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…

        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.
