A test prototype of a Bugatti Veyron has been caught on camera with minimal camouflage

A test prototype of a Bugatti Veyron has been caught on camera with minimal camouflage.

Judging by the two-tone red-black exterior finish, it appears to be the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse La Finale that will be revealed during the Geneva Motor Show. The photographed vehicle has some black foils on the wheel arches and the rear bumper, while the door handles, fuel cap and the rear badge are covered with white scotch tape. Obviously, the car is running at low speed and the rear spoiler with the La Finale lettering is not activated.

A successor for the model is already planned. It could wear the Chiron moniker and will likely receive two electrically-powered turbochargers for a total power of around 1,500 HP (1,103 kW). No official details have been released yet, but Bugatti president Wolfgang Durheimer commented “many of our customers are art collectors, and they know that it takes time to create a work of art”, hinting it could be awhile before we see the new supercar.
