The Next Bugatti (which will be presented this year) will not be EV.
I thought the rumors were the next Bugatti is a track only EV? Has anything changed?
I can't say too much, but I guarantee that the Next Bugatti (which will be presented this year) will not be an EV, the Car uses the W16.
Production car? A one off track car does not count. Chiron production probably has 3 or 4 years left.
If you are asking me is there going to be more than one then the answer is yes. The car I'm talking about (the one to be unveiled this year) is not an EV, it's not even close to that.
The new Huayra R was recently teased and due in November so it’ll be exciting to see the Pagani and Bugatti track only cars. Also rumors are Koenigsegg are cooking up an ultra limited car that might be the same concept but I’m not sure.
Pagani teaser, @36:50
For the Huayra R I had already heard about it I can't wait to see it.
For the Koenigsegg it's already been 1 year since it was revealed to VIP customers at Pebble Beach, from what a friend (who saw the car on the RV) told me it's super wild.
Exciting times before the full EV revolution and everything gets super quiet.
I believe we have a long time ahead before this.
I hope you’re right, my money is still on synthetic fuels and hydrogen rather than BEVs.
Bugattis issue is they don’t have a visionary at the helm and IMO they missed out on a 700k (just above RR) large coupe/convertible/sedan in the early 2010s. And now theyre missing out by not having a 1m cullinan answer.
Ferrari with Fiat before, now with Chrysler
Ferrari is "independent" now, as a public company - even though some of its significant shareholders are also significant shareholders of what is now Stellantis (Peugeot-Citroen-DS-Opel-Fiat-Chrysler-Jeep-Maserati...)
Back to Bugatti, latest news is that it is put under Porsche umbrella (similarly to Lamborghini being under Audi), and VW is working on a joint venture with Rimac (read from different sources, here is one https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a35865670/bugatti-porsche-rimac-tieups/)
When Bugatti was first acquired by VW Piech was not sure what he would do with the Brand. Then came the worlds fastest etc.. and it was uber exclusive top range market.
at the time it was thought that there would be more of a Porsche approach but a cost level higher - ultra expensive Veryron / Chiron... then next level at the $600K - 800K and then one below that at $150 - 250 K .... with larger production. obviously that is not going to happen, but if they do go EV - I think it would make the most sense to do it in tiers - W16 petrol/ Kers at the top, smaller engine middle with HYKERS, and then Full EV with tiny engine to provide range. all done in a mix of sports exotics, I doubt that will happen, but if you wanted to cash in on the brand that is the way forward. RIMAC has no name ... so badge them as Bugatti ...
