The Chiron is arguably the most spectacular car on Earth. Its 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W16 produces 1,500 PS (1,479 HP) and 1,600 Nm (1,180 lb-ft) of torque, which is certainly enough to put it in the conversation for “greatest hypercar ever.”
While Bugatti has worked a lot on improving the Chiron’s driving feel compared to the somewhat sterile Veyron, it has played it safe with the styling, opting for a sleek update of, more or less, the same theme. Which may or may not be everyone’s cup of Earl Grey, especially compared to more daring rivals like the Koenigsegg Jesko, for instance.
Well, this rendering by Invisive looks to change all that thanks to its “dramatic” exterior.
According to the designer, the idea behind the Type 103, as it is named, was to “take the classic Bugatti ‘C’ line and play with it and see what the result would be, tying in the rest of the shapes after establishing the main lines and providing some drama to the overall shape of the body with the help of interesting proportions and structure while still making it identifiable with the French brand.”
Immediately we notice that this render has a more aggressive appearance, with squinty headlights and a visibly larger front grille. Move to the sides and you can see a new door design and a more of a closed loop ‘C’ line. Which, for what it’s worth, we don’t think works that well on the Chiron’s shape. But that’s just us; what say you?
