To reach its unprecedented levels of performance, the CHIRON effortlessly merges its captivating beauty with sleek, muscular efficiency; a spectacular reinterpretation of the BUGATTI design DNA. The intelligent air intake management significantly improves aerodynamics and enhances the cooling efficiency for engine and brakes.
The distinctive quad LED headlights, for example, also serve as intakes routing air to the front brakes – and thus work as a remarkable example of functionality fusing with aesthetics. This enthusiasm for performance-oriented design continues in the interior, complemented by BUGATTI’s exquisite sense of comfort and luxury.
Mirroring the CHIRON´s exterior signature line, the LED illumination in the distinctive C-line form separates the two seats, and reveals the stunning functional beauty of the interior. The cockpit layout of the CHIRON gives the pilot all the necessary information within his range of vision. Proudly displaying the magic 500 km/h mark, the mechanical speedometer is a feast for the eyes. On the central console, milled from a single piece of solid aluminum, each unit has independent, adjustable displays.
The heart of the CHIRON is its quad-turbocharged 8 l W16 engine. This unique masterpiece generates an incredible 1,500 hp and 1,600 Nm of torque, with an almost linear power output between 2,000 and 6,000 rpm. Four high-performing turbochargers work in a two-stage controlled configuration, and define this champion of performance. A remarkable 60,000 litres of air are pumped through the engine every minute.
Simultaneously, 800 litres of water per minute circulate through the CHIRON’s heart, and guarantee the cooling of the engine and generate the extraordinary power. The new titanium exhaust system, with reduced gas back pressure, boosts this performance further. To maximise the CHIRON’s engine power, lightweight materials, such as titan and carbon fibre, have been used wherever possible.
