The following Text is from Wikipedia - the free encyclopaedia.

The Bugatti Chiron is a mid-engined, two-seater Sports Car, designed and developed by the Volkswagen Group as the successor to the Bugatti Veyron. The Bugatti Chiron was first revealed at the Geneva Motor Show on 1 March 2016.

The car is named in honor of the Monegasque driver, Louis Chiron.

The main carry-over piece will be the Eight-Litre W16 Quad-Turbo-Charged Engine, though it is heavily updated. Direct Injection will be added and two of the four Turbos will be electronically driven to eliminate Turbo Lag.

The Bugatti Chiron has 1,103 kW (1,479 bhp) of power and 1,600 N·m (1,180 lb·ft) of torque, starting from 2,000 rpm. Like its predecessor, the Bugatti Veyron, it will have a Carbon Fibre Body Structure, Independent Suspension and 4WD System.

The Chiron will accelerate from 0–100 km/h (62mph) in under 2.5 seconds, 0-200 km/h (124mph) in less than 6.5 seconds and 0-300 km/h (186mph) below 13.6 seconds. The Chiron's top speed is limited to 420 km/h (260 mph) for safety reasons.

At full speed, the 100-Litre Fuel Tank would be empty in 8 minutes. i.e. 190 l/100 km or 4.5 kg CO2/km.

Five Hundred Units are to be produced and 120 Orders have already been placed. The Chiron will be available towards the end of 2016 with a cost of €2.4 million (circa £1.9 million, or US $2.66 million).
