The first image of Veyron’s replacement, the upcoming Bugatti Chiron, has surfaced onto the web.
It may be blurry and darkened but since it will be transformed into the most fastest ever production vehicle, it couldn’t have been left in the shadows. We are talking about the upcoming Bugatti Chiron, which will have the tough job of replacing the iconic Veyron. The hypercar, or megacar, depending on its final output, has been spotted recently at an airport in Los Angeles and considering the fact that the 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance will happen in just a few days over there, chances are we will see it for the very first time, in a public event.
We cannot tell you a lot on its design because it is heavily disguised but according to recent reports, the Chiron will be maintaining the 8.0 liter quad turbocharged W16 engine from the Veyron, which will be significantly updated. Rumor has it that this will be producing a total output of 1,500 HP (1,103 kW), and it will have a peak torque of 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft), which will allow it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2 seconds. A top speed of 463 km/h (288 mph) is expected which will be making it faster than the Veyron SS and also faster than its main competitor, the Koenigsegg One:1. Additional details on the Chiron (name not confirmed yet), are limited at this point.
