The new Bugatti is to be called Chiron.
The french company Bugatti has confirmed the name of his next racing car that is capable of reaching 100 km/h in just 2,3 seconds, according to specialised sources.
French motor house Bugatti has recently confirmed the name of its next bullet, Chiron. The car will be named after Louis Chiron, a legendary racing driver who won an endless number of major grands prix for the brand in the 1920s and 1930s.
The introduction of this new model is expected in February during the 86th Geneva Motor Show in 2016, although some publications have leaked some pictures of this new racing car that is capable of reaching 100 km/h in just 2,3 seconds. Absolutely amazing, don’t you think?
Wolfgang Dürheimer, President of Bugatti spoke to the media recently to give some details about his new four wheeled jewel: “The development brief for the Chiron can be summarised in one sentence and is probably the shortest in the history of the automobile: we want to make the best significantly better. The Chiron will set new standards in every respect. We will continue to produce the world’s most powerful, fastest, most luxurious and most exclusive production super sports car. This is the claim of Bugatti and our customers.”
Currently, the Chiron is undergoing final testing. A number of prototypes are on the road in several continents for the fine tuning of the vehicle – right down to the last detail under a variety of road and climate conditions. No other production super sports car of this calibre will be subjected to such a stringent, comprehensive test programme.
At the same time, pre-marketing of the Chiron is now underway. Bugatti has invited selected customers in the brand’s key markets to private previews. “The feedback from our customers concerning the Chiron is outstanding,” says the Bugatti President. “Our order book is steadily filling up. More than 100 customers have already ordered the Chiron despite the fact that they have had no opportunity so far to experience the fantastic driving properties of the Chiron”. Doubtessly 2016 point to be a great year for Bugatti.
