Extreme version of Bugatti Chiron might be unveiled at 2019 Geneva Motor Show, says report

When Bugatti took the veil off the Chiron in 2016, it was well expected that the French carmaker would create versions of the sports car. Then, the carmaker unveiled the track-focused Bugatti Chiron Sport at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2018. But it seems Bugatti isn't finished yet, as it is reported to be planning to reveal an extreme version of the Chiron at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.

According to our sources, Bugatti has plans to build an extreme version of the Chiron that even surpasses the Divo. It seems that a number of VIP customers were given the privilege of getting a good glimpse of the new upcoming version of the Chiron through sketches shown at the unveiling of the Bugatti Divo at Château Saint-Jean. As report, Bugatti described this new extreme version as “a beauty of speed” as well as a “ground-to-ground Missile”.

Chiron’s predecessor, the Bugatti Veyron was gifted with an extreme version that held the record for being the fastest street-legal car for more than seven years – the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport. This version features an engine that can deliver 1,200 PS (1,184 hp or 883 kW) of max output and 1,106 lb.-ft. (1,500 Nm) of peak torque. It managed to achieve a top speed of 267.856 mph (431.072 km/h) to set a new record, only to be broken seven years later.

This Bugatti Chiron 4x4 rendering is a suitable companion for off-road adventures

Nobody would dare take a Bugatti Chiron to the off-road. After all, the power, dynamics and capabilities of the Chiron are designed to challenge the road and even the track, but not the off- road. If a driver tries to drive a Chiron to an off-road path, he or she should be ready to shell out a large amount of money to repair the possible damages that the hypercar may incur during such adventure. In short, the Chiron is ill-equipped to tackle the off-road.

Nevertheless, a well-equipped Bugatti Chiron might be able to take on the off-road challenge. That would be too much to ask, as Bugatti has built itself as a creator of super-fast cars. A Bugatti sports utility vehicle is currently being considered at the carmaker, but transforming the Chiron into an off-road monster is something the carmaker would leave to other hands. Taking that insurmountable task – at least in a rendering is automotive graphic artist Rain Prisk, and the result of his efforts is the Bugatti Chiron 4X4.

Rain Prisk has been rendering images of existing cars and transforming them into something carmakers wouldn’t even think of. Some of this works include a pickup truck version of a Range Rover, a 2005 Ford GT Raptor, and shooting brake version of the Bugatti Divo. His latest work is the Bugatti Chiron 4X4, which is menacingly well-equipped to call the off-road trail its second home.

Bugatti’s telemetry tech remotely monitors your Chiron anywhere in the world

Back in 2004, Bugatti first introduced to us the telemetry system on its road-going production model. This tech debuted with the Veyron, making it the very first in the industry to utilize this kind of system. Now, if you own a Chiron, then you can also benefit from this. So in case you get a flat tire or any such issue, you will be alerted by Bugatti’s “flying doctors” about the specific problem you are currently having in real time.

The telemetry system, if you didn’t know, got its inspiration from Formula 1 and DTM race cars. It relies mostly on mobile radio to monitor the condition of a Veyron and Chiron, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. And the only time that telemetry won’t be able to monitor your car is when there is no mobile phone network coverage. Around 14 years after this technology was introduced, it has been greatly improved, and now can monitor 10,000 signals in the case of the more high tech Bugatti Chiron.

What the telemetry focuses on in each of these cars would be the key components such as the 8.0 liter quad turbo engine, the seven speed dual clutch automatic gearbox, and even hardware such as the infotainment system and air conditioning. As mentioned earlier, Bugatti has three “flying doctors” that are in charge of the Chirons and Veyrons. One of them is focused on Europe and Russia, the other one in Middle East and Asia Pacific, and one is in charge of North America.

Bugatti unveils fully dressed Chiron Sport at 2018 Geneva Motor Show

The Bugatti Chiron is probably one of the sportiest cars in the planet, thanks to its overwhelming power output of 1,500 hp and its hypercar design. If there is one car who could claim to be sportier than the Chiron, it is another creation from the French manufacturer – the new Bugatti Chiron Sport.

