Chronology
Predecessor Bugatti Veyron

The Bugatti Chiron is a mid-engined two-seated sports car developed and manufactured in Molsheim, France, by Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. as the successor to the Bugatti Veyron.[5] The Chiron was first shown at the Geneva Motor Show on March 1, 2016.[6][7] The car was based on the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo concept car.

The car is named after the Monegasque driver Louis Chiron.[8]

Specifications

The main carryover piece from the Veyron is the 8-litre W16 quad-turbocharged engine, though it is heavily updated. The Chiron has 1,103 kW (1,500 PS; 1,479 bhp) of power and 1,600 N·m (1,180 lb·ft) of torque starting from 2000 rpm. Its predecessor Veyron SS makes 220 kW (299 PS; 295 bhp) less than the new Chiron, the Veyron produces 883 kW (1,200 PS; 1,184 bhp).[9]

Like its predecessor, the Veyron, it has a carbon fibre body structure, independent suspension and a Haldex AWD system.[10][11][12] The carbon fibre body has a stiffness of 50,000 Nm per degree.[13]

The Chiron can accelerate from 0–97 km/h (60 mph) in 2.4 seconds according to the manufacturer,[4] 0–200 km/h (120 mph) in 6.5 seconds and 0–300 km/h (190 mph) in 13.6 seconds. In a world-record-setting test, Chiron reached 400 km/h (250 mph) in 32.6 seconds, after which it needed 9.4 seconds to brake to standstill.[14]

The Chiron's top speed is electronically limited to 420 km/h (261 mph) for safety reasons.[2] The anticipated full top speed of the Bugatti Chiron is believed to be around 463 km/h (288 mph).

Sales

The first 200 Chirons were sold before the first delivery of the car.[15] The base price is 2,400,000[16] (US$2,700,000 at the August 2016 exchange rate),[15] and buyers were required to place a 200,000 (US$226,000 at the August 2016 exchange rate) deposit.[15]

Performance

At the 2017 IAA show in Frankfurt, Bugatti announced that the Chiron broke the record of fastest 0–400–0 km/h (0–248.5–0 mph), completing it in 41.96 seconds in a span of 2 miles (3.2 kilometres) at the Ehra-Lessien high-speed oval. The car was driven by Colombian racing driver Juan Pablo Montoya.[17][18][19]

Bugatti also added extra livery to the Chiron that they used to confirm that it was the same car that broke 0–400–0 km/h (0–248.5–0 mph) the fastest.[20] During the show, Bugatti also mentioned that during the run, the car went 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in 2.4 seconds, 0–200 km/h (0–124 mph) in 6.1 seconds, 0–300 km/h (0–186 mph) in 13.1 seconds, and 0–400 km/h (0–248.5 mph) in 32.6 seconds, which altogether, also makes the Chiron much faster than its predecessor, the Bugatti Veyron.[20]

However, these were in a single direction. World records require passes made in opposite directions to counter the possible effects of wind.
