This is it, folks. Just as the record-breaking Bugatti Veyron Super Sport was soon followed by a world-record release, the Chiron “Longtail” is evolving to become the Super Sport 300+. Like the prototype before it, the production car will have the menacing body with the exposed carbon fiber and orange stripes that match the Veyron SS WRE. If you don't like them, the talented people from Molsheim will happily use a shade.
By mirroring the prototype and Centodieci, the Chiron Super Sport 300+ will use an evolution of the quad-turbo 8.0-liter W16 engine out to an outrageous 1,578 horsepower. You will not find the roll cage and range of computers and time equipment in the running model, as the 30 vehicles planned for production will do without additional hardware. Instead, Bugatti will reset the passenger seat prototype missing.
While the car driven by Andy Wallace sat closer to the road – the Chiron Super Sport 300+ drives 304.77 mph driven on the Volkswagen Group test track in Germany , and will take a standard ride height to make it easier to live on normal roads. Perhaps the most important change is the implementation of a speed limiter, with Bugatti President Stephan Winkelmann telling Motor1.com that customer-specific cars will top 440 km / h.
Interesting, Top Gear has the good authority that buyers will be able to lay the roll cage and ditch the speed limiter to try to recreate the Longtail's performance. Where could an owner possibly hit 304,773 mph (490,484 km / h) without being thrown into jail immediately? At the same Ehra-Lessien. Yes, Bugatti will give customers access to the course where there is an 8.7 kilometer stretch. Talk about an interesting event ability.
It will cost you 3.5 million euros (almost $ 3.9 million at current exchange rates) to gain access to VW group evidence in Lower Saxony and Bugatti will throw in the car for free. Production starts 2021.
