World’s Fastest Car, Bugatti Chiron for Rs 18 crore hypercar!
Bugatti Chiron, the befitting replacement for Veyron made an appearance at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Claimed to be the world’s fastest production super sports car, Chiron is an extremely powerful and luxurious car from the stables of French auto maker, Bugatti.
Bugatti Chiron, t The 0-100Km/h sprint is said to be achievable in 2.5 seconds on the Chiron, with 200 km/hr coming up in 6.5 seconds and 300Km/h will take less than 13.6 seconds. The top-speed is 420Km/h.
With overwhelming amounts of torque on offer, Bugatti has also equipped the Chiron with the largest performance clutch ever to be fitted on a production car. Furthermore, the fastest Bugatti gets a titanium exhaust as well as six massive catalytic converters. Keeping all that power at bay are the carbon silicon carbide brakes with 8 pistons. However, the Bugatti Chiron isn’t just a straight line king. The model gets a new carbon fibre monocoque chassis which makes the car considerably lighter, while the rigidity is said to be comparable to a LMP1-spec endurance racer. An adaptive suspension setup and specially developed tyres ensure higher levels of agility.
Talking about the design, the Bugatti Chiron is more curvaceous and gets an evolutionary design language. The front fascia gets the trademark Bugatti grille, contoured hood and new low LED headlights; whereas the rear features the very unique 1.6 metre long LED strip light. More noticeable are the dimensions on the Chiron that has grown wider and taller than its predecessor. The cabin too witnesses an increase in space making for a slightly roomier cockpit. That said, the minimalist interior looks stellar, especially with the trimmed centre console and the instrument cluster is a mix of digital and analog dials with the speedometer running up to 500Km/h.
You also get Wi-Fi connectivity along with 31 leather upholstery options on the Bugatti Chiron. A gentle reminder on the luxurious attributes of this two-door wonder. The cabin also features an interesting innovation and is capable of shooting an airbag through carbon fibre. Coming to the sales, Bugatti is expected to commence deliveries of the Chiron later this year with the production limited to 500 units. Apparently, one third of the production is already sold out, despite a staggering price tag of $2.61 million (approx. 18 crore). The Chiron is undoubtedly all set to become the new poster favourite for the next decade.
The heart of the Chiron is an evolution of the Veyron Super Sport engine, reworked and strengthened to deliver a 25 percent increase in power and a 5 percent increase in torque. The numbers? Try 1,500 hp at 6,700 rpm, and a weapons-grade 1,165 lb-ft of torque from 2,000 to 6,700 rpm. The reason for the power and torque increases is auto engineering 101: There is simply more air going through all 16 cylinders.
