Bugatti Chiron Vs. Veyron SS Is The Battle We’ve All Been Waiting For

Back in 2010 when Bugatti first unveiled the limited edition Veyron Super Sport, its 1,200 HP and 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft) of torque made it the fastest production car in the world, for a relatively brief period of time.

The automaker even had to limit the Super Sport’s top speed to “just” 415 km/h (258 mph) for safety reasons, although a high-speed test run revealed that it could average 431.07 km/h (268 mph), achieved at the VW Group’s proving grounds at Ehra-Lessien.

With the Chiron, while Bugatti has yet to max it out (early estimates have it at 420 km/h / 260 mph), we can still tell you that its new 8.0-liter W16 engine produces 1,500 HP and 1,600 Nm (1,180 lb-ft) of torque, giving it a clear advantage over its predecessor.

During a recent Driving Force Club (DFC) event, the two ultimate Bugattis lined up next to each other and had themselves two straight line brawls, both from a standstill.

It’s worth mentioning that for the Chiron, Bugatti developed a two-stage turbocharging system meant to take away any hint of lag, while its clutch is said to be the “largest, high-performance clutch ever” in a passenger car.

In the end, you should really like the Chiron’s chances against the Veyron SS, although the latter is obviously more than capable of putting up a good fight.

    That’s is a stupidly short runway for racing Bugatti’s. Nothing larger than a Cessna can take off there.
