Bugatti Reveals Over Rs. 110 Crore Tourbillon Hyper-Hybrid Car

Bugatti has revealed its latest model, the Bugatti Tourbillon, a powerful hybrid car with an impressive price tag. This new model is set to replace the $3.3 million Bugatti Chiron, which has a 1,500-horsepower engine.

Given the current trend in the auto industry and Bugatti’s merger with Rimac in 2021, many expected Bugatti to release an all-electric vehicle. Rimac, a Croatian company, is known for its all-electric Rimac Nevera supercar. However, Mate Rimac, the CEO of Bugatti Rimac, made it clear that they never planned to go fully electric with this new model.

Instead, Bugatti aimed to keep the essence of its traditional cars while incorporating modern technology to create a powerful plug-in hybrid. The goal was to blend the classic Bugatti experience with contemporary advancements.

The Bugatti Tourbillon, like the Chiron and Veyron before it, features a massive 16-cylinder gasoline engine. This engine was developed in collaboration with Cosworth, a British race car engineering firm. The hybrid system includes three powerful electric motors – one at the rear and two at the front. These electric motors alone can produce at least 800 horsepower.

When combined, the gasoline engine and electric motors deliver a total of 1,800 horsepower. This combination of power maintains the legacy of Bugatti’s mechanically powered cars while adding a modern twist with hybrid technology.
