New Bugatti model teased in party invitation?

  1. New Bugatti model teased in anniversary party invitation?

    Could a new über-sedan be in the offing from Bugatti? Rumors of a more practical model from the Volkswagen-owned supercar maker have been swirling ever since the Veyron was introduced back in 2005, and the idea has merit since it would likely allow VW to recoup some of the massive development costs that surely went into creating the Veyron. Now, a lone still shot from what is supposedly an invitation to a party celebrating the automaker's first 100 years in business has the interwebs speculating that a super sedan is on its way to an unveiling at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

    Previous rumors indicated that a new Bugatti sedan could share a platform with the next Bentley flagship – which we know is to debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance next month – and use the same all-wheel drive system and 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine as the Veyron. At this point, a Bugatti sedan is nothing but speculation and it's equally as possible that we could see either a successor the the four-year-old Veyron in Frankfurt – or nothing at all. In any case, we'll keep our eyes and ears open for more details in the coming months
     
  2. lol "Who wants to pay $1 million for a four dour Veyron on a Bentley chassis?"
     
  3. As if the Panamera isn't bad enough...I just hope Bugatti gets this right unlike Porsche did with their 4 door monstrosity.

  9. 1000hp luxury sedan? Now that's something I want to see.
     
  10. shut up bandwaggonhopper.
     
  11. ********UPDATE********


    Further evidence that Bugatti has a new product planned for its centenary celebration at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September comes by way of PistonHeads in the U.K., which offers up this image of the rear of what may or may not be a vehicle called the Bordeaux. Of course, before we pull this one completely out of the rumormill file, we'll need either official word from Bugatti or an actual picture of the party invitation that this car supposedly graces.

    Assuming for a moment that this image is the real deal, we see some interesting tidbits from which to glean tantalizing details of the future car. While we're still not certain if this could be the World's Ultimate Sedan, some bizarre sort of shooting brake, or even a supercar to replace to Veyron (or none of the above), but the thin strip of brake light right down the center reminds us of the dorsal seam from the iconic Type 57SC Atlantic – certainly a fitting way to recollect the French automaker's first 100 years in business.

    Note, too, the inclusion of eight rather obvious exhaust tips at the rear of the car, which reinforces speculation that this vehicle will be powered by Bugatti's current 8.0-liter W16 powerplant. If that's the case, we'd also expect the Veyron's all-wheel-drive system and active aerodynamics to keep the ridiculously powerful car from going airborne. As much fun as it is to speculate, we look forward to getting official word from Bugatti as Frankfurt draws nearer.
     
  12. Silly exhaust pipes.
     
  13.  
  14.  
  15. Hope it looks better than Panamera.
     
  16. r!ce
     
  17. it will, IF it's true
     
  18. Every time someone calls the Panamera ugly, they're hopping on the bandwagon.

    That is #$%#ing bullshit, the Panamera looks horrible, regardless of the way it drives. They could have done so much better.

    I will not stand for this "bandwaggonhopper" BULLSHIT!
     
  19. fair enough. i think most people on this site say it, because the majority thinks it's ugly. i for one don't think it looks ugly. it's not beautiful or anything(front/side view is though), but still it's not as bad as some of you make it out to be.
     
  20. holy shit, BANGLE TM

    seriously though, I know how you feel. all you can hope for is that in a few years time people will realiye it's pretty much okay if not good and stop saying BANGLE LOL... I mean, panamera whatever..

    but if they don't, then rest assured, BMW WAS RIGHT AND WERE WERE WRONG #$%#ERRRRRRRRRRR
     
  21. It wouldn't have been as bad if the concept renders hadn't been so hot...
     
  22. only 8 tail pipes?!?! wtf
     
  23. You can whine all you want, but even if it's ugly, it's going to be the best sedan ever made.
