You’ve heard this one before, but Cars U.K. is reporting that a lighter and faster variant of the Bugatti Veyron — the SuperSport — is on the way. But keep a grain of salt handy, as the only confirmation comes from an anonymous buyer who claimed to be ready to transfer roughly $500,000 as a deposit to Bugatti.
A request for confirmation to Bugatti for was not answered at the time of this writing.
Reportedly, that $500,000 will only cover one-fourth of SuperSport, which has a price tag rumored to be just over $2 million. Cars U.K. reports that the Veyron’s output will jump to 1200 horsepower and that the car will be 661 pounds lighter due to extensive use of carbon fiber, which is curious considering the standard car (pictured) already has a carbon-fiber monocoque and body panels.
Nevertheless, Cars U.K. says only 30 SuperSports will be made that the company plans to reveal the car during Pebble Beach.
