Bugatti Chiron revealed at Geneva 2016: the world has a new fastest production car

http://www.carmagazine.co.uk/car-new...va-motor-show/











Consider the supercar goalposts moved. This is the new Bugatti Chiron, the worldís fastest, most powerful production car yet.

The successor to the Veyron, unveiled today prior to the Geneva motor show, costs more than 2.4m Euros, packs a 1480bhp punch and has a top speed limited to 261mph.

New Bugatti Chiron: the numbers

Theyíre big. The Chiron is shaping up to be the most unbeatable Top Trumps card ever.

Itís powered by an extensively redeveloped version of the Veyronís 8.0-litre quad-turbo W16, which produces what is claimed to be the highest figure yet extracted from a production car: 1500 metric horsepower (or 1480bhp). Maximum torque is an equally enormous 1180lb ft, spread between 2000 and 6000rpm.

Top speed is electronically limited for road use(!), to 420km/h (261mph). The limiterís there primarily for reasons of tyre durability. That actually makes it a touch slower than the Veyron Super Sportís record V-max of 267mph, but the maths say the Chiron could top 285-287mph or so with the limiter removed. Bugatti isnít quoting an official unrestricted top speed for the time being.

Nor is there an official 0-62mph just yet, but Bugatti reckons itíll be Ďless thaní 2.5 seconds.

Not the fastest car until it proves it. Guess they'd better get it on their test track.

Looks better than the Veyron but it still isn't an attractive car. I do want to see this estimated 285mph though.

No, especially since most of these idiots aren't even going to break 100 more than a few times in theirs.

Plus top speed aside a one:1 would probably rape it in an actual race.

I hoping to see one of these at this car show I'm going to in April. I saw the Bugatti Vision Concept at the Frankfurt auto show last year and it looked hideously cool AF.
