The anticipation around the successor to the Bugatti Chiron is palpable.

Details about the exterior and interior have already leaked.

Now, a photo showcasing the hypercar’s unique gauge cluster is circulating the internet.

We knew it was going to be inspired by the mechanics of a Swiss watch, but we didn’t know how cool it was going to look.

It’s expected that the much-anticipated Chiron successor will be revealed in June, but production is set to only begin in 2027.

It’s hardly surprising that the atelier is moving so slowly on this project, especially considering how long it takes to paint just one of its cars.

A far-away release date hasn’t stopped Bugatti fans from spying, speculating and even rendering their own versions of the upcoming car.

So far we’ve seen a spy shot of a prototype, covered in camouflage paint.

We also know exactly what the V16 engine will sound like thanks to a video clip released by Bugatti.

And an artist on Instagram took the spy shots to create a rendering of the hypercar’s profile, featuring the company’s signature C-line.

Now, for the first time, a leaked photo has emerged of what appears to be the gauge cluster of the Chiron successor.

Bugatti is famous for its intricate details so it makes sense that the designers took inspiration from the meticulous craftsmanship of Swiss watchmakers for this vehicle.

The instrument panel is completely transparent, highlighting the mechanical details of the design.

It’s a triple-pod layout, with an analog speedometer in the center and a small digital display at the bottom.

The speedometer is capped at 342 mph, which is 31 mph higher than the gauge of the Chiron.

On the right is the rev counter and on the left are three more gauges with unclear functions.

This elegant design will make many purists happy—those who appreciate modern power combined with classic styling.

These are the same people who breathed a sigh of relief upon hearing that this would not be built with an all-electric powertrain.
