When the Bugatti Chiron was presented at the last Geneva motor show promised a maximum speed of 420 km/h. It was surprising to many, since the Bugatti Veyron surpassed this speed when he set a world record. The fact is that Chiron is limited electronically and the mark was kept of what was capable of the supercar. Although we have now been able to know that deslimitado could reach 458 km/h.
Willi Netuschil, chief engineer of Bugatti, warned of the risks that has the roll so fast. “You have to remember how big is the stopping distance required at these levels”, said the manager. This is the reason why the brand does not plan to unleash by Chiron, because there are very few places where you could reach that speed safely. Of course, none of them are in the public thoroughfare, where many customers will use their supercars.
Netuschil mentioned the well-known track of the Volkswagen Group, the facilities Ehra-Lessien that have a line of 9 kilometers. In that place, and in the year 2010, the Veyron Super Sport reached up to 434,29 km/h, but then came the Hennessey Venom GT with its 435,31 km/h for destronarle. Although there is an explicit intention of the mark in back to beat the record, it is something that will surely look at inside of a time.
Will you be able to the Bugatti Chiron actually arriving at the 458 km/h? This is a question that for the moment we will continue having. Arguments not lacking, with the engine W16 of 8.0 liters and four turbos. Thanks to a power of 1.500 CV and 1,600 Nm couple announces an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds. It also makes the 0 to 200 km/h in less than 6.5 seconds and the 0 to 300 km/h in less 13.6 seconds, so we have no doubt of your potential.
