Bugatti Chiron to get 500 km/h speedometer image

The Bugatti Veyron successor, the so-called Chiron, is expected to get a new speedometer which will show a top speed of 500 km/h.

In case you were wondering what happened to the official successor of the Bugatti Veyron, don’t worry, because everything is still in the graphics and every once in a while, we get a bone thrown in a report. According to Automobile Magazine, the so-called Bugatti Chiron will be coming with at least two electrically powered turbochargers in order to develop more power and this will be channeled to the both axles thanks to the modified dual-clutch seven-speed automatic transmission.

Rumor has it that the Chiron will retain the 8.0 liter quad turbo engine, but its output will be bumped from the 1,200 HP (882 kW) of the Super Sport to approximately 1,500 HP (1,103 kW) and a peak torque of 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft) of torque. These figures will transform the Chiron into the fastest production car in the world, once again, and this is rumored to go all the way up to 463,5 km/h (288 mph). From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the hypercar will need less than 2.5 seconds and its speedometer will indicate 500 km/h (310,7 mph). Rumor has it that this will be introduced sometimes in 2016.
