Bugatti is ready to release a coupe-like crossover

Bugatti CEO Stephen Winkelman openly admitted that the company is ready for the second model of the brand, and that the French are ready to think about a crossover or crossover-like coupe.

Even more curiously, it can be built on the basis of the Lamborghini Urus, which Winkelman oversaw during his work as head of the Italian brand. Recall, and Bugatti and Lamborghini are part of one Volkswagen Group automaker.

However, despite the fact that Bugatti will take some components from Urus, the French SUV will be a two-door version, which is much smaller and lighter than the Urus.

There is a possibility that the Bugatti crossover will use a 4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that develops 641 hp. and 850 Nm of torque. However, the French can hybridize the engine to bring the total power to 1000 horsepower. This will allow you to easily overtake Urus, which accelerates to a hundred in 3.6 seconds and a maximum speed of 305 km / h.

In any case, Bugatti is only considering this option, and the company still needs to get approval from the VW Group. If the decision is positive, the production of the crossover can start in 2023 with a circulation of 800 units per year.
