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

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.

2019 Bugatti La Voiture Noire

2019 Bugatti La Voiture Noire

Bugatti’s latest Chiron-based hypercar pays tribute to the 1936 Type 57 Atlantic

The Bugatti La Voiture Noire is a one-off supercar based on the Chiron. Unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, it joins the Divo as a derivative from the already famous Chiron hypercar. The La Voiture Noire is a modern reinterpretation of the Type 57 SC Atlantic from the 1930s and was built to celebrate Bugatti’s 110th anniversary. Only one was made and sold for more than $12 million before taxes.

Unlike the Divo, a car that’s going to be built in 40 units, the La Voiture Noire will remain unique. This vehicle was created specifically for a Bugatti enthusiast that’s "fascinated by the Atlantic," a coupe that the French firm built in the 1930s. Despite the unique bodywork and detailing, the La Voiture Noir remains a standard Chiron under the hood, so performance is similar to the vehicle it is based on.

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?

How Can Bugatti Get Off Charging $18.9 Million for the 2019 La Voiture Noire

2019 La Voiture Noire Is A Contemporary Interpretation Of The $100+ Million Classic Car

Revealed at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show behind what seemed to be a rebarbative barrier and not a customary glass fence, the very black Bugatti La Voiture Noire become the most expensive car on earth. Its price is $18.9 million. The La Voiture Noire, a car that is a sort of a Buggati hommage to the stunning and super-rare Type 57 Atlantic, does look striking and almost otherworldly, but I am still pressed to justify its incredible value. In this article, I will explore how Bugatti can get off charging $18.9 million for the 2019 La Voiture Noire, an automobile more exclusive than the Bugatti Divo, and far more precious than the Bugatti Chiron. It is, still, directly linked to both of them.

Here's Rendered Proof That We Need a Bugatti La Voiture Noire Roadster

Here’s Rendered Proof That We Need a Bugatti La Voiture Noire Roadster

It’s never happening, but we can all still dream, right?

Bugatti promised to drop the mother lode at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, and it did just that with a number of jaw-dropping exotics, one of which was the La Voiture Noire. There are no words to describe the one-off La Voiture Noire. There are only superlatives. Lots and lots of superlatives. Described as the ideological successor to the iconic Bugatti Atlantic, the $18 million La Voiture Noire is the most expensive one-off production car in the world. At the very least, it’s worthy of all the attention it’s getting, including one from auto designer Nikita Aksyonov, who thought it slick to imagine what the La Voiture Noire would look like without its roof. A roadster version of the one-off supercar isn’t going to happen, but through Aksyonov’s rendering, we can at least see what it could look like in topless form.

Only one was made and it costs more than a classic Ferrari

Bugatti just unveiled a brand-new supercar based on the Chiron at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.

The $18-Million, One-Off Hypercar That Bugatti is Bringing to Geneva Could Be a Modern-Day Take on the Iconic 57 SC Atlantic

If that’s the case, it could be the "cheapest" Bugatti with the Atlantic name on it

Bugatti’s stand at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show is shaping up to be the go-to stand at the event now that the French automaker has let the cat out of the bag. A modern-day take on the iconic Bugatti 57 SC Atlantic is coming to Geneva, and if rumors are true, this could be the $18-million, one-off model that former Volkswagen Group chief Ferdinand Piëch commissioned Bugatti to build for him. No confirmation has been made on that front, but a 57 SC Atlantic-inspired Bugatti is bound for Geneva. That much has been confirmed by no less than the French automaker through a teaser image in its Facebook page with the description, “Jean Bugatti’s 57 SC Atlantic cannot be re-created, but what do you think? Can we translate its design language into the 21st century?” If it wasn’t clear before, it’s crystal clear now. All eyes will be on Bugatti at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.

This Rendering Shows the True Potential of What Bugatti Could do with the Divo

This Rendering Shows the True Potential of What Bugatti Could do with the Divo

The open-top layout makes the Divo look almost supple

Bugatti’s bonkers track weapon, the Divo, is the Chiron’s mad brother that’s been conceived to break lap records. Sadly, Bugatti won’t chop the roof off the Divo but, if it did, you’d end up with something close to Rain Prisk’s render, a machine that’s bent on ruining your hair.

We know Bugatti builds some of the most amazing cars the world has ever seen. Since it was brought back to life under Volkswagen ownership, the company founded by Ettore Bugatti managed to put out two awe-inspiring cars: the Veyron and the Chiron. In 2018, Bugatti launched the Divo, a hypercar "built for corners" based on the Chiron but with a very different look to it. It will probably not be the last special edition spawned by the Chiron but, thus far, it’s the most ludicrous the French manufacturer put out.

We know that this replica was created with over one million bricks. That’s old news. What we didn’t know is that most of the LEGO Chiron’s body is comprised of flexible sheets made of bricks that are shaped like triangles. That’s one of the many details you’ll learn from this 10-minute deep dive into what is arguably the sickest-looking full-scale model that LEGO has ever created.

Birds are whispering that a one-off, $18 million hypercar is in the works

Bugatti is no stranger to shaking up the industry when there’s an opportunity to do so. That “opportunity” could come sooner than we think because of rumors that the super luxury performance brand is developing a one-off creation for the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The whispered price of this one-off? $18 million. Details are still scarce at the point, but it is rumored that this one-off Bugatti has already been built. More importantly, it was built for Dr. Ferdinand Piëch, the former chairman of the Volkswagen Group, and is being launched as part of the automaker’s 110th-anniversary celebration.

Well this doesn’t happen every day

Having one rare pre-war Bugatti in your barn should be reason enough for anybody not to have to endure a life of hardship since these cars can fetch millions at auction. It’s, therefore, a bit of a mystery why a man from Belgium who had three of them (yes, that’s right, three) kept them despite by all accounts living under the poverty line for many years.
