Chiron Vs. 760HP Mercedes-AMG GT R Race Shows How Fast The Bugatti Is

With a quad-turbo 8.0-liter W16 engine making 1,479 hp (1,500 PS / 1,103 kW) and 1,180 lb-ft (1,600 Nm) of torque, the Bugatti Chiron is a fire-breathing monster.

It has the ability to sprint to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 2.5 seconds. And while its top speed is still a well-preserved secret, it’s more than capable of venturing deeply into the 400+ km/h (249 mph) territory.

Thus, it doesn’t have many rivals in the real world, which is why it has already scored a few wins against some other powerful machines. As for the latest adventure, the Chiron was challenged on a 1,000-meter (3,281 feet) run, from a 50 km/h (31 mph) rolling start, by a Mercedes-AMG GT R.

Surely, the stock German supercar would be no match for the Bugatti Chiron, but this example boasts 761 hp (771 PS / 568 kW) and 632 lb-ft (857 Nm) of torque from its twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 that was tuned by Renntech.

As per the tuner’s estimates, the extra 184 hp (187 PS / 137 kW) and 116 lb-ft (157 Nm) of torque is enough to help it sprint to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.0 seconds. Also, it can run the quarter mile in 10.7 seconds, at 136 mph (219 km/h). So, on a good day, this Mercedes-AMG GT R has what it takes to put numerous supercars in their corners.

Things are obviously very different when it has to face a proper hypercar, such as the Chiron; as powerful as it may be, this Mercedes-AMG GT R is just no match for the Bugatti. But just to understand the difference between the two, we’ll tell you that the Chiron crossed the finish line at 328 km/h (204 mph) and the Merc at 276 km/h (172 mph).

    This is some weird racing. Staggered rolling starts and no results. The tuning on that 991.2 Turbo is pig-rich. It looks like it’s rolling coal. LOL!

      LOL… yeah for a second there, I thought that 911 was a turbo diesel LOL

    What is this? What do you want to show? Waste of time.

    How is this enjoyable to watch? Stop posting these videos where you can’t even see the race from any half decent point of view – ideally side by side. Utter waste of time especially considering the car being raced. Either get them some GoPro’s or professional videographers or stop submitting these.

    boring as …..

  • john1168

    Another USELESS video! The camera is at the start line, it’s another stupid roll race so I have no idea what’s going on at the start and then we have absolutely no idea what’s going on at the finish line because….. the camera is at the start line…UGH!

    Is it too hard to put a camera on the finish line?
