A set of images surfaced online showing reportedly a Bugatti Chiron mule during what appears to be some crash testing.
Rumors suggesting that the company’s GT Vision Concept was nothing more than a first taste of the Veyron’s successor appears to be right, judging from what we can see on the leaked images coming from GTBoard.
From what we can see, the front headlights are much simpler than the ones we saw on the Vision GT Concept, with just two lighting elements under a clear cover instead of the four separate ones the concept used.
The car shown appears to be an empty shell with the photos revealing the lack of the interior and the driver’s door. Chances are that this is a prototype used for crash-testing and more specifically the one used for the side-impact test.
The new Bugatti Chiron is expected to use a 1500hp version of the quad-turbo 8.0-litre W16 powertrain with the help of some electric juice into the powertrain. Other reports say that the price for Bugatti’s new jewel is set at 2.2million € (around $2.5million), €650k more than the Veyron.
The new Bugatti Chiron is expected to make its official debut at next year’s Geneva Motor Show.
