The final endurance test took place in the Puglia region of southern Italy where the car was driven day and night on different track profiles and across every speed range, from stop-and-go pace to top speed to test and register every minor anomaly. The man responsible for endurance testing at Bugatti, Steffen Leicht, said the Nardo test centre provides the ideal conditions for intensive endurance tests as it offers a high-speed circuit and handling course.
