Bugatti Could Reveal a Rimac-Powered Electric Hypercar In October 2020

Bugatti Could Reveal a Rimac-Powered Electric Hypercar In October 2020

Bugatti is going all-electric and the first model could have close to 2,000 horsepower

Following rumors that the Volkswagen Group will sell the Bugatti brand to Croatian electric carmaker Rimac, it has now surfaced that the French brand will unveil a Rimac-powered hypercar in October 2020.

Bugatti’s first electric vehicle will be heavily inspired by the Vision Le Mans concept. Rumors also claim that it will be a track-only model and that it will be built in extremely limited numbers or might be a one-off.

Bugatti's Second Model Put on Hold Because the Dirty VAG Needs Money

Bugatti’s Second Model Put on Hold Because the Dirty VAG Needs Money

Well, don’t expect to see a Bugatti Gran tourer anytime soon

News of a second Bugatti model isn’t new – rumors have been circulating forever. Back in September 2019, for example, we heard that Bugatti was planning to make an SUV of sorts. A month later, we found out that the Galibier name could make a comeback as an electric sedan, just to be followed up by news that Bugatti was considering a “daily driver.” The problem is that everything Bugatti does has to be approved by the people over at VAG and, as it turns out, the company needs the money so, despite selling 250 examples of the Chiron and taking payments for another 150, Bugatti has to shelve its plans for a second model. Thanks, dirty VAG.

What in the World is this Strange Bugatti Chiron Test Mule Doing on the Road?

What in the World is this Strange Bugatti Chiron Test Mule Doing on the Road?

Bugatti may be testing a new Chiron, but we don’t know what it is yet

Introduced in 2016, the Bugatti Chiron has already spawned eight variations ranging from simple special-edition models to unique cars like the La Voiture Noire. But the supercar firm isn’t planning to stop just yet, and a new test mule spotted by our paparazzi proves just that. We don’t know what it is yet, but we’re looking at three different scenarios.

Bugatti Could Be Neck Deep In Building a One-Off Chiron Roadster

Bugatti Could Be Neck Deep In Building a One-Off Chiron Roadster

The Bugatti Chiron Roadster could be a one-off supercar priced at more than $10 million

Unlike the Bugatti Veyron, the Chiron has yet to spawn a targa version. The Chiron is already four years into its life cycle and it seems a bit unlikely that Bugatti will build a roadster, but a new report claims that the French firm is developing one as we speak. But unlike the Veyron Grand Sport, the Chiron roadster will be a one-off model.

We Could Soon Live in a World Where Bugatti Sells a Daily Driver

We Could Soon Live in a World Where Bugatti Sells a Daily Driver

The term “daily driver” holds a slightly different meaning here it seems

Fresh off the news about Bugatti planning more Chiron-based cars and only weeks after Bugatti teased a new supercar, we’re now learning that Bugatti could actually be focusing on a daily driver as a second model in its lineup. So far, there’s no word as to what shape this second model might take as Bugatti continues to insist that no decision has been made. There is, however, a toss up between whether this second model will be an all-electric sedan that wears the Galibier name or an SUV-like vehicle akin to that of the Bentley Bentayga or Lamborghini Urus. The question now is, when will Bugatti finally make the leap, and when will we see it?

Bugatti Just Teased a New Supercar - is it the Galibier or a new SUV?

Bugatti Just Teased a New Supercar - is it the Galibier or a new SUV?

Is Bugatti preparing a brand-new model or just another Chiron spin-off?

Bugatti doesn’t release many teasers, but that’s mostly because it doesn’t release many cars either. So when the French company posts a photo of a wrapped-up, shadowy car, it’s a big deal. Bugatti just did that on its Instagram profile, hinting that it may introduce a new supercar really soon. But is it new as in brand-new or just a different version of the current Chiron? Let’s find out.

Bugatti Could Bring Back the Galibier As an All-Electric Sedan if Volkswagen Approves

Bugatti Could Bring Back the Galibier As an All-Electric Sedan if Volkswagen Approves

The Bugatti Galibier is back in the rumour mill

At first a concept car like any other, the Galibieri quickly became the root for constant speculation on what might be Bugatti’s model. The two most forwarded possibilities where a sleek, super-luxurious sedan and a high-riding vehicle of sorts similar to the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, yet a new report from Bloomberg says that the Galibier could morph into a grand tourer or crossover motivated by an all-electric powertrain, provided Volkswagen AG greenlights the project.

