It has been long rumored that the hypercar fancy folks over at Bugatti were considering development of an all-new second model to sell in the lineup. Despite record sales on the back of the new Bugatti Chiron, the Covid-19 pandemic has stalled any plans for the future car.

Bugatti President Stephan Winkelmann, who moved over in 2018 from in-house pals Lamborghini and Audi Sport, confirmed to Bloomberg TV that the boutique automaker’s development team had done work on a potential second model.

The boss cited market instability due to the global Covid-19 pandemic for added pressure ahead of an important upcoming financial review from Bugatti parent-company Volkswagen Group as a factor in halting development of the new car. From Bloomberg:

The decision was prompted by the damage inflicted on the car industry by the Covid-19 pandemic, Bugatti chief Stephan Winkelmann said in a Bloomberg

By JOSEPH PISANI and ANNE D’INNOCENZIO, AP Retail Writers

NEW YORK (AP) — Add last-minute holiday shopping to the list of time-honored traditions being upended by the coronavirus pandemic. Retailers are kicking off the holiday season earlier than ever this year in hopes of avoiding big in-store crowds and shipping bottlenecks in November and December.

Stores like Best Buy, Macy’s, and Target typically offer their biggest Black Friday deals over Thanksgiving weekend, but now they’re starting them in October so people don’t crowd their stores later, creating a potentially dangerous situation during a pandemic.

Women business owners, there’s financial help out there if you need it

To state that COVID-19 has indelibly impacted our lives is an understatement. The arrival and spread of the still-mysterious virus has blighted every aspect of life, including the world of business and particularly, businesses catering to — and created by — women.

An American Express study last year found 22% of women-owned businesses were hair salons, nail salons and pet grooming studios, and that women own 16% of businesses in the food service and hospitality sectors — businesses that are particularly vulnerable amid pandemic restrictions. A survey by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce found that 24% of small businesses were on the verge of complete closure.

With loans becoming scarce and no guarantee of another stimulus package, business owners have been looking for alternative assistance, and many have found success locally with the LiftFund Women’s Business Center.

Since the pandemic hit the U.S., LiftFund advisers have been helping female entrepreneurs
