Bugatti Shows Off New Hypercar With Speeds Of More Than 300mph

Bugatti Shows Off New Hypercar With Speeds Of More Than 300mph

Bugatti has unveiled a new 1,800-horsepower, track-only hypercar - and it's about as ridiculously powerful as you'd imagine.

The Bugatti Bolide is, at the moment, just a concept - but it is quite the concept.

Achim Anscheidt, Director of Design at Bugatti said: "In my 16 years at Bugatti, I have never worked on a more extreme vehicle concept."

While, Stephan Winkelmann, Bugatti President added: "We asked ourselves how we could realise the mighty W16 engine as a technical symbol of the brand in its purest form - with solely four wheels, engine, gearbox, steering wheel and, as the only luxury, two seats."

Designed only for track driving, the car has a modified version of the huge 8.0-liter 16-cylinder engine found in Bugatti's Chiron and is designed to be ultra-lightweight, which means it could reach speeds of more than 300mph, according to Bugatti.

Bugatti say driving the car is 'like riding on a cannonball', which sounds bloody terrifying if you ask me, but each to their own.

It goes on to say: "The Bolide offers an unprecedented and ultimate Bugatti driving experience: reduced, raw, authentic."

It also offers a rather unusual way of getting into the driving seat, with would-be motorists having to open the door, sit on the doorsill and pop their legs inside before sliding into the seat.

On its website, Bugatti says of the design: "The design of the Bugatti Bolide is radically tailored to the idea of lightweight construction, resulting in the most provocative proportion of a modern Bugatti ever and the distilled quintessence of our Bugatti design ethos form follows performance.

"The stylistic challenge was to transform the unyielding demands of aerodynamics and lightweight construction into an aesthetic that reflects the unique Bugatti DNA, but at the same time illustrates the ambition of an impressive weight-to-power ratio.

"The overall appearance is dominated by air ducts that are more reminiscent of Formula 1 racing cars than classic sports cars.

"The seemingly filigree and half-open front end is a striking example of the combination of air duct expertise, lightweight construction requirements and aesthetic dynamics."

Fancy.
