These could be the very first photos, depicting a camo-free prototype of the upcoming Bugatti Chiron supercar.

Shared by GT Board, the attached images are reportedly showing some kind of crash prototype of the model, most likely ready for a side-impact test. The mule has no driver’s door and interior so we can’t be sure it’s a fully operating machine.

Still, if we assume this is a Chiron prototype indeed, the Veyron successor will be heavily influenced by the Vision Gran Turismo Concept, as expected. We noticed the similar yet simpler headlights and the toned down front bumper lacking some of the aerodynamic details of the study.

Word on the street says that Bugatti will likely produce only 500 copies of the new model, each carrying a price tag of almost 2.5M USD. Power will be provided by a W16 8.0-liter quad turbo engine with around 1,500 bhp (1,118 kW) thanks to e-turbo technology. Bugatti is targeting a 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) acceleration in about 2 seconds and a top speed of more than 280 mph (450 km/h).
