The Bugatti Bolide is a track-focused variant of the Bugatti Chiron hypercar.


Text originally from the Bugatti Bolide's Wikipedia page.

The Bolide is built from the ground up using the framework of the same 8-liter quad-turbo W16 engine and the 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission used in the Chiron. Further development of the W16 engine allows the Bolide to generate well over 1,824 hp (1360.6 kW) and 1,850 nm (1,364.5 lb-ft) of torque, 277 hp (281 PS) more than the Chiron Super Sport 300+. This increase in power can be attributed to bigger blades in the turbochargers and the different orientation of the turbochargers themselves, allowing for maximum power. Combining the fact that the curb weight of the car is only 1,240 kg (2,733.4 lb), the Bolide can accelerate from 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.2 seconds, 0-124 mph (200 km/h) in 4.4 seconds, 0-186 mph (300 km/h) in 7.4 seconds, 0-249 mph (400 km/h) in 12.1 seconds, and 0-311 mph (500 km/h) in 20.1 seconds, along with a top speed projected at more than 311 mph (500 km/h) and a power-to-weight ratio of 0.67 horsepower per pound. Additionally, Bugatti states that the Bolide has a 0-249-0 mph (0-400-0 km/h) of 24.62 seconds, and a 0-311-0 mph (0-500-0 km/h) time of 33.62 seconds. According to Bugatti, computer simulations show that the Bolide could lap the Nürburgring in 5 minutes and 23.1 seconds, making it just four seconds slower than the current record holder, the Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo.

The Bugatti Bolide was added in the 2021 Summer Update as a high Class S ULTIMATE car with the following statistics:

  • ULTIMATE rank: 1862
  • Tuning Kit bonus: +56
  • Nitro Efficiency: 7/11.5/15
    • This was originally 7.5/12/15.5, but it was buffed a week after car's debut at the request of A8 YouTuber Super Goku Black.


The Bugatti Bolide has fast acceleration, a very high total top speed, an extremely high raw top speed (TS without nitro), very good handling, mediocre drifting, and decent nitro efficiency. Originally, the Bolide's nitro efficiency was more mediocre, but it was buffed very quickly, hence, most players don't remember it having the old nitro efficiency.

The Bolide's overall performance can be described as a combination of the 2018 McLaren X2 and the Koenigsegg Jesko. Similarly to the X2, the Bolide's handling far outclasses its drifting, although its drifting is still not the worst (its drifting can be described as "semi-wide"). Meanwhile, the Bolide has similar acceleration to the X2; not quite as fast as the Lamborghini Centenario's, for example, but still competitive nonetheless. Similarly to the X2, the Bolide's acceleration is faster in the first half and slower in the second half (which is the opposite of the Pininfarina Battista's and Rimac C_Two's accelerations, which are slower in the first half and faster in the second half). The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ accelerates significantly faster than both the Bolide and the Centenario.

In comparison to the Jesko, the Bolide has significantly better acceleration, making it a more balanced car overall. The similarity with the Jesko is mainly the special high raw top speed characteristic that is shared between these two cars, as well as the ULTIMATE status of both cars. The Jesko has a higher total top speed than the Bolide as well as a slightly higher raw top speed. The Jesko also has slightly better nitro efficiency than the Bolide overall, although the advantage is negligible.

Similarly to the Jesko, the Bolide drifts faster than most other cars, on account of its extremely high raw top speed. Essentially, the Bolide loses less speed whilst drifting. This is especially noticeable in areas such as the Azure Coast "S-Curve" drifts. Bear in mind that the Bolide's semi-wide drifting partially impedes this ability, making the Jesko better in this regard overall, except in areas where the drifts are relatively "shallow" albeit still required (the Bolide's strong handling can be used to help drift-punch), such as in various parts of Transylvania.


The Bugatti Bolide is useful for Gauntlet mode as a support car on many tracks, and it also functions well as an accelerator on a handful of tracks, such as Azure Coast Reverse, Orbital Loop: Satellite Rush, Rio de Janeiro: Highland View, and Transylvania: Citadel Clash (as well as Clifftop Run and The King's Highway). The tracks where the Bolide is a good accelerator are mainly tracks that involve difficult handling and moderately-difficult drifting. Anywhere with extreme drifting is not good for the Bolide, such as Munich Subway: Mosaic Motorway, Sector 8 Reverse, and Tenerife: Mount Teide. Also, in open spaces, such as on Area 51: Route 375-1, Azure Coast Forward, and French Guiana Forward, the Chiron SS300+ easily accelerates faster than the Bolide (meanwhile, the Centenario and others accelerate slightly faster).

The Bolide's usefulness as a support car in Gauntlet mode mainly boils down to its extremely high raw top speed, which often assists which nitro conservation or scarcity. If this particular performance area is not needed, then the Bolide can be switched out for another car with better handling+drifting, like the McLaren Senna, or with better nitro efficiency, like the Bugatti La Voiture Noire. One area where the Bolide's high raw top speed is very useful is in position two of Sector 8 Forward. In this area, the car has to jump through a portal, after which the speed drops to a fixed point. Cars that have lower RTS end up exiting the portal with lower speeds, so, naturally, the Bolide ends up with a lot more speed coming out of this portal than, say, the Centenario. This is a major advantage, shared by the Jesko, Chiron SS300+, Arash AF10, and Devel Sixteen Prototype (as well as the Koenigsegg Agera RS and TRION NEMESIS, to lesser extents).

The high raw top speed of the Bolide is also a major advantage in Sprint Tournament Time-Limited Events (TLEs). At the beginnings of Sprints, the car's speed is already brought up to a fixed point (between ~85% and ~95% of the TTS); the AI (artificial intelligence; robot racer) essentially partially accelerates for you before the starting line. Cars that possess a higher RTS end up starting in front of cars that have a lower RTS (i.e. ~95% of the TTS, instead of the standard ~85%), in a similar fashion to the Sector 8 portals. This partially explains why Jeskos and Bolides tend to dominate the leaderboards of Sprint TLEs (they also have great performance all-around, but this is the icing on the cake). The Bolide is also a good choice for various standard TLEs.

The Bolide has great overall performance for Multiplayer (World Series). It has balanced performance in all areas, including acceleration, total top speed, raw top speed, handling+drifting, and nitro efficiency.
