Bugatti Bolide won ‘Design Award’ in the Concept Cars and Prototypes class at this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este event.
The track monster is Bugatti’s answer to the upcoming Mercedes-AMG One and Aston Martin Valkyrie Hypercars.
The production version of the Bugatti Bolide is limited to just 40 units, with each costing four million euros ($4.6 million).
The Bugatti Bolide Hypercar won the coveted ‘Design Award’ in the Concept Cars and Prototypes class at this year’s prestigious Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este event held at the shores of Lake Como in Italy.
This award follows the title of Most Beautiful Hypercar of the Year the all-new track-focussed Bolide won last year in October during the 36th Festival Automobile International in Paris.
The Bolide Hypercar was first revealed in 2020 as the most extreme bugatti ever created by the french luxury marque. Bugatti’s answer to the Mercedes-AMG Project One and Aston Martin Valkyrie is designed to chase lap times rather than top speed records.
It is powered by Bugatti’s signature 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine, that produces 1,824 horsepower and 1,364 lb-ft of torque — when fueled with 110-octane race gas.
Bugatti says that the mind-blowing Bolide will do 0 to 62 mph in just 2.17 seconds, and will ultimately reach a top-speed “well above” 310 mph.
The production of Bugatti Bolide is limited to just 40 units at a net unit price of four million euros ( or about $4.6 million) each, with the first deliveries scheduled for 2024.
But the Bolide was just one of four Bugattis on display at the recently concluded gathering of the world’s finest vehicles by Lake Como, Italy.
The Bugatti Type 57S Vanvooren Cabriolet, owned by Andrew Pisker, won ‘Best of Show’ at the event, as well as top honors in Class A ‘The Golden Age of Elegance: The Art Deco Era of Motor Car Design.’
Other winners included a Type 59 Sports racing car, owned by designer Ralph Lauren. The car won the ‘FIVA Trophy’ for ‘Best Preserved Pre-War Car’ at the show.
