Real life Bugatti W16 Mistral
With the Bugatti Mistral, which will go into production in 2024, the brand is bidding farewell to its legendary W16 engine. The price is correspondingly high.
At the start of a new era, the “old” car world is really revving things up and pulling out all the stops, and not just in terms of price. A good example of this is the Bugatti Mistral. Before the noblest of the noble brands takes at least the first tentative steps into the electric age, the French brand is once again showcasing its fabulous 16-cylinder engine. Perhaps the most spectacular series-production engine of all time finds its farewell home in an open super sports car – after all, almost every second Bugatti in the company’s long history has been an open-air model, explains the new company boss Mate Rimac.
Named after a warm summer wind on the Côte d’Azur, the roadster will go into series production in two years. And anyone who is upset about the net price of five million euros can calm down right away: There will only be 99 examples of the Bugatti Mistral, and they have long since been sold. However, no one should be misled by the cuddly name.
After all, Bugatti installs the highest expansion stage of the eight-liter power plant in the roadster for good measure and provides plenty of airstream with 1600 hp (1177 kW) and 1600 Newton meters. It shouldn’t take much longer than 2.5 seconds to go from zero to 100 km/h, and Bugatti can’t do anything below 400 km/h top speed.
The engine in the Bugatti W16 Mistral is a work of art in itself. But Bugatti engineers and designers have also worked on the car itself, turning it into a work of art: Simply removing the roof was far too little for them. Instead, they redesigned the entire monocoque and took the opportunity to develop a new front end with independent headlights, as well as cutting a red LED X into the rear instead of the taillights – although this has hardly any effect on the dimensions.
And they haven’t just changed the air ducting again for technical reasons: The Bugatti Mistral’s new intake layout creates a frenzy for the senses: the entire spectrum of this 16-cylinder orchestra ranges from the quiet, powerful, muffled intake noise of the eight-liter displacement engine during acceleration, to the exhaust valve whistle of the four turbochargers when the throttle is lifted is now even better accentuated. No other sports car makes more spectacle. True, at Bugatti they leave no doubt that the Mistral will be the last of its kind.
But that only applies to the engine and not to the concept: “Bugatti has always been associated with the purity of open-top driving. Even if the W16 powertrain ends with the Mistral,” promises Mate Rimac, “we will continue the roadster legacy that Ettore Bugatti established more than a century ago.”
