Bugatti Chiron Survives Extreme Hot Weather Testing In Death Valley


Even hypercars need to be able to withstand boiling temperatures.

The new Bugatti Chiron is the ultimate hypercar and the most extreme version to date, which is why it's had the automotive industry talking since it was released. The thing is, with a car this special, some rigorous testing is needed and Bugatti have a more intense program than most. It must work, because the car has already kicked ass at the Goodwood Festival of Speed without breaking a sweat, even though it's top speed has been limited. Most owners will only pose with the car anyway, so that's not a terrible thing.

Bugatti themselves just released a wicked little video that shows how it's tested the Chiron for extreme temperatures, and it's pretty mad what the cars have to go through.

The Bugatti Chiron is more complex than most hypercars with that 1,500 hp quad-turbocharged W16 engine powering it, and it needs to complete one of the most exactingand comprehensive test programmes out there. For this, more than 30 testvehicles were (or still are) in use, including these four models that Bugattiengineers took to the US this summer for endurance testing in Death Valley's scorching heat for four and a half weeks. They covered 21,750 miles and saw outside temps as high as 125-degrees Fahrenheit. While that's all very impressive, this video has also taught us something rather valuable. When you see a run-of-the-mill transport truck on the highway, it may be full of Chirons!
