The Bugatti Chiron gets even more power as the 1,600hp Super Sport is revealed. Just don’t confuse it with the record-breaking Super Sport 300+… Read on for full details of this new hypercar.
- Bugatti Chiron Super Sport revealed
- Uprated version of standard Chiron
- Inspired by record-breaking Super Sport 300+
- 8.0-litre W16 boosted to 1,600hp
- 273mph top speed
- 0-186mph in 12.1 seconds
- £2.75m price tag
This is the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport – the latest limited edition version of an already ultra-exclusive car.
“Hang on”, you may be thinking, “wasn’t there already a Chiron Super Sport?” You’d be correct, for the most part. This follows from the existing Super Sport 300+, taking some of the styling but without that car’s eye-watering 300mph top speed.
Bugatti Chiron Super Sport design
The new Chiron Super Sport borrows the ultra-aerodynamic bodywork from the 300+ model, but does without the same exposed carbon fibre body and orange paint job.
It’s shown here in a silver and carbon two-tone finish, although expect a whole manner of paint finishes from the super-wealthy owners-to-be.
Upfront, a more aggressive bumper is fitted while new vents appear on the front wheel arches. Extended side skirts are fitted as well, while the back gets a stretched rear — like the old McLaren F1 GTR Longtail — as well as a pair of stacked exhausts.
Bugatti Chiron Super Sport engine and top speed
The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport retains the standard car’s 8.0-litre quad-turbocharged W16, though instead of a ‘measly’ 1,500hp, it produces a 1,600hp hammer blow.
Top speed is capped at 273mph — so no attempts at a world record for you, unfortunately — though it will hit 186mph from a standstill in 12.1 seconds. That’s only about a second more than it takes a Dacia Sandero to hit 60mph (in case you were struggling to pick between the two…)
Bugatti Chiron Super Sport interior
Despite the Super Sport name, this Chiron isn’t some stripped-back, track-oriented affair inside. It’s still full of ultra-luxurious leather, with the only clues that this isn’t an ‘ordinary’ Chiron being an exposed carbon fibre dashboard and some ‘Super Sport’ stitching.
How much does the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport cost?
Want a Bugatti Chiron Super Sport? Well, you’ll need a cool £2.75m to get your hands on one – and that’s before taxes…
Although, there’s a strong chance that Bugatti has already sold every Super Sport it plans to make. Tough luck if you haven’t already put your name down for one, then.
