Reports and rumors about a possible Bugatti SUV have been circulating for quite some time, but CEO Stephan Winkelmann has made it clear that such a model is not in his company’s plans.
While talking about the brand, which celebrates its 110th anniversary this year, Winkelmann simply said that “there will be no SUV from Bugatti”, as such a vehicle “would not do justice to the brand or its history”. Anyone from Ferrari listening? Well, whatever…
Still, more Bugattis are in development, and some of them will be presented this year, as part of their anniversary celebrations. We wouldn’t hold our breath for the rumored four-door coupe, however, despite the mysterious model scooped last year, as in all likelihood these will be special editions of the Chiron, and perhaps the Divo, too.
“Top speed alone is not the top priority for Bugatti. Our cars can do more than accelerate incredibly powerfully and drive very, very fast.”
That said, the company will focus on completing the entire production run of the Chiron for now. Unveiled two years ago, it will be assembled until 2021, when the 500th and final example will leave the factory.
As for the much more exclusive Divo, which is limited to 40 units, it will be put together in the same facility that makes the Chiron, in Molsheim, Alsace, France, and the first cars will be delivered to customers next year.
