At the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show 2015, Bugatti introduced the Vision Gran Turismo. Created not simply for the Gran Turismo 6 racing simulator but to also preview the design of the upcoming Bugatti Chiron hypercar, the car was arguably the highlight of the biennial auto show.
The French marque is also one of just a few to actually bring its Vision Gran Turismo concept to life. Additionally, it installed the car with a quad-turbocharged 8.0-litre W16 engine ensuring that it is fully operational and as the following video shows, it sounds ferocious!
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.”
