Powertrain

A lighter and more rigid version of the carbon fiber monocoque chassis (with aluminum subframes) of the Veyron will likely be employed, along with the Veyron’s existing quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W-16 engine. And we should see a version of the Veyron’s seven-speed dual-clutch carried over, albeit with an integrated electric motor to form the aforementioned hybrid component.

While the electric motor will add some additional horsepower to the car’s output, to reach the expected 1,500-hp target, up from the Veyron Super Sport’s 1,184 hp, Automobile magazine is reporting that the 8.0-liter W-16 will receive direct fuel injection and increased boost pressure from its four turbos. Two of the turbos are also expected to be electrically driven at lower rpms, to help eliminate turbo lag and ensure the car’s engine is always on the boil.

Performance estimates include a 0-60 mph time of less than 2.5 seconds and a top speed of 288 mph, or about 20 mph faster than the Veyron Super Sport. To achieve these figures, complex aero systems with active elements will likely be employed.
