The intersection of art, form, and technique, Bugatti notes that they are “determined to always offer the extraordinary. The superlative. The best. Only then it can be called a Bugatti.” Bugatti is a family of artists with Italian roots with a base in Molsheim, France. The Bugatti name reflects the best, most elegant, and innovative sports cars. The introduction of Bugatti’s Chiron is keeping with the principles of the company. As they describe it, the Chiron is “the quintessential ultimate super sports car: ultra-modern, incredibly fast, agile and powerful with a stylistically demanding design and the highest possible levels of comfort.”
Revealed at the Geneva auto show, the Chiron has been described as menacing, but in a complementary sense. As the most modern of the Bugatti family of cars, the designers of the Chiron follow the motto “Form follows Performance”, and the shape of this car is clearly a reflection of that motto. Generous surfaces with very pronounced lines, the shape of the Chiron accentuates its growing performance requirements.
With a minimal, yet luxurious interior, sitting in the driver’s seat of the Chiron evokes the feeling of sitting at the helm of a spacecraft – all of those driving and piloting fantasies of boyhood come rushing back. The minimalistic design and styling of the Chiron’s interior are sleek and also simple. The carbon fiber, flat-bottomed steering wheel is the ideal complement to the futuristic look of the dashboard and the center console. The futuristic look extends beyond the controls, along with leather and metal, the designers of the Chiron have integrated carbon fiber in the rest of the interior as well.
Under the Hood
MotorTrend’s review of the 2018 Chiron noted that “At 200 mph the Chiron feels utterly rock steady, preternaturally relaxed, barely breaking a sweat—exactly what you would expect of a car running at less than 75 percent of its potential.” With a capacity of 236 miles per hour, the revised W-16 engine is the perfect pairing for performance with the superb styling of the machine itself. Want the details? Here’s what you’ll want to know about the engine: 16-cylinder, four turbochargers, 1,500 horsepower, and efficiency class G.
