Yet another new variant in the Bugatti Chiron range. But this new Chiron Super Sport actually takes all the technical elements of the Chiron Super Sport 300+, with a maximum speed limit set at 440 km / h and a 1600 horsepower engine.
In the Bugatti Chiron family, not all models meet the same specifications. The normal Chiron aims to offer the best possible versatility on the road, while still being able to reach 420 km / h in top speed. The Chiron Sport adds an additional degree of efficiency on the circuit, always with the possibility of exceeding the fateful bar of 400 km / h. The Chiron Pur Sport, for its part, renounces this maximum speed (restricted to 350 km / h) in favor of a chassis and a gearbox optimized as much as possible for driving on the circuit.
For those who wanted to drive as fast as possible behind the wheel of their Bugatti Chiron, they had to opt for the Super Sport 300+ version. Equipped with a quad-turbo W16 pushed to 1600 horsepower and a different aerodynamics (long tail, displaced exhausts …), it managed to reach 490 km / h in 2019 during an attempt organized on the circuit of ‘Ehra Lessien. But its 30 copies have all found buyers and it is no longer in the catalog.
A more discreet Chiron Sport 300+
Rest assured, the fastest of the Chiron is back in the catalog thanks to the arrival of the “short” Chiron Super Sport, which incorporates all the technical elements of the Chiron Super Sport 300+: its long tail and its modified body (which weighs 23 kilos less than a normal Bugatti Chiron), but also the W16 increased to 1,600 horsepower. We note all the same the appearance of rims with a new design, also compatible with very high speeds. As on the 300+, this maximum speed will be limited to 440 km / h on the copies delivered to customers. for reasons of security (and especially of responsibility, one imagines). Unlike Hennessey or SSC, Bugatti does not want to take the risk of letting anyone try to break a speed record. Rest assured, it should be enough to fit on the highway without too much difficulty: Bugatti announces a 0 to 200 km / h dispatched in 5.8 seconds (against 5.5 seconds for the Chiron Pur Sport and 6.1 seconds to the normal Chiron). The 0 to 300 km / h is reached in 12.1 seconds and the seventh gear of the box – extended – only engages at 403 km / h …
Bugatti also promises excellent behavioral neutrality on the circuit, even if it will probably not be able to achieve the efficiency of a Chiron Pur Sport on this terrain (or even that of a normal Chiron). And the Molsheim brand also claims a level of comfort preserved with a cabin still worthy of the most luxurious sedans on the planet. Unlimited in its production, the Chiron Super Sport will cost € 3,840,000 including tax in France.