Bugatti's Toying with the Idea of a New Model That Isn't an SUV, Except It Could Pass Off as an SUV

Bugatti’s Toying with the Idea of a New Model That Isn’t an SUV, Except It Could Pass Off as an SUV

Isn’t this just a case of semantics?

Bugatti’s desire to build up its lineup is one of the worst kept secrets in the auto industry. The French automaker wants to diversify its lineup with a model that will offer a completely different experience from the Chiron and all its derivatives. An SUV has been talked about so many times already, but it seems that Bugatti isn’t leaning in that direction, or at least that’s what it’s claiming.

Company boss Stephan Winkelmann recently talked to CAR Magazine and emphatically shot down rumors that Bugatti is considering developing an SUV. As far as what Bugatti is considering, let’s just say that even if it isn’t an SUV, it might actually be one anyway.

Bugatti Refuses to Move On From the Chiron But That Might Be Okay

Bugatti Refuses to Move On From the Chiron But That Might Be Okay

Bugatti seems to love the idea that it produces just one car in multiple variations and, to some extent, that’s okay in terms of exclusivity. But, isn’t it time that Bugatti actually comes up with something new as opposed to some slightly revised version of a car it started producing in 2016, based on a concept from 1999? Bet you forgot that, didn’t you? The Chiron is actually based on the 1999 Bugatti 18/3 Chiron Concept from nearly two decades ago. Back to the point at hand, Bugatti has, since the Chiron’s debut back in 2016, produced a handful of different variations, including the Chiron Sport, 110 Ans Bugatti, Chiron Super Sport 300+, Centodieci, and the La Voiture Noire one-off.

One would think that Bugatti had about done enough with the Chiron which was, by the way, limited to just 500 units when it was introduced a few years ago. But, Bugatti has different plans before it moves on to something totally new despite the realization that the Chiron can’t live on forever. The point is that if you were hoping to see an all-new Bugatti next year, or even in the next five years, you might want to let go and accept the fact that it isn’t going to happen. Here’s why…

Ettore Bugatti Is Probably Flopping in His Grave Over The News About a Bugatti SUV

Ettore Bugatti Is Probably Flopping in His Grave Over The News About a Bugatti SUV

An electric SUV would probably work if Bugatti develops it the right way

Bugatti, the purveyor of one of the world’s most extreme performance cars, has reportedly gotten weak in the knees at the prospect of doubling its entire model lineup, increasing its portfolio from one vehicle to two. As if having the mind-boggling Chiron hypercar in the fold isn’t enough, Bugatti is setting its sights on developing, of all things, an SUV. Mind you, it’s not just a regular SUV that Bugatti is starry-eyed about; the French automaker wants an electric SUV to form a formidable one-two punch with the Chiron. No word yet on whether this plan has any legs to it, but it seems that the people within the company are already working on laying the groundwork for its development. Somewhere, wherever he is, Ettore Bugatti must be scratching his chin wondering what an electric SUV would do to the status of his marquee.

Bugatti Has Designed an SUV - Will the Bean Counters Allow it to Happen and How Much Will it Cost?

It could be the most expensive SUV ever built!

Rumors that Bugatti may expand its lineup beyond the just one model have been flying around since the early days of the Veyron. The Galibier concept sparked rumors that Bugatti may add a luxury sedan, but reports claimed that an SUV might also be underway. Come 2019, and it turns out that Bugatti actually designed an SUV, but we can’t see it because it hasn’t been approved yet.

Now Bugatti Might Do An SUV, but It Won’t Be Based on an Existing VAG Platform

All-electric motivation and a greater emphasis on comfort could take the brand in a new direction

It’s no secret that we’re completely smitten by the Bugatti Chiron, the French brand’s latest and greatest über sports car. But, while the Chiron’s 1,479 horsepower and a 261-mph top speed are very impressive, the super coupe isn’t exactly a long-term product solution for Bugatti. Now, with an industry-wide shift towards EVs and growing demand for practical sport utility vehicles, Bugatti has expressed interest in adding a second model to its lineup, most likely with a new all-electric SUV.

