“It’s Unreal” – Bugatti Chiron Adds Another 5-Stars To Review Meter

The more we read about what the new Bugatti Chiron is like to drive, the more we sense that few people have even scratched the surface of what this thing can do.

Drivetribe’s Jethro Bovingdon is only the latest reviewer to have a go in the Chiron, and much like other lucky peers, he’s also blown away not just by the car’s power, but its traction and how planted it feels on the road.

We suppose Bugatti meant for the Chiron to be as easy to drive as possible, so that people who will afford to buy one can relax behind the wheel, while also putting 1,500 HP to use at any given moment.

One of the many things that amazes about the Chiron is the fact that Bugatti had to put an electronic limiter on it.

It’s almost mind-boggling to think that this car could be, and probably is considerably faster than advertised (what its tires can cope with) – which in a sense is what Bovingdon summarizes when saying that the Chiron’s performance is “charting new territory”. For a hypercar, that is about as high a praise as one can give.

    what is the capacity of the fuel tank and how long does that last when travelling at maximum acceleration to top speed?

    • alexxx

      probably lasts for 15 minutes

    I respect the car for what it is and what it can do, but it does nothing for me. This isn’t coming from the position of I’ll never be able to afford it, so I’ll hate it. I’ve got a fantasy garage, like I’m sure we all do on here, but the Veyron or the Chiron wouldn’t even make it into mine.

    Now that I”ve seen the Chiron in all black, WOW WOW WOW. Suddenly I find this car very beautiful, intimidating, and just crazy looking in that special way that a hyper super duper car should look! I’d almost, just almost, have it over my current favorite, the LaFerrari. Except, have you HEARD the LaFerrari at full acceleration? The Chiron’s engine note, sadly, is kind of flat, never screams, and does very little for me. And to me, terrific engine noise is an intrinsic part of the theatre, the show, the experience so essential to a high performance car.
    Aside from that though, how can you not love what VW group has done here? An exceptional work of rolling art, inside and out.

      Funny I had the exact same feeling regarding the all black. I have suddenly come to like its looks.
      Could never take to those weird multi colors.

      The Chiron’s engine note fits its muscular personality. Its baritone becomes addictive the more you listen to it.

  • Infinite1

    The Veyron was crazy fast in a straight line but never gave me the wow factor that the likes of the Ferrari’s or Lamborghini’s do. The Chiron may very well change that.

  • alexxx

    you can see by the look on his face when he smiles that its something else…
    it is fantastic,probably overwhelming…
    but that back end…just don’t like it…who cares..

  • disqus_83g6mJmr6l

    which are the contenders of this magical machine? (p1?la fe’?918…) or is it a stand alone?
