New Body, Chassis
For a lightweight but strong body, the Tourbillon is primarily constructed from a next-generation T800 carbon composite. The new structure incorporates the battery as an integral part of the monocoque, improving crash protection as well as optimizing rigidity. The Bugatti Tourbillon has an all-new aluminum chassis with integrated multi-link front and rear suspension. Engineers 3D-printed a new aluminum suspension arm and upright, lowering the suspension weight by 45 percent compared to the Chiron. While it packs more power with the added weight of the batteries for the electric motors, the Tourbillon’s lightweight construction gives it a lower curb weight than the outgoing Chiron.
