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 car with the following statistics:
