The Bugatti Veyron is a tough act to follow. It packs over 1000 horsepower, can hit speeds in excess of 250 miles per hour and costs over a million euros. The trouble is, with 250 out of 300 already built and no more special editions on the way, the Veyron is reaching the end of its production cycle. That means the top-shelf Volkswagen subsidiary has got to make a new model, and to make sure it gets it right, reports indicate that the company will display three individual new concept cars to gauge public opinion in order to determine what form it should take.
One of the concepts is dubbed Bordeaux, a four-door ultra-luxury high-performance sedan, expected to debut in the near future as the company rounds out its centenary celebrations. What the other two are, however, remains to be seen. Some speculate on a two-door GT or an evolution of the Veyron formula. In any event, the Veyron's successor will most likely carry its 8-liter quadruple-turbocharged sixteen-cylinder engine, which cost the company big bucks to develop and would be a shame to waste at the end of the Veyron's run. Beyond that, your guess is as good as ours. But you can bet it'll be expensive, exclusive and very fast indeed.
