Revealed in June 2024, the Bugatti Tourbillon instantly captured the spotlight, overshadowing other automotive news for the month.

While the Veyron and Chiron, its predecessors, achieved immense commercial success with a combined production run of 950 units, the Tourbillon takes a decidedly more exclusive approach, limiting production to a mere 250 vehicles.

But the true intrigue lies in what lurks beneath the hood. In a bold departure from tradition, Bugatti abandons the iconic W16 engine that powered the Veyron and Chiron, instead forging a revolutionary path with the world’s first hybrid V16 powertrain with plug-in capabilities.

This ingenious concept, spearheaded by Bugatti’s new leader, Mate Rimac, a titan in the electric vehicle industry, imbues the Tourbillon with unparalleled flexibility.

Drivers can choose between gliding silently on electric power for a refined experience or unleashing the raw, unbridled might of the gasoline engine, transforming the Tourbillon into a true hypercar for all occasions.

Both exude a low-slung, aerodynamic form, but a closer look reveals a multitude of differentiating characteristics. At the rear, the Bolide breaks away from the Chiron’s conventional LED strip, opting for a more dramatic display.

Huy, renowned for his ability to seamlessly blend classic and contemporary aesthetics, infuses the iconic hypercar with a daring, futuristic vision.

The centerpiece of this reimagining is the extensive use of C-shaped LED lighting. These striking illuminations stretch dramatically across the vehicle’s front, creating a visually unified flow that seamlessly integrates the hood with the front spoiler lip.

But Huy’s reimagining goes beyond mere aesthetics. He understands the allure of the Bugatti brand a rich heritage balanced with a constant push towards innovation. By presenting the redesigned Tourbillon in a variety of color palettes, Huy doesn’t just showcase the versatility of his concept.
