Hence. hementing its position as Bugatti’s lightest and most aerodynamic concept car to date. With only 40 units set to be produced, each carrying an eye-watering price tag of £3.44M. The Bolide will undoubtedly remain a rare marvel of automotive engineering.
This summer, the Bugatti Bolide made unforgettable guest appearances at two prestigious events: Le Mans and the Goodwood Festival of Speed. At Le Mans, the hypercar impressed a crowd of 350,000 visitors during its first public showcase. Behind the wheel was none other than Le Mans winner Andy Wallace. Who showcased the Bolide’s skill and set an awe-inspiring track time of 3 minutes and 7.1 seconds in simulations. The hypercar’s speed is even more astonishing when compared to the lap time of the Ferrari 499p hypercar at 3 minutes and 22.9 seconds, firmly establishing the Bolide as a true speed demon.
Continuing its parade of power, the Bugatti Bolide graced the Goodwood Festival of Speed, taking on the iconic hill climb with vigor. As a track-only car, the Bolide faces no restrictions from road regulations or racing rules. Allowing it to showcase its sheer power and performance capabilities.
