Bugatti Chiron – 0 To 400 km/h (249 mph) in 32.6 seconds – Video
In order to achieve a 25 percent increase in performance compared to its predecessor, almost every single part of the engine was looked at and newly developed.
This feat of engineering resulted in the W16 engine of the Bugatti Chiron1 being able to develop an unbelievable 1,103 kW (1,500 bps) from its 8 litres of displacement.
The engine reaches its maximum torque of 1,600 Nm thanks to the turbocharger which Bugatti actually even developed itself. The 4 turbochargers are now double-powered and already guarantee maximum torque at 2,000 rpm, and the torque is maintained at this level all the way up to 6,000 rpm.
The result is unbelievable acceleration which only comes to an end in the twilight zone somewhere beyond the 400 km/h mark.
