If you prefer your automotive programming to have thick British accents, Top Gear’s Chris Harris has some juicy details of the Bugatti Chiron. As the successor to the Veyron, it has large shoes to fill. In a YouTube clip uploaded last night, he touches on the finer points of the car. The aerodynamic features do a great job of keeping the car planted at speed but don’t try it on cold tires. The whole tire situation is a bit silly. Some publications have listed a set of replacement rubber for the Veyron at $30,000, which could be an insignificant invoice if you own such a car. Chris mentions that tire pressure is displayed to two decimal places, but why?
Anyone who drives triple digits on street legal tires is putting themselves and others in danger. Race rubber would put an end to ridiculous tire costs and the annoyance of monitoring pressures while you should be focused on the road ahead. Sensational journalism has its place, and as such Chris mentions the possibility of a future model possibly breaking the 300 mph barrier. We’re not saying it’s impossible, but given the amount of boost required to push a Ford GT to 293 mph, it seems improbable. We appreciate the engineering and attention to detail that is clearly seen in the Chiron, but more than anything we applaud Bugatti for the encore performance.
