PostHeaderIcon Carfection Reviews The Bugatti Chiron, Makes Everyone Jealous: Video

Glamour, prestige, and incredible levels of excess in every single way – these are the things that make the Bugatti Chiron what it is. A rundown on the specs is staggering. Making it go is a quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W-16 engine producing 1,479 horsepower and 1,180 pound-feet of torque through all four wheels. The engine is so voracious, it’ll suck up 60,000 liters of air per minute. A run to 62 mph slots into the low 2-second range, while the ungoverned top speed is somewhere in the vicinity of 288 mph. To call this thing a monster would be a gross understatement – this is the superlative automobile, the last word in power, presence, and velocity. And Carfection got a chance to drive it in this 7-minute review. Lucky bastards.

I could spend pages and pages writing about this car’s incredible specs, and indeed, the above-featured video does devote a good amount of time to talking about the numbers. However, it’s the lovely string of detail shots, the rolling shots on the road, and the jaw-dropping sound the Chiron makes when 1,500 horses are released that really make this video special.

Looking to get lost for a few minutes in a $2.6 million fantasy? Go ahead and hit play. Don’t forget your headphones.

PostHeaderIcon The Bugatti Chiron Proves that the Wealthy Live a Different Way of Life than the Rest of Us

So, when you decide to purchase a new piece of technology or a new car, you probably make it a point to test it for yourself before actually committing to your purchase and signing on the dotted line, right? Well, for most of us, that’s the smart thing to do. Hell, I couldn’t buy a $3,000 winter beater without giving it a long drive to make sure it’s worthy of my ownership. Plus, it helps to tell you whether or not the car is worth the hype. But, when it comes to those with deep pockets and a love for supercars, apparently things go a little differently as shown by the fact that someone just ordered the 250th Bugatti Chiron. This means that half of the models planned for production have officially been spoken for.

That’s good news for Bugatti and the Chiron, but what does it tell us about those with excessive amounts of money to spend? Well, they certainly don’t have commitment or trust issues. After all, all 250 of those who have bit the bullet and signed up for Bugatti’s next four-wheeled rocket, never test drove the car. And for the record, Bugatti is proud of this, as expressed by Wolfgang Durheimer, the President of Bugatti, when he said, “The fact that we have already taken orders for half of the Chiron series even without test drives so far bears witness to the great confidence of our customers in our brand and its strong aura.”

But, that story will change soon as, by the end of March, the Bugatti is planning a central test-drive event where those already on the list and other prospective customers will have the chance to get behind the wheel. But still, we’re talking about a $2.4 million car. The price in itself should be enough to prove that the car will be top notch – we all know that you get what you pay for – I just don’t think I could commit to such a large purchase without knowing how comfortable the car is, or how it drives, among other things. But, to each their own, I guess.

PostHeaderIcon Bugatti Announces First Deliveries Of Chiron To Remind Us We're All Still Peasants

You there, common man! Cease your work at the engine lathe for one moment and direct your attention to northeastern France, as the esteemed artisans at Bugatti bid farewell to the first examples of the dream-come-true Chiron hypercar. One by one, as the initial three roll away from Bugatti’s atelier in Molsheim, each a pinnacle of luxury, rapidity, and engineering, they are giving a fond “adieu” before being whisked away to the loving arms of customers in Europe and the Middle East.

This trio of incomparable motor vehicles is but the first of 70 such Chirons slated for production this year. While the exquisite tastes of the individual customer shine through in personalized touches to the bodywork and cabin space, each Chiron comes outfitted with an 8.0-liter quad-turbo W-16 engine capable of producing 1,479 horsepower. With ample application of the throttle, owners will enjoy breathtaking acceleration and speed, with a pace of 60 mph achieved in a mere 2-and-a-half-seconds, and a maximum velocity of 260 mph. How exhilarating!

While the rabble is rightfully restricted to second-hand enjoyment of the Chiron, they will be permitted to gaze upon it with wonder at this year’s Geneva International Motor Show.

And with that, your break is now complete. Return to your work post haste!


