The drive to office on a day of appraisal may not get the petrol-head paid anything higher than this! The first spy-shot is what a driver had managed to get on a fine day in Germany.
The present-gen Veyron which is discontinued to make way for the successor seems to have left the stage very early. As per the condition of test mule, it is easy to cite, they are still at an early stage and may take up to the next Paris Motor Show to finally reveal the ‘concept’ version of the successor. The production may take some more time to finally deliver its verdict.
Going by the spy-shots, there are two heavily clad examples of the new face of world’s fastest car followed by a predecessor (current-gen model), a BMW i8 and a Lamborghini Huracan.
The wide and swept clean roads of Germany must have gotten more stories to tell about them. But at our desk, there are nothing much to speak of, as the heavy cover on the mules obstructed the view. Still, the tail lamps are redesigned but a large wing and air intake is carried over from the past model, are our opinions.
Apparently, the Veyron throughout its life had succeeded in writing great stories on its name. The successor is rumoured to get called as Chiron, which is not very different from the former to pronounce, but altogether has a new meaning to the car for saying about its character. For this given claim, it may use a 8.0-litre W16 engine sending power of 1500bhp and 1500Nm of torque, with 0-60mph in just 2.5 seconds. All this result is assured to get transverse through a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. And its top-speed will bang the speedometer at 288mph, which is more 20mph than the previous model.
Hence, now all eyes on the Paris Motor Show for the carmaker to at least speak about Chiron’s details, at least by a slice, to lead open a whole new Pandora box for the industry to benchmark their upcoming cars at.
