Bugatti Vision GT makes noisy exit from Italian event

Updated: 

Bugatti's Vision Gran Turismo has been caught on camera starting up and revving at this year's Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este, near Lake Como in Italy.

The Vision GT was created for Gran Turismo for Playstation 3, with a virtual reality version of the car available to gamers. However, the car we see before us here is very much real.

Designed as a prelude to Bugatti's new Chiron hypercar, the Vision GT features a 6.0-litre W12. As yet, very little is known about the Vision GT's performance, though Bugatti recently announced the details surrounding its new Chiron.

Powered by the same 6.0-litre W12, the Chiron can reach 62mph in just 2.5 seconds, and carry on accelerating to a top speed of 260mph. This is thanks to around 1,500bhp and 1,600Nm torque.

Despite costing more than £1 million, all 500 examples of the Chiron have already been snapped up by customers.
