Ettore Bugatti, an Italian man described as an eccentric genius, founded Bugatti high performance vehichles in 1906. The original company is legendary for some of the most exclusive and fastest cars in the world.

The company struggled financially into the 1960s eventually being purchased for its airplane parts business. Today the name is owned by Volkswagen AG who revived the brand as a builder of very limited production sports cars.

In the aftermath of the seemingly never-ending farewell to the record-breaking beast that is the Bugatti Veyron, new video footage shows the potential successor lapping the Nurburgring rather leisurely.
