If Bugatti Veyron was not fast enough then just wait for Chiron to arrive
There have been rumors about Bugatti working on a Veyron successor, and now it is confirmed as VW Group chairman Martin Winterkorn confirmed it in an interview with German magazine Bild AM. The supercar is going to be called Buggati Chiron and it won’t be a surprise if it catches everyone by surprise when it is going to be finally released sometime next year. The car will be lighter and faster as compared to a decade old Veyron, all thanks to its technologically advanced electrically driven turbochargers with all-wheel torque vectoring.
Bugatti Chiron will be powered by an improved quad-turbo 8.0-liter W-16 engine that will produce 1,500 horsepower and a torque of 1,100 pound-feet. And it is going to have a hybrid drivetrain which is even more impressive. The result is an acceleration of 0-60 mph in flat 2 seconds and a top speed of 280 mph. Whoah, are we talking about fast cars today or what!
The drivetrain of this supercar will be mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission that will be hard to handle for naïve drivers. To keep bodyweight to a minimum, the supercar will have carbonfibre monocoque shell design and improved interiors for the driver’s pleasure.
The car will hit the roads in 2017 if everything goes to plan and we’ll have more information on this developing story in the coming months. Till then, enjoy the other cool stuff posted here.
