Details about the vehicle destined to succeed Bugatti’s Veyron have been scarce and kept under wraps, mostly because the car, along with the production version of the Bugatti Galibier sedan concept due out in 2014, are still being built.
But, that doesn’t mean the manufacturer isn’t toying around with ideas for it’s soon-to-be newest flagship model. Engineers are hoping to reduce its weight and introduce the latest technology, which may include carbon fiber wheels and adopting hybrid technology.
An electric model would be a strategic move for Bugatti to reduce emissions, an ever-growing concern and requirement for car manufacturers. Using electric motors to direct torque could also significantly improve the handling of the Veyron.
But despite the proposed changes and improvements, expect the car to keep the Veyron name and its title of world’s fastest production car.
