Bugatti has released the Tourbillon, a hypercar that integrates a naturally aspirated 8.3-litre V16 engine with three electric motors to produce a combined output of 1343 kW.

The vehicle is set at a starting price of $5.7 million and will have a limited production of 250 units.

The V16 engine contributes 746 kW and 900 Nm of torque, with a peak RPM of 9000. The electric motors, located on the front and rear axles, provide an additional 597 kW.

This powertrain enables the Tourbillon to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 2.0 seconds, and achieve speeds of 200 km/h in less than five seconds, 300 km/h in under 10 seconds, and 400 km/h in less than 25 seconds with the Speed Key.

The vehicle incorporates a T800 carbon composite monocoque structure which reduces its weight compared to its predecessor, the Chiron.

It features a 24.8 kWh battery capable of over 60 km range on electric power alone.

The all-wheel-drive system is controlled via an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Bugatti has designed the Tourbillon with a lightweight suspension system using forged aluminium multi-link components, carbon-ceramic brakes, and specifically designed Michelin Pilot Cup Sport 2 tires for improved handling and performance.

The interior of the Tourbillon is marked by a centrally located infotainment and driving profile screen, surrounded by specialised instruments designed to echo the aesthetics of high-end watches.

The car maintains traditional Bugatti design elements like the horseshoe grille and a two-tone colour scheme.

The Tourbillon is expected to start global deliveries in 2026 after the end of production for the Bolide and W16 Mistral models.
