Bugatti Expands Molsheim HQ for New Models

Creating Performance Vehicles

Bugatti has announced the commencement of the finish for their quad-turbo W16 engine, depicted in the Mistral roadster and Bolide track-only form. Forty of the most extreme versions of the roofless hypercar will be produced with99 units created in general. Subsequently, the 8.0-liter powerplant will be eventually laid to rest as the brand downsizes to another unknown motor. To back this launching of their dynamic duo, their headquarters located in Molsheim are undergoing expansion.

Covering an area of 2,120 square meters (22,819 square feet), a new two-story building is expected to be operational in the latter half of next year. It will be used to support the arrival of “performance-defining automobiles” from Bugatti that are set to come after the Chiron era. While details are scant, Bugatti has said that it plans to increase its workforce by more than 50 percent by the end of 2027 to get ready for the upcoming models of the Bugatti Rimac era.

The recently established company has been very quiet about what will come after the Chiron’s lifespan is over. However, the head of the business, Mate Rimac, did mention that it will have a “totally bonkers” internal combustion engine, saying that we will all be “blown away” when it is revealed. It has been known that the development of the ICE began two years prior to the agreement between the two firms. As for the car itself, which is expected to have a hybrid powertrain, the Croatian entrepreneur stated that it won’t share a single component with the Chiron, as everything will be completely new.

Mate Rimac stated that the upcoming Bugatti model “will be more beautiful [than the Rimac Nevera], analog instruments, kind of watch-making stuff.” Prior to the merger, the Volkswagen Group had plans to develop an electric SUV, but those were quickly abandoned upon Rimac’s appointment as head of the newly formed company. In a conversation with Auto Express at the end of last year, Rimac revealed that Bugatti’s parent company even contemplated discontinuing the brand or offloading it.
