Bugatti’s Latest Vehicle Looks Fit for a Jedi
It’s time to take your weekly dose of “what the heck?” But instead of coming from the darkest areas of the automotive web, this latest installment comes straight from one of the world’s most prestigious automotive brands: Bugatti. The French marque recently posted a photo of the tail lights of a (presumably) upcoming vehicle on its website with the caption “What if…?”, And we really have no idea what type of vehicle these lights are attached to. .
Bugatti is no stranger to the world of crazy concepts, however, and we wouldn’t be surprised if this image features the brand’s upcoming show car. Just look at Bugattis’ efforts in the late 90s and crazy concepts like the EB 218 and the wild-styled 18/3 Chiron – for the time. These days, Bugatti seems more interested in wild one-off projects than crazy concepts that never make it past the auto show booth, so it’s possible that the vehicle in this image could sell to a wealthy fan of the Mark.
Think about the incredible beauty of The Black Car which debuted in March of last year. The $ 18.9 million bug was created for a mystery shopper. It also provided further proof that Bugatti was very good at weaving carbon fiber into intricate shapes. The same goes for the Bugatti Centodieci (less attractive), of which Bugatti plans to produce only 10 copies.
Yet what does this latest Bugatti with its X-wing shaped tail lights tease? A brand new model? A concept car? A limited production variant of the Chiron? These are all fair guesses, but we can’t shake the feeling that this latest Bugatti may not be a physical car at all. In fact, we think it could be a digital vehicle, possibly a special edition available for players of the Gran Turismo or Forza series of video games.
Nor would it be the first time that a special Bugatti has been created specifically for a video game. Do you remember the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo?
