    Bugatti Lydia: Second Bugatti model might be most expensive ever - The German Car Blog


    According to German Auto Motor und Sport Bugatti has finished plans for a second model on their desks, however Project Lydia is currently being stopped for further evaluation. If going into production as originally planned, it would be the most expensive Bugatti ever with 2.5 Million Euro each.

    Reports are now surfacing which indicate that the new model could be an even more expensive, even faster supercar than the Veyron. Whereas the Veyron, for all its enormous, time-bending power and speed, was designed as a comfortable grant tourer, the new model would be a tighter, more track-focused supercar. Power would likely come from a retuned version of the Veyron's 8-liter quad-turbo W16, which was long reported to be under-rated in its power production of 1000 hp, and is tipped to produce 1175 hp in the new version. Artistic renderings from German magazine Auto Motor und Sport depict the car with styling more akin to a Le Mans racer, with a protruding front splitter and an enormous rear wing.

    The vehicle, currently rumored to be code-named "Project Lydia" after Ettore Bugatti's wife, would exceed the 400km/h top speed of the Veyron in pursuit of a Nurburgring lap time of 6 minutes and 40 seconds.

    Wow. Imagine if Bugatti really did go Le Mans racing with that... It'd be so cool! I know these renderings are modified from the Veyron's basic looks, but the concept will really make you notice. The Caparo T1's demise? Watch this space
