is reporting this morning that the ultra-exclusive, ultra-hyped Bugatti Veyron is getting a targa version
A source told the weekly auto newspaper that the Volkswagen-affiliated supercar maker is offering a targa version, instead of a full convertible, because no other solution would be compatible with the Veyron's safety structure.
The removeable panel won't be stored in the car, either -- there's no room.
Bugatti has confirmed separately that it's working on a convertible edition, but hasn't said the form the convertible would take, nor when it would be available. The total production run for the roofed edition of the supercar is 300 copies.
No confirmation yet on whether Bugatti will develop a second car under the Volkswagen Group's leadership.
