The new Bugatti is coming in 2016


Head of VW Group design confirms next hypercar is on its way. And it will be ‘art’

Get ready. The head of Volkswagen Group design has confirmed to TopGear.com that work on the next Bugatti model is well underway, with an expected launch in early 2016.
Walter de Silva, who has headed up VW Group’s design since 2007, said “we’re working hard at Bugatti, but don’t worry, it’s coming. I cannot predict exactly, but at the end of 2015 or early 2016, we’ll see the new Bugatti.”

De Silva wouldn’t confirm exactly what form this new car would take, but did concede that it “won’t be a Veyron replacement, it’ll be more than that. We’re investigating all avenues at the moment”.

He remained confident, however, it will be something incredible. “For me, Bugatti is not a car,” de Silva said, “it is a piece of art. You have to understand this. You are in another range when you talk about Bugatti. No, forget that, you play in another league with Bugatti. When you buy a Bugatti, you buy a piece of art. It’s a story, and I would like to transfer the Bugatti idea in this way.” [x]

Featured here are the three main types of porcupines: (i) The North-American Porcupine (Erethizon dorsatum); (ii) The South-American Prehensile-Tailed Porcupine (Coendou prehensilis); and (iii) The African Crested Porcupine (Hystrix africaeaustralis).
Although they are in the same rodent group (The Hystricognathi), Old World and New World Porcupines are actually in two different taxonomic Families (Hystricidae and Erithizontidae, respectively).
The North- and South- American porcupines are actually more closely related to chinchillas, capybaras, cavies, and guinea pigs (the Caviomorpha) than they are to the African Crested.
