Bugatti Tourbillon

Bugatti Tourbillon has a 8.3-litre V16 hybrid engine producing combined 1800 HP

Bugatti Tourbillon is the latest hypercar, a successor to the Chiron. The new model boasts a completely fresh design and innovative powertrain, setting a new benchmark in the hypercar segment.

The Bugatti Tourbillon is the first of the brand’s models to feature a hybrid V16 engine, replacing the W16 engine that powered both the Chiron and its predecessor, the Veyron. The 8.3-litre naturally aspirated V16 engine produces 1000 BHP and 900 Nm of torque. When combined with three electric motors, the total power output reaches an impressive 1800 BHP and 2300 Nm of torque. This powertrain is coupled with an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

Bugatti claims the Tourbillon can accelerate from 0-100 km/hr in just 2 seconds and from 0-299 km/hr in 10 seconds. The top speed is reported to be 445 km/hr, although Mate Rimac, CEO of Bugatti, hinted that the actual top speed might be even higher.

The design of the Tourbillon is entirely new, with no components borrowed from the Chiron. At the front, the hypercar features a large horseshoe-shaped grille flanked by quad LED headlamps. The signature spine runs along the center of the car and the ‘Bugatti Line’ gets a new interpretation on the sides. The rear of the car sports full-width LED tail lights with ‘Bugatti’ lettering at the centre and a massive diffuser at the bottom with quad exhaust tips.

Inside, the Tourbillon offers a refreshed cabin and dashboard layout with numerous analogue dials and controls. The gauge cluster is inspired by the mechanical movement in high-end watches. While a small display with Apple CarPlay connectivity is included, it remains hidden in the dashboard and is deployed only upon the driver’s request. A standout feature is the steering wheel, where the hub and gauges remain stationary while only the wheel itself rotates.

Bugatti plans to produce only 250 units of the Tourbillon, with each model priced starting at  €3,800,000 (Rs. 34 crores). The name ‘Tourbillon’ refers to a mechanism in high-end watches that helps maintain time accuracy, underscoring Bugatti’s commitment to precision and craftsmanship.

The Bugatti Tourbillon, described by Mate Rimac as “art on wheels, a moving painting,” represents a significant evolution for the brand. With its innovative hybrid V16 engine, striking design and luxurious interior, the Tourbillon is poised to make a profound impact in the hypercar market.
