As we count the days before the Bugatti Chiron will be released to its expectant owners, the Bugatti designers will carry the burden of designing another super car to fit the needs of its affluent client roster. It will be a great mountain to climb indeed, and they need all the skill and luck to top their latest release. Recently an expert renderer teased the public of yet another Bugatti vehicle design, and yet we can only dream of it.
The new Bugatti Chiron was unveiled to us at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show and is now considered as the world's fastest, most powerful production car to be ever released. How fast, you ask? This supercar of epic proportions is powered by the extensively updated version of the Veyron's 8.0 quad turbo W16 and produces what is regarded by the automotive company as the fastest speed yet from a production car: a mind boggling 1,500 metric hP (1480 bhp) and its max torque is shockingly massive with 1180 ft, spread in between 2,000 and 6,000 rpm.
Reported top speed of the Chiron is electronically conditional for road use, estimated to 420 kh/h (261 mph) due to its tire durability. And now it has been deemed one of the inspiration of the imagined Bugatti supercar, dubbed "Bugatti Type 57 T", and the render is breathtakingly beautiful. The Bugatti Type 57 T concept was conceived by Palestinian automotive artist and exterior designer Arthur B. Nustas. From the looks of it, you can tell that he based his concept on the new Chiron and the vintage line-up of cars including the original Type 57 of the 1930 s and 40s, combining the retro and the modern design with such impact.
The lengthy, sweeping hood indicates the 57 T will possibly have a front-engine, rear or all wheel drive blueprint- completely opposite to the Chiron's mid-engine, all wheel drive setup. It is also designed with triangular bonnet flaps that readily open to reveal the heart of the car, which is expected to be a hybrid one. The Type 57 T is expected to be built for cruising as identical to the Bugatti Galibier layout revealed previously in 2009, which the type 57 T will be at close clash with grand tourers in the likes of Rolls-Royce Wraith and Bentley Continental.
An interior render is also shown, and sports the same glisten and exclusivity the exterior has. There's an interior C-Shaped separator that slightly splits the driver cabin from the passenger's. There’s an abundance of leather, with the classic chrome being changed to rose gold finishes, giving it a high class feel. The front grille has an embedded number 09 in the center with 2 distinctive fog light fixtures to cap off the aesthetic touches of the alluring render.
Futuristic as it seems, as of now we can only wait if Bugatti approves this design for production. We hope the design isn’t too much for them to handle. And if this does get built, lucky are the ones who can score this car of the century.
