The French marque Bugatti is hard not to associate with speed. Ludicrous speeds, that is. The brand has made a name for itself by making cars with four-digit horsepower ratings and unimaginable top speeds.
And these aren’t just on paper – a purpose-built Bugatti Chiron “Longtail”, which later officially became the Chiron Super Sport 300+ that is bound for production, has breached the 300-mile-per-hour barrier with a record-breaking top speed of 304.773 mph (490.484 kph).
Now, imagine if the French marque makes a semi-trailer truck, or semi, instead of exhilarating two-seaters. Prathyush Devadas of Chinese company Dongfeng did so, and this Bugatti Hyper Truck Concept on the gallery above was how he imagined a Bugatti truck would look like.
To keep the distinct Bugatti design, Devadas gave his rendering of the French semi the iconic “C” line at the front of the truck. Interestingly, the cab looks to be suspended inside the “C,” which gave it a front chin bumper that could sweep whatever it is in front of the massive raging truck.
The Tesla Semi is a battery electric Class 8 semi-truck by Tesla, Inc. The truck is powered by three motors, and is claimed by Tesla to have approximately three times the power of a typical diesel semi truck, a range of 500 miles (800 km), and operate at an energy use of less than 2 kWh/mi (1.2 kW⋅h/km).
