  • A report from the United Kingdom Cars Magazine says VW is in talks to sell Bugatti to Croatian EV launch remake; Bugatti declined to comment.
  • C / D Before the story broke, he spoke with CEO Stephen Winkleman, who said it would make sense if the Bugatti model, which should be developed in the future, was all electronic.
  • The Remake has already produced the C_Two, an electric hypercar with nearly 2,000 horsepower, which is not out of the question for the Bugatti.

    Bugatti declines to comment on a UK report Cars Magazine that is the Volkswagen Group Its greatest is planning to deactivate its subsidiary Croatian performance to EV manufacturer Remac. Bugatti’s entire portfolio is currently powered by a quad-turbocharged W-16 engine, which may not seem the most obvious – but Remack intends to produce a more powerful all-electric hypercar, so there may actually be some coexistence.

    “This is a rumor. We do not comment on rumors,” a Bugatti spokesman said. “I can tell you that we are making a profit and have had very positive results over the last two years.”

    Cars and drivers I had the opportunity to interview Bugatti boss Steven Winkelmann at an event in Italy this weekend. It was before this sales story broke, but some of his answers are very interesting when looking at this new development.

    Winklemann confirmed that development of the second model line of Bugatti has been suspended due to the COVID-19 epidemic. This could be an EV – said Volkswagen Group insiders C / D While there have been discussions between Bugatti and Remake about technology transfer, Winkleman admits that he sees a direct transition from petrol to electricity that makes more sense than hybridization.

    “You have to take the right steps at the right time,” he told us. “I think that [straight switch] The hybrid will be a better one as it brings extra weight and complexity.

    What do Bugatti buyers want?

    But Winkleman also firmly believed that current buyers at Bugulty were totally happy with the use of the W-16 power plants. “Super sports cars need internal combustion engines and this is our feeling,” he said. Remake’s special knowledge of EV Powertrain’s performance is world leading, but it’s hard to see how the Croatian brand will cope with it. With the engineering challenges of obtaining Bugatti’s enormous sophisticated petrol engine through increasingly rigorous emission standards.

    Among other issues with a potential acquisition, Rimark is working closely with other carmakers. Porsche owns 15 percent of the Remac stock, while Hyundai, Jaguar, Land Rover and Koenigsegg all own small shares. The remake will work with clients including Pininfarina Automobile and is designed to use C_Two’s underlying motives as the basis for the upcoming Batista Megacar. Can the same architecture be used for Bugatti?

    When Ford was in control of Peach, Volkswagen made a large investment in Bugatti. Note that the Veron project alone would cost about $ 1.6 billion to build 450 cars. So when a large company modestly profits its reputable subsidiary, it seems strange to dismiss it. While Bugatti can still sell every car it can produce, Winkleman’s strategy of creating more dynamic focused models seems to resonate well with the company’s customers. Bugatti is able to take the lead in the production of high-performance EVs to subdue control, thereby avoiding the burning of super car buyers. If so, it could be seen as a price to pay for the leadership of the Volkswagen Group.