PostHeaderIcon Cristiano Ronaldo Drives the Bugatti Chiron, Takes it Home

Much like its predecessor, the Veyron, the Bugatti Chiron is the kind of supercar that doesn’t need anyone’s approval. The fact that it’s super powerful, super fast, and very, very expensive turns it into an instant hit with car collectors. Yet Bugatti felt the need to get the seal of approval from Portuguese soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo.

Okay, I’m not exactly serious. Bugatti obviously doesn’t need Ronaldo’s approval for the Chiron, but it can certainly benefit from the massive attention he gets on and outside the pitch. After all, he’s been named World Player of the Year several times, he’s the reigning European Champion with Portugal, and winner of many titles with Real Madrid. He’s one of the greatest superstars alive, and he’s also a big sports car fan. All solid reasons for Bugatti to want him in its latest hypercar.

The so-called test video is pretty much of the commercial variety, lasting a little over a minute and being packed with special effects. In the end, Bugatti test driver Andy Wallace asks Ronaldo to give the key to the car back, adding that he has to call Bugatti if he wants to keep it. You’ll have to find out the outcome for yourselves, but it’s safe to assume that Ronaldo already paid for his Chiron and maybe even taken delivery of the car.

Not bad for an ad for a super expensive vehicle rated at 1,479 horsepower and all the luxury you can get, but I’m not sure Ronaldo is the best man to approve it. He may own several supercars, but he also crashed at leas a couple of them. He’s not the best driver out there.


PostHeaderIcon Is Bugatti Struggling To Sell The Chiron?

On the surface, the question is preposterous, maybe even a little blasphemous. Bugatti struggling to sell its new Chiron supercar sounds like the backbone of a not-so funny joke. Haha, right? Here’s the thing, though. There might be some layer of truth to it, now that no less than Bugatti’s own CEO, Wolfgang Durheimer, admitted that the French supercar brand has received a total of 220 confirmed orders for the Chiron so far. Considering that Bugatti has plans to build 500 units of the Chiron over a span of eight years, 280 unaccounted for units seem a lot for a car that’s succeeding the Veyron, one of the most iconic performance cars of this generation.

There are, of course, a number of ways to interpret Durheimer’s comments. On the one hand, it is possible that Bugatti is taking its time accepting new orders for the Chiron now that production for the car has started. According to GT Spirit, Bugatti has even increased production capacity in order to build 65 models for 2017, a sign that the company is going to be up to its head next year building all these units without any delays. The capacity also means that there’s a three-year wait for new orders, which would explain why the Chiron has yet to sell out despite its overall awesomeness.

On the other hand, even Durheimer himself seems to think that the Chiron isn’t selling as well as Bugatti expected. In the conversation with GT Spirit, the Bugatti boss expressed “hope” that new orders for the Chiron will come in once prospective customers see for themselves the surreal experience of driving one of the fastest and most powerful cars in the world. “I’m confident the customers who have not yet decided to order a Chiron will do so when they have had a chance to drive it,” Durheimer added.

Color me skeptical, but that sounds like a man who’s still trying to sell the merits of the Chiron to would-be customers. The supercar’s $2.6 million price tag certainly doesn’t help its cause. Nor does the $200,000 deposit that Bugatti is asking to secure a reservation for the supercar. These factors could have played significant roles on why Bugatti has yet to find owners for more than half of the Chirons it plans to build.

So while it’s not entirely accurate that Bugatti is “struggling” to sell the Chiron, the fact the model has yet to sell out is pretty surprising.

PostHeaderIcon Bugatti Chiron Could Go Hybrid For More Power

When it comes to Bugatti and its new Chiron hypercar, the word “limitation” has no application to it whatsoever. That’s even more true now that Autocar is reporting that Bugatti is considering adding a hybrid powertrain for the 1,479-horsepower hypercar in an attempt to make it more insane than it already is.

Speaking with the website, Bugatti CEO Wolfgang Durheimer said that the French automaker isn’t ruling out the possibility of adding electric motors to add to the Chiron’s existing 8.0-liter quad-turbo V-16 engine. The caveat to leaving that door slightly ajar is that Bugatti isn’t going to do it unless there’s a need to push the Chiron’s performance capabilities well past its existing 1,479-horsepower output. Such a scenario seems unlikely on the surface, but if there’s anything the company has learned from it’s time with the Veyron, it’s that competition can come in the unlikeliest of places and in the event the Chiron becomes vulnerable to another supercar, there’s a “next level” door that the French automaker can kick to unleash even more power out of its new crown jewel.

