The Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo concept car has been showcased in a new video. The concept, which was revealed at the Frankurt motor show last month, offers a glimpse at the firm's future design language.
Although the Vision Gran Turismo concept car will only ever be driven virtually, its styling is said to preview that of the Chiron - Bugatti's planned successor to the Veyron. However, with VW setting aside billions of euros to pay for the fallout caused by its emissions scandal, it's likely that development of the Chiron has been put on ice.
The Vision Gran Turismo concept is driven by a W16 engine that delivers its power to all four wheels.
Bugatti says the concept presents "the new form and design language developed by the brand to celebrate the next chapter in its history following the end of the Veyron era."
Production of the regular Veyron recently came to an end with the La Finale special edition, unveiled at the Geneva motor show last March.
Bugatti design boss Achim Anscheidt said: "Bugatti’s design DNA has reached a new stage in its evolution. In view of the nature of the project, our concept car for Vision Gran Turismo will be exaggerated and extremely performance-oriented.
"Even so, the progressive design language will give an impressive demonstration of the path to be taken by Bugatti design over the next few years.”
Achim Anscheidt, head of the Bugatti design team said that the next Bugatti will adopt a toned-down version of the concept’s looks: “Given the nature of the project, our concept car for Vision Gran Turismo is overstated and pushes performance to the limits, but its progressive design language will clearly show the direction that Bugatti's design will take in the coming years."
