Bugatti Veyron Centenaire: 273 MPH Top Speed?

The rumors surrounding the Bugatti Veyron Centenaire, possibly debuting at Geneva, have just gone to DEFCON 3 with Auto Motor und Sport reporting a 273 MPH top speed.

We've already reported on rumors of a Centenaire edition to celebrate the 100 years of Bugatti. While we completely believe the company will celebrate with yet another special edition of the Veyron, we're still a touch skeptical about the "440 km/h" and "1400 HP" claims for this new model. Of course, if anyone was going to do something so obscenely over-the-top it would be Bugatti.
