Bugatti Vision GT

After releasing various teaser shots, Bugatti has unveiled its
contribution to the Gran Turismo 6 Vision GT project. For
starters, the Bugatti Vision GT is the virtual representation
of how a real next-gen of racing Bugatti could look
in the real world.

The project allows designers and engineers from the real-auto
market to develop automobiles for the virtual world without the
limitation of budgets, regulations or even reality itself.
Unlike competing designers who go to great extremes, Bugatti
has preferred to keep things in the realm of what is possible
at the moment.

Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo Exterior

The Bugatti Vision GT is instantly recognizable. The super car
features two overlapping elements. The first element is the
lighter blue front section while the second element is the
darker blue rear that overlaps the front. This scheme can be
traced all way back to 1937 Le Mans-winning Type 57 G Tank.

Unique Bugatti curve arcs over the side windows forming a
massive air intake. The darker component composes the
greenhouse which swoops into the vented hood; however, it
doesn’t look anything like a traditional hood. On the other
hand, the lighter blue component extends on the sides to form
the doors and then disappears into the air intakes on the
vehicle’s sides. The front fascia features two menacing
headlights each hosting 4 rectangular lights that complement
the car’s hallmark horseshoe grille. The grille doubles up as a
F1-style mount for its huge carbon-fiber front splitter. It
also has two end plates that drive air into two dive planes
located at the front corners.

At the rear, the Bugatti Vision GT features a large LM P1 style
rear wing with a dorsal fin which dominates the rear. Most part
of the rear appears to be open. It also comes with a huge rear
diffuser and 4 central exhaust pipes above it. To complement
the rear look are the Cylon-like LED light strips that form its
taillights.

Bugatti Vision GT Interior

The Bugatti Vision GT’s interior is racier than the high-luxury
interiors common in Bugatti cars. It features a blue
carbon-fiber racing bucket. In front of the seat is a
multi-function steering wheel and a high-resolution display.

The exterior curves are echoed inside with an exposed
carbon-fiber spine that forms the center console and flows
through the middle of the cabin and arcs into the ceiling. More
information will be disclosed at a later date.

Engine, Specs and Performance

During its debut, the manufacturer didn’t disclose any
information about its power plant. However, our sources within
Bugatti have leaked to us information on what might power the
car. It will be a hybrid engine with as much as 3 electric
motors to supplement its huge combustion engine. Number 16
on the grille suggests that the main engine to be powerful
8-liter W16 quad-turbocharged petrol engine, originating from
the Veyron. The vehicle might come in all wheel drive; however,
the front wheels will be powered by electric motors which will
eliminate the need to send internal combustion power to the
front.

The power-plant will produce around 1,500 hp and 1,100 lb-ft of
torque. This engine will fly it from 0-60 mph in only 2 seconds
and that is bullet fast. It will have a top speed of around 290
mph.

The price of the car with Bugatti badge is always touching the
sky, but even those who can not afford one Bugatti, will have
to wait a year or two, then it is expected the new Bugatti

technical details taken from Bugatti Vision GT. Vision
