A Closer Look At Bugatti’s New 1,500PS Chiron, The World’s Fastest Production Car

Ever since Bugatti announced the Veyron’s finale everybody wondered what sort of beast could replace one of the most iconic and over-engineered automobiles of the century.

Going by the Chiron name, the new car has a more aggressive aura than its predecessor, being wider, lower and more intricately detailed than the Veyron. These traits conceal the absolute beast under the hood that can leave the bygone legend in the dust – no matter which way you look it at it.

Now, don’t get us wrong, Bugatti’s new model was tailored and styled to meet state-of-the-art aerodynamic requirements, and also to be reminiscent of the iconic classics that helped built the legendary Bugatti name – from the Atlantic to the Royale – but nothing prepares you for the new 8.0-litre that boasts 1,500PS (1,479hp) and a mind-blowing 1,600 Nm (1,180 lb-ft) of peak torque

The vehicle’s whole existence revolves around this redeveloped quad-turbo’d W16 engine and the performance it can deliver, pushing the Chiron from 0 to 100 km/h in “less than 2.5 seconds” and all the way to a top speed of 420 km/h (about 260 mph); it’s no surprise that a new speed record is in sight for Bugatti.

With a limited run of only 500 units, each with a mind-blowing $2.6 million price tag, the new Chiron undoubtedly is one of the most exclusive cars ever made.
