Up close and personal.
The 2016 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este played home to some seriously stunning vehicles from the production models to the one-offs and concepts such as the BMW 2002 Hommage and Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato. The Bugatti Chiron might be stealing headlines as the new top-dog in the automotive world, but the Vision Gran Turismo concept is quite the attention-grabber – even in a place like the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este.
With its hardcore aerodynamics and quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W-16 engine, the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo concept generated quite a buzz – literally. Its quad exhaust pipes emitted a thunderous rumble and brutal note when the engine was revved.
It is a glorious specimen of automotive design and power, even when being loaded into a truck.
