Arrow Lamborghini working on Veyron-twin?

For all those who were saddened by the "untimely" demise of the Veyron 16.4 Coupe, here is something from the family what seems like a ray of hope. Yet another Lamorghini prototype wearing Bugatti'ish shoes and an Aventador body, could it be an SS version of the Aventador? Or is it a new Sant' Agata flagship Veyron-buster? This should be interesting.

If you were saddened by the death of Bugatti Veyron 16.4, prepare to cheer up as a spy photo has caught a Lamborghini Aventador prototype wearing the specially-designed wheels from the aforementioned model.
That isn't much to go off of, but Autoblog.nl speculates the vehicle is a high-performance tester that will be able to hit 250 mph (402 km/h). We're going to err on the side of caution and chalk it up as an interesting abnormality, for the time being, but there's little doubt Lamborghini will eventually introduce a range-topping variant.
As we have previously reported, the standard LP700-4 Aventador has a 6.5-liter V12 engine with 700 PS (690 hp / 515 kW) and 690 Nm (509 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed transmission which enables the 1575 kg (3,472 lb) supercar to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and hit a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).

Maybe but it doesn't make sense. Lambo and Bugatti are both under the same umbrella (VW family) . You can assume they'll build one to solidify their brand. But even if they did build a Veyron twin then VW would be reducing the appeal and stature of the Veyron and Bugatti overall. There is no car like the Veyron in the world that's what makes the Veyron a Veyron.

I don't think they'll do it. And the pic above just looks like an Aventador with Veyron rims. If they do it , it would be very weird. Almost suicide for the Bugatti brand. I hope they don't! Lambo didn't even build a contender for the Enzo and not even a prototype hypercar like the FXX and now they're going to pull off a Veyron?

Sounds like a bunch of speculations and rumors!

Suicidal? I doubt. Bugatti is anyway axing the Veyron and is going ahead with the Galibier production plans. Its better for VW to keep the title under its own belt than wait another decade for someone else to beat it

Yeah point taken. I just wonder what it will be like though, the expertise of the Bugatti engineers + finesse of the Italian builders. Should be a very very interesting car.

And Bugatti is only into 4-doors now? NO EB110 revival? WHAT!!!????

Maybe it's just some Aventador owner who is pimping up his car! We see Tatas with lookalike AMG rims.

^^ Aventador owner also trying to camouflage the car with Matt black vinyl ?
This looks like a case of Lamborghini borrowing a set of shoes to do some high speed testing . Aventador Lp-800 anyone ?
