The car is named in honor of the Monegasque driver Louis Chiron.

Specifications

The main carryover piece will be the 8-litre W16 quad-turbocharged engine, though it is heavily updated. The Chiron has 1,103 kW (1,500 PS; 1,479 bhp) of power and 1,600 N·m (1,180 lb·ft) of torque starting from 2000 rpm. Like its predecessor, the Veyron, it has a carbon fibre body structure, independent suspension and AWD system. The carbon fibre body has a stiffness of 50,000 Nm per degree.

The Chiron will accelerate from 0–100 km/h (60 mph) in under 2.5 seconds according to the manufacturer, 0–200 km/h (120 mph) in under 6.5 seconds and 0–300 km/h (190 mph) in under 13.6 seconds. The Chiron's top speed is electronically limited to 420 km/h (260 mph) for safety reasons. The anticipated full top speed of the Bugatti Chiron is believed to be around 463 km/h (288 mph). Its predecessor (the Bugatti Veyron SS) makes almost 220 kW (300 bhp) less than the new Chiron.

Sales

The Chiron was an instant success when it was released, with 200 units having been sold before the first delivery of the car. The base price is €2,400,000 ($2,700,000 at the August 2016 exchange rate), and buyers are required to place a €200,000 ($226,000 at the August 2016 exchange rate) deposit on the car before retrieving it.
