; Volkswagen is uncertain about the financial future of such high-end models. It now seems the super sedan will not go on sale until 2015 or 2016.

and derivatives of the Veyron are very focused on the needs of the customers. If you now switch to a different type of car, it is very necessary to evaluate the needs of the customer. The launch date is still not decided yet. The four-door is absolutely necessary. The hero car, the Veyron, is now alone. I think customers would be very pleased if we had a second car, so I support it very much," said Bentley and Bugatti boss Wolfgang Schreiber.

Schreiber was formerly technical head at Bugatti.
