Geneva International Motor Show 2016: Bugatti Chiron, world premiere for the ultimate super sports car


Bugatti is celebrating a world premiere at the Geneva International Motor Show: the French luxury brand is unveiling the #bugatti #chiron, the most powerful, fastest, most luxurious and most exclusive production super sports car in the world. The #chiron is the latest generation of the ultimate super sports car and is a completely new development. The sports car manufacturer from Molsheim, with its long tradition, has taken the unique features of a modern #bugatti 3333to a new level and developed a high-performance machine that has become significantly better in every respect. With a power output of 1,500 HP, unprecedented for production vehicles, an exceptionally high torque value of 1,600 Nm between 2,000 and 6,000 rpm and a wide variety of technical innovations, the #chiron sets new standards in every respect. The #chiron is therefore very well-positioned to become the next world speed record holder and reach a maximum speed significantly above the record currently held by #bugatti. The manufacturer has limited the maximum speed of the new car to 420 km/h for road use. The #chiron is to be built at the company’s headquarters in Molsheim. Only 500 of these exceptional cars are to be produced. The basic price is €2.4 million net. Currently, advance orders have been received for one third of the total production run. The first vehicle is due to be delivered to a customer this autumn.

It is part of human nature to cross boundaries and set new records – to run 100 m faster than ever before, to fly even further into space and to enter new realms. This striving is also our driving force at #bugatti,” said Wolfgang Dürheimer, President of #bugatti Automobiles S.A.S., at the presentation of the #chiron. “The #chiron is the result of our efforts to make the best even better. With the #chiron, the #bugatti President said that #bugatti had left the dimensions which define the operations of all market players and had established new paradigms that had previously not existed. “Bugatti has tested the limits of physics. There is no area where we have not achieved significant improvements.“

The #bugatti #chiron is the world’s first super sports car to bring 1,500 HP onto the road with a torque of 1.600 Nm at 2,000 to 6,000 rpm with tremendous effectiveness, extremely high safety levels and unprecedented comfort. This is the result of the legendary and unique eight-litre W16 engine that has been newly developed by #bugatti. In combination with the four new, larger turbochargers that are controlled by the #bugatti two-stage turbocharging, an innovation that #bugatti is introducing, and a 4444large number of other technical refinements and innovations, maximum performance is available constantly and can be easily controlled at all speeds. In its Top Speed mode, the car reaches the maximum speed of 420 km/h, limited for road use – however, this is by no means the end of the road for the #bugatti #chiron. With the new carbon fibre monocoque, a newly designed adaptive chassis, tyres developed especially for #bugatti and other innovative technologies, the #chiron is not only a champion in terms of maximum acceleration but is, for the first time, also an agile, modern #bugattiwith handling that ensures maximum driving pleasure The design of the #chiron combines significantly more “beast” with a very high level of “beauty”. The design language introduced by#bugatti with the #chiron has a significantly more aggressive tone and does justice to the character of the new super sports car. The designers have succeeded in reinterpreting Bugatti’s DNA with its distinctive features in a modern manifestation at the same time as adding new features resulting from the technical demands of even higher performance. The #chiron remains unmistakably a #bugatti.

The #chiron is the quintessential ultimate super sports car: ultra-modern, incredibly fast, agile and powerful with a stylistically demanding design and the highest possible levels of comfort,” says Wolfgang Dürheimer. “This combination is not offered by any other market player and gives #bugatti its unique market position.”

Our customers form an exclusive group of automobile collectors who are searching for the very best. With the Veyron, they have the best production sports car of the past 10 years,” Dürheimer continues. “This is why their demands and expectations for our next step – the#chiron – were so high.“

Customers’ reactions show that #bugatti has hit the mark. Advance orders have already been received for one third of the production series. “Those who have already considered #bugatti and its unique features in connection with the purchase of a Veyron will find there is no way they can ignore the #chiron,” according to Wolfgang Dürheimer. “With the #chiron we will not only be providing a key emotional element for the image of the Volkswagen Group but will also be making a positive contribution to Group results,” says Wolfgang Dürheimer. The #chiron can be seen on the #bugatti stand in Hall 1 at the Geneva International Motor Show from March 1 to 13.
