Bugatti Chiron Coming in 2016 with 1500HP

When will the world see a new Bugatti? That’s a question journalists and enthusiasts alike have been asking forever. After all, the Veyron has been on the market for almost 10 years already (since 2005).

But there may be an answer to that question in 2016, when Bugatti is allegedly set to release the Veyron-replacing Chiron. It’s a car that will have 1500 horsepower and a 0-60 mph time of 2.5 seconds. Yeah, that fast.

According to Automobile, the Chiron will be much lighter than the Veyron it replaces. It will have better handling too. Much needed when you’re tossing around something with 1500 horsepower under the hood.

Unlike many modern supercars, though, it’s reported that the Chiron will stay away from hybridization, favoring a quad-turbocharged W16 and direct fuel injection, boosting power from 1,200 to 1,500.

As for speed — 288 mph is the alleged top end. At that rate, that would make it the fastest car on the planet. For now, all this detailed information remains unconfirmed from Bugatti.
Still, we can expect the Chiron in 2016 with a price tag of — wait for it — $2.5 million. That’s a lot of scratch.
