How Much Power Does The Bugatti Chiron Really Make?
With 1,479 horsepower under the hood, the Bugatti Chiron is far from being the most powerful supercar in the world. In fact, when compared to supercars like Lotus Evija (1,972 horsepower), Rimac Nevera (1,914 horsepower) or even the Hennessey Venom F5 (1,817 horsepower) you could say that the Chiron lost the battle. Still, it is on the top list of the most powerful, fastest supercars in the world. But, does it really deliver the amount of power claimed by Bugatti?
Bugatti Divo Races Chiron And Veyron SS In Forza Horizon 5
Forza Horizon 5 launched on November 9, 2021 and, as it was to be expected, we already have a lot of gameplay video. While there are of course a lot to choose from, one of our favorites puts the new Bugatti Divo against the Chiron and the Veyron SS. A race everyone dreams about having in real life too, don’t you think?
Veyron vs Chiron; the ultimate Bugatti showdown
We all know that the Bugatti Chiron is fast when compared to its predecessor, the Veyron. But by how much? Well, to find out, James who runs TheStardman Youtube Channel pits his Veyron against Bugatti’s latest hypercar, in a one-mile, multi-million dollar showdown.
2024 Bugatti Bolide - The Track-only Hypercar Will Enter Production And Arrive In 2024
Bugatti has announced a new extreme version of the Chiron. They did so at Quail, at this year’s prestigious Monterey Car Week. Dubbed the Bolide, it is a car with a name that is as cliché as its design. "But didn’t Bugatti take the wraps off of the Bolide last year?" Well, you’re right. However, the Bolide Super sports car you saw last October was just a concept, and Bugatti has now decided to put the Bolide into production.
Bugatti Should Really Consider Building a Front-Engined Coupe
Rimac is now a major shareholder in Bugatti, with 55 percent being owned by Rimac Automobili and 45 percent owned by Porsche. With this, new opportunities are being presented for both companies. Rimac will benefit from Bugatti’s expertise in building hypercars, while future Bugatti products will make good use of Rimac’s high-performance electric drivetrains. We already know that a V-8 hybrid version based on the Chiron is being planned, but what if Bugatti, under Rimac, come up with a new model, and what if it’s front-engined?
North Americans Just Can’t Get Enough Bugatti It Seems
Historically, Bugatti’s biggest market has been Europe, which really isn’t surprising for a French automaker with a German parent company – Volkswagen AG. This year, however, things have changed, and – as it turns out – North Americans really, really like Bugatti these days. So much so, that North America is now the region leading sales for Bugatti.
Bugatti Merges with Rimac to Become Bugatti - Rimac, Riding on the Back of Porsche
We have been following this story (Bugatti-Rimac merger) for a while now at TopSpeed and the day has finally come. Porsche and Rimac , the Croatian EV performance automaker, have agreed to form a joint venture that will include Volkswagen’s high-performance marque; Bugatti .
Bugatti Goes Sensor Crazy To Ensure The Chiron Super Sport Can Easily Hit 273 MPH
We can all agree that the Bugatti Chiron and all of its derivatives are engineering feats. The Chiron has been around for a while and has pretty much set the benchmark for the luxury hypercar. However, the even more insane Chiron SuperSport is now in its final stages of development and engineers are working to perfect the recipe. The Chiron’s incredible hardware, be it the suspension, chassis, engine, or aerodynamics, all work together to achieve maximum efficiency. In order for them to perfectly work together, engineers are enhancing the software suite of the mighty Chiron.
Volkswagen Debates Bugatti’s Fate As the Pressure of Electrification Rises
Recently, a new consortium offered close to $9.2 billion in order to buy Lamborghini off VAG. Theoffer was turned down and a new offer was made. That offer, too, was apparently turned down, but that doesn’t mean the German concern is not in the midst of deciding what to do with its assets. Bugatti has enjoyed a good run under VAG ownership and the French manufacturer continues to come up with limited editions based on the Chiron. With that being said, it appears not all is as good as it looks on the outside. Volkswagen Audi Group is currently debating on whether Bugatti should continue to be a part of the company’s portfolio or not and a certain Croatian manufacturer might take the opportunity.
