"This project showcases Bugatti's new design language, which we have developed to celebrate this new chapter in our company history."

According to Bugatti the concept is the first phase in their new journey. The journey will take Bugatti on a successful completion of its Veyron chapter. The concept will lead a line for Bugatti to unveil many super sports cars in the not too distant future. The announcement was made by Wolfgang Dürheimer, the President of Bugatti.
"Our Veyron series was limited to 450 vehicles, all of which are now owned by proud automotive connoisseurs," says the Bugatti President. "However, our fans, who love the brand and have remained loyal to us for years throughout the world, are unlimited in number. This project is our way of thanking them for their loyalty and enthusiasm."
"Having met the team at Bugatti, I can honestly say that the way they challenge limits, the way they try to push beyond boundaries, feels so similar to the way Gran Turismo attempts to go the extra mile in everything it does”, says Kazunori Yamauchi, Senior Vice President of Sony Computer Entertainment and President of Polyphony Digital, who has created the world’s most successful video racing franchise. “For us, the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo greatly enriches the Gran Turismo offering. It is an exciting and cool car and I am proud to have it on board“.
The design of the car has shown the brand's future design language. The design is inspired by the Le Mans in the 20’s and 30’s. The blue paint of the car is a tribute to the French race cars of the era. The concept is a race car that evolves the look of the Veyron. The nose sports LED lights in the concept. Bugatti engineers expect the new concept to be able to hit over 250 miles per hour in four sections at Le Mans.
"Bugatti's design DNA has reached a new stage in its evolution," says Achim Anscheidt, head of the Bugatti design team. "Given the nature of the project, our concept car for Vision Gran Turismo is overstated and pushes performance to the limits, but its progressive design language will clearly show the direction that Bugatti's design will take in the coming years."
"We wanted to make the project as realistic as possible for our fans, and to introduce a real Bugatti to the virtual world of the PlayStation video game franchise," explains Frank Heyl, head of exterior design for production development at Bugatti. "Every design feature has a purpose. Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo is a successful symbiosis of technology and aesthetics."
"To pay homage to the victories in Le Mans, we definitely wanted to design a modern vehicle to convey the atmosphere of those special moments in Bugatti's history, rather than create a retro-style race car," explains Sasha Selipanov, head of exterior design creative development. "As an unabashed Gran Turismo fan, it's a great adventure for me to bring a brand that was once so successful in racing back to the virtual track."
