Could debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
Bugatti has, according to internet reports, been hosting several private unveilings of the upcoming Bugatti Chiron (name unconfirmed) well ahead of its expected public debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in March.
Clients who attended the event have received an alleged teaser of the hypercar, which reveals the characteristic “horse shoe” design line that forms the basis for its exterior design. Previewed in part by the Bugati Vision GT, the Chiron will feature an evolutionary exterior styling that is more angular and aggressive than the Bugatti Veyron.
Power will be sourced from a throughly revised 8.0-liter W16 quad turbo engine, which will reportedly produce 1500 hp and 1500 Nm of torque. It will be paired to a 7-speed double clutch gearbox, and is capable of sprinting from 0-100 km/h in 2.3 seconds, 0-300 km/h in 15 seconds, before hitting a rumored top speed of 500 km/h.
The Bugatti Chiron will be limited to 500 units, and is reported to be priced from EUR 2.5 million. Reports suggest that 120 units have already been spoken for.
