This is our best look yet at the 1,500 hp Bugatti Chiron
The Chiron's design adds a few aesthetic sprinkles from the Vision Gran Turismo concept onto an evolved version of the Veyron's shape. The grille remains the brand's venerable horseshoe, but the narrow headlights squint to create an aggressive face. The hood now comes to a point at the front that sharpens the previous model's very smooth appearance. This photo also highlights the massive C-shaped intake along the side that allows the updated powertrain to gulp down cool air. While not visible here, a spy video showed a huge wing and diffuser at the rear. The Chiron appears to be a definite design improvement over the Veyron to our eyes.
Bugatti's latest work will reportedly pack 1,500 horsepower from an updated version of the Veyron's 8.0-liter W16 with electric turbochargers. Additional carbon fiber will also likely lower the weight compared to its predecessor. Fewer pounds and more power will allow a bolt to 60 miles per hour in as little as 2.5 seconds and a top speed of around 288 mph.
