Bugatti Lucifer Design Study

How do you succeed something that looks to be imminently irreplaceable?

That’s a question that everyone at Bugatti will be wondering when the time comes for the Bugatti Veyron to say farewell to all of us and give way to its successor. But if they are having some trouble thinking of a design for the Veyron successor, London-based designer Timur Bozca has a few ideas, including an odd choice of a name.

Bozca, an industrial designer from Coventry University of Automotive & Transport Design, understood that designing the supercar that would ultimately replace the iconic Veyron was easier said than done. So he went about working on a car that featured plenty of hard lines coupled with a more streamlined profile than the Veyron. Add a new front grille, a more aggressive fascia profile, and a touch of deep red and black, and you have Bozca’s work of art: the freakishly named Bugatti Lucifer.

Odd choice for a name notwithstanding, Bozca gave the Lucifer a powertrain that would make the Veyron proud: an 8.0-liter W16 engine that produces 1,001 horsepower and 890 lb/ft of torque mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with a top speed of somewhere in the neighborhood of 220 mph.

While we don’t necessarily agree with the name-of-choice, we have to give Timur Bozca some props for the craftily-designed Veyron successor because that is one mean-looking SOB.

This seems so interesting, but I would not agree with its name. Giving a name “lucifer” for such an awesome vehicle is such a bad idea.

What a remarkable name! Well, this one got to prove something with its name. The design and power of this car, is very tempting.

What really caught my attention is its name! Well, that is truly interesting and just like what they say, it has the looks of a very aggressive and authoritative sports car. Anyway, hoping to see this one soon.

A lucifer design? Huh, that is quite interesting! Well, upon seeing the side view of this, I can already say that it is actually a very aggressive vehicle. I hope that they would update this article soon.

Strange and aggressive isn’t this car? It looks so authoritative car, and very futuristic even. Still, a unique car invention.

I guess we need to wait for more years before they are going to make a production of this. The debut of the Bugatti Galibier is near.

really like the styling of the vehicle it more aggressive compare to the Veyron. The deliver power output of the car is quite impressive. Although I’m not sure if they are not going to make this into a production.

The figure performance of this car is lesser compare to the Veyron. The current production vehicle of Bugatti can deliver up to 1500 hp. Well, let’s just wait on this concept. I guess they will be making a redo before its debut in the future.

Well, I don’t think that Bugatti has already lined up this car for future production. They have announced recently, about the debut of Bugatti Galibier later in 2012. Well, I guess they will focus on that car.

I like its name, very aggressive. The design makes it look awesome and powerful, but I think this will not put into production because they can’t replace Veyron easily.

It’s a weird name for a car but as you see it, the devil style looks classy and awesome. Bugatti really has something to show at. Plus it has a powerful engine that produces 1,001 HP and 890 lb/ft of torque mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with a top speed of somewhere in the neighborhood of 220 mph. Great!

Yeah, you’re right. They really haven’t even hinted about a Veyron successor yet. It would probably several years before they go into that. But this one is really a nice design speculation.

Hey wait, Bugatti hasn’t announced that they are ending the Veyron’s production run, right? So they haven’t really said that they would actually be doing a successor to the car.

Hmm, it does have some sort of devilish feel to it, so the name would be quite apt. but seriously, this one actually looks much better than the Veyron. That one really looks hideous for my tastes.

Pretty odd choice for a name indeed. But this one actually seems to be rather apt. just one look on the design and you already know that this one baby is really going to be bad.

It seems that the figure performance of the newer model is quite powerful than the Veyron. And I just wonder if that would be the final design of the Lucifer? It’s quite a new look. BTW, I just wonder, why Bugatti have decided to make a successor for the Veyron and does it mean that they are going to kill its production.

Replacing the Veyron is easy to be said than done. We all know on how successful is this model and I think no one wants a successor for now..However, since they already have plans for a newer model, well, let’s just wait if it could actually out stand its predecessor.
