There’s a new Chiron coming, of which we got some deets; Bugatti will raise the price, with the old one’s cost to beat. Ferrari, McLaren, and Porsche raised the hypercar status, which Bugatti now has to meet. Get your wallet out and get on your feet, because the Chiron is going elite.
Car Magazine has just dropped some details on Bugatti’s upcoming super-hypa-meger car, which quite frankly makes me feel like everything I do in life is pointless and I will never be successful.
The reported price tag on the new one sure is intimidating: $2.5 million, apparently. For the sake of comparison, the last Bugatti Veyron we tested came in at $2.35 million. It’s practically a car for poors compared to the Chiron!
The magazine is reporting that Bugatti is going to go all out in every money-bleeding way to deliver 500 statistics-shattering Chiron models to anybody with a minimum of three off-shore accounts. That’s 50 more models than they delivered with the Veyron, and that’s just where the number game begins.
You see, Bugatti wouldn’t just deliver you the ugliest technological accomplishment of the decade - they at least want to make sure it looks good on paper. Luckily for you, Mr./Mrs. Hip Hop breakout sensation of the next 36 hours, there are plenty of numbers for you to awkwardly fit into the rhymes that you spit.
The new Chiron will supposedly feature a quad-turbo 8.0 liter W16 engine, with something like 1,480 bhp, 1,106 lb-ft of torque, and a projected top speed of 288 mph, hitting 62 mph in just 2.3 seconds.
For a quick comparison, since I know your current Bugatti never hit 80 mph again after you filmed that one bumpin’ music video, the Veyron boasted just over 1,000 bhp, 922 lb-ft of torque, and hit 62 somewhere around 3 seconds. That was at a base price of the Kardashian’s dinnerware, or $1,250,000 million.
The Chiron laughs at your Veyron. The Chiron battle-cries “It’s on!” The Chiron has decided that the lowest amount it will grant you it’s servitude as the must have R&B album cover of the decade is like $2,500,000 dollars, yo.
Why buy a Bugatti and Lamborghini, when you can just have a newer Bugatti that gets you to 62 mph at about $143,000 a decisecond? Bugatti is proud to announce they already have buyers in the double-digits! It’s already a hit!
Deliveries should roll out in two batches, which will then be followed by bigger, better, faster, uglier, statistic-er special editions surfing a pond near you sometime in the next ten to twenty years.
The Bugatti Chiron, riding on the heels of The Prancing Horse, just like the mythological creature it’s named for.
The Bugatti Chiron, where everybody involved loses at least $2,000,000 and the only comfort is having the go-to favorite car for high-schoolers everywhere.
