1350hp Bugatti Veyron racing to Geneva Show

It’s been ten years since the Volkswagen Group relaunched Bugatti, but anyone familiar with historic automobiles — or automotive history — will tell you that the automaker has been around a lot longer than that. 100 years, to be exact. Although there were periods in between when the carmaker wasn’t producing, it’s been a century since Ettore Bugatti launched his company. The Bugatti team within the Volkswagen Group aren’t about to miss an opportunity, and are reportedly working on something special to present at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.

Bugattis are special enough as they are, but Veyrons are hardly uncommon in the overall scheme of things. Bugatti has launched a number of special edition supercars with unique paint schemes and trim packages. If the latest rumours are to be believed this latest special Bugatti could prove very special indeed. Apparently called the Centenaire edition, reports suggest this unique Veyron may have an increased power rating — word on the street has always been that the Veyron’s quad-turbo W16 was always capable of more than its already gigantic 1000 horsepower rating it has. Estimates suggest it could go up to some 1350 horses, good enough to boost the top end up to 420 km/h from the current benchmark of 400 km/h. Special paint schemes and trim pieces will most likely be part of the mix as well, but ascending to these levels of power and performance will be a birthday gift indeed.

We’ll know for sure soon as the Geneva show is just around the corner. Check back for more updates from the show.
