In a recent interview, Volkswagen's design chief, Walter de Silva, has confirmed that Bugatti is readying a new hypercar for 2015-16. Though he did not divulge any details, the upcoming hypercar is expected to use the Veyron's 8.0-litre W16 petrol engine which could be mated to an electric powertrain. The hybrid system is expected to produce over 1,500PS of combined power, which should be good enough to break all the speed records set by the Veyron family.
