The Bugatti Bolide hypercar model with a design “from the future” and incredible speed begins to enter the performance testing phase before being delivered in 2024.

Bugatti Bolide was first introduced in October 2020, the hypercar was launched not to participate in racing nor to become a commercial car, Bolide has the task of showing the world the technology that Bugatti has. in hand and how it is applied in the car.

    

After 3 years of development, Bolide has also reached the final testing phase.

The design of Bugatti Bolide strictly follows the philosophy “Form follows Performace”. However, Bolide has made many changes compared to the concept to optimize performance. Especially when the car’s power reaches a “huge” level thanks to the iconic 8.0L W16 engine.

The front splitter ensures aerodynamics for the vehicle as well as optimal performance on the track. The mechanical rearview mirror uses camera technology similar to the concept version.

At the front of the car, the “X” lines are clearly visible when looking at the central body part or above the wheel arches. Bugatti’s familiar C-shaped line at the waist is streamlined, smaller and more angular.

Bolide’s navigation lights are X-shaped, a detail that the company shares is inspired by their most successful racing car, the Bugatti Type 35, with its headlights glued on to avoid breakage during racing.

Inspired by Formula 1 racing cars, this hypercar can create up to 1.8 tons of downforce in the rear spoiler and 800 kg in the front spoiler at a speed of 320 km/h. Both parts can be adjusted to many different levels manually.

The rear spoiler assembly is designed with absolute precision, helping the car adapt to different types of racing tracks.

The exhaust system has been upgraded to dual titanium exhaust pipes. Bolide also equips Michelin racing tires on LMDh models competing in the FIA World Endurance Championship.

The power of Bugatti Bolide comes from the 8.0L W16 engine block with a capacity of 1,600 horsepower. The car can corner with nearly 3 tons of pressure on the road surface.

In theory, Bugatti Bolide can easily accelerate to 100 km/h from a stationary position in 2.17 seconds, reach 200 km/h in 4.36 seconds, 300 km/h in 7.37 seconds, even 400 km/h in 12.08 seconds and 500 km/h in 20.16 seconds.

The maximum speed that this hypercar can achieve is over 500 km/h.

In addition to acceleration, Bugatti also said this will be the fastest car at the Le Mans racetrack (Circuit de la Sarthe) with a lap time of 3 minutes 7.1 seconds. On the Nurburgring, the car is expected to have a performance of about 5 minutes 23.1 seconds.

According to the plan, Bugatti Bolide will produce a limited number of 40 cars and will deliver them in 2024. Bolide’s price is 4 million Euro, equivalent to more than 4.3 million USD.
