|The limit on the top speed is designed to keep the tires from shredding into dust, but unrestricted the Chiron could go as fast as 461 km/h (287 mph). The price for the Bugatti Chiron starts at a trifling 2.4 million Euro.|
|Its W16 engine is based on its Veyron predecessor, but it comes with new internals. Its four turbochargers are each 30 percent larger, and work in two stages: two spool up when the Chiron launches, and the other two only kick in above 3,800 rpm.|
All pieces are cooled by some 10 radiators, though brake cooling is helped in part a hydraulic flap by the front axle, which also lowers drag. There’s also a four-position spoiler out back which can act as an airbrake during deceleration; and an adaptive suspension system to raise or lower the car for optimal aerodynamics.
Louis Chiron was a French racer that had the highest number of podiums with Bugatti cars, hence the hommage.
