The Bugatti Chiron hypercar has been teased via a Christmas greeting card which shows the car’s prominent design lines under a blue wrap. Through its season’s greetings, Bugatti reminds its fans that the eagerly anticipated Veyron successor will be unwrapped at the Geneva Motor Show 2016.
The greeting car also features the Chiron logo at the bottom. One can easily make out the car’s distinct elliptical element that starts as the roofline and ends up as the door shroud. A low-slung front and rear fascias would feature sophisticated aerodynamics elements. The overall design, as revealed by the camouflaged spyshots, would be derived from the Bugatti Vision GT concept which graced the Frankfurt Motor Show.
The Bugatti Chiron would be retaining its predecessor’s mighty 8.0-litre W16 quad-turbo petrol engine which is likely to receive hybrid assistance to pump out around 1,500 PS and 1,500 Nm of torque. The car is touted to do the 0-100 kmph spring in a blindingly quick 2.3 seconds before hitting a record setting top speed in the range of 430-450 kmph.
