YouTube car enthusiast Alex ‘Supercar Blondie’ Hirschi revealed a secret electric Bugatti model that never made its way into serial production.
Supercar Blondie has managed to build an incredible following of over 3.2 million subscribers on her YouTube channel, where she documents her experiences with some of the most expensive automobiles around.
The popular content creator surprised fans once again in her March 12 upload after managing to get her hands on a secret electric Bugatti model that was never produced for the market.
Bugatti is one of the more luxurious car brands around and is known for producing some of the most jaw-dropping hypercars across the years such as their Veyron and Chiron models.
However, Supercar Blondie revealed that Bugatti’s secret coupe, named the Bugatti Atlantic, which she got to showcase, was quite different from some of the previous ones.
“They’ve moved the engine to the front, so you’ve got this long nose here,” she explained, comparing the car to Bugatti past models, “This would have a different engine to the Chiron and Veyron.
She also shared that the Atlantic would even allow owners to choose an electric model, “The whole drivetrain is replaceable so that you can choose between a twin-turbo V8 or a fully electric Bugatti Atlantic.”
Supercar Blondie explained that the Atlantic was originally meant to be unveiled in 2015 but after Volkswagen’s emissions scandal it never got to reach the production stage and was later canceled.
She continued on to highlight many of the incredible features that the car boasted such as the butterfly doors and revealed that the estimated price tag was between 1-2 million Euros before getting a chance to interview the car’s designer.
This is not the first time that the popular car enthusiast has managed to showcase a one-of-a-kind treasure such as this on her channel such as when she stunned fans after highlighting the incredible Ferrari MIG-U1.
