Check out the €5 million Bugatti W16 Mistral’s dancing elephant!
Singapore - The W16 Mistral makes its final stop in Singapore, after a tour covering the North America, Europe, the Middle East, Japan. Following the footsteps of the Veyron and Chiron, the Mistral is their final car to receive the legendary quad-turbocharged, quad-banked, sixteen-cylinder powertrain. Bugatti has committed to only 99 units, with each hypercar costing €5 million, and with deliveries expected in 2024.
In designing the W16 Mistral, designers took inspiration from the Type 57 Roadster Grand Raid Usine, from 1934; the latter which won the Chavigny Hill Climb. A design nod to the past includes twin intakes above the seats, which is inspired by the Grand Raid Usine, and Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse. The iconic dancing elephant, originally designed by Rembrandt Bugatti, is now encased in resin within the gear shifter - à la Jurassic Park.
The Bugatti W16 Mistral is currently at the Bugatti Singapore showroom, at 45 Leng Kee Road.
