Bugatti's New Hypercar Does One Final Tease

Teaser / Comments

All will be revealed tomorrow.

We're just one day away from the world debut of a new exciting Bugatti hypercar. Unlike the Chiron-based Bugatti Divo and Centodieci, recent teasers suggest this will be an all-new model since the striking design looks unlike any other car in Bugatti's current model lineup. With just one day left until the big reveal, Bugatti has posted a new tantalizing teaser of its mystery hypercar on social media confirming rumors it will be a track-only weapon.

"What if Bugatti created a track-focused thoroughbred… ?" Bugatti teased on social media. Accompanying the cryptic message is a revealing photo showing Bugatti's new track special stripped naked to its bare components.

While we don't get to see the work, the teaser confirms this track weapon will be combustion-powered. Previous rumors claimed the powertrain will be fully electric and sourced from Rimac, following reports that VW Group was planning to sell Bugatti to Rimac. We're expecting Bugatti's new thoroughbred to use the same 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 as the Bugatti Chiron producing over 1,500 horsepower.

Inside the cockpit is a racing-style seat, but don't expect there to be many cabin luxuries since this machine is designed to be as lightweight as possible. Before the covers come off tomorrow, Bugatti's new hypercar was recently caught being put through its paces out in the wild.

While the front retains the iconic Bugatti horseshoe grille, the rest of the design is unrecognizable as a Bugatti, sporting dramatic taillights shaped like an X-Wing starfighter from Star Wars, a racing-style rear wing, and a prominent roof scoop.

It looks a lot like a production version of the Bugatti Vision Le Mans that imagined what a Bugatti endurance racer could look like if it entered the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Is Bugatti preparing to enter the new FIA World Endurance Championship Hypercar Class? We'll find out tomorrow when Bugatti's mystery track weapon debuts at 3am pacific time and 6am eastern time.
