Bugatti Has Spoken: The New Hypercar Officially Has A Name And Reveal Date


The official countdown has begun.

It’s finally going to happen, and we know everyone (including us) is anxious to see the real deal. Bugatti has just announced that its Veyron successor will be called the Chiron and that it’ll have its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show this March. Named for Louis Chiron, the most successful Bugatti works driver and the best racing driver in the world in the 1920s and 1930s (he won virtually all the major grands prix for Bugatti), the Chiron is currently being shown to select customers.

So far, more than 100 orders have been received and feedback has been, obviously, outstanding. Final testing is currently underway, as evidenced by a couple of new spy shots we’ve just come across. Bugatti claims that no other production super sports car of this caliber has been subjected to such a stringent, comprehensive test program. “The Chiron will set new standards in every respect. We will continue to produce the world’s most powerful, fastest, most luxurious and most exclusive production super sports car. With the Chiron, we will make the best significantly better,” stated Bugatti President, Wolfgang Durheimer. And there we have it. The W16 8.0-liter quad-turbo Chiron with an estimated 1,480 hp will be unleashed in three months' time.
