Bugatti Chiron successor to get a V16 Hybrid engine

Bugatti has officially confirmed the powertrain for its much-anticipated Chiron successor. The revelation that the new hypercar will feature a V16 hybrid engine marks a significant evolution from its predecessor, blending traditional combustion engine power with cutting-edge hybrid technology. This innovative combination promises to usher in a new era for the iconic brand, maintaining its legendary status in the realm of ultra-luxury sports cars.


A New Chapter in Engine Design

Bugatti’s decision to continue with a 16-cylinder engine, albeit in a V configuration rather than the W layout of its predecessors, signals a commitment to preserving the raw power and performance that the brand is renowned for. Mate Rimac, a key figure in the development of this new engine, highlighted the challenges of keeping combustion engine technology alive in an increasingly electric automotive landscape. Despite these challenges, Rimac’s vision for a “totally bonkers” combustion engine has now come to fruition, setting the stage for an exhilarating reveal scheduled for June.

The hybrid nature of the Chiron successor’s powertrain suggests a departure from traditional turbocharging, opting instead for electric torque fill to enhance performance. While specific details remain under wraps, the teaser hints at a highly strung engine note, distinct from the deeper growls of previous models. This shift hints at Bugatti’s innovative approach to achieving a harmonious blend of electrification and combustion, without sacrificing the exhilarating driving experience the brand is known for.

“With each generation of its hyper sports car, Bugatti has shifted the benchmark of design, engineering, performance and craftsmanship to new heights. And this year, eight years to the day since the Chiron was revealed, Bugatti shows the world the first page of the newest chapter in its rich history.” – Bugatti
