Bugatti has had a long storied history with the bulk of that history centered on a very small lineup usually consisting of one lone model. The Veyron has served as a recent example; the Veyron has the task of not only upholding its role as the pinnacle of Volkswagen's engineering and technology, it also holds the fortunes of the entire Bugatti brand on its shoulders. The upcoming Chiron was expected to continue where the Veyron left off in this regard, but it appears that it is about to receive a companion model, according to a new report from Australia.

Well, that is true; however, there are cars that are almost all-American, and that should count for something.
