Next Bugatti Hypercar To Have "Totally Bonkers" Combustion Engine Developed By Rimac

The 8.0-liter W16 engine is being officially retired by Bugatti with the Mistral and Bolide. 

The final pieces of the roadster and track-only vehicle will be delivered by the folks from Molsheim in 2024,

by which time the quad-turbo powerhouse will have become more than 20 years old.

 What follows? The recently established Bugatti Rimac firm is creating a hypercar from the ground up rather than simply adding the EB badge to a Nevera and calling it a day.

Mate Rimac spoke with Auto Express on what would happen after the Chiron.

Surprisingly, Rimac, which is renowned for its state-of-the-art electric vehicle expertise, began working on a combustion engine two years before joining with Bugatti.

A "hypercar reconfigured as a hybrid," according to its marketing.
