You have to know what you’re doing at 273 mph.
It’s been some 16 years since the earth-shattering introduction of the Bugatti Veyron. Before and since, Bugatti have led the race in more ways than top speed. In order to get there, they had to blaze trails in the realms of powertrain, aerodynamics and handling. And because they’ve topped the Veyron time and time again, most recently with the 273-mph Chiron Super Sport, as well as the near 305-mph Chiron Super Sport 300+, we know that they haven’t stopped changing the game. Bugatti says the Chiron Super Sport is “shaped by speed.” Here’s why.
When Bugatti made the Chiron Super Sport, they had to consider a whole new set of circumstances, because they were making a production car that would have to withstand being driven at speeds no production car had before. They had to make sure the Super Sport would be stable, reliable, powerful, and safe as it braved uncharted territory in the automotive world. The Super Sport has a longtail design, giving it just under an extra foot of length compared to the Chiron. This leads to lower resistance and higher speeds. To this end, Bugatti also increased the power of the engine to 1578 horsepower, and gave the car a new gear ratio as well as all-new Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
That speed needs to be sustainable, and the Chiron Super Sport makes every effort to add downforce and make the air that surrounds it turbulence-free so that your trip to 273 mph is safe and secure. Airflow through the radiator is increased by 8%, the front of the car has cylindrical air-holes reminiscent of the EB110, which look all the same size from the front, but are sized differently to precisely optimize the airflow. The exhaust tips are stacked to allow extra space for the rear diffuser, and those exhaust tips are made with double walled titanium that is as thin as 0.4 millimeters, preventing the exhaust gases which can reach up to 1560º F from causing any interference or harm to any part of the car. The Chiron Super Sport has been radically improved down to the electronically controllable chassis to deliver the ultimate performance and comfort, so while it isn’t easy for Bugatti to get to 273 mph, it is easy for you.
