Bugatti Chiron Is An Angry Sounding Beast

While BMW unveiled a new quad-turbo diesel engine at the Vienna Motor Symposium, Bugatti used the show to display its latest hypercar, the Chiron.

Arriving in style right before the event opened its gates, the hypercar was unloaded from a truck, eager to pose for the camera. The guy holding the wheel couldn’t help himself from offering a small show for bystanders, who reached for their phones and started filming the cold startups and hard revs.

Trying to figure it out whether it sounds better than the Veyron or the Vitesse that flexed their muscles here, could be subjective, but we will remind you that responsible for sending the $2.6 million Bugatti Chiron from a standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.5 seconds is an updated version of the same 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 mill used in its predecessor.

The engine has been taken up to 1,500 HP and 1,600 Nm (1,180 pound-feet) of torque, allowing the Chiron to sprint from zero to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 6.5 seconds, to 300 km/h (186 mph) in 13.5 seconds and up to a top speed that currently stands at 420 km/h (260 mph).

      Sick af if f’ken right bro!!

  • Bash

    very beautiful, its about time for someone, somewhere apply a pink/purple paint job and ruin this pure beauty..

    • Kash

      I dunno. Flo Rida wrapped his Veyron in pink for breast cancer awareness and it looked pretty nice.

      • Bash

        true… just checked it out and its not bad at all…

  • Six_Tymes

    some one review this monster soon please.

  • Kash

    The black with aluminum(?) bits looks amazing especially with the two tone rims. The only thing I’d add is on the hood, that spine should be aluminum as well, that’d be perfect.

  • Romanovich

    a lot of smog

  • CFK

    Nice, but it´s horrible.

  • Vassilis

    Looking forward to seeing more and more of these. Incredible.

  • fabri99

    I’m not really loving it.
    I don’t like the rear end and, overall, it just looks like a Veyron 2.0. It was great and mind-blowing in 2005…In 2016? Not so much, especially if compared to hybrid innovative rivals.

  • Riley Kennington

    bad ass sounds

    • Exposing B-LIES-Matter

      Hell yes!

  • Riley Kennington

    bugatti Chiron is a bad ass car

    • Exposing B-LIES-Matter

      Agreed!!

  • Axiom Ethos

    And yet still slower than the 300hp less Veyron Super Sport. Not really what I’d envisioned as a proper followup for Bugatti to shine in the way it did when the Veyron first came out. The P1 and these other hybrids are a lot more interesting to talk about these days.

    • Bash

      wait until they release the new whatever sport version or super sport or some special edition as they always do.. im sure by then you will just have what you’ve might envisioned …

    • Exposing B-LIES-Matter

      Not slower by any means.

  • psiqtas

    Not so impressive at all…but wait a minute – where does all this steam come from – leaky exhaust?!

    • Exposing B-LIES-Matter

      Perhaps because you can’t afford one.

  • Exposing B-LIES-Matter

    Need One!!!

  • Dredd

    madness
