Bugatti Chiron
The long-anticipated successor to the mighty Veyron finally arrived at this year’s Geneva Motor Show — and it didn’t disappoint. The all-new Chiron looks sleeker than its predecessor and carries a number of classic Bugatti styling cues, including the legendary horseshoe grille. Powering the Chiron is a newly-developed 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine producing 1500 horsepower and insane 1180 lb-ft of torque, available as low as 2000 rpm. This much power means some staggering stats: Chiron reaches 62 mph in less than 2.5 seconds, 124 mph in around 6.5 seconds and — most amazing of all — 186 mph in less than 13.6 seconds. The Chiron’s speed is limited to 236 mph for normal driving — a special key is required to unlock the maximum speed “limited for road use” of 261 mph. Only 500 Chirons will be built, with prices starting just north of $2.6 million.
