In-Depth Look At The New Bugatti Chiron: Video
Motor Trend talks with Bugatti’s top brassby Mark McNabb, on
It’s not every day a new Bugatti rolls out of Molsheim, France. In fact, the last hypercar it built, the Veyron, dates back to 2005. Now the Chiron takes its place as the automaker’s sole offering and Volkswagen Group’s crowing jewel. The Chiron received its official debut at this year’s Geneva Motor Show to a worldwide crowd of enthusiasts and journalist hungry for more power, higher top speeds, and more extravagant luxury. Of course, Bugatti delivered on all fronts.
However, before the curtains were pulled back, our friends over at Motor Trend got a behind-the-scenes look at the Chiron in a closed studio outside Hamburg, Germany. Editor-at-large Angus Mackenzie had the privilege of getting a one-on-one overview of the Chiron with a few of Bugatti’s most important minds, including head designer Achim Anscheidt, chief engineer Willi Netuschil, and Bugatti’s chairman and CEO Wolfgang Durheimer.
These three men discuss how the car came together, the reasoning and historical tribute behind the way it looks, and the way Chiron will push the Bugatti brand into the next decade.
It’s rare to get such an inside view of an automaker’s reasonings, much less from an automaker like Bugatti. It’s hard not to be impressed with the way Anscheidt and his design team incorporated so much into a flowing, seamless design, yet still make it possible for Netuschil and his engineering team to further the car’s performance limits beyond even the fastest Veyron.
