The model that will replace Bugatti's iconic Veyron will have a higher top speed,and will be more usable on the track and feature better brakes. This the new hypercar is known online as the Bugatti Chiron.
According to inside sources, the Chiron will feature the same basic quad-turbocharged 8.0-litre W16 engine as the Veyron. However, boost will be increased and at least two of the turbos will be electrically driven units. As a result, the new French hypercar should pump out 1500 hp and consequently be capable of hitting 100 km/h in just over 2 seconds before topping out at over 450 km/h. The revised seven-speed dual clutch transmission and all-wheel drive system featuring torque vectoring will also aid in achieving these numbers.
The car will be based around the same carbon fibre architecture as the Veyron but it is reported that over 90 per cent of the parts will be brand new or revised. These new parts will be both stronger and lighter in an effort to ensure that the Chiron weighs less than the Veyron.
