When Wolfgang Dürheimer (President, Bugatti Automobiles) was asked to plan a successor of Bugatti Veyron, he knew that he had to better the best and produce something invincible. Chiron was the outcome! So, do you think Chiron has all the ingredients to become the worlds fastest street-legal production car? The statistics on paper some how does –
- Powered by an 8.0-liter quad-turbo W-16 engine
- 1,500 Bhp
- 1600 Nm torque
- 310 mph speedometer (500 km/h)
The aforementioned specifications indeed has all the necessary hardware to outrun the outgoing Veyron and break the record for the fastest street-legal production car. The super car will cost a whopping $2.6 million (Rs.17.41 crores).
Bugatti says the 2000kg Chiron is “the world’s first production sports car with 1500 hp.” It’s best to simply shelve any expectations of modesty on Bugatti’s part. After all, when the car you’re replacing produced 1200 horsepower, hit 258 mph, and cost more than 17 Crores , adding an extra 300 horsepower, 3 mph of governed top speed, and half a million to the window sticker matters. The Chiron’s redesigned 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W-16 engine produces 1500 horsepower, 300 more than the outgoing Veyron Super Sport.
So wonderstruck! We are completely confident that the Chiron will trump the Veyron in all departments. It is undoubtedly an engineering masterpiece and the aficionados should be properly enthralled; atleast those who have the means to buy one!
So how does the Chiron sound? Play the video –
