The Bugatti company, though rolled out recently many novelties, still remains "brand of one model". The company's management is not against expanding the model range, but the company itself simply does not have enough money to develop something new and not to drop its status.
Rumor has it that the mighty Chiron in the coming years may join a four-door hypercar: once it happened at Porsche, why not get Bugatti? Moreover, the asset of the brand has an impressive concept Galibier (pictured).
However, as the head of the brand Stefan Winkelman said in an interview with Automotive News, it is easier said than done. The fact is that Bugatti does not want the novelty directly associated with the "Shiron" and thinking to develop something newer. And this requires outside funding, and, according to rumors, inside the company are thinking about the possibility of a public offering.
Interestingly, Bugatti is not going to follow the example of colleagues to build a pretentious electric car: according to Winkelman, the internal combustion engine still has sufficient potential. But electrification as one of possible strategies is viewed in line with hypothetical create another services they like or dislike-more affordable, than Chiron, supercar. It can be equipped with a hybrid power plant and make about three times cheaper than the current main model of the company.
By the way, according to rumors, announced just the other day Chiron Super Sport 300+, built based on the record hypercar, has almost sold out. Almost all 30 units planned for production found their owners in a few days after the announcement at an average price of 4 million euros.
And Herr Winkelmann also mentioned the possibility of combining luxury brands VAG group under a "single umbrella", noting that it will be"a unique phenomenon in the automotive industry." Whether really discussed this possibility or purely hypothetical, the head of Bugatti didn't explain. This mystery is great.
