Bugatti's Monster W-16 Engine Is Here to Stay For 10 More Years

Bugatti’s Monster W-16 Engine Is Here to Stay For 10 More Years

The carmaker won’t turn to VW Group’s rooster of engines and will walk its own path

It wouldn’t be an understatement to say that 2019 was a mighty good year for Bugatti. The carmaker knows not to dwell too much on the past, though, and it’s already planning its future steps. On that note, we’re happy to report that Bugatti is planning to keep hold of the 8.0-liter W-16, which will live on “for [the] next decade.”

The info comes from Bugatti CEO Stephan Winkelmann himself, via U.K.’s Autocar, who had a chat with the bossman about the company’s plans for the quad-turbo engine.

The Bugatti Chiron Opens the Door For Even More New Cars in 2020

The Bugatti Chiron Opens the Door For Even More New Cars in 2020

“Derivatives are a must,” says Bugatti CEO

There shouldn’t be any doubt that Bugatti ended 2019 on a high note. Its 1,577-horsepower Chiron Super Sport 300+ went past the 300 mph barrier and it also spawned the likes of La Voiture Noire and Centodieci.

U.K.’s Autocar had a chat with Bugatti CEO Stephan Winkelmann, who revealed that the Chiron will be further used as a base for future Bugatti models. Think in the lines of Divo and the above-mentioned Voiture Noire and Centodieci rather than mere special editions.

How Much Does It Really Cost to Own a Bugatti?

How Much Does It Really Cost to Own a Bugatti?

Owning and most importantly maintaining a Bugatti is pretty dang expensive, but that’s not a surprise

There’s no point in explaining to you how Bugatti operates in the rarefied air found in the car industry’s stratosphere. You know very well that such a business model entails sky-rocketing price tags attached to any of the French carmaker’s products, but that’s one side of the iceberg. However, buying a Bugatti is one thing, while owning one and properly maintaining it is a whole different equation. A costly one too, as you’re about to find out courtesy of Manny Khoshbin.

Bugatti Could Bring Back the Galibier As an All-Electric Sedan if Volkswagen Approves

Bugatti Could Bring Back the Galibier As an All-Electric Sedan if Volkswagen Approves

The Bugatti Galibier is back in the rumour mill

At first a concept car like any other, the Galibieri quickly became the root for constant speculation on what might be Bugatti’s model. The two most forwarded possibilities where a sleek, super-luxurious sedan and a high-riding vehicle of sorts similar to the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, yet a new report from Bloomberg says that the Galibier could morph into a grand tourer or crossover motivated by an all-electric powertrain, provided Volkswagen AG greenlights the project.

Did You Know That the Bugatti Centodieci Is Actually an Electric Supercar?

Did You Know That the Bugatti Centodieci Is Actually an Electric Supercar?

Well, only occasionally, as you’re about to find out

The Bugatti Centodieci is one of the craziest hypercars to debut in recent times, and the fact that Bugatti is using it as a nod back to the EB110 supercar makes it even more enticing. Only ten units are to be built, and even though the spec sheet looks absolutely otherworldly, those numbers count for nothing when the hypercar has to be packed and trailered back to Molsheim after a public appearance.

Bugatti Chiron Super Sport's Record-Breaking Run Was This Close to Disaster

Bugatti Chiron Super Sport’s Record-Breaking Run Was This Close to Disaster

It took massive composure from Andy Wallace to avoid the mishap, who proved once again what a brilliant race driver he is

Have you ever stopped to consider just how much risk was involved in Bugatti’s record-breaking attempt with the Chiron Super Sport? We mean, the entire team behind the 300+ mph run did an outstanding job in not leaving any loose ties as expected, but even with all the preparations in the world, things were pretty close of going sideways in an instant. Or should we say airborne instead?

Cultured race driver Andy Wallace, the one who steered the Chiron Super Sport towards reaching the mind-shattering speed of 304 mph (490 km/h), has revealed that at some point doing the run, he “jumped the Chiron” at 277 mph (447 km/h).

2020 Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+

2020 Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+

Bugatti’s Chiron Super Sport 300+ is the fastest car on Earth. Or is it?

How should we put this? Well, there’s only one way, really: we all knew this was coming, but the real secret was how Bugatti would wrap it up. After the Veyron, it’s time for the Chiron to receive the distinguished Super Sport badge from Bugatti, following a speed record that’s both spectacular and a tad controversial to some extent. That’s something we’ll look at on another occasion, though, because today our attention will be wasted on one car and one car only: the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+.

Once again, Bugatti shows the world that it knows how to throw a party, especially one that celebrates the company’s 110th anniversary. The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ joins the carmaker’s fantastic-three - Divo, La Voiture Noire, and Centodieci - with at least the same amount of flair and plushness underlined by what could very well be today’s industry spearhead in automotive performance. Read on.

Bugatti Morphed The Legendary EB110 Into A New Century With the Stuningly White 2020 Bugatti Centodieci

Bugatti Morphed The Legendary EB110 Into A New Century With the Stuningly White 2020 Bugatti Centodieci

100 Horsepower More Than Chiron And Same Cornering Abilities As The Divo - This Is The Bugatti Centodieci

Capturing the spirit of the legendary Bugatti EB110, French boutique car maker Bugatti just unveiled the fantastic looking Centodieci. With a name that quite literally means 110, the Centodieci is one more special hypercar based on the Chiron’s architecture. Now, with 100 horsepower more for a total of 1,600 horsepower. Yea, I know. Crazy!

