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.

Dell Gaming Car pack brings Bugatti Chiron to Forza Motorsport 7

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.

Bugatti offers 15-year warranty as part of its Veyron Loyalty Maintenance Program

There’s great news for Bugatti Veyron owners as the automaker recently introduced the Loyalty Maintenance Program to help customers maintain the condition of their cars and to allow them to keep their vehicles in mint condition.

The Loyalty Maintenance Program is actually part of the company’s Extended Warranty and Extended Warranty Plus programs, which can last for as long as 15 years. Owning a Bugatti Veyron can be very expensive; the maintenance costs alone are already high. The brand hopes that this program will help reduce operating costs for owners.

Franco Utzeri, head of Bugatti Certified and Financial Services, says that the Bugatti Customer Service is definitely more than just a seal of approval, making a difference for Veyron owners. It includes warranty, individual support, and a combination of a confirmed vehicle history. The automaker’s goal is also to give their customers a unique experience and 360 degree ownership that no other automaker currently offers.

In the 1990s, one of the most well-known supercars was the Bugatti EB 110. While its popularity has diminished with the passing of time, it has recently gotten some press at a few auctions and quickly got back to the spotlight.

Now, Casil Motors is planning a revival of sorts for the said model with its SP-110 Edonis Fenice. They gave it a new body and some upgraded mechanicals, together with some of the EB 110’s remaining carbon fiber monocoques. The firm will only produce a total of 15 units.

Under the hood of the SP-110 Edonis Fenice is still the same V12 engine from the EB 110. But instead, it has 3.8 liters with two turbos, which is larger than the original model that only had a quad-turbo 3.5 liter unit. The old model was able to bring out a total of 550 horsepower (410 kilowatts) with the smaller engine in stock, while the new one now produces as much as 720 horsepower (537 kilowatts).

Supercar makers such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Lotus, at some point, have already stated that they would produce SUVs. While McLaren has not joined the bandwagon, it likely won’t be holding out for long if it wants to make loads of money like the rest of them. But there is another automaker that has not been mentioned a lot in this discussion of SUVs, and that is Bugatti.

For the longest time, Bugatti denied the idea of creating both a sedan and an SUV. One reason is that it is difficult to imagine an SUV with the same performance DNA found in models like the Veyron and Chiron. However, there is one artist that threw caution to the wind and imagined a Bugatti SUV that bears some Chiron design elements. Aksyonov Nikita is that artist. His rendering of the French performance SUV looks amazing and actually looks ready for the year 2020.

These photos were first published by the artist on his Behance page, before it circulated around the internet. He is also known for rendering a lot of other cool cars like a Porsche 918 Spyder among others.

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.

Are you a hypercar enthusiast? If you are, then this story might catch your attention. If you have unlimited cash to burn, one of the most expensive cars you could bring home is a Bugatti Veyron. Or the Bugatti Chiron might be more to your liking. But don’t forget that there is also the extremely rare Vision GT.

Because of how incredible this hypercar is, we just have to show you a video of its delivery to a collector based in Los Angeles. This one-off Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo first made its appearance in 2015. From looking at its design, you would be able to tell that it got some of its inspiration from the Bugatti Type 57G, which is a two-time Le Mans 24 Hour winner. Under the hood of this super rare model is a W16 engine that produces an impressive 1,650 horsepower (1,230 kilowatts) and 1,165 pound-feet (1,230 kilowatts) of torque.

The very first owner of this Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo was Saudi Arabian Prince Badr bin Saud. He then sold it to the new owner who is based in LA. As you heard in the video, this is the one and only Bugatti Vision GT that has reached the US soil, and it will be sitting in its new owner’s garage alongside a Porsche P1, Ferrari LaFerrari and a one-of-twenty Lamborghini Centenario. Undeniably, the Vision GT comes with stunning bodywork and a dramatic engine, as well as a few other outstanding features to take note of.

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.

Around a year and a half ago, a certain Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse (2014 model year) wrapped in a Transformers-themed finish was flagged for sale in California. Back then, the asking price for this one-off Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse was $2.1 million. Now, the same Autobot-marked Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse is being sold by iLusson, a dealership that sells hypercars in Orange County, California.

While this is the very same Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse that was offered for sale in February 2016, it wasn’t clear whether it changed hands by then. It might have been or might have not been sold at the time, when this Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse still had 352 miles (568 km) on its odometer. What is clear is that since that time, this Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse was only driven for just a further 113 miles (180 km), as its odometer indicates it has already reached 465 miles (748 km). This added distance, however, is negligible, and that means this Transformers-themed Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse remains fairly new.

Its new asking price has dropped by around $200,000, as this one-off Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse – with Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of VF9SV25265M795079 -- is being sold by iLusso at just $1,899,000. That is still a lot of money to shed to purchase this Bugatti creation, but for a super-rich kid who is also a big fan of the Transformer’s Autobots, this example of the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse could be a great buy.

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.

Potential customers in Hamburg, Germany who want to a good look at one of Bugatti’s prized offerings could now do so at the French super sports car brand’s latest showroom in the city. Bugatti Hamburg is now opened with a new showroom design and with a new Bugatti Chiron in tow.

Located at 222 Weg beim Jager or just near the Hamburg airport, Bugatti Hamburg is an exclusive outlet that the super sports car maker has established along with sales partner, Kamps in Hamburg GmbH & Co. KG. Hamburg Bugatti is the carmaker’s fourth dealership in Germany featuring the new showroom design and the 12th in Europe. It is one of Bugatti’s 34 dealerships in 17 countries around the world. Kamps in Hamburg GmbH has been an official dealer partner of Bugatti since 2009.

While Bugatti Hamburg only has a floor space of almost 100 square meters, the vehicle in display is certainly not ordinary. A brand new Bugatti Chiron in silver finish is the main attraction of the Hamburg showroom, and is currently the centerpiece of the luxury brand’s product offensive. Aside from the Chiron display, the new Bugatti Hamburg showroom also features a heritage section dedicated to the Bugatti brand values of “Art, Forme, Technique” with three wall-mounted steles expressing each of them.

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.

You have probably heard of the name Stephan Winkelmann, more so if you’re in the automotive industry. He was once the big boss of Lamborghini for 10 years, until first quarter of last year when he became head of Audi Sport. Now, he is switching teams again to move to Bugatti, as he replaces Wolfgang Durheimer as President. But this move still puts him within the VW Group.

The 52-year-old executive spent most of his time in the industry with Lamborghini, acting as the CEO of the Italian supercar marque from 2005 to 2016. And this year, he will be replacing Bugatti’s former CEO, the 59-year-old Durheimer after a quick year with Audi Sport. Though Durheimer wanted to leave the company before the end of the year, he was convinced to stay for the launch of the upcoming Continental GTC, that is the convertible version of the GT. Therefore, he will still be chairman of Bentley for the time being.

Back in the day when Winkelmann was in Lamborghini, he was able to help the brand triple its number of dealerships.

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.