Details about a possible hybrid powertrain have yet to be revealed and rightfully so. If Bugatti does have that ace up it’s sleeve, don’t expect it to wave it around for all the world to see. The Chiron is a performance car after all and Bugatti’s main purpose for the car is for it to be the fastest and most powerful production car in the world. If that status is threatened, then that’s likely the time the French automaker begins laying out the groundwork for a hybrid-powered Chiron, one that can push past the limits of the existing version into God-knows-where.

PostHeaderIcon Bugatti Chiron And Vision GT Concept To Be Showcased Side-By-Side At Pebble Beach Concours

The Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance always attracts its share of exotics and exclusive models. It won’t be different in this year’s event as Bugatti has confirmed the attendance of its new Chiron hypercar and the Vision Grand Turismo show car at The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering event.

The part about both cars attending isn’t exactly the big deal here. After all, both the Chiron and the VGT show car have already made their respective world debuts. That said, this will be the first time that the show car will be displayed in the United States and having it sit beside the car that it had a hand in inspiring from a design point of view adds to the appeal of having both of them at Pebble Beach.

In the Instagram post touting the cars’ participation at Pebble Beach, Bugatti also indicated that the two cars that will be at Pebble Beach already has an owner, which the company identified by his Instagram handle, @b14. But according to Auto Evolution, the account and more importantly, the Chiron and the VGT show car are owned by no less than Prince Badr bin Saud, the grandson of the late King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. Bugatti didn’t say how much the prince bought the two cars for, but it did say that he had “submitted the most convincing bid.” In other words, it had a lot of zeroes in it.

PostHeaderIcon Bugatti Exec Shoots Down Possibility Of A Chiron Roadster

The Bugatti Chiron may one day break all the records that its predecessor, the Bugatti Veyron, set on its way to becoming the world’s fastest production car, but there is one thing that the Veyron had that the Chiron is apparently not getting: a roadster or convertible version.

The bombshell was dropped by Bugatti’s sales and marketing boss Dr. Stefan Brungs in a conversation with Autocar at the opening of the automaker’s first and only showroom in the U.K. Brungs didn’t shoot down the possibility that the Chiron will get different variants, but none of these prospective versions will be configured as either a roadster or a convertible. For now, the company’s focus is to sell 500 models of the Chiron before discussing the model’s expansion opportunities. To date, Bugatti already has more than 200 orders for its new supercar with 15 alone coming from the U.K.

Brungs also took the time to confirm that the Chiron is already being prepared to make a run at the Veyron 16.4 Super Sport’s world record top speed of 268 mph. Very little details were given as far as the preparations are concerned, but a previous report indicated that once the Chiron is fully up to speed and Bugatti is confident of what it can offer, the world record attempt will happen sometime in the next few years.

PostHeaderIcon CarThrottle Gets To Ride Shotgun In The Bugatti Chiron: Video

I don’t know if there’s any place in this world that I’d prefer to get invited to than the inside of a Bugatti Chiron. To date, only a handful of people outside those who work for Bugatti have had a chance to enjoy the Chiron on a more personal level. Not that we mind, but the folks over at CarThrottle got the chance to get a ride onboard the Chiron during the 24 Hours of Nurburgring. And, to make the ride-along more special, they were driven around the ‘Ring by no less than Bugatti CEO Wolfgang Durheimer.

There’s a lot to digest in this 13-minute video. The first part of the video takes a close look at the Chiron, highlighting every new aspect of the supercar down to the hilt. As soon as that was done, the real fun started as Durheimer climbs into the cabin of the supercar to run through the start procedure of the Chiron and all the important controls on the steering wheel. Most importantly, he drops an important piece of information, essentially telling CarThrottle that the Chiron’s Guinness World Record-sanctioned record attempt won’t happen until 2018, giving Bugatti enough time to prepare for the attempt. Something tells me that the French automaker is also waiting for the Koenigsegg One:1 to make its record attempt before trying to eclipse the top speed that the One:1 will inevitably set. That’s a smart move for Bugatti.

