Three days ago Bugatti released a teaser picture showing a pit stop. At that occasion some people commented on a possible Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo and I did not agree with them, but now… well, I was wrong.
Today, Bugatti posted this teaser picture — it seems to be the top, I think– on its Facebook page. yeah, Bugatti has developed a Vision Gran Turismo concept and it will be presented at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt next September.
“Bugatti is the world’s most exclusive super sports car brand and Bugatti cars are only available to an extremely small group of automobile connoisseurs. At the same time Bugatti is admired and loved by countless people throughout the world. We highly appreciate this enthusiasm. The ‘Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo’ will make our brand available to them as well as to gamers and high-performance aficionados throughout the world, only very few of whom will be able to afford a real Bugatti. They can all benefit from the success of our brand. This is a project for our fans.” says Wolfgang Dürheimer, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S.
Achim Anscheidt, head of the Bugatti design team, said:
“Bugatti’s design DNA has reached a new stage in its evolution, in view of the nature of the project, our concept car for Vision Gran Turismo will be exaggerated and performance-oriented. Even so, the progressive design language will give an impressive demonstration of the path to be taken by Bugatti design over the next few years.”
