Bugatti has already pulled ahead by introducing their new Chiron luxury car. Like its predecessor: it sets a precedent in automotive engineering and more a showcase of Volkswagen’s engineering and design talent.
With a price tag of $2.5 million and a 1500 horsepower, this expensive car has 25% more power than the Veyron, and can shoot from a standstill to 60 mph in under 2,5 seconds. As any limited edition, only 500 pieces would be made and a third of them are already sold out.
This rare beauty blows its predecessors out of the water with its 8-liter, quad-turbo W16 engine that offers 1,478 hp. At nearly 340 pounds heavier than the Veyron (making it around 4,400 lbs), the Chiron luxury car has a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission giving 1,180 pound-feet of torque that peaks at 2,000 rpm.
The Bugatti Chiron luxury car comes with an adaptive chassis and will sprint in five driving modes – Lift, Auto, Autobahn, Handling and Top Speed. The last one can be activated only by a special key which allows it to reach its top speed of 261 MPH (electronically limited), just to put it in perspective the Airbus A380 flies at 560 mph. The tires specially developed with Michelin are built to withstand the extreme torque and speeds.
Clad in leather the luxury interiors are plush and from the looks of it a bit like what you would see in a Pagani, there is also luggage space of 44 liters. The analog speedometer is accompanied by three high-resolution displays which display information adaptively, the faster you drive the less details they show.
Being a Bugatti the sound system needs to be extraordinary too and it sure is, the tweeters have a one-carat diamond membrane for superior sound distribution and according to the company it is so good that it transforms the car into the “the world’s fastest concert hall.”.
A new set of brakes with titanium calipers pack enough stopping power to tame this beast and should things go south there is even a first of its kind airbag which deploys from a carbon fiber housing.
If you’re planning to order one of these luxury cars, Luxury Safes knows that deliveries for the Bugatti Chiron expensive car start in August this year. So, what are you waiting for? Prepare yourself to have the most luxurious summer of your life.
