300MPH BUGATTI CHIRON SUPER SPORT ROLLOUT BEGINS FOR LUCKY OWNERS
In the current world of hypercars, the top dog comes from the Bugatti stable in the form of the absolutely amazing Chiron Super Sport. This is a car that has it all, the styling not only makes it one of the best looking cars of its kind, every single curve, bump, dent and duct is there for a purpose - to go faster than any other production car on the planet. That’s pretty much what the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport is all about - speed. Ok, there’s more to it like the exclusivity and styling, but that can be bought elsewhere, getting near 300mph gives buyers very limited options out there.
Right now, the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ is the current production car top speed record-holder, able to hit an absolutely mind-blowing 490.484km/h (304.77mph). This new Bugatti Chiron Super Sport was created to commemorate what the 300+ achieved, and that means it’s almost as fast, but not quite. The new Super Sport also features a 8.0-litre W16 engine with four turbochargers in play, which equates to a ridiculously powerful output of a whopping 1577hp (1176kW) and an equally mind-bending torque figure of 1600Nm. If you lined up all the w16-powered Bugattis on the planet and got them to do a simultaneous race launch, their combined torque won’t send them all forwards, it will spin the earth backwards.
The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport can happily get owners to the 440km/h mark on the open road thanks to the tweaks made to the quad-turbocharged powerplant, which include a size upgrade to the turbos, an enhanced oil pump to keep everything optimally lubed up and changes were also made to the valvetrain and the cylinder heads. Work was also carried out on the transmission and the clutch was improved to handle the massive amounts of torque and safely direct it to the wheels. The chassis, suspension and steering has also seen some refinement too, with the end result being a safer drive with improved handling dynamics and the changes to the extended rear and the modified front end ensure a neutral balance.
All planned builds have been reserved by the wealthiest of the wealthy, the full allocation is spoken for and there’s an extensive waiting list. If more spots do open up thanks to more demand, those owners will be in for a very long wait, but looking at the total package that is the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport, it's well worth the wait. Until ten owners will have to slum it in their Koenigseggs or Paganis. One of the first of the Chiron Super Sports to be delivered received special treatment from Bugatti’s Sur Mesure, the brand’s version of McLaren’s SVO side of things where all the super special models are born. This extremely limited edition Bugatti Chiron Super Sport, like one of one, features the most amazing bespoke paint called Vagues de Lumière, which loosely translated means ‘waves of light’ - rather apt we think. This intricate style is a demonstration of the extent that customers are able to tailor their Bugatti to make it unique to them. The intricate patterns you see aren’t from precise robotic hands, they’re hand-painted, and the pattern is meant to mimic the way light reflects off Chiron Super Sport’s curvaceous bodywork.
Christophe Piochon, President of Bugatti Automobiles, comments: “It’s extremely exciting to be witnessing the first customer units of the Chiron Super Sport come together within our Atelier. Hearing brand new 8.0-liter W16 engines fire up for the first time, knowing that they are soon to become a centerpiece of our customers’ collections across the globe is a personal highlight. The experience of driving a Chiron Super Sport cannot be compared to anything else the automotive industry has to offer, and we very much look forward to our customers covering many unforgettable miles behind the wheel.”
As soon as video is of the Vagues de Lumière model is released, you'll see it here first.
