The successor to the world’s fastest car has actually been revealed before the Geneva motor show.
The Bugatti Chiron can reach 100km/h in a mind-blowing 2.5 seconds and has a leading speed of in excess of 420km/h– both which make it quicker than a Formula one car.
The Chiron is the replacement to the acclaimed Bugatti Veyron, which set the record for the world’s fastest automobile two times: when in 2005 (408.47 km/h) and once again in 2010 (431.072 km/h) with an upgraded design.
The Bugatti Chiron is anticipated to eclipse the 431km/h record with a much more effective design next year– however, in the meantime, it is the fastest production automobile on sale throughout the world.
It is so fast, Michelin needed to develop unique tires that would not blow up at such high speeds.
The figures behind the Bugatti Chiron have rev heads in a spin.
The W16 engine (2 V8s installed back-to-back) is enhanced by 4 turbochargers.
It is without a doubt the most effective engine ever fitted to a production vehicle, with a mind boggling 1103kW of power (nearly 1500 horse power in the old cash) and a shocking 1600Nm of torque.
The initial Bugatti Veyron was priced from EUR1 million plus taxes (about $AUD1.5 million) however the brand-new design will cost EUR2.5 million plus taxes (about $AUD3.8 million). Only 500 will be made.
