Thanks for sharing. This will be very interesting. I'm curious to see the progress on it.

Did Bugatti take a vow to never build an attractive car ?

Very disappointing

Aerolithe57...My limited hunting & pecking on my phone keeps finding a 1999 concept car, which looks quite different, plus recent spy shots of a test mule. Do you know what, if any, similarity exists between these cars? The spy shots look, to my eye anyway, more like an updated Veyron than the concept car. Thanks...T

Seems to me like a Bugatti-fied Audi with a Lamborghini engine

I'm pretty sure these pictures are just renders by some artist, with a bit of inspiration from the 1999 Chiron concept and from the Veyron. I doubt the finished product will look anything like this.

Regarding the test mule, it seems obvious to me that the car is a Veyron Supersport fitted with some parts from the upcoming car. There are larger brakes, some new drivetrain components, etc. I don't think we will have any idea of what the new car will look like for a few more months at least.

Finally, I don't think the new car will have anything in common with the 1999 concept other than the name (if Bugatti even choose to use the name Chiron). Like Pierre Veyron, Chiron was a successful racing driver for Bugatti and it seems fitting that the name will be used on a production car and not confined to the history of a one-off concept.

I am a huge Bugatti fan because to me Bugatti has always been (from the original time under Ettore, to the EB110, to the Veyron) the ultimate expression of the automobile. I am so excited for the new car!

My thoughts exactly when I saw it. Was hoping for something that harkened back to classic Bugatti designs. Veyron may be a tough act to follow....T

hahaha! Reading that actually made me laugh out loud. There is no possible way the new car could leave the EB factory looking this terrible. Hard edges on a Bugatti?? Just doesn't compute in my brain...
