Spied: Bugatti Chiron on video with Veyron and Lamborghini Huracan
Spied testing in Germany, a video draws attention to successor of the Bugatti Veyron, to be called the Chiron. Though disguised, the video does hint at what could be the rear design of the new Bugatti Chiron.
The video shows two prototypes travelling in a convoy along with a Veyron Super Sport, a BMW i8 and a Lamborghini Huracan. The news is already out about the Veyron successor to feature a hybrid powertrain. This justifies as to why it is being tested alongside i8 and Huracan.
With no official word out, reports already claim that Chiron can accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in 2.0 seconds and a top speed of 500 kmph, 37 kmph faster than the Veyron Super Sport with 1200 hp engine.
As on date the Bugatti Veyron is the world’s fastest street legal car with the ability to accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in 2.5 seconds. It retails for £1.4 million (INR 14,03,37,757) and only 450 units of this model have been made. This ‘car of the decade’ is soon to be eclipsed by a faster and more powerful success as disclosed in the video.
From the video above, Bugatti Chiron can be noticed to sport rear wings and large air intakes. Its tail lamps feature squarish LEDs, giving it a very unique look. Power is expected to be derived from the same W16 8.0L engine, but along with it will be two electric motors. These will work together to deliver 1500 hp and 1500 Nm torque via a 7 speed dual clutch gearbox.
