The 2017 Bugatti Chiron became the talk of town when it debuted during the recently concluded Geneva International Motor Show. The Chiron – a replacement for the Veyron is the fastest, most powerful, most exclusive and luxurious production sports car ever seen in the world. It is the latest generation of a string of high-performance sports car lineup for the new model year. It is basically a Veyron at its roots, albeit features perfection to its speed, technologies, and design. Its release date has been set for early 2017, at least going by the latest rumors.
Having won many records with the Bugatti Veyron, Bugatti saw an opportunity to further up the ante by pushing the boundaries of its benchmarks even further. At the heart of the Chiron is an 8.0L, W-16 engine behemoth that cranks out a whopping 1,479 horsepower and 1,180 lbs. ft. of torque, which represents a 296 hp and 74 lbs. ft. of torque improvement over the Bugatti Veyron SuperSport model. This power makes the Chiron zoom from 0-62 mph in just 2.5 seconds, and goes on to reach an electronically-limited top speed of 186 mph.
Other than the crazy power output figures, the new model also comes with a variety of innovations, which position it strategically to become the next world speed record holder. According to the president of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S – Wolfgang Durheimer, “Pushing boundaries to enter new realms is part and parcel of human nature. The new 2017 Bugatti Chiron is the ultimate expression of how far these boundaries can be pushed without making concessions on any of its facet.”
Looking at the new model makes it apparent that Bugatti has not only established new dimensions that will undoubtedly define operations of all market players, but has also put in place new paradigms that were previously non-existing. Indeed, the new sports car is the first track car to bring a whopping 1,479 horsepower and 1,180 pounds-feet of torque onto the road with unprecedented comfort, extremely high safety levels, and tremendous effectiveness.
In addition to the unique 8.0L W-16 engine and a combination of four new, large turbochargers that make such power generated, Bugatti also comes with an impressive number of other technical innovations and refinements. To wit, some of the innovative technologies include specifically-designed tires, a newly-designed adaptive chassis, and a new carbon fiber monocoque. One statement that perfectly befits the 2017 Bugatti Chiron design is it’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing. It is the perfect illustration of just how “beast” and “beauty” can combine seamlessly.
It stays true to Bugatti’s DNA of distinction and modern manifestation. This is what Wolfgang Durheimer had to say, “The 2017 Bugatti Chiron is without a doubt incredibly fast, ultra-modern, offers the highest levels of comfort, agile, powerful, and achieves all these with a stylistically demanding design. These combination of features are paralleled by no other market player, thereby making the Chiron the quintessential ultimate sports car.”
