More than a week ago, the Bugatti Veyron’s successor was spied in production guise for the first time at the the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). A day later, Bugatti released the new megacar’s first teaser. The company laid another hint in an announcement suggesting the successor’s secret preview at the Pebble Beach saying that it will use event “to look to the future”.
Now, Instagram user hungry_pigeon has uploaded two pictures on his account of the new megacar’s prototypes. There were three prototypes and these were likely brought to USA to be showcased privately to potential customers at the 65th Annual Pebble Beach Concourse d’Elegance and are now heading back to Europe for further development.
Not much can be said about the supercar since it has been cleverly camouflaged. The black wheels are visible and the rear wing is also deployed. These are the prototypes and hence, won’t even sport many key parts that will be there in the production version.
Earlier this year in May, it was reported that the Veyron replacement will continue with the 8.0-litre W16 engine. However, the engine will be upgraded for more power and torque. All of 1,500 bhp and 1,500 Nm of torque will make the Chiron capable of reaching 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.0 seconds and hitting a top speed of 464 km/h. A 7-speed DCT gearbox will transfer the power to all the wheels of the car. The next Bugatti could be publicly unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in March.
