The Bugatti Veyron is set to be eclipsed by its eagerly anticipated successor; The Bugatti Chiron. It claims it will be the 'world's most powerful, fastest, most luxurious and most exclusive production super sports car', and although its design is still secret, it is expected to look similar to this car created by the firm for the Gran Turismo computer game.
   
The Bugatti Veyron is set to be eclipsed by its eagerly anticipated successor. 
 
The French car manufacturer has confirmed its new car will be called the Bugatti Chiron in honour of legendary race car driver Louis Chiron. 
  
While technical details are sparse, Bugatti claims it will be the 'world's most powerful, fastest, most luxurious and most exclusive production super sports car.'

This suggests the Chiron will make more power than the 1,500-horsepower Koenigsegg Regera.

The 2016 Regera is set to be able to accelerate to its top speed of 248 mph in less than 20 seconds - faster that any other production car in history.
 
It claims to be able to do 0-60 in 2.8 seconds.
 
However, currently, the Veyron is the world's fastest street-legal production car, reaching 0-60mph in only 2.5 seconds.
 
Selling for around $1.5 million (£1.4 million), Bugatti only made 450 of the exclusive model which was named by Top Gear as 'car of the decade'.
 
Rumours suggest the Chiron will be capable of accelerating from 0-60mph in just 2.3 seconds, with a top speed of 288mph - more than 20mph quicker than the Veyron.

The Chiron will have be a quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 with torque output at around 1,106 lb-ft. The car will is expected to cost in the region of $2.5 million.
 
Bugatti claims that it has already taken 100 orders for the new car.
 
Chiron is now undergoing final testing in various locations around the world.
 
In May, a disguised Bugatti Chiron was spotted undergoing testing on a German road.
 
The video - from Audo Bild TV - showed two prototypes travelling alongside a Veyron Super Sport and a BMW i8.
 
The Bugatti Chiron will make its official debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in March next year.
