How to you follow the Bugatti Veyron? With the Bugatti Chiron of course

According to Bugatti, the Chiron is ‘the world’s most powerful, fastest, most luxurious and most exclusive production super sports car’… but we’re sure they won’t mind if we call it a hypercar!

It’s not exactly a ‘clean sheet’ replacement for the Veyron, as it carries over its basic architecture and a W16 engine. The wheelbase is the same, but the styling is new and the Chiron is a few cms longer and wider than its predecessor. The engine has been completely reworked, however, and produces a staggering 1,500bhp and 1,600Nm of torque, which Bugatti says is a 25 per cent increase in performance.

Bugatti Chiron review

Four turbochargers are configured to ensure peak torque is delivered from 2,000rpm all the way to 6,000rpm – and the car reportedly has a top speed of around 288mph, although it’s limited to 261mph on customer cars. But with a price tag of almost £2 million, and that’s without going nuts on the options list, would you accept anything less than blistering performance?
