Bugatti Chiron Super Sport Allegedly On Track For 2019 Geneva Show Premiere

Rumors surrounding a Super Sport variant of the Bugatti Chiron have been circulating for quite some time, and it seems that the Molsheim-based automaker is indeed going to launch such a version.

Quoting undisclosed sources within the company, TheSupercarBlog says that Bugatti is planning a more extreme version of the Chiron for the 2019 Geneva Motor Show that kicks off next March.

The model was reportedly shown to potential customers during the Divo’s unveiling a couple of months ago, in official sketches. At the time, it was described as a “ground-to-ground missile” and “a beauty of speed”.

If the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport is indeed coming fast our way, then it might benefit from a few aerodynamic updates and a slight diet that should make it a tad lighter than the Chiron Sport, which in turn weighs 18 kg (40 lbs) less than the ‘regular’ Chiron.

Powering it will be the same quad-turbo 8.0-liter W16 engine found in the Chiron and Divo. However, the publication believes that it will probably be tuned to deliver more than 1,500 PS (1,479 hp / 1,103 kW) and 1,600 Nm (1,180 lb-ft) of torque, although the exact number is unknown.

This might allow Bugatti to finally chase after the land speed record for production cars again, which CEO Stephan Winkelmann said was “not a priority” in an interview with CNBC earlier this year.

Production of the Chiron Super Sport will be apparently limited, with 20 to 40 units expected to see the light of day. Unsurprisingly, the car firm is said to have a number of orders already.

  • THE LOWLY BASE CHIRON ALREADY HAS 1500 HP SO IT’S A GIVEN A FASTER CAR WOULD HAVE MORE.

    No. don’t rush for your chequebooks. If Bugatti hasn’t called you by this time, you won’t be able to buy one anyway.

    No offense to this marvelous vehicle and it’s sibling trim levels, but until it starts breaking records like its predecessor did, it’s just a show car to me. Prove yourself instead of being the best prospect out of college. It’s still sitting on the sidelines in the pros to me.

    Hand me a towle rook 😂

    “not a priority” my a$$. What was this car made for you know… We all know Stephan’s got a pair, so he needs to use them and get this line of Chiron’s into their green angry mode.

  • That was fast, I would be pissed if I’m ordering Chiron Sport right now.

      This would already be sold out and you’d have to own another Chiron first as well like the Divo. I think it’s supposed to be rarer then the Divo and people bought Chirons and Chiron Sports just to be given the opportunity to get it, so I doubt those people would even be looking at the Super Sport as well.
