The Bugatti Bolide is the most extreme hypercar the brand has ever produced. It is based on a bespoke carbon fibre monocoque, and rarely would anyone get to appreciate the work that’s gone into its creation.
Bugatti has now released a set of images that show the Bolide’s monocoque chassis in all its glory. With all the body panels off, the Bolide looks like a Le Mans prototype race car. In fact, the chassis has been developed to comply with LMh and LMDh regulations and meets all safety norms laid down by the FIA.
Bugatti’s legendary 8.0-liter W16 quad-turbocharged engine sits within the bowels of the carbon shell. It generates 1577 hp and 1180 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to a dry weight of just 1450 kg, this car has an insane power-to-weight ratio.
Only 40 examples of the Bugatti Bolide will be produced, each with a price tag of $4 million. The first deliveries of the Bolide are scheduled for 2024.
