The big daddy of all cars, Bugatti Chiron is all set for its public debut at the Geneva International Motor Show, on March 1, 2016 at 9.45 CET. Yes, Bugatti has set the official countdown on its website to count the days and hours left for the big premiere. The Volkswagen Group owned French hyper car manufacturer created a lot of buzz with the opening of the official website today.
The Chiron hyper car, will succeed the Veyron hyper car, which in many sorts, was the true engineering marvel. The Bugatti Veyron was the first ever road-legal car to breach the 400 kmph mark and also the first car to house a 1000+ bhp engine. Naturally, the aspirations from the Veyron's successor had to be and Bugatti is leaving no stone unturned to place the product on the top of the automotive world.
After all the 450 units of the Bugatti Veyron were sold in little over 10 years of its launch, Bugatti announced its successor. We saw the first glimpse of the Chiron in the Vision Gran Turismo Concept and going by the spy shots, it seems like Chiron is largely based on the Vision Concept. Bugatti is saying that the Chiron design will be more evolutionary rather than revolutionary, but are still hopeful for a stunner.
But it's not the looks or the interiors that make the Bugatti products special, but the engine does. Many gossips, rumors and reports regarding the technical specifications indicates that the Chiron will be powered by the Veyron’s quad turbocharged 8.0-litre W16 engine, with a thoroughly upgraded and possible e-turbo technology.
The engine will crank upto 1500 horsepower and 1500 Nm of torque. That much power is unheard for any car and is incredible in itself. And with so much power, Bugatti Chiron can literally be talking to the winds in a couple of seconds. Expect the Chiron to do a 0-100 kmph sprint in 2.2 seconds and a maximum touchdown of 467 kmph. Shocking? We bet!
Unlike the Veyron, where Bugatti took 10 years to build 450 units, Chiron will be produced at a rate of 100 units per year for next 5 years, chucking out 500 units. Each unit is expected to priced around $2.19 million and already 100 super rich people have placed orders for the beast. These 500 units will also include the Targa version, slated to arrive in 2018, and will be more expensive than the coupe.