Bugatti's Bouts with Nostalgia Could Bring Back the Royale Nameplate

Bugatti’s Bouts with Nostalgia Could Bring Back the Royale Nameplate

That all-electric daily driver Stephan Winkelmann was talking about could revive one of the company’s most iconic nameplates

Barely a week after Bugatti CEO Stephan Winkelmann confirmed plans of an all-electric Bugatti, a new report has shed more light on those plans, and it could involve the revival of one of Bugatti’s most famous nameplates. The new report comes courtesy of CAR Magazine, and it talks about Bugatti expanding its model portfolio with an electric limousine that could revive the Bugatti Royale nameplate. If this is what Winkelmann means by a daily driver, then color us intrigued. The model isn’t expected to arrive until 2023, so that gives Bugatti enough time to develop the model and make sure that it lives up to the stature of its own name. Knowing Bugatti, it’s going to have no problems doing just that.

Bugatti's Next New Model Could Be an All-Electric Daily Driver

Bugatti’s Next New Model Could Be an All-Electric Daily Driver

Bugatti introduced a concept earlier this decade that fits into what we think this model could turn into

Hot on the heels of unveiling the world’s most expensive new car, Bugatti is already looking towards its next project, and it might not be what most people expect. A new hypercar is seen as the default answer to any queries about a new Bugatti, but this proposed model doesn’t fall under that classification. Instead of a hypercar, Bugatti is looking to introduce a second and far more affordable model to its lineup, one that is characterized as a best-in-segment daily driver. More importantly, it’s an electric vehicle. There’s still no timetable for this proposed model, in large part because Bugatti’s big wigs have yet to make a decision on the car. If it does get the green light, don’t expect this Bugatti to feature Chiron-level power. It’s still going to be fast and powerful, but it will also put premium importance on luxury and comfort. Could this be the time that we finally see Bugatti dust off the Galibier name and bring it to life?

There's One Thing Bugatti Won't Do So Don't Hold Your Breath On This One

There’s One Thing Bugatti Won’t Do So Don’t Hold Your Breath On This One

We didn’t really expect Bugatti to go there so it’s not like we’re shocked that it closed the door on that one

Even if some of its peers have done it, Bugatti isn’t as keen on joining the SUV bandwagon. Actually, scratch that. The French luxury supercar brand has no intention of building an SUV, even as CEO Stephan Winkelmann admitted that the “time appears appropriate” for one. You can scratch those dreams of one day seeing a Bugatti SUV because it’s not happening. Bugatti is only the second automaker to completely rule out the possibility of an SUV one day. Instead of taking that route, the company will instead focus its attention on expanding its coachbuilding initiatives. It started with the Divo, but Winkelmann also said that more coach built models are on the way as the automaker celebrates its 110th anniversary. There’s an enormous amount of potential for Bugatti in this segment. Just don’t expect to see a coachbuilt SUV, either. That’s not happening.

2022 Bugatti SUV

2022 Bugatti SUV

Is the Lamborghini Urus about to be dethroned?

Ever since it was brought back to life in the late 1980s, Bugatti has offered only one vehicle at the time. And between the EB110 and the Veyron, there was a 10-year hiatus when the French built only concept cars. This strategy will end soon, as Bugatti finally seems ready to add a second vehicle to its current portfolio, in the form of a luxury, performance-oriented SUV.

Rumors about Bugatti planning to add a second vehicle to the lineup have been flying around ever since the company unveiled the 16C Galibier concept in 2009. For many years, it was believed the Bugatti would finally build a sedan, mostly because the French have developed no fewer than three four-door concept cars since the early 1990s. However, while Bugatti CEO Stephan Winkelmann thinks that a modern version of the Royale limousine would be popular, an SUV makes more sense financially. With that in mind, we rendered what the upcoming Bugatti SUV might look like and gathered all the information we know so far into a speculative review.

Bugatti Hopes To Pad its Lineup With an SUV After All

Bugatti Hopes To Pad its Lineup With an SUV After All

Does this mean we get to see a Koenigsegg, or a McLaren SUV in the future as well?

Bugatti is on a roll these days with new cars under its umbrella. With the Divo creating so much hype lately, Bugatti decided to switch the focus to some other news. The automaker has subtly stated that the Chiron could finally have a sibling, although not immediately. And, from what we can deduce, it will most likely be an SUV. Talk about the market trend affecting even the most exclusive automakers!

