Bugatti unveils a super light hypercar can top 500 kmph

Bugatti unveils a super light hypercar can top 500 kmph

Bugatti unveiled its over 1,800-horsepower technological concept hypercar called Bugatti Bolide. The hypercar comes with a weight-to-power ratio of 0.67 kg per PS and features a W16 engine with 1,850 PS. The engine has an 8.0-litre and 16-cylinder capacity. The Bugatti Bolide weighs 1,240 kilograms. Bugatti says that the new Bolide achieves figures that are almost on par with Formula 1 while the top speed is above 500 kilometres per hour. The carmaker claims that the hypercar does all of this without compromising maximum handling and maximum agility.

The Bugatti Bolide takes 3:07.1 minutes to complete a lap of Le Mans and 5:23.1 minutes to get around the Nordschleife, the French automaker said in a release.

“We asked ourselves how we could realise the mighty W16 engine as a technical symbol of the brand in its purest form – with solely four wheels, engine, gearbox, steering wheel and, as the only luxury, two seats. Important aspects of our considerations were fine-tuning our iconic powertrain without any limitations as regards the weight-to-power ratio. These considerations resulted in the Bugatti Bolide. An uncompromising experiment, a thoroughbred, a Pur Sang that, in its brute exclusivity, impresses above all with high performance, low weight, and a driving experience in a whole new dimension. Driving the Bolide is like riding on a cannonball.” Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti, said in the company statement.

The company explains that to achieve a weight of 1,240 kilograms, all the stops have been pulled out with regard to the materials and production processes used. All the screw and fastening elements of the Bugatti Bolide are made completely out of titanium. In addition, hollow, thin-walled functional components made of an aerospace titanium alloy are used in many places. Read More...