The Bugatti Bolide Made Its First Public Appearance in Milan And Sounds Epic
The Milano Monza Motor Show (MIMO) was held as an open-air event between June 10th to June 13th, 2021. It was organized in conjunction with the cities of Milan, Monza, and the region of Lombardy in Italy. The motor show played host to 50 new models from several exotic automakers.
Bugatti was amongst the automakers to make an appearance at MIMO with its latest selection of hypercars. The French Automaker showcased the whole Chiron family, including the Chiron Pur Sport, Chiron Super Sport, and the Bolide.
Bugatti Debuts The Chiron Super Sport As The 14th Iteration Of The Chiron
On one hand, you have automakers that come up with anniversary or special editions of their models once in a while. On the other hand, you have Bugatti – a company that has been milking the Chiron with no end in sight. The latest iteration of the Chiron – the 14th model – is called the Chiron Super Sport. The company revealed it a day after teasing it. It is pretty much the same as the Super Sport 300 that was launched a couple of years back. Bugatti says this is more comfortable as a daily driver and has a higher top speed – 273 mph as opposed to 261 mph.
Bugatti Just Teased Yet Another Spin-Off of the Chiron
While I consider it a bad habit, Bugatti has quite the knack for taking a single car and milking the hell out of it to the point that you can’t help but think it’s time for something new. Take the Bugatti Chiron, for example. Launched in 2016, the Chiron has been the basis for no less than 14 different vehicles from the Chiron Sport all the way up to the La Voiture Noire and Bugatti Bolide. Just when you think you’ve finally had enough, here comes Bugatti teasing yet another Chiron-based model, leaving us to wonder just what else can the company make from a single design?
Bugatti’s Trip To The Nürburgring Made For an Awesome Photoshoot!
Bugatti’s vehicle fleet is absolutely crazy and, honestly, outright expensive. Between the Bugatti Centodieci, the Divo, the Chiron Pur Sport, and the Chiron Super Sport 300+, you’d have to pony up some €20 million or about $24.5 million at current exchange rates if you wanted to own one of each. In return for that massive sum of money, you’d have a total of 6,135 horsepower and about 4,720 pound-feet of torque in your garage just waiting to be unleashed. For a brand like Bugatti, however, it’s important that each and every car is perfect, and that’s why it routinely puts each one through some of the most extreme testing you can imagine. Recently, the company took its entire fleet to the Nürburgring, and we’re lucky enough to have some pretty sweet images from the trip.
Bugatti Chiron Sport "Les Légendes du Ciel" Meets Dassault Rafale Marine
There aren’t many things that are faster than a jet fighter aircraft, but that doesn’t stop hypercar manufacturers to occasionally pit their creations against one. In this case, we are talking about the Bugatti Chiron "Les Légendes du Ciel", of which only 20 have been made. The car was officially introduced in November 2020 and features many Aviation-inspired design cues. It’s also one of the fastest road-going production cars ever made. However, the question remains: will the Chiron’s sheer power be enough to withstand a Dassault Rafale jet fighter and its 7,227 horsepower and 7.5 tons of thrust?
Check out our first sighting of the Bugatti Centodieci As It’s Put Through Hardcore Testing
Bugatti seems to have a special liking towards the Chiron. There are five spin-off versions of the supercar, with the latest one being the Centodieci. The Centodieci was introduced in 2019 as an EB110-homage model that will be limited to just 10 examples. There’s still some time before the car arrives, but one of the first prototypes was recently spotted testing at the Nurburgring. Looks sexy, doesn’t it?
