The Bugatti Tourbillon is no doubt a work of art, and everybody knows how Bugatti likes its interior done — completely analog and made with the utmost levels of craftsmanship.

But it’s 2024, and with humongous displays on the center consoles of everyday cars (hello, Tesla), the French marque finally went digital.

Although it’s hidden away and will only ‘pop open’ when you need it, it’s there, and the automaker finally gave in.

As you might expect, it did that in style.

A ‘timeless’ analog interior with a hidden element

The entirety of the interior inside the Tourbillon wants to look like a complex yet subtle watch, which it does.

Its primary aim was to stand out — it’s hard to argue that it doesn’t.

A lot is going on with the steering wheel, gauge cluster, and center console already.

There are many mechanical moving parts, but despite that, the titanium housing holds it all together pretty firmly while being as light as a feather.

When you take a closer look at the center console, you won’t notice anything out of the ordinary.

Well, except for the shiny analog dials for volume and AC controls, among other ‘physical’ controls to interact with your car.

However, it appears that modern-day hypercar drivers still want that Apple CarPlay functionality, so there’s a hidden screen tucked away just above the analog knobs.

A pop-up display will appear vertically when you need it and then flip, so you will have a horizontal screen ready to run Google Maps or Apple Maps if you prefer that.

The Bugatti Tourbillon wants to stand out

A screen is there, but the automaker doesn’t want you to use it.

The brand ensures that all of the Bugatti Tourbillon’s functions will be accessible without using the screen.

You see, the French marque wanted to give the hypercar a timeless design — something that would be relevant 100 years from now.

Since most cars today have screens all over, they had to make it all-analog and do it the ‘perfectionist’ way.

It shows how much thought was put into designing the Tourbillon, which is a work of art in every way.

Apart from the interior, much effort went into the overall design.

Design, however, isn’t the only thing defining this future hypercar.

The new hybrid powertrain includes a massive 8.3-liter V16, which alone produces 986 horsepower out of the total 1775 horsepower output.

We even got a video showing how the Bugatti Tourbillon revs, and the sounds, might just be a symphony.
