New Bugatti Chiron has a top speed of 463 km/h


The successor of the Bugatti Veyron does a stab at the title ‘ fastest production car in the world ‘ and as it seems the hypercar with the name Chiron will actually get that predicate. The first test simulations of Bugatti came at a top speed of as many as 463 km/h! That posts the German magazine Auto Motor und Sport.

But the question is whether that is actually the top speed. The limit has to do with the tires. No supplier provides a set of tires that is able to offer such speed with comfort and a normal common mileage. For the Veyron was a separate tire developed by Michelin. With the black footwear, that costs € 30.250,-per set (excluding installation), could be done six runs of twenty six seconds at a speed of 435 km/h, before they exploded.

Two seconds

Bugatti assembles in the Chiron a W16 engine with sixteen cylinders. However, the power source is changed and is now getting support of an electric motor to achieve the expected power of 1500 HP and the limited torque of about 1500 Nm. With the extreme motor output, the Bugatti-rider can realize an acceleration from 0-100 km/h in two seconds.

Bugatti Chiron will introduce the Chiron next year. Despite that the hypercar is still in development, there’s no price available yet and the presentation is delayed a year, Bugatti has already received the first orders for the limited Bugatti sports car.

About Frank Scheers

Mijn geboortestad Amsterdam is een prachtig uitgangspunt voor journalistiek. Amsterdam staat voor vrijheid van meningsuiting en tolerantie. Als journalist wil ik mij vrij en zonder beperkingen kunnen uiten over hetgeen zich in Amsterdam afspeelt, maar ook in de rest van de wereld. Ik schrijf zoveel mogelijk mijn eigen content, maar scan ook de rest van de wereld af naar opvallend nieuws. Dit nieuws hoeft niet altijd breaking news te zijn. Dit kan heel interessant nieuws zijn dat even belangrijk is als breaking news, maar iets minder bekend is, maar net zo belangrijk kan zijn voor de opinievorming. Naast nieuws uit Amsterdam en wereldnieuws richt ik mij ook op fraaie artikelen over politiek, mode, luxe artikelen, gezondheid, het milieu, entertainment, life style, business, onderwijs, shopping, gastronomie, reizen et cetera. Amsterdam Today is een actief online news magazine en wij brengen artikelen in het Nederlands en in het Engels. Belangrijk om te noemen is dat Amsterdam Today zich bezig houdt met Immersive Journalism. Dat wil zeggen dat wij fascinerend nieuws brengen in combinatie met virtual reality technieken.

As a journalist, I can express freely and without restrictions on what is happening in Amsterdam, but also in the rest of the world. I write my own content as much as possible, but also scan the rest of the globe for striking news. This news doesn't always have to be breaking news. This can be very interesting news that is as important as breaking news, but slightly less known and just as important to the way people form their opinions. In addition to news from Amsterdam and the world news I also write about articles on politics, fashion, luxury, health, environment, entertainment, life style, business, education, shopping, wining and dining, travel and so on.