An Onslaught Of Special Edition Bugattis Could Be on Our Way

An Onslaught Of Special Edition Bugattis Could Be on Our Way

A Bugatti-Porsche collaboration is also heating up the rumor mill

Bugatti is reportedly looking to build on the success of the Divo with plans to build more special edition hypercars in the coming years. Word in the pipeline is that the French automaker is setting its sights on developing Superleggera, SS, and Aperta versions of the Chiron. This is the first time we’re hearing about an assault of special edition Chirons, but all these rumored cars are also just the tip of the iceberg. If the whispers are taken with more than a grain of salt, Bugatti could also launch a partnership with Porsche, Rimac, and Dallara to develop an electric vehicle.

Bugatti Looks to a Hybrid Future; Contemplates More Power From its W16

Bugatti Looks to a Hybrid Future; Contemplates More Power From its W16

Ok, The W16 will be around a little bit more

At the other end of life, at the other end of the universe, and at the other end of money people are actually thinking of increasing the power output of Bugatti’s W16 engine. You know - the one that produces 1479 horsepower for the Chiron, 1184 horsepower for the Veyron Super Sports, and 987 horsepower for the Veyron.

How to proceed? What will the future make of the famed 16-cylinder engine that was developed from that awesome Volkswagen W12? That question is occupying the great mind of Stephan Wilkenmann, Bugatti CEO, as he walks in his haute couture suits with a neverending smirk on his face.

Does it bother him? I would not say so as he just sold 40 Divos for 5.8 mil a pop even before unveiling the car. He could sell all remaining Chirons, too. Right now! However, he has to slow down and let the Chiron live its full life. That is more than 8 years.

What happens after that? The W16 will be too old, and according to Winkelmann’s talk from the Divo presentation, it already operates almost at the edge of its capacity. In other words, the W16 cannot churn much more power without sacrificing some of the reliability, or refinement. If it sacrifices any of it, it would not be a Bugatti then, would it?

Hello There! Are You The Bugatti Divo?

Hello There! Are You The Bugatti Divo?

Heavily wrapped Bugatti looks like the Chiron, but is it the Chiron?

A heavily wrapped

Bugatti Chiron

based prototype has been spotted at the Nurburgring, triggering alarm bells that this model could be none other than the limited edition Divo that Bugatti announced just last week. There are no indications that this test mule is, in fact, the Divo, but with little news on the front of other Chiron derivatives these days, it stands to reason that Bugatti wouldn’t send a prototype to the ‘Ring to do testing if it has no plans to do anything about it.

Bugatti Teases New Limited Edition Model of the Chiron Named “Divo”

Bugatti Teases New Limited Edition Model of the Chiron Named “Divo”

Trimming the fat on a four-wheeled heavyweight

The Bugatti Chiron exceeds at excess. The speed, the power, the price… any way you slice it, the Chiron is way over the top. However, despite this overarching emphasis on velocity, the Chiron was never a particularly agile vehicle, instead relying on its mammoth grip and high-tech AWD system to move the mass around an apex. Now, however, it looks like that might change, as the top bug is gearing up for a fresh limited-run edition that emphasizes cornering in a whole new way.

Bugatti Is Already Planning For the Chiron's Successor

Bugatti Is Already Planning For the Chiron’s Successor

CEO Wolgang Durheimer wants concrete plans by 2019

The Bugatti Chiron is only a year into its life and yet Bugatti is already making preparations for the supercar’s successor. That much was made clear by no less than CEO Wolfgang Durheimer, who told Road & Track about the company’s plans moving forward at the recently-concluded 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.

According to Durheimer, the business model for the Chiron is already set in stone. It will have a life-cycle of six years and the automaker’s waiting list for the supercar is now stretched out to four years. That means that of the 500 models that Bugatti is earmarking for the Chiron, 300 of them are already spoken for, leaving just 200 units up for grabs in the last two-and-a-half years of its production run. Remember, Bugatti only plans to build 70 Chirons a year, so even customers who recently ordered one aren’t likely to get their supercars until around 2021 or 2022. In the meantime, Bugatti is already looking to answer the question, “what’s next,” and that answer may come a lot sooner if Durheimer has something to say about it. The Bugatti CEO has said that the initial plans for the Chiron’s successor should be on the table by 2019, leaving the company with precious little time (a little over a year) to sift through all of its ideas before making a decision. It’s as definitive a statement as we’ve heard from Durheimer, who also shot down rumors of a lower-end Bugatti to complement the Chiron. "For the time I can oversee Bugatti, it will remain the ultimate product," he said. "Extremely high-end, very sharp, no compromise. The best materials, best technology, highest price. No rebates.” Sounds like a man who knows what he wants.
