around 1,688 kg (3,721 lbs). In addition, output of the quad-turbo W16 engine will be lifted from 1,184 bhp (883 kW) to more than 1,500 bhp (1,118 kW) by increasing the mill’s capacity rather than adding electric power as it was believed in late 2012.

Rumor says top speed will be limited by tire technology but the report mentions at least 280 mph (450.6 km/h) to entice buyers willing to spend an alleged 5M GBP (5.8M EUR or 7.7M USD) price tag.
