Bugatti W16 Mistral is the open end of the W16 era

Bugatti explains that this is more than just a development of the Chiron and therefore needed a name associated with freedom, elegance and speed. He was inspired by the mistral, a strong wind from the south of France. Interestingly, the name was used by another automaker in the Maserati Mistral produced between 1963 and 1970. But we don’t think anyone would mistake this for a leaky Italian. In addition, this French hypercar is officially called the W16 Mistral because the engine is central to the character of the roadster.

Notably, the Mistral is powered by the 1,578 horsepower version of the 8.0-litre quad-turbo W16 engine found in the Chiron Super Sport 300+. Do you think what we think? Bugatti is on the same wavelength: “There can only be one goal: to become the fastest roadster in the world again.” Hennessey Venom F5 Roadster, pay attention. The French are not retreating this time.
