BUGATTI_ Chiron_LUXURY_NEWS_ONLINE_JAMESThe anticipated full top speed of the Bugatti Chiron is believed to be around 463 km/h (288 mph). Its predecessor (the Bugatti Veyron SS) makes almost 220 kW (300 bhp) less than the new Chiron, and although the Chiron’s limiter gets it only to 420 km/h (261 mph), the speedometer gets up to 500 km/h (310 mph).

‘The result is unbelievable acceleration which only comes to an end in the twilight zone somewhere beyond the 400 km/h mark’ –

This feat of engineering resulted in the W16 engine of the Bugatti Chiron being able to develop an unbelievable 1,103 kW (1,500 bps) from its 8 litres of displacement.

BUGATTI_ Chiron_LUXURY_NEWS_ONLINE_JAMESBUGATTI_ Chiron_LUXURY_NEWS_ONLINE_JAMESBUGATTI_ Chiron_LUXURY_NEWS_ONLINE_JAMESThe engine reaches its maximum torque of 1,600 Nm thanks to the turbocharger which Bugatti actually even developed itself. The 4 turbochargers are now double-powered and already guarantee maximum torque at 2,000 rpm, and the torque is maintained at this level all the way up to 6,000 rpm. The result is unbelievable acceleration which only comes to an end in the twilight zone somewhere beyond the 400 km/h mark. Source
