Bugatti Chiron

This is it. Perhaps the ultimate automobile man has produced. The Bugatti Chiron cannot be compared with other cars, oh no, this creation needs to be compared with some of the other ultimate creations of mankind, like the Concorde and the Burj Khalifa. The numbers say it all: 8 litres, 16 cylinder, quad turbo motor,  1479 bhp, 1660 Nm torque, 261 mph, and $2.6 million(!). There are only a handful of equals.

The Bugatti Chiron is a mid-engined, two-seated hyper car, designed and developed by the Bugatti automotive group (which is owned by the Volkswagen Group) as the successor to the mighty Bugatti Veyron. The Chiron was first revealed at the Geneva Motor Show on March 1, 2016. It also will be the second edition of the Bugatti 18/3 Chiron.

The Chiron competes with the highest stratosphere of hypercars like the manic Koenigsegg Regera, Keonigsegg Agera, the brutally fast Henessay Venom GT and the holy trinity of McLaren P1Porsche 918 Spyder and the Ferrari LaFerrari.

The car is named in honor of the Monegasque driver, Louis Chiron. You know you are great when the perhaps the world's fastest car is named after you.

 The main carryover piece will be the 8 litre W16 quad-turbocharged engine, though it is heavily updated. The Chiron has 1,103 kW (1,479 bhp) of power and 1,600 N·m (1,180 lb·ft) of torque starting from 2000 rpm. Like its predecessor, the Veyron, it has a carbon fibre body structure, independent suspension and AWD system.

The Veyron Super Sport holds the current top speed record – clocked at 268mph with its electronic speed limiter deactivated.

According to Dürheimer, the Bugatti engineering team ‘knows the Chiron is faster, but not by how much’. However, there will have been plenty of computer simulations to give the company confidence about a significant improvement on the record. Sources suggest 288mph is definitely possible, but whether Bugatti discovers a way to find another 12mph and be first to that tantalising 300mph target remains to be seen.

The new Chiron makes almost 300bhp more than its Veyron Super Sport predecessor. The top speed is limited to 261mph for “road use”, but the firm states this is “by no means the end of the road” for the Chiron. The speedo runs up to 500kmh (310mph).

The Chiron will accelerate from 0–100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.4 seconds according to the manufacturer, 0–200 km/h (124 mph) in under 6.5 seconds and 0–300 km/h (186 mph) in under 13.6 seconds. The Chiron's top speed is electronically limited to 420 km/h (261 mph) for safety reasons. The anticipated full top speed of the Bugatti Chiron is believed to be around 463 km/h (288 mph). Its predecessor (the Bugatti Veyron SS) makes almost 300 less bhp than the new Chiron, and although the Chiron's limiter gets it only to 261 mph the speedometer gets up to 310 mph.

Bugatti has made this monumental speed possible by enlarging each of the four turbos and introducing an innovative new two-stage spooling system. A titanium exhaust also features, as do six enormous catalytic converters. The manufacturer also claims the Chiron uses the highest-performance clutch ever fitted to a passenger car. Carbon silicon carbide brakes with eight pistons rein all that power in, as does the air-brake that protrudes from the rear haunches.

But this isn’t just a straight-line weapon, according to Bugatti. The carbon body is based around a new carbon-fibre monocoque chassis, which should mean it’s considerably lighter. It gets an adaptive suspension system and specially developed tyres, and is claimed to be “an agile, modern Bugatti with handling that ensures maximum driving pleasure”.

The bold mix of curves and straight lines for the exterior is striking. At the front it gets a sculpted bonnet and low headlights, while round the back, a unique 1.6m long LED light strip features. It’s taller and wider than the Veyron, with increased space in the cabin. Inside you’ll also find luxury features like a high-end sound system, WiFi and 31 leather trim colour options.

Only 500 examples of the Chiron will be built, and over 200 of those have already been snapped up by customers.

Fun fact:At full chat, the Chiron will empty its 100 litre fuel tank in 8 minutes flat!
