Bugatti has announced that the first eight Chiron Super Sport 300+ units are assembled and ready to ship to customers. In total, it is planned to assemble 30 such cars, each worth 3.5 million euros. The automaker has devoted the last 24 months to fine-tuning the hypercar, in particular, the maximum speed on client cars was electronically limited to 442 kilometers per hour.
In 2019, the Chiron Super Sport 300+ managed to set a world speed record – the hypercar accelerated to 490.484 kilometers per hour. It is driven by an eight-liter W16 engine with four turbochargers, which was boosted from the standard 1,500 to 1,600 horsepower.
In order to reduce weight, the hypercar was equipped with magnesium alloy wheels and unpainted outer panels made of carbon fiber, at the rear – a new tail unit, recognized to stabilize air flows, due to which the Chiron Super Sport 300+ is 25 centimeters longer than the regular Chiron Super Sport. It also has four exhaust pipes that protrude outside the body to neutralize the effect of exhaust gases on aerodynamics.
Ordinary Bugatti Chiron and Chiron Sport produce 1500 forces and 1600 Nm of torque, accelerate to 100 kilometers per hour in 2.5 seconds and reach a maximum mark of 420 kilometers per hour. The cost of such a hypercar is 2.4 million euros.
