Revival of the Naturally Aspirated Engine: Bugatti's Fresh V16 Powerhouse

This colossal engine measures over a meter in length!

Bugatti is phasing out its iconic W16 engine, but fear not, approximately 33 years since the enigmatic Cizeta-Moroder V16T was introduced, a fresh V16 engine is on the horizon. And here's the twist: It's turbo-free! The upcoming hypercar from Molsheim is set to hit the streets in June 2024, powered by a gigantic, naturally aspirated power unit. Newly revealed details shed light on this behemoth sixteen-cylinder engine.

At the recent Future of the Car Summit held in London, Bugatti-Rimac's CEO, Mate Rimac, shed light on some new information this week. The 36-year-old Croatian engineer and businessman disclosed that their V16 engine will operate without the need for turbochargers. This marks a significant departure from their previous models – the Chiron, Veyron, and the EB110, all of which featured quad-turbo configurations.

The founder and CEO of the Rimac Group, which owns a 55 percent stake in Bugatti Rimac, disclosed that the new V16 engine will exceed 100 centimeters in length. This makes it over 40 centimeters longer than the existing W16 engine. The latter will be retired after the production run for the Mistral Roadster ends. However, the new naturally aspirated engine won't be left without assistance: it has been confirmed that it will incorporate hybrid technology.

The confirmed information to date is now out, sparking off the rumor mill. Reports from Auto Motor und Sport indicate that the V16 engine boasts an extensive 8.3-liter displacement and was crafted in collaboration with Cosworth. It's designed to rev up to 9,000 RPM and functions in conjunction with three electric motors. Collectively, they could generate a power output of up to 1,800 horsepower, with the combustion engine contributing approximately 1,000 HP on its own.

Two of the electric motors are designed to power the front wheels, while a third will operate the rear axle. This particular motor is expected to be integrated into an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. Taking into account the dual-clutch transmission, the entire motor-transmission system is reportedly two meters in length. According to sources, Bugatti’s engineers are incorporating a 24.8-kWh battery that should allow for an electric range of just under 60 kilometers.

According to a credible source, AMS has learned that the successor to the Bugatti Chiron is expected to hit 100 km/h from a standstill in roughly two seconds and reach 200 km/h in under five seconds. The vehicle will be able to accelerate from 0 to 300 km/h in less than ten seconds, and it may be possible to go from 0 to 400 km/h in under 25 seconds. The top speed will be electronically limited to 444 km/h.

More high-performance luxury cars

According to the report, production will be capped at 250 units. For context, the Veyron had a production run of 450 units, and the Chiron was limited to 500 units. Despite the official reveal being slated for next month, it appears customer deliveries won't commence until 2026 at the earliest. As for the cost, it starts at a minimum of 3.6 million euros.
