The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport has completed the high-speed tests on the Ehra-Lessien circuit owned by the Volkswagen concern. In the first phase, Bugatti ran road tests in closed traffic conditions at speeds of up to 380 km / h, but to overcome 400 km / h, they went on the Ehra-Lessien circuit. Chiron Super Sport is a more luxurious variant of the Chiron Super Sport 300+, and it has been optimized to allow the driver to drive without emotions at exceptionally high speeds.
In this direction, Bugatti has equipped the prototype with over 100 additional sensors to monitor various parameters carefully, from the temperature and pressure of the outside air, to the temperatures reached by the flue gases.
The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport's body is similar to that of the Chiron Super Sport 300+, in that it has an extended rear console, a revised front for extra aerodynamic pressure, a new front splitter, a set of rims with a special design and a series of circular air slots integrated into the front wings.
All of the above have a well-defined role from an aerodynamic point of view and aim to reduce the forward resistance of the model and make it stick to the road at speeds at which aircraft would have already taken off.
One of the essential changes made by Bugatti for the Chiron Super Sport model involves a transmission with extra ratios. On the other hand, the W16 quad-turbo engine, with a displacement of 8.0 litres, remained unchanged, and it still offers 1600 hp and 1600 Nm.
In 2019, Bugatti managed to set a world speed record with the Chiron Super Sport 300+. It managed to reach a speed of 490.48 km / h (304.77 mph), hence its 300+ name.
Bugatti will build only 30 units of the Chiron Super Sport 300+ and 60 units of the Chiron Super Sport. @via Bugatti.
