Almost every car manufacturer seems to be wanting in on the SUV segment, but let us stick to the premium brands for now. Bentley has the Bentayga, Porsche has the Cayenne, Rolls Royce has the upcoming Cullinan, Lamborghini has the upcoming Urus and Maserati has the upcoming Levante.
With so many SUV’s coming up from premium manufacturers, how can Bugatti stay away from the party? But, turns out they do not have any plans of developing anything remotely close to an SUV for now. However, one of DriveSpark’s readers, Narendra Singh Chhetri, an automotive designer by profession has designed the Bugatti Intruder — his imagination of what a Bugatti SUV would look like.
The Bugatti Intruder, according to Chhetri, is a two-seater hybrid SUV which carries the same Bugatti legacy, but in a different package. He has rightly judged the future to be full of electric cars and hybrid vehicles and hence has imagined the Bugatti Intruder to be a petrol-electric hybrid.
The Intruder imitates the Bugatti design language that is found on both, the Veyron and the Chiron. There are other familiar Bugatti bits as well, like the grille up front, the side vents and the roof air scoops. But here, a pair of lights have taken the place of the air scoops.
The Veyron started the mean-looking design trend for Bugatti, and the Chiron took the menacing looks a notch up. The Intruder though does not seem to be anywhere close to menacing, nor is it as scary as that name sounds. But kudos to Chhetri for trying.
