With all the rumors running around about new players like the Henessy Venom GT breaking “ The Veyron barrier”, Bugatti’s position started to seem a little vulnerable before it made a comeback with the all new Bugatti Chiron. Being a true specimen of science and engineering, describing the Chiron would take the word “most” being used a lot.
The epochal dominion of Bugatti is that, unlike other super cars which are just a piece of carbon fiber strapped to a huge engine, Bugatti’s comes with exceptional luxury. The La-Ferrari for example have cut down on weight by removing trivial things like the AC, foot-mats or anything else that might provide even a modicum of comfort to the driver. In the Bugatti however things are offbeat. The car provides a catalog of options to give the driver the feel of a private jet. It manages to do this while having one of the shortest 0 to 100 kph time in the world. When you sit in the car you are greeted by an instrument cluster that looks like it’s been taken right off a spaceship. The Chiron has upto 500kph on it’s speedometer, another first among production cars.
It was hard to imagine anything better than the Veyron with it being the pinnacle of automobile evolution. The Chiron is a step ahead of this milestone and this just goes to show Bugatti’s commitment to being the best. With four turbochargers, 16 cyliders, 8000cc of displacement the car produces a mind boggling 1500 HP. The other crucial improvement was in the torque figures. The Torque reaches a maximum value at 2000 rpm and stays put till 6000 rpm, In dumber words this means the brutal acceleration keeps going unvarying up-to somewhere after 400kph. With a multitude of radiators, ceramic breaks, an automatically adjusting rear spoiler the car is prepared for any situation thrown at it.
The appearance of the Chiron is congruent to that of the Veyron. It comes in a selection of dual tone colors. But for a little extra money Bugatti can do a custom paint job. The leather for the hand stitched upholstery comes from the finest of Napa Valley. Every small detail of the car is fabricated with utmost attention, hence each element of the car needs a thousand words to describe.
With every stitch in the Chiron telling a story, you don’t just buy a Chiron you earn it.
