Bugatti W16 Mistral: 1600 hp for the farewell to the combustion engine
Unveiled at Pebble Beach in California, the Mistral is the latest Bugatti using a 100% thermal engine. Technically, this roadster derives from the Chiron Super Sport 300+, from which it borrows the 8-liter W16 with four turbos delivering 1600 hp. Enough to allow a top speed of 480 km / h, which would make it the fastest roadster in the world.
As for its name, it was not chosen by chance: it evokes both hair driving in the wind and aerodynamic work. Note in this regard the absence of a rear wing, giving more purity to the line.
99 copies of the Mistral will be produced, and all are already sold, despite a price of 5 million euros excluding taxes and options.
