Bugatti previews enigmatic new car ahead of Monterey debut
Bugatti will journey to The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering, with a shock up its sleeve. The French firm launched a brief video that previews a mysterious new mannequin on its social media channels, however the 12-second teaser movie asks extra questions than it solutions.
Let’s begin with what we see: The video zooms in on 4 horizontal LED strips that appear to be they’re both a headlight or a part of one. If we’re certainly taking a look at a headlight, the brand new mannequin seemingly steers away from borrowing styling cues from the Chiron, which wears horizontal models. Deciphering the varied hashtags is not a lot assist. Bugatti titled the video “Unlock an Icon” and hinted that it is “#OpeningUpNewHorizons.”

As for the remaining, effectively … your guess is pretty much as good as ours.
No matter we’re taking a look at, it is going to be the primary new Bugatti mannequin since Croatia-based Rimac took over the model in June 2021. Firm founder Mate Rimac pressured that Bugatti will not instantly drop piston-powered automobiles, and he additionally argued towards lazily taking the electrical Nevera and placing a Bugatti brand on it. Bugatti introduced in January 2022 that the Chiron is offered out, although the W16-powered coupe stays in manufacturing, so the automotive depicted within the preview video seemingly is not one other variant of it (like, say, the Tremendous Sport).
All of our questions might be answered when the subsequent addition to the Bugatti household makes its debut at 10:20 a.m. PDT this Friday, August 19, in Monterey, California. That is 1:20 p.m. in New York Metropolis and seven:20 p.m. in Bugatti’s hometown of Molsheim, France.
