Bugatti Chiron, The Veyron Supercar Successor, Will Accelerate From 0 To 100 km/h In 2 Seconds
|   Tuesday, May 12, 2015
The British journalists from Car magazine found out some of the secrets of the next Bugatti supercar. Besides already knowing what the name will be - Chiron (pronounced Shir-on - the British press says that the new supercar will have enviable performance, with the sprint from 0 to 100 km / h carried out in 2 seconds.

The Veyron supercar successor will keep the W16 engine, displacing 8.0 liters, although at one point, the Bugatti engineers have considered using an engine with 14 cylinders.
The power delivered will reach 1,500 hp (1,103 kW) and torque is assumed to be around 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft). Although the figures are similar to those of the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, the future Chiron model will use an electric turbine engine, direct injection and a cylinder deactivation system for the reduction of CO2 emissions and fuel consumption at low and medium speeds.

In terms of performance, the Bugatti Chiron will be able to make the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in just two seconds, while the top speed could exceed 460 km/h (288 mph) which would mean a new absolute record in the automotive industry. The Bugatti supercar hopes that the new consumption figures do not exceed 20 liters/100 km (14 UK mpg or 11 US mpg), this considering the Veyron Super Sport guzzles 23.1 liters/100 km (12.2 UK mpg or 10.1 US mpg) in a combined cycle.

Although the new supercar is expected to be released later this year, it seems more likely that we should expect the launch of the Chiron sometime in 2016.
There are chances that the future car will be made in the Veyron style, seeing that the car will almost certainly not be built from scratch.

Now, regarding the name, it seems possible that the Chiron moniker was chosen because of a Bugatti racing driver named Louis Chiron who was influential in creating the brand's legend in the last century's beginning phases. Chiron is also the name of a famous centaur in Greek mythology, and it also rhymes with Veyron, so maybe that's the reason this name was chosen.

Anyway, this hypercar model is one that is special compared to other models in its class. It carries on the Bugatti tradition left over by the popular Veyron, and continues to crush all other rankings cars like LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918.

Over time, the Veyron had an impressive career, starting in 2005, which meant several versions and some 30 different special editions, but it also had some setbacks. An off-set driving position and a relatively heavy curb weight translated into some negative aspects in the press.

Now, this model will not be launched in an unlimited number of units. Allegedly, the 2016 Bugatti Chiron will be made in 300 coupe versions and 150 targa top models. Because it is still in development, these will be presented next year.

As far as the price goes, let's say that the average human being doesn't have enough organs to sell on the black market to afford owning it. According to some sources, the price tag will be even higher than that of a Veyron, but for those that can afford it, it will definitively be worth the cost increase.
