Leaked online are digital renditions of what seems to be the Bugatti Bolide in its production-ready form. These screenshots are believed to be sourced from the yet-to-be-public configurator.
Initially unveiled as a concept in October 2020, the Bugatti Bolide is now set to go into production with planned deliveries for 2024. Throughout this time, the Bolide has undergone some alterations, though these are minor and the car will continue to be dedicated to the racetrack.
The most recent images reveal a notably smaller horseshoe grille with the vertical separator being replaced by a tow hook. The splitter element has also seen modifications, now featuring additional dive planes on both sides. Additionally, there are now four fender louvres instead of two, and the aero blades behind the wheels are simplified to a single element instead of the four present in the concept.
The roof scoop remains, however, the rearview cameras have been substituted with conventional mirrors. The car is now equipped with standard racing wheels fitted with Michelin rubber, replacing the previously seen fancy aero wheels.
Shifting to the rear of the car, the quad exhausts have been exchanged for two oval units placed alongside each other. The design of the rear diffuser has also undergone some changes, with three additional elements added to the bodywork forming the X-shape. Furthermore, Bugatti has overhauled the rear wing end plates while retaining the shark fin.
Another significant change is noticeable in the interior. The production-spec Bolide is expected to feature a much smaller and more compact steering wheel. Additionally, it boasts a digital dashboard consisting of three separate screens.
The Bugatti Bolide is powered by a heavily modified version of the 8.0-liter W16 engine from the Chiron, said to generate 1850 hp and 1364 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with a 7-speed DSG transmission and an all-wheel drive system.
The Bolide is claimed to possess a power-to-weight ratio of 0.67 kg/hp and can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 2.17 seconds, with an estimated top speed of around 328 mph.
