The all-new Bugatti Chiron is faster and wilder replacement for the venerable Bugatti Veyron, has all the numbers to call it the craziest production car ever made. The price ($ 2,999,999), the acceleration, the quarter mile, the 0-186 mph, the Chiron generates statistics so bright that car watchers and power demons can experience the digital blindness watching them.
The Bugatti designers made several changes to turn the Veyron into Chiron. Unmistakably a Bugatti because of its legendary horseshoe grille, the Chiron received four-piece thinner LED headlights that serve as an intake, sending air to the front brakes. The front hood has a more angular V shape that gives the nose a more aggressive appearance. The lower intakes are also thinner than those of the Veyron, while the deck has been optimized aerodynamically. All the features of the front section have been designed to give 2018 Bugatti Chiron the widest possible appearance. I must say that the new supercar is much more threatening.
Viewed from the side, the 2018 Bugatti Chiron is indeed a significant departure from the Veyron. The first thing that catches the eye is the C-shaped curve that defines the profile. At the rear, the Chiron is actually an attenuated version of the Gran Turismo concept. Specifically designed to reduce drag and create a suction effect that pulls warm air from the engine, the rear bumper is actually a three-part intake with a large diffuser with a 1.6 meter wide taillight strip composed of 82 LEDs. The massive intake from the center of the Veyron has been replaced by a dual-pipe exhaust, while the diffuser appears to be removed from a full-fledged race car. The engine hood has also been remodeled and Bugatti has abandoned the Veyron bumps for a more aerodynamic, flying design. The Chiron also received a central flap in a nod to the iconic Type 57SC Atlantic. It is represented in the classic two-tone blue that has made Bugatti famous, the Chiron will probably be available in a wide range of colors and finishes , including a bare carbon fiber option. The Veyron was one of the most customizable supercars on the market and Chiron should at least match that.
Like most Bugatti interiors, the 2018 Bugatti Chiron cabin is a masterpiece. Just like with the Veyron, the French managed to find the perfect balance between sportiness and luxury, distinguishing Chiron from any other hypercar in this segment. There is not even an inch of plastic on the inside, each surface being carbon fiber, aluminum or covered with fine leather. The overall design is rather simple, but the organic lines give it a modern feel. While the exterior is still based on the Veyron, the interior tells a different story. Bugatti redesigned each panel and button. The wide center console of the Veyron has been replaced by a narrower unit with four horizontally oriented buttons with tiny displays. This makes the interior more spacious and is loosely based on the concept of Gran Turismo.
The instrument cluster is also new, with the smaller two being replaced by TFT displays. The one on the right displays the navigation map. The main gauge is simple and elegant, with dials with a blue background light. The speedometer operates up to 500 km / h. The two-tone steering wheel has a flat bottom, aluminum spokes and blue buttons – the latter is not offered on the Veyron. Of course, the seats are supposed to be more comfortable than any other supercar, but also provide the greatest support for spirited driving. Like any luxury car, the Chiron comes with a state-of-the-art audio system, featuring a one-carat diamond membrane on each of the four tweeters.
While this Bugatti can be a shame for many expensive and expensive limousines, it will not be able to compete with a full size sedan. However, Bugatti engineers made some improvements, achieving an extra 12 mm (0.47 inch) margin. This may not seem like much, but it will allow larger drivers to fit inside and allow customers to drive the car with a helmet. We stroll at 100 mph or fourth gear when I nail the gas. There is a whistling air as the powerful 8.0-liter 8-cylinder engine behind my shoulders takes a deep breath, and the 2018 Bugatti Chiron casts itself on the horizon. I make the first quarter
