Bugatti is gearing up for the launch of its next big hypercar that is going to replace the iconic Veyron. It will be known by the name Chiron EB 16.4. This new supercar will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show 2016 early March.
See its specifications, they will blow your mind.
There are various theories about this new hypercar about its technical specifications. But now, Magazine ProDriver CZ has revealed further details about the new Bugatti Hypercar.
Chiron has a carbon-fiber platform, but will only have some 8% of carryover components. The main carryover piece will be the W-16, quad-turbocharged engine, though it will be heavily updated.
Power output of 1,500hp and 1,500Nm of torque. The on-board computer will be calibrated to a top speed of 500kph, however, the top speed will be around the 467kph. The acceleration time of 0-100kph will be around the 2.2-second mark, making it one of the quickest cars around.
Bugatti Chiron is planning to remedy those issues that were in the iconic Veyron. It has some shortcomings i.e. an off-set driving position and a relatively hefty curb weight. The new car will be lighter, more nimble and more powerful.
Bugatti has planned to complete the Chiron's 500 units in 5 years with a yearly production rate of 100 units. So far, Bugatti had received more than 130 orders for their new flagship car and going at this rate, their booking will be filling up very soon.
