As promised on November 30th, 2015, Bugatti celebrated the world premiere of the all-new Chiron today at the 2016 Geneva Auto Show. It’s being hailed as the world’s fastest, most powerful, most luxurious, and most exclusive supercar.
Delivering a galactic 1,500 horsepower, which is unprecedented for a production automobile, the Bugatti Chiron can reach speeds up to 420 km/h (electronically limited). Each of the 500 units to be built in Molsheim will cost at least €2.4 million (nearly $3.5 million CAD). A third of them have already been sold, apparently.
About that power: The 8.0L W16 engine was completely revised and uses four new, larger turbochargers controlled by the Bugatti two-stage turbocharging system.
Meanwhile, the lightweight new carbon fibre monocoque, newly designed adaptive chassis, specially developed tires, and other innovative technologies combine to make the Chiron not only a champion in terms of maximum acceleration, but also a nimble, modern Bugatti with handling that maximizes driving pleasure.
