"Wow, that's interesting. Do you work in that sector?"
No, I stopped bashing metal in 2000. But I've followed developments since out of curiosity because the holy grail has always been a magic manufacturing method that produces the part to net size in one hit, and it's interesting seeing how close (or far) things are getting.
Information about the Bugatti part is available on line. The real advantage of 3d printing is that you can have internal features that simply cannot be achieved by external machining. But that doesn't mean that you get the resulting part quicker or cheaper, just that its properties will be better in some way.
