Bugatti Head of Design’s Private 911 Project

Bugatti’s head of design, Achim Anscheidt, might be busy crafting hypercars that can handle 1001bhp, but when he’s not at work he prefers the stripped out minimalism afforded by his 1981 Porsche 911SC.

He fitted his car has with lighter Kevlar panels and plastic windows and completely stripped its interior of non-essential items like carpeting and heating. The result? A vehicle weighs a scant 820kg.

In the video above, Anscheidt meets up with the team at Drive for a cruise through the streets of Berlin, where he shares his affection for design simplicity exemplified by personalized fixed gear bicycles, recalls his early years customizing mopeds, and shares an interesting anecdote on how he came up with a solution to paint the car’s quintessential Fuchs wheels.

He also shares how this project differs from his work at Bugatti.

It’s well worth a watch.

Thanks to the guys over at DRIVE
