Will Bugatti Reveal a 1350-hp Veyron at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show?
In celebration of the company’s 100th birthday, there is a rumor that Bugatti is bringing a 1350 -hp version of the Veyron, supposedly called the “Centenaire Edition,” to the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. Never mind a few periods of dormancy since the company started in 1909, a Veyron with that kind of power heals all wounds.
Bugatti is no stranger to special edition versions of their super car, but this could be a bit more than the typical paint-and-trim job. If the rumors are true, that massive quad-turbocharged W-16 engine will pump out another 350 ponies, allowing the car to reach speeds of up to 261 mph. Increasing the top speed could put the Veyron back on top of the SSC Ultimate Aero and the Maxximus G-Force as the world’s fastest production car.
In less than a week, we’ll know for certain as to how Bugatti plans to celebrate its centennial. For now, all we can do is hope it chooses something like this…
