Bugatti Chiron one step closer to reality, teased as Christmas Card

Snapshot: The Bugatti Christmas Card outlines what Chiron may look like ahead of debut in March at the Geneva Motorshow.

With the announcement that Bugatti Chiron is going to make debut at the Geneva Motorshow next year, the next-generation hypercar is moving closer to the reality. Bugatti Chiron was kept under the wraps for quite some time before spy shots started surfacing on web, and now the French manufacturer has teased their next hypercar on a Christmas Card.

The Bugatti Christmas Card outlines what Chiron may look like ahead of debut in March at the Geneva Motorshow. Bugatti earlier confirmed that the Veyron replacement will actually be named Chiron, paying tribute to Bugatti works driver Louis Chiron. Bugatti has been showing a sketch of Chiron to prospective buyers in private events and the tease is in-line with the sketch, revealing the sleek side profile.  

While not much is known about the looks, it's clear that the next-generation hypercar will be based on its predecessor, Veyron, for the basic profile. Going by the spy shots, it's clear that the Chiron will be much sleeker from every angle, and it will lose the bulky rear-end to make way for a more streamlined structure. And we have already seen those massive air intakes on both the sides of the car.

But then, Bugattis are not meant to please the audience with looks, but with performance. It's rumored that the Chiron will sport a quad-turbo W16 8.0-litre engine with 1500 hp and 1500 Nm output. The output is so massive that the Chiron will do a 0-100 kmph sprint in under 2.3 seconds with a top speed touching 500 kmph. That's much quicker than the Veyron Super Sport WRE, fastest Bugatti ever.

Evidently, Bugatti took 10 years to sell out 450 units of Veyron, making it an unprofitable gamble. But with Chiron, the Volkswagen group owned manufacturer has high hopes and the car has already registered more than 100 pre-orders. Bugatti previewed the model as the Vision Gran Turismo concept and called it "more of everything", creating much anticipation in the market.

Bugatti is planning to sell more than 500 units of the Chiron before their next launch, the Chiron Targa in 2018. An open top and a coupe body type will be offered to the customers. We hope that Bugatti soon publishes more images and details of the Chiron before the Geneva debut in March.

Till then, you can see the Vision Gran Turismo concept here!