Bugatti’s formula for creating a sportier version of the Chiron doesn’t entail any increase or boost in power output or torque. The French high-performance carmaker didn’t need to tinker with the quad-turbo, 8.0-liter W16 engine to come up with the Chiron Sport. This means that power ratings for the Chiron Sport remain at 1,500 hp of max output and 1,180 lb.-ft. (1,600 Nm) of peak torque as transmitted to all wheels. Likewise, this means that Chiron Sport could complete a sprint from zero to 60 mph in just 2.4 seconds, and achieve a top speed of up to 260 mph (420 km/h) – the same as the Chiron.

Aside from retaining the superb power and performance of the Chiron, the new Chiron Sport also features the same ease and convenience of driving. Instead of focusing on these elements, Bugatti decided to dramatically improve the handling of the new Chiron Sport and enhance its lateral dynamics on winding roads. To achieve this goal, the new Chiron Sport is fitted with a dynamic handling package and has been made lighter than the original model.

Turn 10 Studios, the developer of Forza Motorsport 7, has just released this month’s collection of downloadable cars for the gamers. This time, it is very different from last month’s downloadable batch that included largely classic vehicles. Because for the month of February, they decided to put emphasis on the modern performance that includes bringing the Bugatti Chiron to the game.

We actually find it very strange that the Forza Motorsport 7’s extensive lineup, with over 700 vehicles, lacks the Chiron, which limits gamers to experience the top batch of hypercars. The Bugatti Chiron here has an 8.0 liter quad turbocharged W16 that enables it to produce 1,479 horsepower (1,102 kilowatts) and 1,190 pound-feet (1,599 Newton metres) of torque.

In fact, it will only take the coupe around 2.5 seconds to hit 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) before hitting the limited top speed of 261 miles per hour (420 kilometers per hour). In real life, not a lot of people get the chance to experience a car this quick, but now, Forza players have the opportunity to enjoy how the Bugatti performs on a track, plus they do not have to worry about totally wrecking the car.

It hasn’t been that long since Bugatti introduced the Chiron to the market. In fact, it has only been a little over a year since production of the said model began in late 2016. And already, one owner is already planning to sell his hypercar. So for those of you who are interested, expect to see this 1,479 horsepower (1,102 kilowatt) Chiron at the upcoming RM Sotheby’s Paris auction next year.

This particular model was one of the first 20 Chirons to be delivered to their first owner, when it was brought to him during the second quarter of 2017 as one of the 18 examples delivered. Having said that, this car is pretty much brand new.

It has only been driven less than 621 miles (1,000 kilometers), and half of that number comes from test drives by the manufacturer. The auction house estimates that this car could sell for about 3.2 million to 3.6 million euros ($3.8 to $4.3 million). While that is quite a huge increase over the $3 million MSRP, it’s an awesome opportunity for any collector of rare models.

French high-performance car maker Bugatti Automobiles commenced deliveries of its 1,500-hp Bugatti Chiron super sports car in March 2017. While the demand for the Chiron hypercar is high, its production nature limits the number of examples assembled and delivered each year. Good news though as the company was able to reach its delivery target for 2017 – 70 examples of the Bugatti Chiron were sent to customers around the world.

Ordering and purchasing a new Bugatti Chiron is one thing, while getting to drive it is another. Wolfgang Durheimer, President of Bugatti Automobiles, remarked that the French carmaker is aiming to keep the waiting times for the customers as short as possible. So far, only 70 customers who ordered the Chiron have received their supercars.

When Bugatti commenced delivery of the Chiron in March 2017, the carmaker has already taken more than 200 orders. As of December 2017, the orders have ballooned to more than 300 examples. Bugatti revealed that 43 percent of orders were from customers in Europe while 26 percent were from North America, which includes the United States and Canada. Around 23 percent of the orders were from the Middle East while the remaining 8 percent were from the Asia-Pacific region.

One of the best feelings a person would experience is driving a brand new car that came straight from the dealership, especially if its something like a Bugatti Chiron that you probably have worked hard for. Also, we are all aware that any car depreciates the moment we take it out for a ride - but not this one.

