Bugatti’s Track-Only Bolide Concept Is Now A $47M 40-Unit Production Car

Late last year, Bugatti unveiled the Bolide, an insanely high-performance, 300mph+ track-only concept car based on the Chiron. Fast forward roughly a year later to today, and the famed French firm has announced that, in response to immense interest shown from its elite customer base, Bugatti will now be turning the Bolide into what it calls a “few-off model” which will be available to a very lucky (and very affluent) few.

The production version of the Bolide will be powered by the same quad-turbo W16 engine, though the eight-liter mill now runs on 98 RON gas rather than 110-octane racing fuel — the former of which is much more widely available across the globe. As a result horsepower and torque are down by 248 and 185ft-lbs respectively, though the blown 16-banger is still good for 1,577hp and 1,180ft-lbs of torque. The hypercar also weighs less than 3,200lbs at the curb. To ensure safety at high speeds, Bugatti has bestowed the track-only machine with a six-point safety belt system supplemented via HANS system compatibility and an automatic fire extinguishing system, amongst other advanced safety features. Appropriately translating to “fireball” from Italian, the Bolide will be limited to just 40 units worldwide, each of which will be priced at €40M (or approximately $47,100,000) and will require several years to build, with deliveries expected to begin in 2024.

Purchase: $47,100,000
