How the Bugatti Bolide is much, much quicker than a Chiron


Revealed late last year, the Bugatti Bolide is by far the most extreme car the company has ever produced. Closer to an LMP1 car than a road car, this thing has apparently set simulated lap times that boggle the mind. Mike Fernie investigates this incredible car, diving into its engine, aerodynamics and statistics.

    @ғɪʟʟ 1ɴ ᴛ҉ ʜ3 ʙʟᴀɴᴋs The very FIRST (pre 😂) production car to do 304.773MPH +plus as it's top speed is unknown. The first (pre 😂) production manufactured hypercar to achieve 300-400km/h in UNDER 11 seconds. The first (pre 😂) production car with 1600hp on regular pump fuel. I mean how many superlatives do you need? :)

    Honestly, just making more of a publicized competition around manufacturers building unrestricted time-attack machines would be really cool. Nurburgring, Pikes Peak, etc. No other cars, no rules, all-out speed. Bugatti, Porsche, Koenigsegg, the ID.R program, perhaps the next Tesla Roadster... Racing is nice, but at 500km/h, it is dangerous enough without other cars on the track. I just want to see Porsche gingerly handing the Nurburgring trophy to the Bugatti team and going back to the drawing board. :-D

    No, it' the french word, because bugatti is part french and describe themselve as a french compgny iit is indeed just "bolid" meaning "very fast vehicule" in french. Even buggati call it like this.

    When he described the “dimples” but really meant “bubbles” did he have the tech backwards? I thought the bubbles would decrease laminar flow and in turn decrease downforce and drag. Deflating the bubbles would allow greater laminar flow. This would keep the airflow tight to the body so it could flow over the rear wing. Doing so would increase drag and also increase downforce. Would someone who truly understands fluid dynamics explain this to me?
