Bugatti has maintained the same general appearance for ages. Many carmakers take this approach, and while it does work, sometimes change is refreshing. The amazing Veyron was born thanks to the intervention of Volkswagen, and now French designer Marc Devauze is taking a trip down memory lane with the Bugatti TypeZero concept.
The TypeZero resembles the Type 35 of the 1920s, which was the brand’s most successful racer.
Dubbed the Bugatti TypeZero, it is a blend of some of its racing predecessors with a touch of the modern. The result is a single-seater bullet with racing suspension. The modern twist lies in the dramatic lines and the electric capacity, as it is fitted with 2 batteries and 4 motors! Where did they put all of that hardware?
How it works
The TypeZero lacks both a roof and a windshield, and would make a dreadful daily driver. This car was clearly crafted with one destination in mind: the racetrack. The styling cues of the 1920s Type 35 are evident. The Type 35 won over 1,000 races during its time, including the Grand Prix World Championship and the Targa Florio.
This is a small beast, with a roar that remains to be seen.
The rumor mill says that the TypeZero concept is being developed at the International School of Design in France by the automaker. It bears a slight resemblance to the Wiesmann Spyder from the Geneva Auto Show last year, but the odds of this concept actually hitting production are slim to zero.
There is just one seat in the TypeZero, translating to zero passengers.
