Named after the mythological centaur, the successor of the mighty Veyron holds the title of the fastest car in the world … Ladies and gentlemen, we present you the new Bugatti Chiron. It was first presented at the Motor Show in Geneva.
Recently, the first draws and animated videos of how the Bugatti Veyron’s successor will look like appeared, but there were some changes in the final design. Let us introduce you completely new Chiron through 8 amazing facts.
Yes, that’s right. The cavalry of the machine counts 1,500! At first sight, those numbers seem too much for a vehicle that can be driven on the streets quite legally. Despite that figure, the Bugatti says that the driver has control over the vehicle at any speed. When it comes to torque, Chiron’s meter counts 1.600 Nm available in the range of 2000 to 6000 rpm.
The largest share of these figures has the 8.0-liter W16 engine. This engine has 32 fuel injectors and significantly reduced weight when compared to its predecessor Veyron. At maximum draining, it sucks 60,000 liters of air per minute.
Almost entirely built of carbon fiber
For the first time, even the back of the car is made of carbon fiber. He cover of the air bag is constructed of such material as well.
Fully adaptable new chassis
Chiron is the first Bugatti which has adaptable chassis, something that pushes the boundaries of G – Force in the curves and gives greater stability at high speeds. It offers 5 different driving programs, and contact with the asphalt accomplished through unique Michelin tires made specifically for this supercar. The name of the brakes that it uses is Formula One-grade, which tells us how racing-oriented is this vehicle.
The maximum speed of Chiron is 420 km / h … Or?
The maximum speed of this supercar is 420 km/h, a figure slightly higher than that of its predecessor. Indeed, with 1500 horsepower, 500 more than the Veyron, the Chiron can do better. Yes, better! 420 km/h limited speed of Bugatti, because it would be too much for the public roads. The automotive company still has not presented data on its maximum speed without stop.Acceleration to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds. Need we say more?
Although it is a supercar, the Chiron can also brag about other advantages besides the numbers. The luxury inside the car is at the same level as in the most prestigious sedans, and the car logo is made of the best quality silver.
The design is a retrospective to the first Bugatti cars
Have you noticed something about Chiron that reminds you of its ancestors? Chiron is not as retro-designed as a Mustang with almost identical blinking lights or a BMW with a two-part grille. However, the idea of the design and some of the lines are inspired by many old models of the same brand.
The price is 2.4 million euros
The price of this car requires a second reading because it is too much money to believe at first. Want one? – Stand in line. But before that, it is desirable to have a bag of money.
Only 500 vehicles will be produced
Like all previous models of Bugatti, the Chiron will be an extra limited edition. Despite the high price, a third of the total number of vehicles is already sold and it is expected to be delivered next fall.
