1,600hp Bugatti Bolide Quad-Turbo W16 Start Up


The Bugatti Bolide is a track-only sports car developed by Bugatti Engineering GmbH in Wolfsburg, Germany and manufactured in Molsheim, by French automobile manufacturer Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S., revealed online on October 28, 2020. According to Bugatti, the concept version of the Bolide is using the W16 engine with a weight-to-power-ratio of 0.91 kg/kW. Bugatti announced the Bolide would be the last car ever made with their W16 engine.

The main influence on the Bolide’s light curb weight is due to the monocoque and all of its components constructed with titanium, along with nearly all of the body panels constructed in carbon fiber.

Donning the aggressive design language of an LMP1 racecar specifically the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo concept, which preceded the Bolide, including the signature X-shape itself inspired by the Bell X-1 aircraft, the aerodynamics of the Bolide help it generate more than 2,630 kg of downforce at 320 km/h, with 1,810 kg at the rear wing and another 820 kg at the front wing.


The Bolide is built using the framework of the same 8-liter quad-turbo W16 engine and the 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission used in the Chiron, although upgrades to the W16 engine allow the Bolide to generate over 1,361 kW and 1,850 N⋅m of torque, 183 kW, more than the Chiron Super Sport 300+.
