Bugatti has plans for a second model to sit below its forthcoming £800,000 Veyron hypercar... and you can ready about it exclusively in this week's Autocar. The £120,000 Ferrari 612-rival should appear by 2008, Richard Bremner reveals. It will be a practical car useable every day, in the mould of Porsche's 911, and could look like the car our artist's impression points to.

Specifically, its layout will be that of a mid-engined two-plus-two, reviving a breed of supercar that hasn't been around since the Ferrari Mondial finished production in 1994. Running on a unique platform, but with access to VW's extensive parts bin, it could ultimately end up with a twin-clutch DSG gearbox, a drivetrain borrowed from Lamborghini, and 500bhp - either from Audi's 4.2-litre V8 in turbocharged guise, or VW's W12 unit best known for its employment in Bentley's Continental GT.

Bugatti = Waste of time by the company & waste of time every trying to find info about it,

The biggest nonsense to come into automotive history after Maybach,

And yeah if they say 2008 i guess realistically 2018!

i'm not going to bother with Bugattis anymore man. after all the hype they created behind the Veyron, they actually expect people to be interested in the new one? launch one, and then Bugatti, maybe i will spare some time for your car.

I love the Bugattis.. ofcourse except for the Veyron Debacle.. But I'd really want to see them back at the top.
