The Bugatti Bolide has made its racing game debut just over a month after its real-life debut.
Since it's a one-off prototype, very few people will get to experience the mind-blowing performance of the Bugatti Bolide. Bugatti hasn't even decided if its new track monster will enter series production. Boasting the same 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine as the Bugatti Chiron uprated to 1,824 hp and 1,364 lb-ft of torque when running on 110 octane racing fuel, the bonkers Bolide is Bugatti's fastest, lightest, and most extreme concept the company has ever built.
And now you can take it for a virtual spin on your smartphone after Bugatti partnered with Zynga to bring the Bolide to the popular mobile game CSR Racing 2. This represents the Bolide's racing game debut just over a month after the car's real-life debut.
CSR Racing 2 enables players to compete against each other online around the world in real-time drag races with cars in various categories. Points scored from race wins can be used to upgrade cars or buy more powerful models.
With a power-to-weight ratio of 0.67 hp per pound and a simulated top speed of over 310 mph, the Bolide was designed to tear up the track, so it should easily destroy opponents on the drag strip in CSR Racing 2. In real-life, Bugatti claims the Bolide can complete a lap of Le Mans in just 3:07.1 minutes and lap the Nurburgring in 5:23.1 minutes. Thanks to CSR Racing 2's stunning console-quality graphics, the Bolide has been accurately replicated in the game.
"We are thrilled to have our fans experience the raw track-ready power of the Bugatti Bolide virtually through CSR2," said Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti. "Interactive entertainment allows racers across all generations to get behind the wheel of our latest hyper sport cars and feel their performance."
This isn't the only Bugatti you can race and configure in the game. Other Bugatti models include the Chiron Pur Sport, Chiron Super Sport 300+, La Voiture Noire, and the Centodieci. Given that Bugatti collaborated with Gran Turismo developer Polyphony Digital to design the Vision Gran Turismo a few years ago, we're also hoping the Bolide will be available to drive in the upcoming Gran Turismo 7 for PlayStation 5.
