Bugatti Chiron Acceleration – Video
Leaving the 99.99 percent in its dust, the Chiron is a 1500-hp smackdown of every hypercar ever produced. An 8.0-liter 16-cylinder engine uses four turbochargers to make 1500 hp and 1180 lb-ft of torque, but calling its acceleration “heroic” would be an understatement—Bugatti claims a top speed of 261 mph. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic routes power to all four wheels, but it can do more than straight-line speed. The $2,998,000 price tag is a bourgeoisie bargain—hey, it’s under $3 million.
