When the Bugatti Veyron was first unleashed a decade ago, in 2005, the hypercar took the world by storm. Crowned by the Guinness World Records as the fastest street-legal production car in the world with a top speed of 430.9 km/h, the Veyron was considered to be the undisputed champion in the ring, until now. Bugatti has just spilled a few more details on the predecessor of the Veyron. Christened the Chiron, in honor of the famous Bugatti racer, Louis Chiron, this upcoming hypercar will pack a quad-turbo 8.0 liter W16 engine that churns out a whopping 1,480 bhp and 1106 lb.-ft. of torque!
What does this mean when it comes to speed? The Bugatti Chiron will touch the speeds of above 460 km/h! The car will zip past the 100 km/h mark in below 2.3 seconds, making it a lot quicker than the good old Veyron! Also, Bugatti will build 500 Chirons, producing 50 cars more than the Veyron. What will it take to bring home the swanky new Bugatti in the near future? A bank account packed with approximately $2.471 million, given the fact that the car is expected to come with a price tag of 2.2 million euros.
