Bugatti has finally unleashed the Vision Gran Turismo concept set to premiere at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show. This is a “real show car” not just a virtual project for the GT6 video game and was developed as a tribute to the company’s 20s and 30s racecars which triumphed in the Le Mans 24-hour races. It’s obviously based on the latest technologies and acts as a sneak preview for the company’s long-awaited Veyron successor which is programmed to debut in production form at next year’s Geneva Motor Show. Getting back to the concept at hand, it was developed in collaboration with Polyphony Digital and has received eight-eyed LED headlights.
Also noticeable is the horse shoe front grille along with a fin for the front and rear wings as well as another fin that runs on the roof’s length. Technical specifications have not been released but most likely the vehicle has been envisioned with a hybridized version of the quad turbo W16 8.0-liter engine from the Veyron which should deliver close to 1,500 PS in the new model believed to be called Chiron after a concept released back in 1999.
Hopefully we will know more about Bugatti’s Vision Gran Turismo at IAA in Frankfurt which starts in less than two weeks.
