Bugatti enthusiasts often dream of the brand embracing an SUV. To be honest, such a luxurious powerhouse would complement its prestigious lineup. Nevertheless, until Bugatti decides (if at all), Sergiy Dvorntskyy’s captivating Centurion SUV Concept is here to amaze us.
Dvorntskyy’s design is intricate as it integrates parts of the Chiron but develops an entirely new look, creating the perfect balance between impressive performance, sophistication, and refinement.
The front fascia is in line with that of Chiron, and the LED headlights resemble those of a W16-powered hypercar. Large carbon fiber-trimmed air inlets and a silver rib along the bumper set off a broad silver horseshoe grille that honors the W16 Mistral.
A quad-turbocharged W12 engine with help from Rimacs electric motors is what the digital artist envisions powering the Bugatti Centurion SUV. To no one's surprise, this drivetrain probably could have generated more than 2,150 horsepower and 1,733 lb-ft of torque.
The elegance also extends to the sides, with curvy, massive wheels matched with the brake calipers. If you look attentively, you can see the design lengthens the roof to enable maximum interior space. This move, in addition to the carbon fiber fascia and complex LED system reminiscent of the Divo, makes the SUV incredibly eye-catching.
Well, the concept is exciting, but the chief of Bugatti’s design head, Achim Anscheidt, denied such a project already last year. Anscheidt emphasized Bugatti’s dedication to exclusive, low-volume production, raising concerns that a new SUV vehicle may potentially compromise the exclusivity of their current vehicles. Thus, for the moment, a Bugatti SUV exists only as a dream.
