You need more than just a brochure to convince someone to spend $2.6 million on a supercar. So when Bugatti wanted to tease its upcoming Chiron, the follow-up to its revered Veyron, last year, it had to turn to the special effects wizards at SLGH to fake a CG version for a promo video, because the car didn’t quite exist yet to actually film.

Since the Chiron is an upgraded version of the Veyron, the effects team was able to simply film a special version of the existing car, covered in tracking markers, which allowed them to seamlessly composite a CG version of the new supercar atop it.
