Inspired by Bugatti’s official concept, this stunning-looking automobile transforms the style cues and proportions of the Vision Gran Turismo into a Coupe.
Designed by Alexander Imnadze, the Type-6 GT Vision – as it’s named – makes the best of the old Bugatti design techniques in order to blend the proportions of modern-day automobiles with the pre-war volume concepts. Just by glancing at it you can spot various subtle throwbacks to the marque’s rich heritage, such as the fine-drawn line that separates the rear windshield taken from the iconic Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic.
After understanding its philosophy, it comes as no surprise to see the car bearing a simple, elegant design, reminiscent of the old pre-war coachbuilders and their graceful approach. Still, the digital study has some modern-day touches as well, including Bugatti’s iconic side line that cocoons the cabin and delimits the car’s two major volumes, whilst creating a wide, thick B-pillar, as seen on the Veyron, Vision GT Concept and even on the Galibier – to some extent.
In fact, that exact design cue hides a subtle intake on the Type-6 GT Vision which pushes air out the rear spoiler in order to make it more aerodynamic. The horizontal, elongated taillight is a nice addition too, especially as future Bugattis are most likely bound to sport such a stylistic approach.
All in all, the Type-6 GT Vision is as an elegant, expressive attitude, specific to a Bugatti.
