‘it is part of human nature to cross boundaries and set new records – to run 100 m faster than ever before, to fly even further into space and to enter new realms. this striving is also our driving force at bugatti,’ explains wolfgang dürheimer, president of bugatti automobiles. ‘the chiron is the result of our efforts to make the best even better.’


an eight-liter W16 engine is a combination of four new, larger turbochargers that are controlled by the bugatti two-stage turbocharging an innovation that bugatti is introducing, and a large number of other technical refinements and innovations, maximum performance is available constantly and can be easily controlled at all speeds.
