Bugatti T99 Street Jet

Innovation has brought several dramatic changes during the life of the automobile and the T99 Street Jet concept pushes the boundaries of what this object of desire means to us. Taking advantage of the latest and greatest advances in all relevant technologies, our design breaks free from the single-piece, slab design for the first time after more than 80 years.  By shifting from a 2 seat to a 1+1 seat design, it first and foremost redefines the hyper car as the ultimate expression of exclusive luxury, presenting the driver / 1-st seat occupant with a unique position only found in single-seat racing cars.

A monolithic structure fuses cabin and wheel pods, connecting them through seamless wing-like transitions, giving the geometry both the lightness and power of a futuristic jetfighter.  Although aided by countless sensors and systems for the non-autonomous mode, it also offers the most primary input; a great view, through its only door and window made of tough, graphene glass.

The inline positioning of the seating has profound implications for aerodynamics, opening two continuous channels at the sides, between the wheel pods and the cabin, thus lowering considerably the drag on the streamlined body.  Aided by the combination of low weight and active aerodynamics  of various moving flaps and fins, the car responds and maneuvers  swiftly even at higher cruising speeds.

To allow sustained and long range operation at high speeds, a standard battery layout would not work, so the SJ relies on continuous inductive charging built into the future autobahn-like highways. It has however a relatively small, "buffer" battery to allow for normal operation and to extend its range into non-powered roads such as city centers or country roads.  In-wheel induction coils help give a direct boost to the in-wheel motors. By absorbing part of the motor power, their role also doubles as tire heaters to optimize the temperature of the tires in cold weather.



Many thanks to all the people involved in the process of bringing this wonderful project to life!
