The Bugatti Chiron is the Italian automaker’s long-anticipated replacement to the Veyron, and at first glance it’s been worth waiting for. A 1,500 horsepower track and road monster, it keeps the Bugatti flag of overwhelming power flying.
A top-speed of over 260 mph and a sub-2.5 second 0-62 mph run comes courtesy of a huge W16 engine. That uses two-stage turbocharging, among other things, and is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
Under the carbon fiber body is a carbon fiber monocoque and all-wheel drive. The Chiron began shipping in Fall 2016, with pricing starting at the equivalent of $2.6m.
