The 2025 Bugatti Aerolithe -- The vanguard of a new wave of intelligent
'Super luxury' Grand Tourer for 2025, inspired by Ettore Bugatti's
principles of automotive design, the original Aerolithe, and the theme
Key themes; Extravagant Graceful Sporting
The new 2025 Bugatti Aerolithe concept represents a return to the brand
values and holistic attitude of Ettore Bugatti that made Bugatti cars so
great -- simplicity, beauty and intelligence. The new Aerolithe takes theme
and style inspiration from the lightweight original and re imagines it as a
futuristic and exclusive GT car for 15 years in the future - the vanguard
of a new wave of intelligent luxury.
The typical buyer of a new Bugatti is the man who has it all. He
statistically already owns 8+ cars, A boat and/ or a private jet. He can
afford to choose to buy the very best in everything and the Aerolithe was
designed to be the best grand tourer money can buy.
The dramatic styling is an exercise in pure surfacing. It references the
original with its elegant proportions and split windows, whilst carving out
a new design direction for Bugatti utilising clean, unbroken surfacing and
advanced aerodynamics. The main bodywork is completely smooth, uncluttered
by external mirrors, door handles and clunky spoilers. The lines are
inspired by organic forms, science fiction and the original 193 Aerolithe.
Up front, the signature Bugatti 'Horseshoe' grill in is a direct ram air
intake to the turbine engine, whilst the headlights apertures in the front
double up as cooling ducts to cool the brakes. At the rear, the boot lid
features two jet fighter inspired pop up air brakes to stabilise the car
under braking, whilst the rear lights also double up as cooling ducts.
Advanced technology integrated so harmoniously into the clean bodyshell
that you would never know it was there.
Underbody aerodynamics are a key feature of the Aerolithe and allow it to
have such clean styling. Two air channels run the full length of the
underbody of the car directing air from the front, around the almond shaped
cabin, back to the massive double diffuser at the rear. This generates
enough downforce to keep the car firmly glued to the road at speed without
the need for any visible rear spoiler.
The Aerospace inspired split canopy doors of the Aerolithe concept are a
stand out feature designed primarily to allow easy access to the cabin, but
also to generate street theatre when the car pulls up. Each side opens
independently of the other, and splits into a top and bottom half. The
bottom half of each door tucks under the sill, whilst the top half swings
up and forwards taking with it a massive swathe of bodywork and the whole
dashboard. The steering column can then raise into the space left by the
door, giving an enormous aperture to allow users of all shapes and sizes to
easily get in and out.
The polished aluminium centre spine is a key styling and construction
feature. It references the riveted central seam line of the original and
develops it into a key structural component running throughout the interior
and exterior. Beneath the sensuous carbon fibre bodywork is a highly
efficient and dynamic mechanical package. The Aerolithe features titanium,
magnesium and composite materials throughout to keep the weight down to
around 1400kg. The passenger safety cell is bullet proof, with Aluminium
Oxynitride windows. Driving a one million pound car you never can be too
Propulsion is provided by an advanced Microturbine battery hybrid
drivetrain. Microturbines are an emerging technology that will see great
use in the automotive industry in the coming years. They are compact,
lightweight and highly efficient. They can run on almost anything that
burns --petrol, diesel, kerosene, alcohol, even perfume. In the Aerolithe
the Microturbine functions only as a generator with no mechanical link to
the wheels. Its only function is to generate electricity to charge the
batteries on the move. In general terms, the Aerolithe is an electric car.
The Microturbine engine is a range extender for the batteries, giving a
theoretical range of up to 800 miles on one tank of fuel with minimal
