Here's Why The Bugatti Chiron Is The Greatest New Car On The Planet


We were given exclusive access, as long as we wore white gloves.

The Bugatti Chiron. A $2.6 million masterpiece of automotive design and technology. And, yes, it’s ridiculously fast and powerful. The quad turbo 8.0-liter W16 engine is back (although 95 percent of it is all new) and now it produces 1,500 hp and 1,180 lb-ft of torque. With the aerodynamic ability to slice through air that’s three times the takeoff velocity of a Cessna 172 single-engine airplane, the Chiron will hit 60 mph in only 2.4 seconds. Top speed?

Well, it’s electronically limited to 261 mph but the speedometer reads up to 310. Oh, the possibilities. But those are just some of the Chiron’s extraordinary details that you may or not already know.
