To produce 1500 PS, reportedly.

Two prototypes of the Bugatti Chiron have been spotted testing, revealing the rear-end design of the upcoming hypercar. It is expected to debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

The roof that flows towards the rear appears to draw inspiration from the Bugatti Type 57.

The rear-end looks nothing like that of the hypercar it succeeds, the Bugatti Veyron. While the Veyron follows a curvy and bulbous approach, the Chiron will look more aggressive and heavily styled, as seen in the Bugatti Vision GT concept. The roof that flows towards the rear has a strong central line running across and two cutouts for the rear view, which appear to draw inspiration from the Bugatti Type 57.

The Chiron will pack a revised 8.0-liter W16 quad-turbo engine, which will deliver 1500 hp and 1500 Nm of torque through a 7-speed double clutch gearbox to the AWD system. According to a report, it 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.

Bugatti has already given a preview of the Chiron to select clients, and have started accepting orders, reportedly. Reports suggest it will be limited to 500 units, of which 120 examples have been booked.