Finally, the very first “usedBugatti Chiron in the UK has reached the market, and it looks like the previous owner is not going to lose money. But instead, he will earn another £1M ($1.32M) since he first purchased it. The car is currently listed at a specialist supercar dealer Romans International in Surrey, UK.

Today, the black car, which was one of the very first examples delivered in the UK, has a market value of £3.6M ($4.78M). That is £1.1M more than its original £2.5M tag price when it first came out. How lucky is the owner considering that this car has already been used. This example is also one of just 500 examples built for the Bugatti’s whole 10 year lifespan.

With so many rims available in the market today, it’s quite the challenge to tell which one would look best on your car. How much more if you plan to match them to a Bugatti Chiron? Many owners of these 1500 hp monsters would usually prefer the manufacturer-supplied wheels over those that come from the aftermarket specialists. To some, the many choices out there can make the task overwhelming.

It’s good to know there exists a handful of Bugatti Chiron owners who are brave enough to take the less traveled road. Take for example, the owner of this Bugatti who decided to find a new set of Forgiato Tecnica rims instead of settling for the Chiron’s stock alloy wheels.

We have no way of knowing what the size of these wheels really are, but let’s just say they fit those tires that already came with the Chiron from scratch. The stock Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires are made especially for the Chiron’s powerful road potentials so keeping it stable under any road condition is imperative to its performance. In case the owner preferred another set of high performance tires, then we have to assume these must be the better ones. The stock comes in the sizes of 11x20 for the front and 14x21 for the rear.

Bugatti is no longer the automaker that carries the fastest street legal production model after the Chiron was overtaken by no other than the Koenigsegg Agera RS. The new champion posted an average speed of 277.9 miles per hour (444.6 kilometers per hour) after doing two runs going in opposite directions as part of the Guinness’ requirements. It was Niklas Lilja, Koenigsegg’s factory driver, who was behind the Agera’s wheel when he broke the record at Pahrump, Nevada. All the figures were recorded and verified by Racelogic during the run last Saturday.

A couple of months ago, Koenigsegg was already talking about taking the crown from the Bugatti, which had Chiron’s 0-240-0 record. Drive Tribe had provided some of the details of the record-breaking feat. It reported that Agera RS was in Nevada, where it was put through a number of tests on a closed section of a road somewhere between Las Vegas and Pahrump. To make this possible, the Swedish automaker had to get permission from the Nevada Department of Transportation so they could close the particular road for the high-speed run.

In 2010, an unrestricted Bugatti Veyron Super Sport made a record of 267.81 miles per hour (431 kilometers per hour) at Volkswagen Group’s Ehra-Lessien test track. It was driven by Pierre Henri Raphanel, who was the automaker’s official test driver. It wasn’t long after that moment that a road-legal production model, which was the Veyron Super Sport World Record Edition, was launched. However, it had an electronic top speed limiter that lets it do just up to 258 miles per hour (145 kph) to preserve the integrity of the tires.

Have you ever wondered what you can you buy with $9,365 in your pocket? Well, you have quite a lot of options. In fact, you can even purchase a used vehicle and perhaps modify it to build a super fast car. On the other hand, you can get this scale model of the Bugatti Chiron’s powertrain.

This 1:4 scale model of Chiron’s 8.0 liter quad-turbocharged W16 engine and seven-speed dual clutch transmission is created and built by Amalgam. The real powertrain, on the other hand, measures 18 inches long and nine inches high.

You are probably wondering what makes it so expensive. Well, Amalgam claims that they took 2500 hours just to design everything, and that does not even include building it. Building each example took them around 220 hours using a total of 1,040 individual pieces.

It can be recalled that the 32-year old football champ gifted himself with his very own Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse after winning the UEFA Euro Cup in 2016. Fast forward to the present, Cristiano Ronaldo has recently showed off his brand new Bugatti Chiron hypercar after Real Madrid’s win over Borussia Dortmund. Seen from his official Instagram account, the football superstar posted a video while taking his son for a ride on board this highly exotic machine.

