Long Live The King - The New Bugatti Chiron
|   Monday, March 21, 2016
Years ago, it seemed impossible that the performance of the Veyron model could be overcome. Today, Bugatti offers us a radical new sample of sportiness: the Chiron comes with the new 1500 HP, 1600 Nm of torque, and a top speed "limited to highway" of 420 km / h.

Bugatti Chiron is the most pretentious brand of the Volkswagen Group and can be considered the rightful successor to the Veyron. However, there are major differences between the two models.


Bugatti Chiron is the result of thousands of hours of work, motivated by the ambition to be the best, the fastest, overcome the conventional boundaries, and not to play by the standardized rules of today's automotive industry.

The Bugatti Chiron retains the architecture of the W16 engine developed by Bugatti on the Veyron version but comes with serious changes to its construction: from the cylinder, to the piston, from the exhaust system made of titanium, to the turbo system that is completely rethought and equipped with turbines 30 percent more efficient than those of the most powerful Veyron's version.

The engine with a displacement of 8.0 liters is turbocharged and produces 1,500 horsepower, so 499 hp more than the Veyron developed at the time of its launch. Maximum torque is also huge, 1600 Nm available between 2000 rpm and 6000 rpm, and is transmitted to all four wheels through an automatic transmission with seven reports. Obviously, the all-wheel drive system remains one of the pillars of stability for the Bugatti.

To maintain the optimum temperature of the engine the air cooling system for the turbo packet uses 60,000 liters of air per minute, while the water cooling pump of the engine sets in motion 800 liters of water. On the Chiron there are 10 water cooling radiators, implicitly one for engine oil, transmission oil, and one for the rear differential.

However, mathematically, the Chiron may go to over 460 kilometers per hour, making it the fastest series-produced car in automotive history. Right now, the absolute record is held by the Veyron Super Sport version with 1,200 hp that managed to enter the Guinness Book of Records after attaining a maximum speed of 430.9 km/h.

A premiere for the French manufacturer is the adaptive chassis that allows the driver to select different driving modes for the engine, transmission or suspension. As expected, the tires have not been forgotten either. On the contrary, Michelin had a lot of work to provide suitable tires for Bugatti Chiron, because the stress that they are subjected to at 400 km / h reaches 3,800 g, meaning it is 3,800 times greater than the gravitational force.

Adaptive chassis has five different running modes: Lift, EB, "Auto", Autobahn, Handling and Top Speed. Depending on the mode selected, the machine does what it can to best suit the driver's requirements. In Auto mode, the Autobahn and Handling maximum speed is limited to 380 km / h. To reach the speed of 420 km / h which is promises by the Bugatti Chiron, the driver must activate the mode "Top Speed", but a second ignition key must be used for added safety and to avoid accidental selections of this mode.

Bugatti Chiron accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.5 seconds, from 0 to 200 km / h in 6.5 seconds and from 0 to 300 km / h in 13.6 seconds to reach a speed maximum of 420 km / h. The good news for the French is that the Bugatti Chiron already has over 150 pre-orders, and total production will be limited to 500 units. The price is 2.4 million euros.
