Quote>"Seventh gear boasts 3.6 percent longer transmission."
Quote>"Even above 6,000 rpm, acceleration doesn’t diminish, giving the Chiron Super Sport a mighty thrust up to 7,100 rpm."
So now we two mathematical confirmations. First in the calculator increase the rpm by 100rpm>
7th Gear = 475.23 km/h - 294.64 mph
Just a stupidly small change and look what happens? Plus 4MPH!
Then finally 294.64 mph X 3.6% as per BUGATTI'S claim= 305.247MPH
Now this is obviously a calculation. But I wanted to set the scene on the levels of research I do. The figures are out there. But it takes alot of digging. We end with a number for the Bugatti Chiron Supersport 300+.
So what does this tell us?
The standard production Bugatti Chiron had the power and gearing for deep into the 280's MPH region. I believe in a good day at Ehra-Lessien it'd achieve just over a 285MPH TWO WAY average. This is based on Bugatti Veyron Supersport's results and verifications both ways that are verified and based on Bugatti's own internal simulations and calculations. It went HIGHER than they were expecting.
And this is ABSOLUTELY inline with gearing, engine power, calculations plus the ex R+D boss of Bugatti's number when asked the too speed of the Chiron, 285MPH!
That's mean they have the opportunity and potentiality and production cars to possibly beat the current productions record. Albeit not in the same distance. But so what?
