On Monday, Bugatti confirmed that the new supercar will be the Chiron, and will debut on next year at the Geneva Motor Show. However, Bugatti did not announce any specifications of the new Chiron.
In addition, the French automaker officially said the name of the Veyron successor is no more tentative as this entire time. Chiron was to be its official name and will take a full credit on next year at Geneva Motor Show, according to egmCarTech.
Bugatti gave this name "Chiron" in behalf of Louis Chiron. He was the best racing driver during the 1920s and 1930s and is the only driver with the closest links to Bugatti's storied Motorsports history.
We expect that will base on the 8.0-liter W16 engine. This time anticipated that would utilize electric turbochargers for a mild hybrid setup, next to zero turbo slack, and a yield expected to approach 1,500 HP. Consolidated with lower weight, all that muscle is tipped to rocket the Chiron to 62 in under 2.5 seconds and on to a top pace of around 288 miles for each hour.
Also, we expect that the design and structure will look like that of the organization's Vision Gran Turismo concept but in a more exquisite and less racy form. The semi-circular curve encompassing the main rear vent and the trailing edge of the greenhouse are dominated by lines. The front end will be more angular with more sharper headlights, yet at the same time ruled by the mark horseshoe-shaped front grille, according to Autoblog.
At the same time, pre-marketing of the Chiron is now under processing. Bugatti has now invited some of selected customers in the brand's key markets. "The feedback from our customers concerning the Chiron is outstanding," says the Bugatti President.
Bugatti already connected his name to the 18/3 Chiron concept that saw the Veyron with a significantly bigger 18-cylinder engine at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1999. It just strikes us as fitting, then, now that the company restores for the Veyron's successor.
Right now, the Chiron's final testing is going on. No other production of the sports car of this gauge will be subjected to such a stringent, complete test program. It will cost around 2 million euro, according to Independent.ie.
"The development brief for the Chiron can be summarized in one sentence and is probably the shortest in the history of the automobile: we want to make the best significantly better," says Wolfgang Dürheimer, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S.
