The highly anticipated successor of the Bugatti Veyron, one of the most powerful production cars in history, has been imagined by TopSpeed, with the Chiron featuring an evolutionary design.
The Volkswagen-owned Bugatti brand has been producing the Veyron in Molsheim, France since 2005 for a span of ten years, with the latest version of the model still recognized by the Guinness World Records as the fastest street-legal production car in the world, hitting a top speed of 430.9 km/h (267.7 mph). Naturally, the upcoming Chiron is going to try and best that when it finally makes its official appearance. But until that moment comes, we have a host of spy shots of the upcoming new supercar, which signals the model is slightly wider than the predecessor. But the new rendering actually depicts a narrower vehicle with the familiar radiator grille and modern, sweptback headlights. The evolutionary design of the rendering shows a very familiar profile and a massive spoiler at the back.
Judging by the numerous spy shots and the apparition of the first official teaser, we reckon the official introduction of the successor is drawing near, maybe tipped for the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. But hold off your excitement, because the model will most likely reach the first lucky garages at the end of next year at the very best and the Chiron (not even the name is official) will most likely first be previewed by a near-production concept. We do know the hypercar will have on board a hybrid powertrain that churns out 1,500 bhp (1,118 kW), with an envisioned top speed of more than 280 mph (450 km/h).
