The new Bolide track-only concept car is definitely the fastest Bugatti ever. No surprise, as the W16 quad-turbo engine produces 1825 horsepower and 1850 Nm, and car only weighs around 1240kg.
1825 horsepower and 1240 kg equates to an incredible 1.5 hp/kg power-to-weight ratio, which is better than almost anything else, including LMP1 and Formula 1!
There is no shortage of downforce either - the wing, the spoilers, and the huge diffuser are generating 1.8 tons of downforce at 320 km/h.
Body is made out of titanium, carbon fiber, and other lightweight materials, to reduce the weight and lower the center of gravity. The Bolide has 400 mm wide slicks at the back, to maximize grip in corners.
Bugatti claims the following acceleration figures and lap times "based on simulations" for the Bolide:
- 0-100 km/h in 2.17 seconds
- 0-200 km/h in 4.36 seconds
- 0-300 km/h in 7.37 seconds
- 0-400 km/h in 12 seconds
- 0-500 km/h in 20 seconds
- Top speed: 500+ km/h
