The official successor of the iconic Bugatti Veyron, the Chiron, is returning in its first spy shots, a few weeks after its online leak.
Development on the Bugatti Chiron is far more advanced than we initially believed but between a prototype and a final production version there is a huge gap because, remember, this has to reclaim its crown as the fastest road-legal hypercar. The images posted below are showing us a camouflaged version of the exotic ride and, if its major lines are expected to make their way onto the final variant, the same cannot be said on small bits such as the lighting units, the wheels, the front and rear bumpers and so on.
Initial rumors are saying that some of the inspiration in designing the Chiron will be taken from the Vision Gran Turismo. The same 8.0 liter W16 quad turbocharged engine from the long gone Veyron will be maintained under the hood of the new hypercar as well, but this will be heavily updated in order to produce a massive 1,500 PS. This should allow the Chiron to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just a little over 2 seconds and to reach a top speed of more than 450 km/h (280 mph). The average fuel consumption of the exotic model should stand at 20L / 100km (14 mpg UK / 11.6 mpg US) and, when driven at top speed, it will empty its tank in 10 minutes and destroy its tires in 15.