“With the Centodieci we pay homage to the EB110 super sports car which was built in the 1990s and is very much a part of our tradition-steeped history,” says Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti. “With the EB110, Bugatti catapulted itself to the top of the automotive world once again after 1956 with a new model.”
 
Apart from remembering the EB110, Bugatti also celebrates its 110th anniversary this year. In that regard, the creation of the Centodieci is only expected.

Ettore Bugatti Is Probably Flopping in His Grave Over The News About a Bugatti SUV

Ettore Bugatti Is Probably Flopping in His Grave Over The News About a Bugatti SUV

An electric SUV would probably work if Bugatti develops it the right way

Bugatti, the purveyor of one of the world’s most extreme performance cars, has reportedly gotten weak in the knees at the prospect of doubling its entire model lineup, increasing its portfolio from one vehicle to two. As if having the mind-boggling Chiron hypercar in the fold isn’t enough, Bugatti is setting its sights on developing, of all things, an SUV. Mind you, it’s not just a regular SUV that Bugatti is starry-eyed about; the French automaker wants an electric SUV to form a formidable one-two punch with the Chiron. No word yet on whether this plan has any legs to it, but it seems that the people within the company are already working on laying the groundwork for its development. Somewhere, wherever he is, Ettore Bugatti must be scratching his chin wondering what an electric SUV would do to the status of his marquee.

Bugatti is Going to Milk the Chiron to Death Before an All-New Car Comes to Life

Bugatti is Going to Milk the Chiron to Death Before an All-New Car Comes to Life

It’s all part of the job for one of the world’s most exclusive automakers

If there’s anything the Bugatti Veyron taught us beyond the fact that it’s fast, powerful, and awesome, it’s that Bugatti isn’t going to shy away from squeezing the last drop of cache out of its models, even if it means extending said model’s production life to a full decade. The Veyron lasted for 10 years with this strategy and history could repeat itself with the Chiron as the automaker’s plans for its incumbent hypercar are expected to extend until around 2024, maybe even 2025. It’s not an entirely surprising move on Bugatti’s part. The automaker still has a lot of possible Chiron variants and derivatives on the table, including an “extreme” version that could, if Bugatti really went after it, hit a top speed of 310 mph. The big question, at least with regards to an extreme Chiron, isn’t an “if” question, but, rather, an “is it worth it” question. That won’t be answered immediately, but knowing that it’s on the table means that it could happen. Either way, it doesn’t look like the Chiron is going away anytime soon.

Bugatti Could Flip the Super Luxury SUV Market If It Green Lights an SUV

Bugatti Could Flip the Super Luxury SUV Market If It Green Lights an SUV

The sentiment within Bugatti is that the company wants to add a second model

Just when you thought the super-luxury SUV market calmed down with Lamborghini, Bentley, and Rolls-Royce in the fold, Bugatti could enter the fray and turn the whole segment upside down. That’s the word that came out from no less than Bugatti’s own president, Stephan Winkelmann, at the Paris Motor Show. No confirmation has been made on the matter, but Bugatti is legitimately thinking about expanding its lineup, and an SUV reportedly has the inside track on getting greenlit if the company decides to give the Chiron hypercar a stablemate.

Video of the Day: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About the Bugatti Chiron

Video of the Day: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About the Bugatti Chiron

The Bugatti Chiron is one fine piece of automotive art and now that the Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron has made its debut, it’s only fitting that we learn all about the engineering that went into the Chiron. And that’s exactly what Carfection set out to do. As a fair warning, I have to advise you that the video goes beyond the 15-minute mark, but when you use the term “everything you want to know” about one of the finest automobiles in the world, you couldn’t really expect much less. After all, the Chiron delivers 1,479 gut-wrenching horsepower from a massive 8.0-liter W-16 engine that sits all of the way in the rear. This baby can sprint to 60 in 2.5 seconds and tops out at a number that only God (and maybe Bugatti) knows. Truth be told, there’s rumors that it can go over the 300 mph mark, but Bugatti won’t try because no tire in existence today can handle such speeds without ripping to pieces.

But, I digress. Let’s get back to that video. Go ahead and click play, and learn everything there is to know about the engineering that went into building one of the finest, fastest, and most expensive cars in the world!

The Bugatti Chiron made its debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show and the Molsheim-based brand claims it will shatter several records. “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.” Now, you can have it on your desktop.

Is Stefan Winkelmann's Lack of Interest in a Chiron Top Speed Run Proof He's Not Fit to Run Bugatti?

Is Stefan Winkelmann’s Lack of Interest in a Chiron Top Speed Run Proof He’s Not Fit to Run Bugatti?

Or maybe it’s because the Chiron can’t beat the Koenigsegg Agera RS...

2018 was supposed to be the year that Bugatti finally unleashed the Chiron on an open race track to see how fast it can really go. That was the plan when the French automaker unveiled the hypercar in 2016. But, now that we’re here, it looks like Bugatti is having a change of heart. There’s a good chance that we won’t see the Chiron do a top speed run this year. Worse, we may not even get to see it at all because, according to new Bugatti CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, the top speed test is no longer “a priority” for Bugatti.
