Bugatti's new hypercar has been spied in the wild wearing its production body!
Bugatti’s Vision Gran Turismo Concept left fans of the French marque aching with excitement for its latest creation. Speculative renderings of the hotly-anticipated new Bugatti – currently called “Chiron” – have followed and now, thanks to Magazín ProDriver CZ, we have the first sighting of the hypercar in the wild wearing the production body. Two prototypes were spotted testing wearing different taillight graphics. But it’s unlikely either of these will make it to the production car.
Striking more than a passing resemblance to the Vision GT concept that debuted in Frankfurt last month, the Chiron prototype boasts a prominent rear wing and central fin extending from the roof to the rear. Limited to 450 units, the Chiron will come packing a W-16 powerplant as part of a hybrid setup with power estimated at 1,500 hp thanks to the inclusion of electric turbochargers, and torque rated at 1,100 lb-ft. A ludicrous top speed of 286 mph is being targeted along with a 0-60 mph time of 2.3 seconds, which will make it the fastest production car ever made. The Bugatti Chiron will make its world debut in Geneva next March.
