The Bugatti Chiron successor will be unveiled in 2024, with a hybrid V-8 engine

The iconic W-16 engine has been retired, and production of the Chiron’s V-8-powered successor will begin in 2026

The next Bugatti hypercar will mark a significant shift for the company.

Achim Anscheidt, Bugatti’s former chief of design, told Autocar that the Chiron successor will be shown for the first time next year, with production beginning in 2026.

The next Bugatti, most notably, foregoes the brand’s illustrious W-16 engine in favor of a V-8 hybrid setup, presumably using the electrical expertise of Croatian automaker Rimac

The horseshoe grille and C-shaped side bodywork seen on every Bugatti since the 1934 Type 57 will remain on the next model.

The Chiron successor could get a large central touchscreen to control the infotainment system, which was missing from the Chiron and all of its limited-production spin-offs.
