What if …
BUGATTI developed a radically light, completely new concept around its iconic 8.0-liter W16 engine?
The answer: the BUGATTI Bolide
An uncompromising experiment, a thoroughbred, a Pur Sang that, in its brute exclusivity, impresses above all with high performance, low weight and a driving experience in a new dimension. Driving the Bolide is like riding on a cannonball.
With the experimental study of the BUGATTI Bolide, the French luxury car manufacturer is presenting a new and unique vehicle concept for the ultimate BUGATTI performance kick: a track-only hyper sports car featuring the W16 engine derived from series production combined with a minimal body for maximum downforce. The Bolide offers an unprecedented and ultimate BUGATTI driving experience: reduced, raw, authentic.
What does the Carscoops author Brad Anderson say about the car:
The Bugatti Bolide is perhaps the most outlandish vehicle ever conceived by the French car manufacturer and the original show car was recently brought along to the Concours d’Elegance at Villa d’Este in Italy.
Interestingly, the original Bolide show car isn’t simply a stationary display vehicle as some may expect. In fact, it is fully functional and is powered by the car manufacturer’s 8.0-liter W16. In this form, the engine churns out an extraordinary 1,824 hp and 1,364 lb-ft (1,850 Nm) of torque, figures that are made all the more remarkable when you consider that the whole car weighs just 1,240 kg (2,733 lbs).
