Bugatti Veyron Successor Is a New Chiron


Now that traditional Bugatti Veyron got retired it has a new successor known as Bugatti Chiron. This is another supercar which is the king of the speed and style. Many still mistake it for Veyron but this is wrong. So new 2017 Veyron is no other than 2017 Bugatti Chiron. The model was named after a race pilot from Monaco known as Louis Chiron.

A Car For Billionaires

It’s still unknown when to expect this car. Many people hoped to have seen it in 2016 but now there are assumptions that it will be released later this year. The price is impressive. You need at least $2.5 million to buy it.

Astonishing Performance

What is so special about this production and why there’s so much fussing around it? Partially because this is another member of Veyron family which is known for its speed and productivity. In terms of speed 2017 Bugatti Chiron is really an outstanding model. If you remember the latest version of Veyron was fast enough. It could reach up to 258 MPH. It goes without saying that this vehicle was the rightful owner of the crown of speed. However, its successor has even more ambitious plans. According to the latest statements, the new car by Bugatti is going to reach 288 MPH which is an impressive number.

A Real Veyron Successor

As for the platform choice, new Chiron will inherit a lot from its legendary relative Veyron. It is going to use the same type of platform. So you can expect to get the same type of carbon-fiber structure. However, the carmaker promises to modify it a bit and as a result, they’ll offer another type of car of extremely light weight. How many pounds is it going to lose? Still, a question because Bugatti doesn’t discover its plans about making slimmer vehicles.

What else can we expect from the new production? Its body will be redesigned so as to become more practical. Perhaps they will produce a vehicle which is functional and attractive as well. According to the latest statements and ambitions to lose weight we hope that the aspect of aerodynamics will be improved as well.

The same goes for the interior of this vehicle. The goal is to make it more ergonomic which is a good idea. There are still no details on this aspect but we assume that 2017 Chiron will add more features to make their car comfortable. All types of electronic devices are also highly anticipated.

1500 HP?

Now let’s proceed to technical aspects. It’s expected and it has been confirmed that the model will use the good old W-16 engine with 8.0 liters. What’s new about it? How about direct injection and even higher boost pressure? That’s true. It will be equipped with four turbochargers. Some of them will be powered electrically which is amazing news. The productivity of the model is up to 1500 horsepower which is more than earlier versions could produce. The torque is going to be around 1106 lb-ft.
