Next Bugatti To Be Named Chiron - World Premiere At Geneva 2016
|   Thursday, December 24, 2015
We only know the name but already ordered over 100 units have been ordered.
The next Bugatti supercar will bear the name Chiron after the legendary racing driver Louis Chiron, who won virtually every major racing brand in the 1920s and 1930. The world premiere will take place at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2016.

The Franco-Italian manufacturer has revealed what everyone already knew, namely that the Veyron successor will be the Bugatti Chiron.
The model name comes from Louis Chiron, the most famous racing driver who competed for the brand Bugatti in the '20s and' 30s, long before the brand was Volkswagen property.

With Chiron, Bugatti will continue to produce the most powerful, fast, luxurious and most exclusive supercar series in the world. The Bugatti Chiron is now presented to selected customers and the feedback is incredible: over 100 orders have already been received, according to a press release.

"The development brief for the Chiron can be summarized in one sentence and is probably the shortest in the history of the automobile: we want to make the best significantly better. The Chiron will set new standards in every respect. We will continue to produce the world's most powerful, fastest, most luxurious and most exclusive production super sports car. This is the claim of Bugatti and our customers." said Wolfgang Dürheimer, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S.

Now, the Bugatti Chiron is subjected to its latest test. A number of prototypes are on the roads of several continents, for fine adjustments to the smallest details on a variety of roads and weather conditions. No other supercar series of this caliber has ever been subjected to such stringent and complex tests.
The technical specifications were not disclosed but according to rumors the replacement for the Bugatti Veyron will still have an 8.0 liter W16 quad-turbo propeller that develops 1,500 hp and 1,500 Nm of torque. Power will be sent to the wheels via 7-speed DSG, allowing the supercar to reach 100 km / h in just 2.3 seconds. Top speed is estimated at 470 - 480 km / h.
"In Louis Chiron, we found a worthy patron for a new model in the history of our brand. The name of the best racing driver and the most successful Bugatti driver of his time for the best super sports car of the present day – that is the ideal combination" Dürheimer stated.

Rumors are that the price will be 2-2.5 million euros but this did not prevent Bugatti from already getting 100 orders for the new Chiron. The orders came from customers who have had the opportunity to see the exclusive new Chiron. While Veyron production was limited to 450 units, the Bugatti Chiron is expected to reach 500 customers.

Lydie Barre-Chiron, descendant and Louis Chiron biographer, recently visited Bugatti's headquarters in Molsheim to see the vehicle. "The Chiron is a modern super sports car that is instantly recognizable as a Bugatti," said Lydie Barre-Chiron. "It looks fantastic, just magnificent. The design already indicates that this car will be very powerful and very fast. If Louis Chiron were alive today, I'm sure he would be proud that such an extraordinary sports car is to bear his name and is to represent the brand with which he achieved his greatest successes."
