The next great creation from Bugatti will make its official debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
Serving as the successor to the Bugatti Veyron, the new Bugatti Chiron has already been unveiled as the first production car with 1,500 horsepower. Powered by an 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W16 engine just like the Veyron, the powerplant has been enhanced with over 300 hp more than its predecessor, along with 1,180 pound-feet of torque to boot.
The French automaker has said the Bugatti Chiron goes zero-to-60 mph in under 2.5 seconds and hits 186 mph in just 13.6 seconds. Top speed will be limited to 260 mph for “road travel,” which means Bugatti is already thinking of even faster variants. Not surprisingly, Bugatti will be chasing a new world speed record with the car.
