Bugatti Unveils the Chiron

Bugatti has revealed its all-new hypercar to the world – the Chiron.

Utilising a quad-turbocharged 8.0-litre W16 engine, the Chriron produces 1,479bhp and can reach 62mph in less than 2.5 seconds. It will carry on accelerating to a top speed of 261mph.

Revealed at the Geneva Motor Show, the Chiron will be limited to just 500 units. Each one will cost an incredible £1.9 million.

The engine, which featured in the Bugatti Veyron, is heavily reworked and now produces 492bhp more than the previous car.

At the front of the Chiron sits a race-grade splitter, alongside the trademark Bugatti horseshoe-shaped grille. A newly developed carbonfibre monocoque structure helps maintain rigidity, as well as lowering the car's overall weight. In a first for a production vehicle, the Chiron features a passenger airbag that can deploy through carbonfibre, too.

The new Chiron will be built in Mosheim, France. At present, Buggati has received more than 150 orders, with the lucky buyers receiving their cars in October
