W16 motor in Bugatti Chiron/Divo will be the last of its kind

W16 motor in Bugatti Chiron/Divo will be the last of its kind

> This engine was created as an evolution of the Volkswagen Group's W12

Bugatti CEO Stephan Winkelmann has told reporters that its W16 will be the last motor of its kind, and that the next-generation of this engine will not be developed.

That’s literally the end of the road for the W16, which was originally conceived more than 100 years ago. Bugatti put this tech to use in the Veyron with a quad-turbo 8.0-litre W16 that made 1000bhp. This figure ultimately rose to 1200bhp with the advent of the Veyron Super Sport. And eventually saw a substantial bump-up to 1500bhp in the Chiron and the Divo.

In the time to come, Bugatti will ultimately have to go the electrification way like everybody else, so that it can come to terms with the future stringent emission regulations. Winkelmann also rightfully added that although hybridization can be good, considering the weight of the batteries is falling, he pressed that the tech needs to offer the grunt equivalent of a W16, to be worthy of a Bugatti.
