Bugatti has confirmed the creation of a new vehicle – but this one is only available through the digital world.
“This is for our fans,” states an Aug. 19 press release from the French manufacturer, which announced the creation of their first vehicle for the video game series “Vision Gran Turismo.” The full view won’t be released until the Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA), which is scheduled from Sept. 17-27, but it will give us a look at the marque’s new design direction.
With the ‘Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo’, we have not developed a fantasy product of the type which is normally seen in this category of the game,” explained Achim Anscheidt, head of the Bugatti design team, in the release. The goal was to create a vehicle concept that, if it were to leave the virtual world, could realistically be taken to the racetrack.
The marque is joining the likes of Aston Martin, Mercedes-Benz, Infiniti, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and Chevrolet in crafting vehicles specifically for the video game. FCA was the most recent company to release a concept for the game. They introduced the SRT Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo June 3, an insane concept that creates a virtual 2,590 hp.

But the true idea behind creating this concept is for Bugatti to make their creations more available to a wider audience.
“Bugatti is the world’s most exclusive super sports car brand and Bugatti cars are only available to an extremely small group of automobile consumers,” said President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. Wolfgang Dürheimer in the release. “At the same time Bugatti is admired and loved by countless people… The ‘Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo’ will make our brand available to them as well as to gamers… This is a project for our fans.”
