Bugatti Veyron: Sport version with 1200 bhp planned!

Bugatti Veyron
We found this piece of information in a totally unrelated article in a local German newspaper, discussing some silly ideas about speed limits on German highways.

But here's the breaking news: Bugatti seems considering to build a sport version of the Bugatti Veyron with 1200 bhp! Wow, we are impressed.

Here's the original quote as well as the translation, done by our friends from Google:
Das Spitzenmodell von Bugatti, das 1000 PS hat, solle demnächst in einer Sportversion mit 1200 PS auf den Markt kommen. Resch: „So starke Motoren sind in der Formel 1 nicht zugelassen.“ Auch Daimler-Chrysler plane für die E-Klasse einen knapp 700-PS-Motor.

The top model of Bugatti, which has 1000 HP, is to come shortly in a sport version with 1200 HP on the market. Resch: „So strong engines are not certified in the formula 1. “Also Daimler Chrysler flat for the E-class one scarcely 700-PS-Motor.
