Wallace said :

“The feeling when you come out of a corner, press the throttle, and experience that relentless surge of power is incomparable. You come out of that corner at 100km/h, and from there to 200km/h and then 300km/h is an absolute revelation. In that specific scenario, the Bolide would pull away from a Formula 1 car.”

The track-only Bolide can navigate through corners with complete precision. To ensure it is perfectly suited to circuit driving, Bugatti prioritized on cornering, traction, and braking over outright top speed.

For the purpose-built track-only Bolide hyper sports car, the only boundary is finding at straight long enough to reach 380km/h, according to Bugatti.

“For Bolide, the only boundary is finding at straight long enough to reach 380km/h, with straights on FIA approved tracks unable to exceed 2 km in length, with only a handful exceptions worldwide.”

With the test phase of the Bolide officially concluded, Bugatti has now shifted focus to series production of the 1,600-hp hypercar. Bolide is limited to just 40 examples worldwide, with each starting at four million euros ($4.6 million) before the addition of options.
