A new Bugatti hypercar, named the Tourbillon, will succeed the Chiron as the company aims to extend its dominance of the high-end automotive sector and secure its place within parent company Volkswagen.

Earlier this year, the Chiron’s 500-car production run ended with the $3.9 million Chiron Super Sport. Meanwhile, the last of the W16-powered models — the Bolide and W16 Mistral — will be delivered later this year.

The €3.8 million ($4.1 million) Tourbillon — French for whirlwind — pairs a 1800 horsepower, 8.3 liter naturally aspirated V-16 engine developed by Cosworth to a new eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The hypercar also utilizes two electric motors — a first for the 115-year-old company. The Tourbillon can officially reach an electronically limited top speed of 445 kph (276 mph), though 300 mph+ speeds should technically be within reach. Finally, electric assistance means driving up to 37 miles without using the main power plant is possible.

“The Bugatti brand is about heritage, about craftsmanship, about artisan work, [and] a combustion engine very much still fits within the picture,” explained Bugatti Chief Executive Officer Mate Rimac. “We felt like people still want that craftsmanship of the combustion engine”.

An obvious highlight of the Tourbillon is its highly aesthetic and opulent interior. The center console uses crystal glass and aluminum to accentuate various dials and switches, while Swiss watchmakers were enlisted to create an intricate three-gauge instrument pod made from titanium, ruby, and sapphire.

Moving to the Tourbillon’s exterior, we see clean lines, a signature horseshoe shape, and “dihedral” doors. Finally, when using track mode, a hidden rear wing acts as an airbrake for greater stability while braking.

Bugatti’s executives have yet to discuss whether they will use their new hypercar to attempt another top-speed record. In total, 250 Tourbillons will be built, with deliveries beginning in 2026.
