Platform: PS1

Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment

Release Date: 20/03/1998

Bugatti has officially revealed it is taking part in the Vision Gran Turismo design study programme.

Confirmed through official Bugatti social media channels, the revelation was broken through a new teaser image, which appears to be depicting a top-down view of a bodywork piece on this new VGT,

The details that can be picked out from the image also further reinforce the rumours that this Bugatti is a racing car of sorts. For instance, the vertical stabiliser is a mandatory feature on modern day Le Mans Prototypes.

It;s possible this dorsal fin be construed as a nod to Bugatti's automotive heritage – one of the more distinctive styling features on the 1936 Bugatti Type 57 Aerolithe concept car were the riveted vertical spines on the roof and front wheel arches (since the car's bodywork was made out of a lightweight-but-highly-flammable magnesium alloy, it would have been impossible to weld the panels together).

A teaser video released by Bugatti also shows Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi driving a classic Bugatti Type 51 racing car. Whether this means the racing game series' association with Bugatti covers more than this one-off concept car, though, remains to be seen.
