Bugatti Chiron Pair Conduct ‘Ring Testing, Raise Some Questions

Two Chirons were spied at the Nurburgring earlier this week. Both of them appeared to be stock, although the roll cage that was fitted and the safety gear worn by the crew suggest that these could be some kind of testing prototypes.

If we were to speculate, we’d say that Bugatti is probably prepping yet another special edition, like the Sport or the 110 Ans.

Another possibility is that they’re using the Chiron’s body on different underpinnings, maybe for the long-rumored second Bugatti. CEO Stephan Winkelmann has already alluded to that, saying that it will be in a different segment than the Chiron – and nothing more…

More coach-built models, in the vein of the La Voiture Noire, cannot be ruled out either. Also, despite the official denials about a Chiron Super Sport developed to set a new top speed record for production cars, it is still thought to be a strong contender.

One year ago, we saw another couple being unleashed at the German track, and we were none the wiser back then than we are know as to their true identity. Until we do learn anything, though, we can bask in that thunderous quad-turbo W16 engine disturb the peace around the Nordschleife.

    One has a db sound sensor and what looks like a stress sensor for the glass roof to stress test it on track.
    the Chiron is so much better than the Veyron. Truly is in a class of its own.

      I think you might be onto something, the second car is clearly different, it sounds it, and you can see the rear breaks and wheels are different, and that happens to be the one with the sensor on the top passenger side roof.

        Not really. The bugs wear WOB plates (Wolfsburg(VW HQ)). VW has been using those plates a few times already when testing the Chiron on the ring/streets.
