Few cars managed to turn as many heads as the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo presented on the Concept Lawn at the weekend’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and rightfully so.
Only a single example of the Chiron-previewing model has been produced (and since sold) and the car’s radical design ensures it looks like no other Bugatti before it as it ditches flowing and sophisticated styling in favor of absurd aerodynamic aids and protruding lines.
The Vision Gran Turismo is thought to be powered by the same quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 engine as the Chiron, but the powerplant probably isn’t as refined as the production-spec Chiron’s. Nevertheless, the Vision GT runs and sounds incredibly mean on the move.
The model’s North American debut in Monterey could prove to be its final public outing before it heads off to its new home within the massive car collection of its Saudi owner.
