When it first debuted, the Bugatti Chiron was nothing short of hypercar history. The tradition continues with the 2018 model, which is more powerful than ever before. What’s more, this powerhouse is a dream to drive, with fluid steering, seamless handling and enormous power under the hood. Topping out at 261 mph, the Chiron speeds from 0-60 in a mere 2.5 seconds thanks to an 8-liter, 16-cylinder engine pumping out 1,479 horsepower. Even with its overwhelming speed and power, the Chiron offers a smooth and inviting road experience.
Styled in classic Bugatti fashion, the exterior boasts the trademark shape and sleek lines. The hypercar’s rounded shape and bullet-like profile exude speed and ease. The interior of the vehicle is a mix of modern stylistic approach with a nod to historical architecture. Interior colors compliment one another and highlight key features like the center console, which is shaped like the flying buttresses that shaped the architecture of the Gothic era. When it comes to technology, the Chiron mirrors a minimalist design with two high-resolution screens, which flank an analog speedometer, further melding the best of old and new.
