Let’s face it, the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo looks so amazing, it would have been a crime for the French hypercar manufacturer to only let it exist digitally.
Design-wise, the Bugatti Vision GT is what we’d call a show stopper. Even though it’s not a real car ‘per se’, people who visited the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show were able to admire it in person. Those who like to use their imagination, can also see a bit of Bugatti’s next hypercar in the Vision Gran Turismo – since the project actually showcases the company’s new design language.
As one of our readers pointed out yesterday, the Vision GT does kind of take us back to the Citroen Voltage in terms of aesthetics, though you would need to make yourself see the resemblance rather than the differences between the two.
Another cool fact is that Bugatti has already confirmed a few performance figures for us, saying that the Vision Gran Turismo can (hypothetically) hit speeds of over 400 km/h (250 mph) thanks to the legendary W16 power unit.
If we were to nitpick, we might say that in the hypercar realm, 400 km/h (250 mph) isn’t news anymore, since a couple of rival models are also capable of such speeds.
To name a few, we have Koenigsegg (a whole bunch of different versions actually), the Hennessey Venom GT, the Veyron of course, and if you want to get cheeky, you can add those psychotic UR or AMS-tuned Lambos and GT-Rs.
Even so, the hypercar segment would undoubtedly be even cooler if this thing suddenly “came to life”.
