Front-Engined Bugatti Concept Looks Like the Ultimate Grand Tourer

No, few-offs/one-offs such as the Bugatti Divo, Centodieci and La Voiture Noire don't count as a second model line, simply because their new bodies conceal the mechanical side of the Chiron. However, rumors about Molsheim adding a second model are going strong.

Of course, everybody talks about a more practical approach for the newcomer and since SUVs are selling like hot cakes these days, the expectation is that the Volkswagen Group's crown jewel brand will give us a high-rider.

Then there's the 16C Galibier Concept, a super-saloon that was introduced back in 2009, but never made it into the showroom.

But what if Molsheim were to come up with a front-engined GT? Of course, this would move on to become the ultimate Grand Tourer, a title that might just weight as much as the practical assets it would throw out the window through its two-door configuration.

Besides, Bugatti's entire history is based on the driver sitting behind the engine and not the other way around.

Of course, this changed when Italian entrepreneur Romano Artioli revived the brand back in 1987, coming up with the EB110 in the early 90s, a model that has recently returned to the spotlights via the Centodieci (the latter, which means "110" in Italian, is basically a modern-day interpretation of the said 90s icon).

And while the Chiron and the Veyron have stuck to that recipe, the rendering we have here allows us to dram of blitzing the continent behind the wheel of such a GT.

Imagined by a digital artist called Serkan Budur, this concept mixes traditional Bugatti elements, such as the horseshoe grille, with sharp-looking bits, like the roof, which looks a bit like the kind of prototype racer-inspired solution Koenigsegg would use.

Would you be able to see the W16 pushing you forward from the driver's seat? Well, with that transparent engine cover, the answer had to be positive, even though the designers would have to work with some not-easy angles to allow this.