2020 Bugatti Centodieci
The 2020 Bugatti Centodieci is a limited-edition version of the Chiron. Just like the 2019 La Voiture Noire, the 2020 Centodieci is a significant departure from the Chiron it is based on, sporting a notably different exterior. While the La Voiture Noire is a tribute to the Type 57 SC Atlantic from the 1930s, the Centodieci pays homage to the Bugatti EB110, a supercar built from 1991 to 1995. The 2020 Centodieci is limited to only 10 units.
The Centodieci is the fifth official variant of the Bugatti Chiron. It joins the Chiron Sport, the 110 Ans Bugatti model that celebrates the company 110th anniversary, the La Voiture Noire, and the track-prepped Divo. Since Centodieci means 110 in Italian, it also celebrates 110 years since Bugatti was established by Ettore Bugatti in Molsheim, France.
1992 Bugatti EB 110 SS
When Bugatti launched production of its world-beating, 1,000-horsepower, 8.0-liter, quad-turbo Veyron in 2005, the auto world went just a little bit of crazy. And rightfully so. That said, the Veyron owes a good deal of its success to this – the EB 110. Produced in limited numbers throughout the ‘90s, it was the only production model created during Italian entrepreneur Romano Artioli’s short stint as Bugatti head honcho. Considered one of the very first street-worthy mid-engine supercars of the ‘90s, the EB 110 was a true technological tour de force in its own right, with a high-revving, quad-turbo, 60-valve, 3.5-liter V-12 engine mounted behind the cabin, an active rear wing, and lightweight carbon fiber body. Indeed, prior to the release of the legendary McLaren F1, the EB 110 was in contention for fastest production car on the planet.

The Bugatti La Voiture Noire Is Real, And It’s Been Spotted On the Road
2019 was the year when Bugatti unveiled the La Voiture Noir (The Black Car) in Geneva. The La Voiture Noire is a one-off model built to celebrate Bugatti’s 110th anniversary, it was sold before the public got a chance to see it, and pays respects to Ettore Bugatti’s stunning Type 57SC Atlantic, a car that disappeared from the carmaker’s workshops during the Second World War and was never found to this day.
The First Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport to Land Stateside Is Downright Gorgeous
Bugatti introduced the Chiron Pur Sport, a handling-focused version of the Chiron, in March 2020, but it took the French company until January 2021 to deliver the first customer car. And that’s not surprising given that all Chirons are hand-built and that Bugatti’s factory is rather small. The world’s first Chiron Pur Sport was delivered in the United States and it’s downright gorgeous thanks to its two-tone exterior finish and brightly colored interior.
Bugatti EB110 - A Great Car That Didn’t Get The Credit It Deserved
Many consider the 1990s to be a Golden Age for supercars. Many poster cars have come precisely from this era. I myself have posters and scaled models of many of them. Lamborghini Diablo, Ferrari F50, Honda NSX, McLaren F1, Jaguar XJ220, and others some of the most well-known representatives of their time. There is another one, however. The Bugatti EB110 was the French take on a 1990s supercar and, despite being relatively forgotten by some, it was an awesome car. Here’s everything you need to know about it.
The Bugatti EB110 SS Is Special In Its Own Right, But This One Has An Interesting Story
Why the Pur Sport Is the Ultimate Bugatti Chiron
Bugatti has created many iterations of the Chiron since the launch of the original one. But, if we had to pick the best one from the lot, it would be the Chiron Pur Sport. The company will produce just 60 examples of this beast. But hey, it’s not just us who think it’s the best version of the Chiron; a lot of people concur with the same thought, including Doug DeMuro..
The Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport Is Better On The Road Than You’d Expect
Hypercars are one of the most fascinating categories of cars ever to exist. Over the past two decades, Bugatti has been consistently breaking speed records as well as price tag records in its class, with very few manufacturers being able to compete with the old French brand. Just like its predecessor, the Chiron has had more than a few versions made, some of which are highly-exclusive. With that being said, only one of those versions can be the ultimate.
