The successor to the popular Bugatti Veyron is here. Meet the Bugatti Chiron, its meaner looking descendent. It boasts an extra 300-horsepower for a total of 1500. Surprisingly, the supercar only beats the top speed world record by 3 mph. Bugatti claims the Chiron is capable of hitting 261 mph (420 km/h). We have found out that the car is actually electronically limited to that top speed, meaning the car can’t physically go any faster than 261 mph; not that any one will be able to reach the Chiron’s top speed without access to VW’s own test track.
The record-breaking Bugatti Chiron is 68 pounds lighter than the Veryon and shares the same engine style as well. The heavily improved upon 8-liter W16 (16 cylinders) is equipped with 4 turbos. The Chiron beats the praised Koenigsegg Regera, pulling of 0-62 mph in less than 2.5 seconds. The car contains liquid coolant, 16 gallons to be exact, which is circulated throughout the car to maintain the temperatures of the turbos and radiators. Coming in at around $2.65 million a piece, Bugatti will only be building 500 of these incredible hypercars.
