Rumors abound regarding the technical specifications of the vehicle. Drawing from Bugatti’s initial announcements and insights from Rimac’s post showcasing V16 engine components, enthusiasts speculate about a groundbreaking powerplant developed with the expertise of Cosworth. It’s suggested that Cosworth has engineered an 8.3-liter, 1,000-horsepower engine, devoid of turbocharging and capable of revving past 9,000 rpm.

Addressing questions about performance, Rimac’s response to a Croatian challenge on Facebook further fuels speculation about the collaboration with Cosworth. The notion of outsourcing engine development to industry-leading experts hints at a strategic move to ensure the hypercar’s technological prowess without burdening the broader Volkswagen empire.

Intriguingly, the hypercar’s potential exclusivity adds another layer of allure. Reports indicate a production run of just 250 units, significantly fewer than its predecessors, the Chiron and Veyron. With an anticipated price tag exceeding $5 million per unit, the successor is poised to redefine automotive luxury and exclusivity.

Despite the scarcity of concrete details, the teasers and rumors surrounding the Bugatti Chiron’s successor have ignited the imaginations of automotive enthusiasts worldwide, setting the stage for a landmark unveiling in the hypercar landscape.
