The Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo has quite possibly been the highlight of the ongoing IAA Frankfurt Motor Show 2015 and the French marque has just released a video showcasing the philosophy behind the car.
During the clip, we get to hear from the head of Bugatti Design Achim Anscheidt as well as the company’s chief executive Wolfgang Durheimer who reiterates that the Vision Gran Turismo has been created for fans of Bugatti. Also included in the clip is Kazunori Yamauchi, the president of Polyphony Digital which develops the Gran Turismo frannchise.
Some of the most eye-catching features include the prominent front splitter extending far out from the bumper. Also at the front fascia are quad canards, a typical Bugatti horseshoe grille as well as an exceptionally short bonnet. Other key visual and aerodynamic components include air extractors on the front wheel arches, eye-catching side skirts, a Le Mans inspired rear fin as well as a towering rear wing.
Discussing the car, Achim Ansheidt said “The Bugatti design team normally works only for the exclusive and very distinguished circle of the brand’s customers. Now Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo has given us the opportunity, for the first time, to do something special for our fans as well. When the target group suddenly grows from 450 Veyron owners to several million fans, gamers and high performance aficionados, it is a very exciting matter. We had a lot of fun with this project.”
