After two years of extensive development, Bugatti's headline-grabbing hypercar rolls off the line.
Owning a Bugatti is certainly not something you'd call affordable. Despite this, the Chiron Super Sport has been a smashing sales success. If you're among the lucky few affluent enough to afford such a car, you likely know that the testing and development of such extremely technical masterpieces takes a long time, with the final product arriving sometimes years after it was initially revealed.
That's naturally the case with the epic Chiron Super Sport 300+. After two years of fine-tuning and perfecting, the first eight examples have finally rolled off the production line in Molsheim, ready for delivery to their excited owners.
Bugatti is naturally very proud of having brought these first examples into the world.
"The Chiron Super Sport 300+ will forever remain a cornerstone of our marque's illustrious history as it elevated automotive performance to levels that were once thought to be unreachable," says Bugatti's managing director of production and logistics, Christophe Piochon. "It is the fastest hyper sports car Bugatti has ever made, and is a true testament to the engineering passion, technical expertise, and relentless pursuit of performance our brand is synonymous with. We are excited to deliver the first eight units of this record-setting pioneer to our customers, and for them to experience the sheer sensation of speed behind the wheel."
All finished in the stunning black-and-orange theme that has been synonymous with record-breaking Bugattis since the Veyron Super Sport, these new Chiron models look resplendent and ready for action. The attached image of a Chiron Super Sport 300+ with spattered bugs across its bodywork is especially exciting to us, and we hope that some of the lucky buyers use their cars as intended.
With an 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine developing 1,577 horsepower, the Super Sport 300+ is capable of achieving 0-60 mph in just 2.4 seconds, but unlike the actual record-setting one-off, this model isn't capable of 300 mph and will instead be limited to 273.4 mph. We don't think the 30 lucky owners will mind though, as we'd lose endless days just staring at this magnificent engineering artwork.
