    I'm starting to hear things about a Track Only Car, anybody got any info?

    It seems that the Track Only car I heard about would be a One-Off EV based on the LeMans Vision Concept.

    And the car would be unveiled in October.

    If all this is confirmed and that it is produced in Small Series (between 10 and 20) it could be really interesting, it could make some really incredible Track Days.

    What’s the point of an electric track car though? Yeah it can accelerate really quick but you’d need to charge it every 3 laps or something and there is no noise! Or any soulful noise, it’ll just sound like a laptop that’s over loaded dubbed with tire squeal.

    I don’t really think they’re gonna sell a few of them if that’s the plan, maybe a one off but I don’t see a few people wanting this car.

    I think it's going to depend on the design of the car, and if they make it a One-Off what would be the purpose?

    As far as the lack of noise is concerned it's always the problem with EVs, but if Bugatti can make a record breaking Track Only EV then it makes sense to me.

    But I'm not a big fan of a Bugatti EV, unless it breaks records.

    I guess we have to give them a chance and see what they come up with.

    The Car is not an EV.

    I have no right to say anything sorry, except that you're going to be blown away!

    Fair enough, totally understandable and very much looking forward to it!

    New video of the car testing. You can hear it at the end but it doesn’t sound like the 8.0l W16 to me.

    I can't wait to be allowed to talk about this car, it's going to make a lot of noise!

    Looks like some of those wild Vision GT prototypes, I like what I see so far. Maybe a hypercar-class LM model? It will be unveiled on Oct 28th, so It's just a few days away.

    I don't have the right to be precise about the car yet, but think about a car without ANY rules, this model really goes to all extremes.

    In the same style except that we can't buy the Porsche. There is much more to say but we will have to wait until October 28th to discuss it in detail.