In any event, Durheimer eventually sets out on the track and proceeds to push the Chiron hard. At one point, he even slows down on the Döttinger Höhe straight before punching the pedal, setting the Chiron loose as it hit 200 mph in a matter of seconds. It may not feel like the car’s going that fast when you watch it, but to hear the gnarly sound of those four turbochargers and all the cuss words that were being beeped out, I’d venture a guess that Durheimer wasn’t holding back one bit.

If ever you get the chance to ride shotgun in a Bugatti Chiron, this video should be your guide on how to brace for the inevitable speed rush.


PostHeaderIcon Bugatti Chiron Captured Getting Transported Into Monaco Dealership: Video

Oh, what it must’ve felt like to be the driver of this transport carrier. As if it wasn’t pressure enough to be carrying a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, the man in charge of this trailer is also carrying an even more important piece of cargo. More important than the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, you ask? To that, I say yes, because as you can see, just below the Veyron is the all-new Bugatti Chiron in all its pristine black glory.

These two videos were taken just outside Bugatti’s dealership in Monaco and as you can see, incredible care and delicacy were being practiced in taking the Chiron out of the trailer and into the dealership. That much is to be expected considering that the car in question here costs $2.61 million. Even the driver who got behind the wheel of the Chiron had to wear gloves before touching the steering wheel, which, by the way, had its own covers too. That’s the amount of caution people need to have while in the presence of the Chiron. Can’t say I can blame them for taking this approach.

Bugatti has announced that only 500 units will be made available, of which over 150 are already accounted for. That leaves fewer than 350 units that are still up for grabs. It might not mean much for folks like us, but I anticipate Bugatti to have its fill of Chiron orders by the time production of the 1,500-horsepower supercar begins in the company’s Molsheim production facility in France. Deliveries are expected to start in October 2016 so it won’t be long before we see all these Chirons running around and owning whatever road they travel on.

In the meantime, we have these two videos of the Chiron being meticulously taken out of its transport trailer and parked inside the automaker’s Monaco dealership to keep us busy. It may not mean much, but for what it’s worth, I can watch these videos over and over again and still not get tired of them.


PostHeaderIcon Bugatti Chiron Grand Sport

After many years of development and several prototypes spotted on and around the Nurburgring in 2015, the new Bugatti Chiron finally broke cover at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Developed to replace the already iconic Veryron, the Chiron borrows many features from its predecessor, but sports design cues of its own, including a redesigned interior and a more powerful drivetrain. With Bugatti’s new hypercar already on its way to the production line, we decided to have a closer look at its roadster sibling, the Chiron Grand Sport.

If you feel a bit confused, you haven’t missed anything. Bugatti hasn’t launched the Chiron Grand Sport behind your back. In fact, the French firm has yet to make a statement about a topless Chiron, but we know such a model is in the books. Given that the Veyron spawned not one, but two roadsters, the Grand Sport and Grand Sport Vitesse, there’s no way Bugatti will build all 500 Chirons in coupe body style only. Also, it’s only natural to assume that Bugatti will continue to use the Grand Sport name with the Chiron in order to take brand’s modern legacy forward.

Having said that, expect the Chiron Grand Sport to arrive in a couple of years as a 2019 or 2020 model year supercar. Likewise, look for Bugatti to attempt to establish a new world record for the fastest production convertible with the Chiron. But until we find out more about that, check out our speculative review and rendering below.

PostHeaderIcon Bugatti Chiron – New Photos and Video

Bugatti Chiron-new-0

After the debut of the all-new Bugatti Chiron at the Geneva Motor Show we got a tone of new renderings trying to imagine the open-top version of the car, but not that many good pictures of the car itself. Well, that issue is about to be rectified.

To be brutally honest, it was a bit hard to excited about the looks of the Bugatti Chiron, what with it looking exactly like the Vision Gran Turismo concept, which we’ve already seen plenty. But still, when Bugatti releases new photos of the car at their super prestigious factory in Château St. Jean, it is not something you would want to miss.

