No public launch for new model at Frankfurt, say source
27 July 2009

Bugatti will not be launching a new concept model at the Frankfurt motor show in September after all, according to company sources.

A teaser picture on an official Bugatti invitation to an event at the show has been circulating online, prompting speculation that Bugatti would be launching its second production model, a Rolls-Royce Phantom rival.

However, Bugatti sources claim the new model will only be shown to a select few customers, executives and dealers to gauge reaction to the car ahead of an official launch.

Bugatti will be launching another special-edition Veyron at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance event in the US next month, meanwhile. The latest Veyron special edition will be based on the 16.4 Grand Sport convertible model.
