2017 Bugatti Chiron- More Car, Less Weapon of Mass Destruction
The 2017 Bugatti Chiron at first glance may appear to be a weapon on four wheels, with its distinctive horseshoe-shaped grille, large “C” side body elements, and large rear spoiler. Don’t be fooled, it’s a car, but a very special car that holds a unique place in automotive development.
The first generation Chiron was created with 1,001 horsepower, just enough to surpass the Peugeot P88 by 1 mph. So it reached the pinnacle of development? Well, not exactly. Next came the Super Sport with 1,200 horsepower. Now the Chiron will contain 1,500 horses yet will still be drivable on the road, though unfortunately limited to 261 mph by a governor for road use. On the track, Bugatti plans to break its own Guinness Book of World Records 267.8 mph set in 2010 with a Veyron Super Sport.
The powerplant for the 2017 Bugatti Chiron is its W-16 engine with 7.993-liter displacement and four 2-stage turbochargers developing maximum torque at 2000 RPM. This torque is maintained until reaching 6000 RPM, offering pulse-raising acceleration and performance only dreamed about in other supercars.
Inside the Chiron, precision craftsmanship and elegance show in every surface. Nothing is faked: 16 leather hides are used throughout, real metal rather than plated plastic is used as needed, and a large analog speedometer retains a sense of elegant old style versus a blank digital screen used in many cars. The Chiron is also quieter than its predecessors, providing a greater comfort level.
