The Bugatti Chiron has been a long time coming, it’s been over a year since the new model was announced at the 2016 Geneva Motor show.
Now with the new model finally being delivered to customers, the video reviews have started to emerge. The first over the finish line is the excellent Carfection channel with their take on the car.
Immense Noise And Speed
Firstly the noise from the 8-litre W16 engine, a sound of magnificence if ever you heard one. As for what exactly 1,500bhp looks like as it’s delivered to the road, it needs to be seen to be believed.
Frankly I wouldn’t expect anything less from an engine with four turbochargers placed in a car that costs 2.4 million Euros, also revealed is that Bugatti confirm that they don’t know how fast it goes, all they will say is that it will go “North of 260mph” which seems a very respectable top speed.
Chiron Facts Revealed
Carfection, in the interest of teaching us Chiron facts we didn’t already know, including revelations such as; that flowing line in the middle of the car, it’s not just for aerodynamics or cosmetics, it’s meant to evoke company founder Ettore Bugatti’s signature. The stunning rear brake light cluster, it’s actually a single machined piece, featuring no less than 82 individual LED’s contained within the single strip.
So, there you have it, a 1,500bhp car that has again moved the engineering benchmark for what is possible with all that material that mankind digs up out of the ground.
