It won’t be long before Bugatti’s new progeny makes its world debut, but more information about the upcoming hypercar is getting out.
We already know that the Chiron will use the gargantuan 8.0-liter, quad-turbo W16 powerhouse of its predecessor, with power increased to 1,500 PS.
The 0 to 100 km/h sprint will allegedly take 2.2 seconds and a downforce-generating spoiler is supposed to come out at 120 mph (193 km/h). The 1,500 horsepower figure remains a steady milestone, and Bugatti will allegedly clock the machine around the Nurburgring.
Only 500 units will be made, with a production run of 75 units per year. Tires will cost $14,000 (!), but that’s to be expected on a $2.6 million speed-demon.
Yeah it does look like this (going off the top of my head). 0 to 60 in 2.2, spoiler comes out at 120 mph, 1500 hp, they are going to track it around the ring and try to get a time. 14k for 4 tires. 75 to be made per year with 500 total to be made. About 30% coming to usa. Plenty left to be sold (I know the number but they might not appreciate me saying it). Starting at 2.6 million usd.A photo posted by @bayareanady on Feb 5, 2016 at 3:08pm PST
