As Monterey Car Week, the richest car event in the west—if not the world—wraps up this weekend, there’s been a few debut standouts that deserve a shoutout. 

There’s the Bugatti Bolide, a €4 million ($4.69 million) “experimental” hypercar concept first unveiled in Oct. 2020 that’s now getting life as a production vehicle. The 1,824-horsepower beast boasts an eight-liter W16 engine, a seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive. It can reach 62 mph in 2.17 seconds, according to the French manufacturer. Only 40 will be made.
