The Bugatti Mistral Roadster signals the ending of the Chiron lineage that began in 2016. The Mistral is the final edition, a roadster swansong that will wave goodbye to the mighty 1,578 hp; 1,600 PS 8.0 L (488 cu in) quad-turbocharged W16 engine.
The next generation replacement will be measured in kWh but for now, the Mistral Roadster is the last analog Bugatti.
Based on the Chiron chassis, the Mistral Roadster features a completely bespoke exterior optimized for aerodynamics while retaining avant-garde styling, a difficult concept to achieve.
Bugatti decided to take the Mistral Roadster on a world tour and on its latest stop in Japan they couldn’t resist whipping out a conveniently placed digital camera.
The W16 Mistral Roadster is limited to just 99 examples. Each example will cost $5M.
The W16 powerplant is the heart of the Mistral Roadster. The 1,578 hp and 1,600 Nm of torque propel the Mistral to a top speed of 261 mph.
