The Luxury Bugatti Supercarmaker

Recently, there are some rumor that Bugatti, the luxury supercarmaker is trying to build something similar of its sister company Audi with the E-tron. As the Bugatti that always expect for high horsepower. Thus, they will be looking for the range of 800 horses in this new model and they will need help from the VW Group’s repertoire of electric drive train units.

So far the unit already been built but it is only for showcase of technology and no plan to make it into production yet. The prototype is designed based on the chassis of a Bentley Continental GT, with the electric motor, which powered by an advanced lithium-ion battery, created 2,200 Nm of torque deom just 0 rpm. However, this also made a problem of discharging the battery power after a simple bout of power.
