Comprising more than 600 components, the skeletonized instrument cluster is constructed from titanium and features sapphire-glass faces and detailing that incorporates rubies.

The center console features crystal glass that’s formed over 13 separate stages to ensure strength and clarity.

This prototype example of the Tourbillon, previewed by Robb Report, shows the styling influences that came from Bugatti’s Type 35, Type 41 Royale, and storied Type 57SC Atlantic from early last century.

The Tourbillon’s 1,000 hp, 8.3-liter naturally aspirated V-16 engine is paired with three electric motors.

Early prototype tests suggest a rate of acceleration from zero to 62 mph in 2.0 seconds.

The max-speed target is 445 kph (276 mph), though with a speedometer that reads up to 550 kph (341 mph), we expect there’s more to come.

What you won’t find in the interior are any touchscreens, as Bugatti’s director of design, Frank Heyl, believes that the primary element that dates a car is an oversized screen.

The Tourbillon’s new, super-stiff body structure is formed using next-generation T800 carbon composites.

At the rear, huge exhausts, a Le Mans–style carbon-fiber diffuser (twice the size of that on the Chiron), and a rolling wave of LED lights featuring illuminated Bugatti lettering, add to the visual drama.

Production is scheduled to begin in 2026.

The Bugatti Tourbillon will be limited to 250 examples, each starting at €3.8 million, or $4.08 million at today’s exchange rate.
