German high-performance automobile manufacturer Bugatti is set to reveal its own contribution to the Vision Gran Turismo project at next month’s International Motor Show in Frankfurt. Teased above, the conceptual design will be available to Gran Turismo 6 players sometime in the near future along with the rest of the current Vision lineup. Said Bugatti president Wolfgang Dürheimer:
Bugatti is the world’s most exclusive super sports car brand and Bugatti cars are only available to an extremely small group of automobile connoisseurs. At the same time Bugatti is admired and loved by countless people throughout the world. We highly appreciate this enthusiasm. The Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo will make our brand available to them as well as to gamers and high-performance aficionados throughout the world, only very few of whom will be able to afford a real Bugatti. They can all benefit from the success of our brand. This is a project for our fans.
The Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo is especially noteworthy in that it marks the debut of the imprint’s new design language following the end of the Veyron era; thus, the concept will offer up the first look at what can be expected from Bugatti’s next supercar. Said the head of the design team, Achim Anscheidt:
With the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo, we have not developed a fantasy product of the type which is normally seen in this category of the game. We had the clear goal of developing a vehicle which could also be driven on a real race circuit if it left the virtual world. Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo stands for authenticity… Bugatti’s design DNA has reached a new stage in its evolution. In view of the nature of the project, our concept car for Vision Gran Turismo will be exaggerated and performance-oriented. Even so, the progressive design language will give an impressive demonstration of the path to be taken by Bugatti design over the next few years.
The Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo will debut at IAA sometime between September 17 and 27.