There is also new live photos of the car from the Geneva debut, but they are not reliable in giving you a good idea of what Bugatti Chiron really looks like. All those powerful lamps ought to affect your vision to some extent. Wo we guess the video above will have to do until we finally see one of these bad boys out on the street.

PostHeaderIcon Bugatti Chiron Vs. Bugatti Veyron

After many month of rumors, spy shots, and teasers, Bugatti finally introduced the Chiron at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Developed to replace the Veyron, considered one of the greatest vehicle engineered by man, the Chiron arrived 11 years after Bugatti began producing the world’s fastest production car. With the Veyron already an iconic supercar that has set so many benchmarks, the Chiron had big shoes to fill. It had to be faster and more powerful, yet feature the same luxurious interior and the same degree of exclusivity.

Although it has yet to set a new world record as of March 2016, it’s safe to assume that the Chiron didn’t disappoint. It has a completely new design that brings together modern cues with some of Bugatti’s heritage features and sports a beefed-up version of the 8.0-liter W-16 that made the Veyron the fastest production vehicle in the world. It’s quicker from a standstill and promises to hit a higher top speed despite being about 100 pounds heavier than its forerunner.

Needless to say, it will be interesting to see the two cars being put through their paces on a test track, but until someone manages to unite a Veyron and a Chiron for a proper comparison, we’ll compare Bugatti’s record-breaking supercars using what we already know about them. Which one looks better, has the more luxurious interior, and the more impressive drivetrain? Keep reading to find out.

PostHeaderIcon Bugatti Chiron Rendered on Forgiato Wheels

Bugatti Chiron-Forgiato

In all the years the Bugatti Veyron has been around, there have been maybe two or three examples of it fitted with a set of Forgiato Wheels. That’s a shame, because Forgiato to the wheels industry is what Bugatti is to the car industry and there should be more marriages between the two.

Hopefully that’ll be the case with the new Bugatti Chiron. Not that the companies have announced any particular plans, but people are already thinking about how awesome the result of such cooperation would be. Here we have a rendering of the new Chiron on a set of Forgiato Fondare ECL rims, customized to match the look and paint work of the car. And we have to say it looks pretty darn good.

Now, there are people who believe one must not mess around with wheels and stuff on car Bugatti Chiron, what with it being a superbly technical machine with a ton of power (1,500 horsepower) and a serious turn of speed (260 mph). They say it could ruin the performance. But these are people who only read about the car and look at its pictures. The people who actually buy cars like Chiron do it for the most part for the prestige of the car. They want to show off, and that’s why Forgiato wheels are ideal for the Chiron. It’s all about the visual drama.

PostHeaderIcon 2016 Geneva International Motor Show – Best In Show

You know, if you take a long, hard look at auto journalism, there are a few words that seem to pop up a little too often. One good example is the word “epic,” which, in my opinion, should be reserved for life’s most dramatic, mind-blowing moments. That said, last week was the Geneva International Motor Show, and I feel quite confident in labeling it the most epic show of the year. Granted, we’re only a week or so into March, but honestly, I’m not sure how the rest of 2016 will be able to top what we saw in Geneva.

Of course, with over 100 debuts on the schedule and just about every marque under the sun in attendance, odds were high that Geneva would bring the good stuff. Nevertheless, this year’s event in Switzerland went above and beyond, showcasing the next evolution, as it were, when it comes to bleeding-edge technology and face-melting speed.

So then – to the task at hand. It is with great pleasure that I present to you the top five debuts from the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show.

PostHeaderIcon Another Rendering of Bugatti Chiron Grand Sport

Bugatti Chiron Grand Sport-render-new-1

Now that the new Bugatti Chiron has made its official debut and we know how it looks like, renderings artists the world over are scrambling to imagine what the car might look like when they inevitably chop its roof and make a roadster version. These new renderings of Bugatti Chiron Grand Sport come from RM Design, and they seem to be pretty much spot on.

That said, what the designer has come up with has the same problem as the one we showed you a few days ago. The hardtop Chiron a big strip of chrome garnishing the side profile, extending all the way from the top of the side windows to the bottom of the side sills. It will be interesting to see how they will change this thing in the real Bugatti Chiron Grand Sport, but they almost certainly won’t cut it off willy nilly like in this photos.

