Bugatti Chiron Engine
This supercar is powered by a quad turbo, 8-liter W-16 engine. The said power train produces a mind-boggling 1479 horsepower and 1180 pound-feet of torque. If we are to compare it to its predecessor, it is around 300 horsepower and 74-pound feet of torque better than the Veyron SuperSport.
Bugatti Chiron Top Speed
With that engine powering this supercar, the Bugatti Chiron will be able to hit 62 miles an hour from a standing start in less than 2.5 seconds. Yes, you read that right—less than 2.5 seconds. Suffice to say, the Bugatti Chiron will be able to zoom to 60 miles an hour faster than you can tie your shoes.
The Chiron can sprint to 124 miles an hour in less than 6.5 seconds. It would be at a speed of 186 miles an hour in less than 13.6 seconds.
We know that these are all mind-boggling numbers, but let’s put things in perspective.
Another supercar, the Lamborghini Centenario, needs around 24 seconds to reach 186 miles an hour. But the Chiron only does that in 13 seconds. And the Bugatti sports car is up to 3 seconds faster than the McLaren P1.
Comparing it to its predecessor, the Veyron SuperSport, the Bugatti Chiron is a second quicker.
Of course, motorists may worry that the Chiron would be too fast for them. So Bugatti limited the Chiron to a top speed of 261 miles an hour for safety reasons. Still, that is around 3 miles per hour faster than the record set by the Bugatti Veyron which hit 257.87 miles an hour.
Yet Bugatti expects the Chiron to set the record at around 270 miles an hour using a specially developed Michelin.
There are also reports that the Bugatti Chiron can hit 286 miles an hour on the race track.
With such great power comes the need for a superior braking system. Bugatti fitted the Chiron with front and rear discs that are 20mm larger and 2mm thicker. Made from carbon silicon carbide, the rear and front discs are lighter and more resistant to fade.
