Bugatti Chiron to reach 450 km/h image

The successor of the Bugatti Veyron is just around the corner and it is currently known as the Chiron.

However, things may change when it will be finally unveiled but this will take some time, despite this has been in development over the past 4 years. According to the guys from Automobile Magazine, the new Bugatti Chiron will be based on the same carbon fiber architecture as the current Veyron but more than 90 percent of the parts will either be revised or brand new. The new ones will be lighter and stronger and this will assure it some significant weight loss compared to the Veyron.

The cabin of the upcoming megacar will be more spacious than the one of its predecessor. Visibility will be improved and the driving position will be revised. The most important part of the exotic vehicle will be found under its hood where Bugatti is said to adopt the same 8.0 liter W16 quad turbocharged engine, from the Veyron. Boost will be increased and at least two turbos will be electrically driven. These changes should allow the engine to produce a total output of 1,500 HP (1,103 kW), which will allow the megacar to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just a little over 2 seconds. AWD will be offered, along with a revised seven-speed dual clutch transmission. The top speed will stand at 450 km/h (280 mph).
