Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo Marks Online Debut, Comes to Celebrate Bugatti's LeMans Career

Now's the time to throw away the teaser pictures Bugatti has been serving in the past days and focus on the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo as a whole.

Finally, we don't have to use our imagination in the attempt to guess how will the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo look like by only relying on the pictures released by the carmaker.

Yesterday, when Bugatti teased a wheel and the front spoiler, we were convinced their Vision Gran Turismo will wear racecar clothing. And we were not wrong, but to us, the prototype is a bit ugly and a bit fat. Other than that, it sure looks like a Bugatti, and you're able to spot that from like, ten miles away.

Now, if you look at the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo from the back, your eyes will finally get the candy they want, although the virtual racecar's rear end looks like it was inspired from what the McLaren P1 has to offer in this department.

Nonetheless, Bugatti tells us this particular project is their tribute to the brand's racing legacy, with direct reference to the 1920s and 1930s and its victories in Le Mans 24 Hour races.

They also seem to have enjoyed working on the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo.

“The Bugatti design team normally works only for the exclusive and very distinguished circle of the brand’s customers. Now Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo has given us the opportunity, for the first time, to do something special for our fans as well,” explained Achim Anscheidt, the head of Bugatti Design. “When the target group suddenly grows from 450 Veyron owners to several million fans, gamers and high performance aficionados, it is a very exciting matter. We had a lot of fun with this project.”

But there's a downfall to this. They don't get to tell us more about the racer's specs. Yes, we know it's the virtual world we're talking about here and in-game horsepower and torque don't matter in real life, but we were curious to see what kind of grunt should hide under that menacing body kit. We'll see the concept in the metal in Frankfurt, so maybe we'll know more then.
