😢 Final STANDARD specifications (1500hp) Bugatti Chiron and Bugatti Chiron Sports to be delivered by the end of the month in Europe!

https://newsroom.bugatti.com/press-releases/bugatti-chiron-lebe-bugatti-honors-ettores-daughter-with-a-special-edition

Quote>"L'Ébé Bugatti, Ettore Bugatti's daughter and eldest child, was very close to him, like a soul mate. Bugatti is now honoring L'Ébé with a very special small series of three cars. For the FINAL DELIVERY of the Chiron1 and Chiron Sport2 in Europe, Bugatti's designers developed a Chiron and two Chiron Sport with the name L'Ébé. All three hand-crafted hyper sports cars are bearing unique details in the Art Deco style."

This DOESN'T include the Bugatti Chiron Supersport or Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport which continue manufacturing production at Molshiem until Q3 or Q4 2022.

But still an INCREDIBLE hypercar. One of the finest ever. Took an already incredibly impressive one to the next levels. And that's it.

If there is such thing as "best car in the world", Chiron is it.


User avatar

TypeF173  2w ago @FastestLaps

Absolutely. A production hypercar. A pioneering record holder (0-400-0km). A supreme GT. I mean the superlatives go on!

Engineering and quality... best of the best.

Oh absolutely, the engineering is second to absolutely none! And those interiors are, metaphorically speaking to die for! I believe only Pagani may edge them there!

User avatar

TypeF173  2w ago @KoenigseggNerd

I'm aware. Obviously. Records get beaten once then your beating yourself.

In fact the Bugatti Chiron won more multiple metrics in the first verified comparison carried out by Jason Fenske in Engineering Explained than Koenigsegg Agera RS did. And it became apparent why Koenigsegg didn't release full metrics, atleast for that run. I'll pull them up, side by side. But from memory the Bugatti Chiron was quicker 0-100 0-200 and 0-300km/h and stopped quicker 400-0km/h? Amazing? Incredible really? So 75% of usable acceleration complete acceleration range? ;)

Just saying. It's much more than metrics anyway.


User avatar

TypeF173  2w ago @Shwingbob

Fair enough, I do remember the older ones but the more recent or current ones I'll, time permitting, look at them.


User avatar

TypeF173  2w ago @KoenigseggNerd

https://ibb.co/znTD0nz

I remembered correctly. Anyway the Rimac Nevera currently is acceleration King and was independently tested by Carwow. 171.79MPH @ 8.62 seconds~1/4 mile.

And they say she can go quicker again. We'll see, I've heard it all before. But verified seconds ahead of anything on the planet currently known.

;)


User avatar

KoenigseggNerd  2w ago @TypeF173

Those numbers were taken from the initial, and extremely rough run that Koenigsegg did. The lack of traction on the rough surface they used caused the initial acceleration numbers to be slower. However once they got up to 300KMH it was nearly dead even, and they smacked them in 0-400 going almost 6 seconds faster. In terms of the deceleration, they were pretty much the same; a very negligible difference but the Koenigsegg actually stopped in the shortest distance. The fact that Koenigsegg still beat them on a rough surface and barely prepping + a lack of traction at the start is in an incredible feat, really goes to show how impressive the engineering is on the Agera's.


User avatar

TypeF173  2w ago @KoenigseggNerd

I've never said they weren't impressive? I'm aware of all that, they rushed it too much. There was no need to reply that quickly.

Anyway at the Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds a Canadian Bugatti Chiron standard specifications, customer delivered car, independently verified went 5 seconds quicker than the Bugatti pioneering World Record? So with these hypercars anything is possible?

A McLaren 765LT has hit 180MPH+ just in the 1/2 mile!🔥

LOL!


User avatar

KoenigseggNerd  2w ago @Shwingbob

Spyker interior's are truly a work of art, the manual shifter looks like an art piece rather than an actual mechanical lever. I always call Spyker's "Mini Paganis" because they have nearly as good attention to detail as they do.


User avatar

KoenigseggNerd  2w ago @TypeF173

The way you initially worded it made it seem like Koenigsegg beating them in the roughest conditions possible wasn't impressive, but that's here nor there. Also I responded 15 hours later? I'm confused as to what you mean by responding quickly lol. As you said, anything is possible with these types of cars, hell UGR Huracan's would pretty much destroy any Bugatti, Koenigsegg, or SSC in the 1/2 mile. It's crazy the type of performance we're able to reach today


User avatar

TypeF173  2w ago @KoenigseggNerd

No, just saying the two tonne Rolls Royce vis a vis the first test did well in comparison. LOL!

I worked out what the Hennessey Venom GT could have done but they never tried! And years earlier too! By seconds. Everyone waited too long.

Shwingbob  2w ago @TypeF173

One more car I could find was the apollo ie interior is something truly unique. Bugatti is tge only one here with 1000+ hp though, I like the tuatara interior and various konigseggs but I don't think they beat bugatti

The closest thing I could think of is if they do the new American fighter jet and put it against the Bugatti Bolide with its racing fuel.


