This is your first look at Bugatti’s V16-engined successor to the Chiron

We’ve got hold of a spy shot of Bugatti’s next hypercar, and it looks… colourful

Published: 26 Apr 2024

Hold the front page! In fact, hold the back page too. Hold all of the pages, because we’ve got our hands on a spy shot of Bugatti’s next hypercar.

Yep, this is your very first glimpse at the Chiron’s successor. Pretty proportions, aren’t they? The sweeping C remains in the side profile and is actually more pronounced than ever, while the rear diffuser looks like it might be the size of a whole Suzuki Swift. Pop-up rear spoiler and a traditional low nose too, plus a sweeping line of LED rear lights.

Of course, we already know that Bugatti is moving away from its old 8.0-litre quad-turbo W16 engine for this car, but rather than downsizing it’ll be replaced by an equally bonkers V16. Oh, and there will be hybrid assist to help bump up the power figure. We’d expect said figure to be considerable and the resulting acceleration to be mind-blowing. Obviously.

That’s about all we can deduce for now, but Bugatti has already promised a full reveal in June. In the meantime, why not click these blue words to listen to the V16 engine in action. Trust us, your ears will thank you later.
