We know that Bugatti’s Vision Gran Turismo concept was revealed to preview the Chiron, but is there a chance the concept could make its way into production?
According to Alejandro Salomon, that could very well be the case, following discussions he’s had with Bugatti and some of its loyal customers.
It is thought that Bugatti is considering building around 20 units of the Vision Gran Turismo, slightly modified to meet road regulations and priced from between $5 million and $7 million. If true, that would make the Vision GT easily the most expensive production car of all time and make the $2.6 million Chiron look like chump change.
As if that wasn’t enough, it is claimed that Bugatti could enter the Vision GT into the Le Mans 24 Hours in about five years time looking to mimic the success of the iconic McLaren F1 GTR.
Demand for the car to hit the production line is thought to have come from loyal brand customers who’ve been blown away by the one-off concept that was recently sold to a Saudi prince.
As the Vision Gran Turismo shares the same underpinnings as the Chiron, it wouldn’t be difficult for Bugatti to produce it in limited numbers. Wth a price over double that of the Chiron and demand exceeding supply, it makes for a sound business case, too.