User avatar

Bugatti4Life  2m ago

Yeah the jet never stood a chance.


User avatar

Bugatti4Life  2m ago

Here's my vision on how the race would play. The Bugatti Chiron launches hard off the line while the jet takes roughly 17 whole seconds to get off the ground. Bam the Chiron passes 200 miles per hour and gets to about 206 miles per hour before the jet even leaves the ground. The Chiron goes to the other side shooting like a bullet and beats the jet by a good few meters.


User avatar

Bugatti4Life  2m ago

Fastestlaps I want your opinion on something. So remember the video from Top Gear from 2008 when the old Bugatti Veyron race an F-15 fighter jet. Well what if they grabbed the Bugatti Chiron and that same jet and did the race again but it would be the Bugatti Chiron vs an F-15. What do you think would win? I would believe the Chiron since the Veyron was so close with the F-15 already. The Chiron would have to win.

Bugatti Chiron 1500hp standard specifications factory manufacturer production hypercar Nurburguring calculation/estimation. It's exceptionally difficult to utilise the benchmarking process but nevertheless you press on ahead.

Full lap (non of that confusing short bollocks) brand new Michelin's and a professional driver I believe she could rip off a 7.08 (plus or minus) minutes and seconds.

Break 7 minutes? It'd be bloody close, weather and traction dependent.

Please note I'm ABSOLUTELY NOT talking about the Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport. Which could improve on that by perhaps as much as 10 full seconds, maybe a few more.

Anyway, that's that. And that's done. Unfortunately I don't believe the cars will ever make a full on attempt anyway. And that's a shame.

Bugatti Chiron vs Mclaren 720S 1/4 mile race at Yas Marina
Notes:

It is rather hot there even in the evening, times will be worse than colder climate tracks
The Mclaren clearly used launch control as the engine note was audible, not sure about the bug - it did start decently and didn't bog down, so possibly it used launch control too.
The McLaren did 10.66 @ 225 km/h (139.7 mph)
The Bugatti did 9.95 @ 241 km/h ( 149.7 mph)

Quote>"If you accept that first and foremost a hypercar has to have epic performance then it should be no surprise that the Chiron is sitting at the top of our hypercar tree. It’s mindwarpingly savage in its acceleration – nothing with four wheels connects corners quite as effectively – perhaps unsurprising given the numbers generated by its quad-turbo W16.
8-litres in capacity and developing an eye-watering 1479bhp and 1180lb ft of torque, the Bugatti Chiron dispatches the 0-62mph segment in 2.5sec before crashing through the 124mph barrier a scant four seconds later. Top speed is limited to 261mph, but in August 2019 Bugatti did take a modified variant to 304mph with Andy Wallace at the helm, illustrating the car’s potential.

That the Chiron has the high-tech underpinnings to match its outrageous pace should be a given and with a carbonfibre tub reinforced with a sliver of aluminium honeycomb it has the torsional rigidity to match an LMP1 car. Blend in a fully adaptive chassis that optimises ride height, aerodynamics, steering and damping and it has an unexpected level of agility too.

There’s bags of grip on offer but there’s more connection through the steering than the Veyron could muster and, fortunately, the 420mm carbon front discs with their eight-pot calipers (along with the Chiron’s airbrake) ensure it stops as well as it goes.

The overriding impression though is of speed, pure unadulterated performance,and our only gripe is that there’s hardly anywhere on the planet you can meaningfully exploit its potential. That and its £2.1 million (before taxes) price tag."

Nice to see them all in one place ranked. Keep stating it, many whom have driven the Bugatti Chiron on racetracks state it's very dynamically capable and a sweet steer. She was developed by professional level racers.

Anyway that's irrelevant, accordingly to Evo Magazine it's Number One. Any questions, ask THEM!

I don't know if anyone will try to "beat" that speed but after the trouble he VERY nearly got into I would doubt it very much. It would be flagrant disobedience.

Looks like it's a keeper and at those speeds the right car too, as evidenced.

ONLY, and left repeat that in FRENCH, SEULEMENT, again in English ONLY Bugatti have had FULLY homologated cars WORLDWIDE since the inception of the Bugatti Veyron. And I knew because NOBODY has/had Volkswagen's research and development facilities, the engineering skills or Piech's vision and almost unlimited budget to pull off the W16'S.
Period. Robert Mitchell confirmed this, the matter of homologation in an interview.

Everyone else is well, NOT. Pagani AND Koenigsegg HAVE or HAD or currently enjoy SMALL MANUFACTURER EXEMPTIONS~ because that's exactly what they are in comparison (Pagani to a lesser degree in terms of production numbers, they are second behind Bugatti from the numbers I've seen) have utilised loopholes to circumnavigate rules and regulations surrounding homologation. I don't care if it's a belt buckle, or a rear bumper they HAVE, or HAD and benefited by selling production cars because of this and raked in the money because of sales in the United States of America because EXEMPTIONS and EXTENSIONS for some were granted (not necessarily any mentioned). Period.

