The EU's environmental arm, the European Environment Agency (EEA), has said that several car makers will need to ensure their fleets are more carbon-efficient, in order to meet 2012 carbon dioxide emissions targets.
The agency said in a statement that 17.5 percent of overall greenhouse gas emissions in Europe are caused by road transport, with overall emissions having increased by 23 percent between 1990 and 2009.
New mandatory limits on carbon dioxide emissions were introduced by EU legislation for car-makers, with progressive fines for those who do not comply.
The International Business Times wrote that the penalties would mean Bugatti could face a charge of €40,000 per vehicle. Bentley meanwhile could be charged €20,000 in penalties.
