Mysterious Bugatti Amazes At The Ring, But What Is It?

Never judge a Bugatti by its cover.

What you are looking at is almost certainly a prototype of the Bugatti Veyron’s successor. While there’s nothing to speak about in terms of styling, you are certainly going to be interested in what the new hypercar sounds like. As previously revealed, the Veyron’s successor, currently codenamed Chiron, will use the same 8.0-liter, quad-turbocharged W16 set up, but with up to 1,500 horsepower on tap thanks to direct fuel injection and electric turbochargers.

For some reason the test driver at the Nurburgring was taking things painfully slowly, but there’s no doubt that toned down exhaust note is a result of some silent electric wizardry going on under the Vitesse bodywork.
