Bugatti Chiron Super Sport: Long Story Fast
Brevity is the spice of life? Not really, when it comes to the own history. And not even when it comes to being exceptionally aerodynamic. So it's only logical that Bugatti has doubled the aerodynamics of its latest hypercar, the Chiron Super Sport. Firstly, of course, on the body, which grows by a full 25 centimeters for the special edition and also has revised air deflection elements at the front. At the same time, the weight of the new creation has been reduced by 23 kilograms. In contrast, the eight-liter W16 engine has gained another 100 hp, giving it a total of 1600 horsepower.
Combined? This fine-tuning results in a breathtaking 440 kilometers per hour top speed, which also goes hand in hand with even faster acceleration. But the company's own history is also being further expanded with the new Chiron offshoot: The white Bolide continues a long tradition of super sports editions that goes back to the time of the company's founder Ettore Bugatti. From the Type 55 from 1931 to the EB110 and the Veyron, the line of particularly extreme sports cars is now being extended to the Chiron, which is now getting a special edition of 30 vehicles. Seen in this light, one would also have to rewrite this one saying about stories themselves - at least in Molsheim. Here, »long story short« turns into »long story fast«.
