Watch: Bugatti Chiron Hits 400 KM/h (almost 250 MP/h) In 32.6 Seconds Without Breaking A Sweat
Remember what Bugatti head honcho Wolfgang Durheimer said a few years ago about its clientele? In a nutshell, the average Bugatti owner owns 84 cars, three jets, as well as one yacht. This sort of opulence is backed up by the go-faster proficiency of the Volkswagen Group’s fastest machine, the $3 million Chiron.
Limited to 500 units, the Chiron is the star of a series of new videos uploaded by Bugatti on Facebook. The first clip shows the quad-turbo W16-engined land missile thrust from zero clicks to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.4 seconds. The second one shows acceleration from zero to 400 km/h (249 mph) in a genuinely staggering 32.6 seconds.
Even though the Chiron is all about the numbers, the way the hypercar hits 400 kilometers per hour so easily is arguably even more impressive than its 1,500-pony engine and the 420 km/h (261 mph) maximum velocity. By the way, if the current tire technology would permit it, the unrestricted top speed of the Chiron would be something like 463 km/h, translating to 288 mph.
More than half of the production has been spoken for, and as you are also aware, nobody actually cares the Chiron is EPA-rated 11 mpg (21 l/100 km) on the combined cycle. Not only is it better than the Veyron it replaces, but the Chiron also happens to be a little heavier than its venerable forebear.
Better still, owners can exploit this world-class performance in utter luxury and with room to spare. Being a creation of the Volkswagen Group, the Chiron is engineered with a front trunk that can easily swallow up a carry-on bag. In the cabin, the driver is treated to just enough space for a bottle of sparkling water, a place for the sunglasses, and a place for the phone.
The second torquiest production car in the world in 2017 after the Koenigsegg Regera, the Chiron will usher in a successor no sooner than 2024. According to Wolfgang Durheimer, the heir-apparent will make the switch to hybrid to deliver on the French automaker’s promise for unparalleled performance.
