Is Bugatti preparing to unveil the Super Veyron after all?

Bugatti teaser

Bugatti is up to some trickiness this morning as it posts a teaser image to its official Facebook page. As you can see from the image above, the teaser doesn’t give us much. It’s simply a set of hangar doors, slightly agape with some sunlight bursting through.

Included with the picture is this cryptic caption: “The stage is set. It’s almost time for us to share the latest example of exceptional Bugatti performance, simply keep a close eye on Facebook over the next few days.”

What many in the industry are taking this tease to mean is that the long anticipated Super Veyron is soon to debut.

We reported early this year that Bugatti had ordered more Veyron transmissions, which likely meant another even more extreme version of the Veyron was in the works. We wagered it’d be the Super Veyron, which would be even more powerful than the Veyron Super Sport.

Early indications put the top speed of a Super Veyron around 288mph with a 0-60 time in the 1.8-second range thanks to a horsepower output around 1600.

Alternately, the next Bugatti car could be a concept that previews the up and coming 16C Galibier. The four-door luxury car would put out 1400 horsepower from a 16-cylinder engine.

Expect the next Bugatti to be unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show later this month. We’ll be sure to bring you more as it unfolds, so check back?

Which would you rather see: the 16C Galibier or the Super Veyron? Both? Tell us in the comments.
