This car is tied much more intricately into Bugatti’s next on the road steps than many will give it credit. In the engine bay of the “Vision Gran Turismo” is the famed “16.4” 8 litre quad turbo 16 cylinder engine which is likely that of the upcoming Veyron successor. This is in all likelihood is that car re-dressed in the paraphernalia of the Vision GT programme.

The elegant blue colour scheme echoes that of the Type 57 G that won 1937s Le Mans 24 hours.

Vision GT is obviously an in game only vehicle, but it’s legacy will translate onto the road next year when the Veyron successor is revealed at Geneva. For now this spectacular expression of the gap that can be bridged between virtual fiction and on the road reality in a super sports car context will be on display at Frankfurt for the duration of the show.
