In 2004, the presentation of the Bugatti Veyron was a real explosion, resulting in a lot of admiration, discussion and emotion. The most expensive and fastest supercar of that time stayed in the top for more than 10 years due to many improvements and variations. And although most of the competitors have long been much more beautiful and faster, the Veyron is still appreciated. For more than 10 years, the public has been waiting for the same high-profile premiere from the company. And in 2016, the Bugatti Chiron appeared.

More beautiful

The new supercar was presented at the Paris Motor Show in 2016. It is impossible to find fault with the appearance of the novelty. You may get the impression that brilliant designers work in this company. Features of the body, the “look” of the car - everything remained very recognizable. But now the supercar looks much more modern than its old predecessor. The branded grille and air intakes on the bumpers have not gone away. But here the optics has undergone tremendous changes. Instead of twoconventional headlights are now adorned with four LED rectangles on each side, which are recessed into the car body. It would seem a strange solution with simple forms, but it looks very fresh and impressive. Bugatti Chiron showed how to look in 2016 to all the other supercars that come after it.

The back end has changed a lot, which is disappointing. The stern is now similar to a huge number of counterparts from other supercars. The profile of the car remained recognizable, mainly due to the signature two-tone body color.

Inside, the designers and engineers also did their best. A narrow center console with a minimum of adjustments and controls has long been a trademark of Bugatti cars. Chiron in this case is no exception. Luxurious leather upholstery is harmoniously combined with carbon inserts and metal knobs, buttons and other controls - only possible in Bugatti cars.

Even faster

Let's move on to the most important thing in the new Bugatti Chiron: engine performance and acceleration performance. The power of the W16 engine with a volume of 6 liters has increased to a frightening 1500 horsepower. The car accelerates to 100 km / h in just 2.2 seconds. The speedometer has a maximum speed mark of 500 km/h, but with the help of software settings, it is blocked to a “modest” 420 km/h. Perhaps in future versions this figure will just grow to the maximum mark.
