The car is no longer a ‘super’ car. It is now moved to the league of the mega cars as it produces more than one megawatt of power or 1,341 hp. The Bugatti Chiron is therefore very well-positioned to become the next world speed record holder and reach a maximum speed significantly above the record currently held by the Veyron Super Sports. I short the new Chiron is redefining the benchmarks of what the fastest production car should accomplish.
Distinct 20-inch front and 21-inch rear rims are adorned by high performance tyres from Michelin. The line C-bar is not only a beautiful styling line but it is also helps to improve engine ventilation. Fresh air enters behind the A-pillar at the level of the window. The air is absorbed by the C-bar, guided through to the wheel arch and leaves the car via the rear.

82 Super RED LED lamps ensure that all road-users can immediately see that a Bugatti Chiron is driving ahead of them. The rear spoiler (the “air brake”) emphatically accentuates the unparalleled performance generated by the rear-mounted power plant of the Bugatti. The rear air brake, which deploys at different driving modes and during braking, extends over the full width of the vehicle.

The power plant allows the Chiron to clock a limited speed of 420km/h. However, Bugatti is expected to max the car without any limiters as it aims to beat the record set by the Veyron Super Sports. The W16 impressive numbers are delivered in part by four larger, higher-performance turbochargers. They are operated in a two-stage configuration.

The digital displays high-resolution graphics are extremely sharp. The principle is that the driver should be offered only the information that is necessary in view of the driving mode that is active. The faster the Bugatti Chiron is driven, the simpler the presentation becomes.

But that is not all. In line with the principle that a huge variety of functions should be presented in a way which is clear and allows intuitive operation, the second level of each indicator provides additional functions for the monitoring of driving performance data, also allowing individual programming, if the driver so desires.