While the video was captured just as the two were leaving the driveway, another post shows a picture of the hypercar still parked in front of the building. The video, with a caption that reads; “new animal in the building Bugatti Chiron” has currently earned over 16 million views after it was posted only four days ago.

Ronaldo spent nearly 2.4 million euros just to get his hands on the new 1,500hp, 1,180lb-ft Chiron, a limited production hypercar with only 500 units. That’s about 3 million USD, equivalent to about £1.85 million. Either way, the footballer’s hypercar features a two-tone grey black finish, thus, showing his taste is more subdued unlike the first Chiron that came to the US dressed up in a yellow and black combo.

We first saw the Galibier Concept eight years ago when Bugatti unveiled it. But today, it seems like they still have not given up on the development of an ultra-luxury sedan.

Wolfgang Durheimer, president of Bugatti, said in an interview with Automotive News that the four-door model "is not dead". Though he did not elaborate on this statement, he said that by 2018, its future will be determined by the Volkswagen Group executives.

If the automaker's plan pushes through, we can expect to see this model by 2024, and this model may actually replace the current Chiron, considering what Durheimer said will be a "one-model brand" for the future.

There is no disputing that the Bugatti Chiron is a beautiful monster. Much-awaited and much-hyped, this hypercar was described by Bugatti as the most powerful, fastest, most luxurious and most exclusive production super sports car in the world, beating its likewise monstrous stable mate, the Bugatti Veyron. However, there is also one aspect that the Chiron is better at than the Veyron 16.4 – its fuel economy.

Yes, while the Chiron is over 50 percent more powerful than the Veyron -- their quad-turbo, 8.0-liter W16 engine producing outputs of 1,500 hp and 987 hp respectively, it nonetheless travels more miles per gallon on the combined cycle. That means the Chiron essentially consumes less fuel when on the go. Letting numbers do the talking, the Bugatti Chiron has been rated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to deliver 11 mpg on the combined cycle. This means that on the combined cycle, the Chiron has a better fuel economy than the Veyron, which is rated at 10 mpg.

In terms of highway fuel economy, the Veyron is slightly better than the Chiron. A gallon of fuel allows the Veyron to travel 15 miles and the Chiron for 14 miles – on the highway. On the other hand, the Chiron has better fuel economy on the city than the Veyron. The Chiron has been EPA-rated to return 9 mpg on the city, while the Veyron was estimated to be able to travel 8 miles on a gallon of fuel.

Bugatti Chiron is currently limited to a top speed of 261 miles per hour (420 kilometers per hour), which is more than impressive for car enthusiasts. That’s even faster than the Veyron Super Sport World Record Edition (WRE) by 3 miles per hour. But what a lot of people don’t know is that the Chiron can actually do better.

Andy Wallace, the company’s test driver, told Popular Mechanics that an unrestricted Chiron can actually go a little further than 280 miles per hour (450 kilometers per hour). He pointed out that its current production tires are holding it back from its true potential. He said that the Michelin engineers will be able to prove that the Bugatti will break the record for fastest production car ever made, between now and sometime next year.

Back in 2010, the unrestricted Veyron Super Sport was able to hit 268 miles per hour (431 kilometers per hour) at Volkswagen’s 13-mile Ehra-Lessien test track. It’s likely that the Bugatti Chiron will make its attempt here as well. After seven years, it is still the Veyron SS that holds the record in the Guinness World Records book.

It seems insurance companies in the United States know how to ruin the Bugatti Chiron. Thankfully though, it is quite easy to restore the Chiron back to its original form, sans the nuisance feature.

Bugatti describes the Chiron as the most powerful, fastest, most luxurious as well as the most exclusive production super sports car in the world. However, its performance and luxury levels aren’t the only things that makes the Chiron stand out from rest. After all, the new Chiron is a beautifully crafted creation that is a product of excellent design. Its inherent beauty, however, could be ruined by installing a supposed protection feature which design doesn’t fit the elegant dynamic appearance of the Chiron.

