You are about to watch the first ever video highlighting the specs and driving impressions of the Bugatti Chiron. We’re talking about a supercar with a spec sheet packed with world-conquering figures: close to 1,500 horsepower, 1,180 lb-ft of torque, a top speed in excess of 260 mph, a price tag of about $3 million, just to name just a few.
However, the video will show that the Chiron’s impressive specs don’t tell even half the story. Serving as the successor to the legendary Bugatti Veyron, the Chiron is more than just an upgrade…there is more of everything! It is powered by a radically revised version of the W16 engine found in the Veyron. The 8.0-liter motor now has four turbochargers which are 69% larger.
The heavily refined mill allows the car to go from zero to 62 mph in less than 2.5 seconds. The exact top speed of the Chiron remains a mystery, but Bugatti engineers are confident that it can surpass the 268 mph record that was set by the Veyron Super Sport. In fact, the speedometer goes all the way up to a mind-melting 500 kph or 310 mph.
Make no mistake about it, the Bugatti Chiron is far more potent and prettier than its predecessor. It’s loaded with amazing details like the headlights which Bugatti calls “eight eyes, a rear brake light with 82 LEDs in a single strip, a larger active rear wing, bigger carbon ceramic brakes, gigantic Michelin tires, and an imposing interior unlike anything you’ve seen before.
Now that you have the figures and details, you maybe wondering how the car drives. Well, nothing short of spectacular. It’s a 4,000-pound vehicle but it feels very nimble, the steering is precise and the power delivery is impeccable. Bugatti has certainly raised the bar again with this one.
