An image released by the joint venture seems to suggest so.
The image was shared following the decision to open a new engineering and design center in Germany.
The very casual-looking image shows both Bugatti Rimac design director Achim Anscheidt and chief technology officer Emilio Scervo standing ahead of a picture that contains many well-known cars, and two mysterious ones.
The Bugattis in the picture are collectively worth at least $50 million. Included are the Bolide, the La Voiture Noire (almost $20 million on its own), Centodieci, Divo, Chiron, the 16C Galibier concept, and a Veyron Super Sport. On the left-hand side of the image, we can the super-hypercar Rimac Nevera, which is far from “cheap” but most importantly, just below it is two new cars, one for each brand.
As we know, last November, Bugatti and Rimac, with Porsche’s blessing, formed Bugatti Rimac d.o.o. The fact that there are two new vehicles shown in the picture leads us to believe that they are the first results of the new venture.
Bugatti Rimac teased four new models in early January and these two must be part of this plan. There’s nothing to go on based on the picture other than the Rimac car looks like it might be an evolved Nevera by the visible lines. The Bugatti, on the other hand, may be the Chiron’s awaited replacement.
