Bugatti gives a glimpse of the all-new Chiron via a Christmas Card

Bugatti is getting ready for the debut of its new hypercar; and what better way to tease the Veyron's successor than with a Christmas card.

Scheduled to be revealed at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the Chiron was first previewed via the Bugatti Vision GT for Gran Turismo 6. Named after one of the company's renowned works drivers, the new hypercar is expected to follow in the footsteps of the Veyron and may have similar exterior styling like the two-tone paint, low-slung profile and distinct front end.

The overall design of the Chiron was not revealed, but it will be based off the Vision GT concept car. It may however lose some of its aggressive exterior details and have a more subtle and clean finish when it debuts.

Bugatti Chief, Wolfgang Durheimer, has already stated a few weeks earlier that their order book is already well filled despite customers not seeing it yet. It will reportedly be driven by a more powerful version of the Veyron powertrain.
