Four years into the Veyron’s official launch in 2005, the even faster Grand Sport came along.
The Chironhas just made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show and, with 1,500 hp, it easily eclipses the most powerful variant of its predecessor.
If this number sounds ludicrous, remember that there are already not a few hypercars out there that nudge or even exceed the 1k mark, a figure previously unthinkable for a road-legal car. Even if the likes of Ferrari or McLaren don’t indulge in the power race, Bugatti is nevertheless keen on pushing the envelope as much as possible.
Thus, if the past is any indication, at some point we should expect something akin to the Grand Sport for the Chiron. In the Veyron, apart from its upgraded engine, it had the added bonus of a removable roof. Open-top motoring was limited to 369 km/h (229 mph) – you probably wouldn’t want to go faster in that configuration anyway…
Here’s how it could like, then. Design-wise, this rendering is more convincing than the one we saw last month, when images of the new Bugatti weren’t even official yet. Being a long way into the future, it’s a logical conclusion that we’ll see many more coming our way.
