The era of Bugatti Chiron and its quad-turbocharged W16 engine is coming to an end. However, this is not the end for Bugatti, as a new flagship supercar is already under development. Bugatti confirmed this in a written report today, stating that the new successor will debut in 2024 and go into production in 2026. However, for Bugatti, the next generation model will also mark the end of an era, as Achim Anscheidt, who has served as Bugatti’s design director since 2004, will officially retire.

Bugatti announced Anscheidt’s upcoming retirement in the press release. Since serving as Bugatti’s design director in 2004, he has brought special edition Veyron models such as the Super Sport, Grand Sport Vitesse, and Hermès. He is also the designer of Bugatti concept cars, which did not enter production, especially the four-door Galibier. Of course, Bugatti Chiron and a large number of derived models, including Centodieci, Bolide, Divo, Mistral, and the unique La Voiture Noire, all came from his hands.

Although Anscheidt is retiring, his design philosophy will continue with the successor of Chiron. According to Bugatti, the new model has been under development for several years and will debut in 2024. The announcement also confirms previous rumors about electrification. The next generation Bugatti will adopt a hybrid powertrain system, but whether it will still be equipped with the iconic W16 engine remains to be seen. Considering the company’s merger with Rimac in 2021, the next generation Bugatti is expected to have a powerful electric motor. If everything goes according to plan, it will go into production in 2026.
