The Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo is a single-seater concept car developed by Bugatti and was manufactured in Molsheim, Alsace, France. The car was unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, a month after its teaser trailer was released, which was titled #imaginEBugatti. It was built under the Vision Gran Turismo project, and with its looks, influenced the Bugatti Chiron’s design language. The color scheme of the car is based on the 1937 Le Mans-winning Bugatti Type 57G Tank racer.
Designed by Achim Anscheidt, Sasha Selipanov, Etienne Salome, and Frank Heyl, the Vision Gran Turismo is a two-door concept car combining the looks of a road car and a LMP1 prototype. The Vision Gran Turismo belongs under the project of the same name. The Vision Gran Turismo contains the Bugatti Veyron’s W16, but has been enhanced to deliver more power, producing 1,650 hp (1,230 kW; 1,673 PS) and 1,165 lb·ft (1,580 N·m). The top speed has never been calculated in a real circuit, but using a virtual Circuit de la Sarthe simulator, the approximate top speed is 278 mph (447 km/h).
Only two people in the world have purchased and owned the Vision Gran Turismo since its unveiling. The car was originally bought by Prince Badr bin Saud of Saudi Arabia through a secret bid, along with a Bugatti Chiron that contained the same color scheme as the Vision Gran Turismo. The car was then subsequently sold to Hezy Shaked, Chairman and CSO of Tilly’s.
Taking the Vision Gran Turismo to service would cost the owner US$20,000, and one set of Michelin spare tires for the Vision Gran Turismo costs the owner US$93,000.
