Bugatti's W16 Mistral Makes Arabian Debut

Bugatti’s W16 Mistral made its debut on the Arabian Peninsula at a launch event hosted at Dubai’s Waldorf Astoria in November 2022. As the last roadgoing appearance of the W16 engine that has come to define every Bugatti since the Veyron of 2005, it’s a significant part of the brand’s history. It went on display within the Bugatti UAE showroom, operated by Al Habtoor Motors. Kostas Psarris, Regional Director, Middle East & Asia, Bugatti, said: “The Arabian Peninsula is one of Bugatti’s key sales markets the United Arab Emirates also has the largest fleet of Bugatti Veyron in the world, with over 50 vehicles in the country". For Bugatti’s fastest ever roadster, the aerodynamics and thermodynamics have been carefully balanced to deliver a car that is capable of achieving incomparable speeds. Only 99 examples of the W16 Mistral will be built, priced at 5 million euros net, with deliveries due to begin in 2024. The entire production run of W16 Mistral is already sold out. The W16 Mistral will be capable of 420 km/h in ‘Top Speed’ mode, while achieving drag reduction and downforce through its carefully designed front splitter, aerodynamic underbody and the high energy air flow around its airfoil shaped rear wing.
