The Fast & The Furious: Introducing the Bugatti Chiron



The Chiron is the fastest, most powerful, and exclusive production super sports car in Bugatti’s history. Its sophisticated design, innovative technology, and iconic, performance-oriented form make it a unique masterpiece of art, form and technique that pushes boundaries beyond imagination.


The Skyview option was developed in accordance with the attributes that characterize the Chiron. From inside, the glass roof enables a view into another dimension, flooding the cockpit with natural light. It generates a new feeling of speed and space, turning a drive in a Bugatti with skyview option into an incomparable, three-dimensional experience. The two glass elements are installed on either side of the central fin, which protrudes from the Chiron’s carbon fiber body and stretches fluidly towards the signature line, which defines the car’s unmistakable profile.


The heart of the Chiron is its quad-turbocharged 8 l W16 engine. This unique masterpiece generates an incredible 1,500 hp and 1,600 Nm of torque, with an almost linear power output between 2,000 and 6,000 rpm. Four high-performing turbochargers work in a two-stage controlled configuration, and define this champion of performance. A remarkable 60,000 liters of air are pumped through the engine every minute.


Simultaneously, 800 liters of water per minute circulate through the Chiron’s heart, and guarantee the cooling of the engine and generate the extraordinary power.
