There would not be much of a point to the new Bugatti Chiron if it wasn’t quicker than the Veyron. It is further reported that the Franco-German marque will quickly discover out just how fast the Veyron’s successor will be when it tries to break its 268-mph land speed record.

Since the Veyron’s debut, the numerous places in the world where vehicles can run faster than, let’s say, 250 miles per hour hasn’t increased; Bugatti will be utilizing the 13-mile Ehra-Lessien test center where a Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, sans speed limiter, set the design’s present record, which stands at 267.9 miles per hour. French Formula 1 motorist Pierre-Henri Raphanel set the Super Sport’s record during late July 2010.

The brand-new Chiron definitely has additional power on its side with 1,500 hp and 1,180 lb-ft of torque on tap from its upgraded 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine, compared to the Veyron Super Sport’s 1,183 hp and 1,106 lb-ft output from previous version. Talking about official top speed, the Chiron is simply 4 mph much faster on paper than the Veyron; 261 miles per hour compared to the Veyron Super Sport’s 257 miles per hour, but running flat-out with the speed limiter eliminated will produce a different figure.

Let’s look forward to Bugatti’s attempt to break the old record with officials from the Guinness World Records.
