As a result, we're told to expect a 0-62 time of just 1.8 seconds, with top speed increased to 288 mph. That would position the new Super Veyron as that much faster than any of the incoming crop of hypercars, including the Porsche 918 Spyder
C-X75, McLaren P1
or the upcoming successor to the Ferrari
Enzo. The added pace would be optimized by a curb weight lightened by some 550 lbs thanks to new front and rear chassis sub-structures, bolted to the same tub for a 3,527-lb total weight, along with some fancy new active aerodynamic elements. If the reports prove accurate, we could be looking at the Frankfurt show next year for the launch of the new Super Veyron.
