Supercar maker Bugatti unveiled its latest concept car, the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo at the Frankfurt Motor Show this week.
The car is essentially a video game concept designed for Playstation’s popular Gran Turismo franchise and obviously over the top in terms of its radical styling. However, the fact that Bugatti actually built a real-life example for the show means the car can likely provide a few clues to Bugatti’s intentions for future production vehicles.
“Given the nature of the project, our concept car for Vision Gran Turismo is overstated and pushes performance to the limits,” said Achim Anscheidt, head of the Bugatti design team, “but its progressive design language will clearly show the direction that Bugatti’s design will take in the coming years.
“For Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo, we’ve geared every parameter to maximum performance, unlike with our production car, where it goes without saying that comfort and easy handling are also key factors,” explained head of chassis development Florian Umbach.
Bugatti announced the sale of the 450th and final Veyron, its last production car, in February of this year.
