The successor to Veyron, Bugatti’s Chiron the fastest road car is been unveiled at Geneva motor show on 29 feb 2016 by the French automobile manufacturer Bugatti.
Though the company has no current plans of launching the fastest car in India but Bugatti lovers would like to know more about the car. The company representative told only 500 cars will be manufactured and they have already booked one third of the cars. The price is priced at whooping 2.61 million us dollars 17.75 crore Indian rupees approximately.
Lets talk about the speed
The Chiron is powered by a 8 liter W16 engine which produces 1500 horsepower and 1180 lb of torque which produces the top speed of 261 miles/ per hour or 425 km/per hour which is not its top speed because the company has limited the top speed to 261 miles per hour. The car is speculated to reach speeds of 300 miles per hour. It accelerate from 0-60 miles in less the 2.5 seconds and 0-186 miles speed in under 13.6 seconds.
The car uses a new carbon fiber monocoque on the body to reduce its rigidity. The Chiron comes with four different driving modes that are not the usual Sport or comfort setting which comes on usual cars but when you are talking about the fastest road car you will get Auto, Autoban,Handling and Top Speed modes to choose from.
Auto is its default setting it selects the best parameters of the brain of Chiron. Each mode changes the chassis height, shock absorbers, power assisted steering, four-wheel drive mode, rear differential, aerodynamic control system, stability control system and brake control system. In the rear is a unique spoiler that can be set to four different positions.
Bugatti has done extremely well to match the exterior to its interiors. The dashboard includes an analogue speedometer offset by HMI gauges on the side. Light accents say the word “Chiron” throughout, plus there’s a matching set of Bugatti Chiron leather luggage. The Illuminated C-bar in the interior is the longest light conductor in the automobile industry.
