To break cover at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
Bugatti has dropped a new teaser video of the Bugatti Chiron, ahead of its world debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in March. Bugatti has already teased the external design of the Veyron’s successor via last year’s season greetings card.
The new video teaser reveals nothing about the external or internal features of the Chiron, but claims that the new hypercar “breaks new dimension”. Spyshots have revealed that the Chiron will adopt a more-aggressive and angular design that is heavily inspired by the Vision GT concept.
The Chiron will continue sourcing power from an 8.0-liter W16 engine, which could feature some form of electrical assistance. Reports suggest that the revised engine will output 1500 hp and 1500 Nm of torque that is sent to all four wheels via an AWD system.
With a more-powerful engine and new bodywork, the Chiron is expected to sprint from 0-100 km/h in 2.2 seconds, 0-300 km/h in 15 seconds, before hitting a rumored top speed of 467 km/h (290 mph).
Several reports state that the Chiron will be limited to 500 units and have a 5 year lifecycle. Prices are rumored to start from USD 2.1 million, and 130 examples have already been spoken for.
