The French marque responsible for world records has been relatively quiet as of late.
Since it was announced they had produced their final Veyron, “La Finale,” on March 2, press releases and news about development have been scarce. However, that hasn’t stopped the enthusiast community from trying to peel back their secrecy and find out what’s next.
A test mule has been spotted on streets and in airport bays around the world, with grainy photos and videos surfacing from time to time, purporting to show their next creation.
Most have agreed that the Veyron’s successor will be named the Chiron, though that name has yet to be confirmed by the marque. But, in a video added to YouTube Aug. 13, they’ve broken their silence.
“I chase the day, the night, the new dawn. Imagine the impossible,” says the narrator of this quick 35 second clip. A clue to the official name of this new creation might be found in the video’s title, “#imaginEBugatti.” Every letter in the word “imagine” is purposely lowercase, except for the “E.” Could the EB name, the initials for the company’s founder, Ettore Bugatti, be returning? Or is it the 2018 Bugatti Chiron that Car and Driver reports will be able to reach 288 mph? Let us know your reaction in the comments below after you watch the video above, and find your own Bugatti from our exclusive listings.