So any manufacturer claiming the "moral" high ground and it's only one, need to go on about their OWN SMALL business, with current or previous exemptions. Not Bugatti.

Hennessey and SSC North America's product isn't any less capable than anybody else's. Czinger I'm sure will join them and they are the ones I know of. It's incredibly impressive engineering. It doesn't change because an airbag is ****ing missing. The owners are fully capable of judgement and foresight before turning over millions of dollars. So if it's Show or Display, it's Show and Display? McLaren Speedtail, and I believe the Aston Martin Valkyrie and even Lotus Evija are for various reasons (I will triple check all three). And we look down on the Americans, why? FK that.

Anyway whatever, LOL! And you'll NEVER, EVER hear a Bugattisti, or atleast I've never come across one mentioning it, any "homologation" or "superiority" or "bollocks".

And if anyone can it's Molshiem. But their too busy making the ****ing things to say anything about it!

LOL!

No correspondence needed or wanted. Or @'s. I don't really care anyway. I'd purchase ANY of them if I could. And if you don't understand the point, not my problem. Period.

Bugatti driver facing two years jail for Autobahn run? ****ing bollocks!

Quote>"Millionaire tycoon could face two years in jail after he sparked outrage when he was filmed driving £2.5m Bugatti supercar at 259MPH on speed limit-free autobahn."

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10457511/Millionaire-tycoon-face-two-years-jail-driving-2-5m-Bugatti-supercar-259MPH.html

Quote>"Prosecutors confirmed they are investigating Radim Passer, 58, for taking part in an ALLEGED ILLEGAL RACE after he posted a video online of himself racing down the A2 between Berlin and Hanover."

"ALLEGED"~ there's NOTHING "alleged". The GPS speed was achieved. It's VERIFIED! LOL!

"ILLEGAL"~ there's NOTHING "illegal". There are no posted speed limits. Full stop.

"RACE"~ there was NO "racing" and there was no "race" there was no "podium" and there were definitely not any beautiful "grid girls" present. That I saw anyway.

Carwow and Top Gear both were over 210MPH in Germany?

If the authorities are concerned about speeds, LIMIT them.

It wasn't possibly what most would have done, but no laws were broken and I saw from what I recall no safety infractions. Or any endangerment to anyone else. In fact I never really clocked it but it doesn't take a Bugatti Chiron long to hit it's limiter, once there he backed off. Obviously.

Rimac "show" FOUR collaboration vehicles with Bugatti!

https://ibb.co/1mTybhJ

The vehicle at the back looks like a 1920's- 1940's production car. Just imagine! It's possibly full electric too.

The next vehicle on looks like a Le Man's or GT3 type racer! Although why, with the Bugatti Bolide coming in 2023 this is needed doesn't make sense. Unless it's actually a production racer!

The next one on looks like mix of the Bugatti Veyron and Bugatti Chiron it's profiling is unmistakable. The Bugatti "Sky View" and horseshoe grille are clearly evident. This looks likely as the Bugatti Chiron replacement. And it's NOT going to be easy to do. Allegedly a naturally aspirated hybrid. Those have never achieved more than 1000hp.

The fourth model is out of shot and out of sight so unfortunately not too much to glean.

There's NO way in hell even Mate has executed so many cars even if display models in such a short time. My instincts are telling me these maybe, possibly some of them, actually more Bugatti than Rimac. But that's no bad thing!

My FINAL say on the Bugatti Chiron 0-400-0km/h timings.

 

Start 52 seconds Finish 58 seconds 0-200km/= 6 seconds.

Start 52 seconds Finish 1.05 minutes/seconds 0-300km/h= 13 seconds.

Bugatti/Racelogic GPS independently verified by the TUV.

Bugatti states 6.1 seconds and 13.1 seconds?

Bugatti CLAIMED 6.5 seconds and 13.6 seconds in 2016 at the Geneva Motorshow?

And Car and Driver Magazine have have achieved 2.4 seconds 0-60MPH? Yes absolutely plus rollout? So 2.6 seconds?

And you think Bugatti is going to put it's reputation on the line for the sakes of 0.1 seconds to 100km/h?

The Bugatti Veyron has achieved that figure independently, accordingly to FL and ZP databases?

LOL! Don't think so. Any issues TUV~Bugatti~ Racelogic. Those are your choices.

I got an answer back from the first one. Effectively citing client privilege as a reason NOT to release figures? LOL!

This mess is Bugatti's fault. Just put a digital timer synchronous to the visible speedometer in sight for the complete 0-400-0km/h run? The TUV were paid? Why didn't they say anything?

Anyway, it's hardly 331MPH to 286.10MPH level of FK up, but still.

A process of verification a five year old could do will be shown!

These are the original Bugatti Chiron acceleration claims from 2016. And in 2017 they achieved them. Period.

Quote>"Clearly this is a game of very senior numbers, so here’s some more. It will accelerate from 0-62mph in less than 2.5 seconds, 0-124mph in less than 6.5 and 0-186mph in under 13.6."
