Bugatti Chiron Will Nudge 470 Km/h, Czech Report Says

Prior to its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2016 in March, new reports have surfaced online suggesting the Veyron’s replacement could be capable of hitting 290 mph (467 km/h).

Although it has yet to be confirmed, the Chiron is widely tipped to have 1,500 hp on tap and, according to Czech publication Magazin ProDriver CZ, 1,107 lb-ft of torque.

These hugely impressive numbers will come courtesy of the quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 of the Veyron paired to some form of electric assistance.

Beyond a reported 290 mph top speed, the report goes on to claim that the Chiron will accelerate from a standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.2 seconds, 0.3 seconds faster than the Veyron Super Sport.

Whereas 450 examples of the Veyron were produced, it is believed that Bugatti will produce a total of 500 units of its new hypercar, with up to 130 orders apparently already placed. Production could sit at 100 units per year, over double that of the Veyron that was produced over the span of a decade. Pricing will reportedly sit at $2.19 million.

From a design standpoint, we know the Chiron will feature cues from the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo concept that was unveiled last September at Frankfurt. As a matter of fact, those that have already seen the Chiron claim it looks almost identical to the Vision Gran Turismo, albeit without all the outlandish aerodynamic aids.
