New Bugatti coming on Oct 28 – an electric hypercar?

By Divyank Kushagra Bansal | on October 26, 2020

According to some reports, the new hypercar could mark the French marque's entry into the electric hypercar territory. 

Bugatti is all set to reveal its latest creation on October 28. However, this time, the folks at Molsheim are being particularly mysterious even with the teasers of the upcoming car. The first teaser only reveals the new taillight signature of the car, which is unlike anything Bugatti has done yet. The X-shaped LED design is markedly different than that of the Chiron.

The second teaser simply mentions the figure '0,67', which has left us even more confused. With no confirmed idea about what this figure represents, it leads us to believe that the new car could be an all-electric offering from Molsheim. According to some media reports, the figure could potentially be a reference to the new car’s power-to-weight ratio (in kW/kg). 

The electric hypercar theory can be further backed by recent reports of VW Group potentially planning a deal to sell off Bugatti to Rimac. If this is true, then it's not too difficult to imagine the new Bugatti hypercar being underpinned by the Rimac C_Two's 1888bhp electric powertrain. However, this is all speculative at the moment.

To shed some mystery around this new Bugatti model though, we've managed to catch hold of some spy shots of a test prototype on the Paul Ricard circuit. Based on these shots, the car looks like a track-only weapon, owing to the massive air intakes, huge rear wing and a hardcore rear diffuser. Other than this, we'll have to wait for the car's official debut on October 28 to know more.