We are referring to the two bumper protecting pads installed on the rear end of the Chiron. They could be best described as unsightly tumors, which do serve a function but fail to justify their existence. These pads are meant to protect the bumper from low-speed fender benders; although it seems that their design couldn’t even minimize body damage from rear-end collisions. According to Jalopnik, these two bumper protecting pads are even large enough to serve as seats for tailgating.

A visit to Auto Serendin in Stuttgart Germany may be a matter of choice, but to some, having to wait another year for a brand new Bugatti Chiron is a test for patience. Or maybe not. Okay, so the German auto dealer’s asking price comes between $3.2 million to 3.8 million USD. That’s about 3.57 million euros compared to Bugatti’s 2.4-million-euro original price tag. What’s the deal?

Well, if you order this new Chiron at this dealership, instead of waiting 2 years for the delivery, it has been reduced to 1 year. Apparently, that’s just the icing on the cake. The best part of course, is all the goodies it will be receiving courtesy of Auto Serendin.

To make it really worth the price, the German dealer will be throwing in several premium upgrades on the stock Chiron model. The optional configuration includes a €50,000 wheel set with French Racing Blue accents amounting to €7,500 plus an additional €2,500 for the diamond cut finish. Clients who want a black-painted brake calipers should be more than willing to fork out an extra €2,500 to have it done. Not bad, huh.

As if owning a Bugatti Chiron was not enough, the luxury automaker has partnered with yacht builder Palmer Johnson to release the Bugatti Niniette 66. For those who want a yacht that best complements their Chiron, this is clearly intended for you.

With a length of 66 feet, as implied by the name, maximum speed has been measured to be 44 knots. In terms of land-based transportation, this is around 50 mph.

If you’re wondering though, this is not something that both companies decided to do on the fly. This particular project had its beginnings going as far back as 2015. It was during this time that the two companies decided to come up with a product that would combine their strength in order to deliver the best on-water experience. While they did manage to do just that, one is likely to see that they were able to incorporate the 8.0-liter W16 engine of the Chiron that could deliver 1,479 hp. The Niniette 66 instead utilizes the usual MAN V8 marine engine that is capable of either 1,000 hp or 1,200 hp. Meanwhile the MJP waterjets are responsible for moving the yacht forward. However, with a draft measuring around four feet, it can travel in shallow water without any problems.

It is no surprise that the French marque came back to Geneva Motor Show this year. It means to showcase one of the first Chirons to be delivered to its fortunate owner. Bugatti’s exhibit booth will have on display the royal blue Chiron --- the Bleu Royal tinted carbon fiber with two tone combination of French Racing blue and Deep blue for its interior.

Bugatti earlier reported how Europe continues to be the company’s largest market for the new Chiron --- accounting for 37% of the 250 examples in the order list. However, the North American market is also close, claiming 30% of the total market share followed by the Middle East at 26%. The rest of the world shares the remaining 7%. At any rate, the numbers are increasing and it may take a few more years until we see another production-ready Chiron to ever come out of the Molsheim headquarters.

The 1,500hp Chiron, which takes several months to build, comes with a starting price of 2.54 million USD or 2.4 million euros. On average, the company is capable of producing at least 70 units annually. That means, the remaining 250 units will not be completed until 2020.

Bugatti is finally commencing official deliveries of its much-awaited and much-hyped hypercar – the almighty Bugatti Chiron. Soon, customers would be able to drive what Bugatti describes as the most powerful, fastest, most luxurious and most exclusive production super sports car in the world.

In fact, three examples of the Bugatti Chiron have just left the luxury sports car maker’s headquarters in Molsheim, France. These three new Chiron examples – in dark blue, light blue and silver-black exterior finishes – will soon reach their new owners in Europe and Middle East. Making the sendoff of the first official units of the Bugatti Chiron possible are around 50 of the company’s people from its production, quality assurance and logistics teams.

Another Bugatti Chiron -- also bound for delivery -- will be displayed by the French company at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show before it is shipped to its new owner. Bugatti is planning to produce up to 70 examples of the Chiron at its Molsheim atelier this year. At the official launch of the Chiron at the Geneva Motor Show, the luxury sports car maker said is planning to build and offer just 500 examples of the stunning hypercar.
