Feel the Force of the Acceleration Coming From The 1500hp Bugatti Chiron
The Bugatti Chiron is what you would consider a “numbers car.” THat’s because it has a list of numbers associated with it that seem almost unbelievable. For example, it has a price tag estimated around $2.5 million. It has a W16 motor with four turbochargers that come together to produce a neck snapping 1500hp that’s sent to all four wheels. It’s not just a fast car though, Bugatti set out to create the best drivers car with the Chiron, and from what we can tell they are definitely on the right track. They even claim that it has the best stereo of any car on the market to the point where it often referred to as the “world’s fastest concert hall.”
However, the really impressive numbers are in reference to the Chiron’s acceleration. This all wheel drive beast can blast off 0-60mph times around 2.5 seconds. If you keep your foot to the floor you’d hit 124mph in just 6.5 seconds. Now if you were really brave and kept the hammer down you’d hit 186mph in under 13.6 seconds. As a comparison, the Chiron’s predecessor, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport which had a 1200hp version of the quad turbo W16, took approximately 14.6 seconds to reach the same speed. That’s a full second, which in car racing, or drag racing, is a significant amount of time. Here you can get a little taste of the Chiron’s wicked acceleration as Drive Tribe’s Jethro Bovingdon goes for a ride with the Bugatti test driver. And when you get this kind of reaction from someone that’s driven a wide variety of supercars and race cars, you know it must be something special.
