Spied: Bugatti Chiron sheds some camo

October 31, 2015
A fresh round of spy shots have given us our best look at Bugatti’s next-generation supercar. Believed to be called Chiron, Bugatti’s Veyron followup is expected to debut early next year at the Geneva Motor Show.

The latest spy shots come courtesy of Magazin ProDriver CZ. Although no front end shots were snapped, its clear from the rear views of the Chiron that it will adopt many of the design cues we saw on Bugatti’s Vision Gran Turismo concept. Some features set to carryover include an open rear-end design, central exhaust outlets and a circular side-blade treatment.

Under hood we’re expecting a hopped-up version of the Veyron’s quad-turbocharged W16. Thanks to the addition of direct-injection and electric turbos, the Chiron should produce 1,500 horsepower and 1,106 lb-ft of torque. Sending power to all-four wheels, the Chiron will be capable of accelerating from 0-60 in about 2 seconds. Top speed is runored at 288mph.

Perhaps even more eye-popping than those figures, the Chiron will reportedly sell for $2.4 million, or roughly $1 million more than the Veyron’s original asking price.

Bugatti will begin limited sales of the Chiron (just 500 units are tipped for production) shortly after the car’s Geneva debut.
