Considering Rolls-Royce and Bugatti are now printing money with their high-riders, should Bugatti make an SUV of its own? The boss of the brand doesn't think so, but he's the same guy who was opposed to the Lamborghini Urus, and we have one of those already.
So if the bosses are against it, now come we're looking at a Bugatti SUV video with over half a million views on Instagram? Is this some kind of bootleg material. We kind of think of it that way and will explain why in a very roundabout way.

The video was published by bat.not.bad, the guy making those crazy supercar key fob videos that blow your mind. But it's based on a 3D model put together by Sajdin Germond which we showed you a while back. This happens to be the most interesting render seen by this editor all year. Besides the Bugatti SUV, the only other photos he's published on social media are of the Skoda Vision iV, an SUV-coupe concept from a company that's also part of the VW family.

Also, Sajdin's images are clearly of an all-electric SUV with the same kind of crazy rear vents you see on British concepts like the one Lotus recently released. The fishy part is that we only learned that a Bugatti SUV would have to be electric a few weeks after the rendering came out. So it could actually be a rejected but semi-official internal study.

So what do we think of the design? The knee-jerk reaction is that it wouldn't work. The trunk opening is tiny and strong shoulder lines would eat into interior space. But this is not a Bentayga rival. Don't forget that Bugatti is the company that can get away with asking 3 million dollars for their base model. They can sell just about anything provided that it sets land speed records and pleases princes from the Middle East. And we all know those guys have always been into 4x4s, the weirder the better.
