Bugatti Veyron used to be the fastest car and it is a thing of the past obviously because the new Chiron is now out at the Geneva show. The car is a power packed vehicle and only limited quantities of the model will be produced by the manufacturer.
Sources confirmed that only 500 cars will be built for buyers around the globe and at least one third of the quantity is already sold out. Bugatti sent out invites to their long time, loyal customers who don’t mind shelling out the $2.5 million price tag to purchase it immediately. For others, a couple of cars are still left if you could manage to spend the hefty price tag.
Veyron Super Sport is not just the fastest car in the world by automobile standards but has won the Guinness world record as well. It has a top speed of 268 miles per hour. The new Bugatti Chiron powered by an 8.0-liter quad turbocharged 16-cylinder engine is relatively much powerful because it delivers 1,500 horsepower which is at least 300hp higher than what the Veyron offered.
For safety purposes, the maximum speed of the car is limited to 258 miles per hour. The brand may choose to hit the car on the race track to try and beat the record set by their own car in the past. The Chiron can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 2.5 seconds. It can touch a high speed of 186 mph within 13.6 seconds, truly a super car!
The previous record for fastest acceleration is held by Hennessey Venom with 13.63 seconds which the Chiron will beat real soon. The car is equipped with an adaptive suspension system, active aerodynamics and braking model.
Other features in the car includes low headlight, 1.6-meter long LED light strip for maximum visibility in the dark, sculpted bonnet and a high end sound system on the inside. The car has built in wifi system, 31 different colored options for the leather trim to choose from. Apparently, 170 cars are already sold. A particularly wealthy businessman has placed an order for six Chirons at once.
The Bugatti Chiron is being displayed at the Geneva motor show at the moment. People who are lucky enough to be there can witness it in person while others can enjoy viewing various images of the car. It boasts of luxury at every corner and at $2.5 million, it should.