Bugatti Chiron Grand Sport-render-new-2

Another reason we’re looking forward to seeing the real Bugatti Chiron Grand Sport is the performance. The hardtop, as I’m sure you know, comes with a 1,500 horsepower W16 quad-turbo engine which gives the car a top speed of 260 mph. The laws of physics will not allow the convertible (with the top down) be just as quick. But rest assured, the open-top Chiron will continue the holding on the fastest convertible crown won fair and square by its Grand Sport predecessor.

PostHeaderIcon Bugatti Chiron Grand Sport Roadster Rendered

Bugatti Chiron Grand Sport-render

Well, it didn’t take long for a speculative rendering of what the drop-top Bugatti Chiron Grand Sport may look like to hit the web after the hyper car’s debut at the Geneva Motor Show. This helps if you were wondering whether you should order the hardtop Chiron or wait for the roadster version.

Mind you, that is only a problem if you have 2.4 million Euros lying around, because that is what a Chiron coupe costs. The convertible Bugatti Chiron Grand Sport will probably cost a little bit more, and it’s going to be a little bit slower, what with it being roofless and all. We reckon instead of 420 km/h you’ll get 410 out of the GS at best.

That is hardly a deal breaker, of course, and at the end of the day it comes down to which body style you like better. The rendering you see here does give an idea what the Grand Sport Chiron may look like, but it doesn’t tell the whole story. The Chiron has a unique roof design that is part of the interior design. Chopping that thing off probably requires heavy modifications of the mid-section of the car.

What you can be sure of is that Bugatti Chiron Grand Sport will get the same 1,500 horsepower W16 quad turbo engine as the coupe mated to the new dual-clutch transmission.

PostHeaderIcon Bugatti Chiron Goes Official

Bugatti Chiron-Official-0

As expected, the all-new Bugatti Chiron super-hyper-ultra car has been officially unveiled prior to taking the stage by storm at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The headlines are amazing, but not surprising: 1,500 horsepower, 1,600 of peak torque, 0 to 100 km/h in less than 2.5 seconds, and top speed of 420 km/h or 260 mph (limited).

The engine powering the beast that is the Bugatti Chiron is the same 8.0 liter W16 quad-turbo unit. Just about the only new feature is a two-stage turbocharging system. So contrary to the rumors, the Chiron is not a hybrid. Or if it is Bugatti is not saying anything at this stage. The full specs of the final production model are yet to be released.

What they can reveal for now is that production of Chiron will be limited to 500 units just like the Veyron, and that 150 units have already been spoken for at the base price of €2.4 million. Design-wise, the car is pretty much identical to the Vision Gran Turismo concept which is both good and bad. Good because it’s a cool design, bad because we’ve all seen it before and it’s a bit anti-climactic.

Other innovative highlights of Bugatti Chiron include a carbon fibre monocoque, a newly designed adaptive chassis, and bespoke tires. The interior is also new and looks pretty awesome in the pictures. Just like its predecessor, the Chiron will undoubtedly spawn a greta many different variants.

“It is part of human nature to cross boundaries and set new records – to run 100 m faster than ever before, to fly even further into space and to enter new realms. This striving is also our driving force at Bugatti,” said Wolfgang Dürheimer, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S., at the presentation of the Chiron. “The Chiron is the result of our efforts to make the best even better.”

Bugatti Vision GranTurismo-Paris-0

Bugatti has found a new use for the Gran Turismo model car they have built based on the virtual concept. Originally created to promote the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo concept in Gran Turismo 6 video game, the car these days serve as a good teaser for the upcoming Chiron.

It is not exactly a secret that the Chiron is based, in its design at least, on the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo. The head and taillights, the unique shape of the quarter panels, some of the aero parts even, will be used in the production model with almost no change at all. That’s a bit of a bummer because now we won’t be excited when they take the wraps of the real thing. But at least we know it looks cool, so that’s good.

The footage above was shot during a concept car show in Paris where Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo took the stage as a static display. When it’s finally turned into a production model in form of the Chiron though, the car will pack a hybrid powertrain with a mind-bending 1,500 horsepower power output and a top speed of well over 450 km/h. If you think that is insanity itself, you’re right.
