    After years of speculation, Bugatti head Stephan Winkelmann has delivered a final answer on the potential for a Bugatti SUV. That answer is no. In a year-in-review announcement from the French luxury and supercar brand on Wednesday, Winkelmann explicitly said there will not be an SUV from Bugatti even though the "time appears appropriate." He added an SUV would not do justice to the brand or its history. The sentiment makes Bugatti only the second brand to absolutely rule out the potential for an SUV following McLaren. Lamborghini, which Winkelmann previously headed up, has introduced the...
