Now, we all know that the era Bugatti Veyron has come to an end. Heck, the French carmaker even posted a farewell video when they made the last one (chassis number 450).
Tears aside, it’s time to move forward and a new model to replace the Veyron is already in development and this could probably be our first look at what that model may look like, albeit just a view of one headlight and its windshield.
Posted on gtboard’s Instagram page are photos that purportedly show the replacement for the Veyron, tentatively known as the Chiron, as it undergoes crash testing.
Of course, there’s not a whole lot to go on based on what we see although the recessed headlights appear to be that found on the Vision Gran Turismo Concept that appeared in Frankfurt recently. Elsewhere, the car appears to be sleeker than its predecessor with a similar hood design as well. A chrome element is also seen just beyond the front intake.
Bugatti have already begun teasing its new model, said to make its debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show with rumours saying that an uprated version of the 8.0-litre quad-turbo W16 engine being the powerplant with around 1,500hp or more on tap. Hybridisation is also said to be in the works although no confirmation has been given on Bugatti’s end as of yet.
