Bugatti design engineers sure know how to keep fans happy. The French super sports car brand will be presenting its virtual concept Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo, which it developed in cooperation with Polyphony Digital Inc., creator of the Gran Turismo video game franchise, as a real show car. We will get to see it in the metal at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show this month.
For now, we make do with the first digital renderings of the car by Bugatti.
Design Speak: One can find unmistakable traces of the Bugatti's design DNA on this car. The most noticeable one being the horseshoe on the front grille. The horseshoe is flanked by the eight-eyed headlights, which were developed especially for the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo.
Top view: The designers employ two versions of the fin on the Bugatti VGT: one on the front and rear wings contributing to car’s dynamic stability. The NACA air intake, which, with its contrasting light blue finish makes a crucial contribution to the control of the aerodynamic conditions on top of and at the rear of the car.
In the cabin: The interior is designed to meet racing requirements. All indicators, displays and controls are located where a race-car driver expects them – easy to read and easy to reach. The blue colour makes its presence known in the cockpit as well. The seat, meanwhile, gets the Bugatti logo.
Side profile: The Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo is characterised by the famous Bugatti line. Its form is dominated by large convex surfaces in contrast to concave transitions and strong lines. The proportions of the car are athletic and shaped to meet the car’s performance goals.
Rear View: The car has a strong trailing edge which provides great longitudinal dynamic stability, exhausts the hot air from the engine compartment and, no less important, communicates to the pursuer in the video game that a Bugatti is getting away from him.
