Bugatti extends gearbox production contract with two years

The production of the Dual Clutch Transmission system of the Bugatti Veyron supercar has been extended by a two-year contract, as the director of high performance transmission products, Mark Barge, informed that they were really pleased to experience a sustainability of the partnership with Bugatti, concerning the dual clutch transmission of the Veyron. The veyron is considered to embody a supercar that boasts the ultimate levels of quality automotive design, manufacture and engineering. The representatives also stated that they looked forward to living two further successful years in the history of a truly great automobile, with the advanced Ricardo transmission. The seven-speed DCT unit is going to be manufactured at the Ricardo facility at Leamington, UK. This piece of news appears to be quite interesting due to the fact that the Veyron lifecycle is reaching its end. Two possible explanations would suggest that Bugatti is intending to extend the Veyron production with more versions or the upcoming Grand Sport Super Sport or Super Grand Sport might enter the scenery, as according to the rumours, it in a full process of development. The Galibier 16C Concept may be another option, representing a four-door super-sedan, planned by the supercar maker from Molsheim and it is going to be released in 2015, which gives Bugatti two more years to cover the current Veyron before the Galibier replaces it. This might be a sensible reason for the extended production.
