Bugatti’s new hypercar is ready to make you forget about the Veyron

The 21st century has brought us many fantastic supercars, but when it comes to performance, there’s one to rule them all. I’m talking about the Bugatti Veyron. It was discontinued in 2015 after 450 units were built over 10 years, during which time, it reigned as the fastest street-legal production car in the world. The Veyron Super Sport achieved 257.87 mph in 2010, a Guinness World Record that has survived to this day. This will change soon, however, as Bugatti has just unveiled a brand-new hypecar to replace the Veyron.

Meet the Chiron, the vehicle Bugatti claims as "the world’s most powerful, fastest, most luxurious, and most exclusive super sports car."

Improving an already incredible supercar that has a 1,184-horsepower W-16 engine and can hit close to 260 mph without a speed limiter is a daunting mission, but Bugatti somehow managed to best the Veyron. Not surprisingly, the car has been named after Louis Chiron, Bugatti’s factory driver in the European Championship in the early 1930s. He was one of the fastest drivers in the pre-Formula One racing era and previously inspired Bugatti to name the 1999 18/3 Chiron Concept after him. It’s been 17 years since that concept, but Chiron’s name now adorns what will become one of the greatest supercars in history.

The Bugatti Chiron made its debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show and the Molsheim-based brand claims it will shatter several record. “It is part of human nature to cross boundaries and set new records – to run 100 m faster than ever before, to fly even further into space and to enter new realms. This striving is also our driving force at Bugatti,” said Wolfgang Dürheimer, President of Bugatti Automobiles. “The Chiron is the result of our efforts to make the best even better.”

Keep reading to find out what makes the Bugatti Chiron special and sets it apart from its already spectacular predecessor.

Updated 11/11/2016: Bugatti dropped a new video featuring its latest supercar. The new video features some endurance tests in the scorching heat of Death Valley and other American deserts.
