Bugatti Teases Chiron As Countdown To Reveal Begins

With less than a week left until Geneva Auto Show opens its gates for the media, Bugatti has released a new teaser with the anticipated Veyron successor.

The image, posted on Facebook, doesn’t reveal much, except for the signature horseshoe grille and the countdown until the manufacturer will pull the covers off its body, next Tuesday, on March 1, at 09.45 CET.

Previous data indicate that the design of the Chiron will be very close to the Vision Gran Turismo concept, minus the large rear wing, which will be replaced by an air brake similar to the one found on its predecessor.

The Veyron’s 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine will reportedly be adopted by the new hypercar in an upgraded form, capable of producing up to 1,500PS (1,479hp) and 1,500Nm (1,107lb-ft) of torque, enough to propel the machine from a standstill to 100km/h (62mph) in roughly 2.3 seconds and up to a top speed of 470km/h (290mph).

The numbers are yet to be confirmed, as Bugatti hasn’t announced anything just yet apart for its name and the fact that it will debut at the Swiss event. However, if reports turn out to be true, then most of the 500 units assigned for production have been already sold.
