The model is only for the race track, designed as a fiction car and capable of reaching a top speed of more than 500 km / h.
Bolide still uses a giant 8-liter engine block, generating 1,578 horsepower like the Centodieci or the Chiron Super Sport 300+. Bugatti has designed a racing fuel engine with a 110 octane rating, producing up to 1,825 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 1,850 Nm of torque from 2,000 rpm. In addition, the power is gained through the development of the new turbocharger.
Through various measures, engineers from Molsheim tried to reduce Bolide’s weight to only 1,240 kg, which is the equivalent of a European compact car. Bolide has a weight / power ratio of 0.67 kg / hp. However, this is only the dry weight of the vehicle, suggesting that the Bolide will be heavier when the necessary fluids and fuel are added.
With the power of the engine, the Bolide is likened to a rocket. Acceleration time 0-100 km / h in just 2.17 seconds; 0-200 km / h in 4.36 seconds; 0-300 km / h in 7.37 seconds and 0-400 km / h in 12.08 seconds. However, this is only a time in simulation calculations, the French car maker has not tested acceleration in real life.
According to the theory, Bugatti says the car has the ability to accelerate from 0 to 500 km / h is 20.16 seconds. The car ran through the Nürburgring race track in 5 minutes 23.1 seconds and the Le Mans track completed time was 3 minutes 7.1 seconds.
In terms of design, Bugatti is described as having the ability to change the outer shell to improve air resistance. The air intake cavity remains closed when the car is running at slow speed and opens when the accelerator is pressed.
Bolide is only 995 mm tall, about 300 mm lower than the standard Chiron, equivalent to the height of the Bugatti Type 35. Bolide impresses with the pair of X-shaped lights at the front and rear making the car look like car in science fiction movie.
Development time within eight months, Bolide still has no official price because the French carmaker has not decided to put it into production.
