Since it took up the torch from the Veyron in 2016, the Bugatti Chiron platform has seen all sorts of variants, each wilder than the last. From the record-breaking Super Sport to the ultra-exclusive Divo, the Chiron has shown just how versatile it can be. And now Bugatti has taken the reigns off once and for all.

Packing a whopping 1,825hp and 1,365lb-ft of torque, the new concept is called the Bolide. Its name comes from the French slang for “very fast car,” and given that it has a top speed in excess of 311mph and a 0-60mph sprint taking just 2.17s, it fits the bill nicely. In order to achieve such mind-boggling specs, Bugatti developed new quad turbochargers and engineered the Chiron’s 8.0L W16 to run on 110-octane racing fuel. And the Bolide isn’t some straight-line sprinter — with a suspension setup rated to 3.5 tonnes of force and grip expected up to 2.8 G’s, it’s a bonafide lap-slaying monster. But the most impressive feature of the Bolide is its exceptionally low weight. For though the Chiron weighs some 4,400lbs, the Bolide comes in at just 2,734lbs — about as much as the average compact car. Developed in just 8 months, pricing hasn’t been announced.
