Bugatti has unveiled its newest model, the Chiron SuperSport 2022 model, on June 8th, 2021. The company wouldn’t say if this is the final edition of the gasoline-powered Chiron family, which debuted in 2016. Despite this, the new Chiron Super Sport boasts improved performance over its predecessors. Although it may be difficult to tell the SuperSport from previous Chirons at first look, the car does have some modest cosmetic alterations. The interior of the car is unchanged.
The new Chiron Super Sport is “the ultimate grand tourer” as well as the most Powerful petrol-powered road car that you can buy, according to the CEO at Molsheim. The first deliveries will begin in early 2022, although just 60 will be built. The £4.2 million Super Sport 300+ was limited to only 30 units, making it less unique than the more user-friendly model.
The 8.0-liter W16 engine for the Chiron Super Sport has been ‘thoroughly refurbished, resulting in a performance increase of 99bhp, and bringing the total output to 1,578bhp according to Bugatti. The turbochargers, oil pump, and cylinder head with a valve train, as well as the transmission and clutch, have all been modified. We increased the revolutions per minute (rpm) for even more longitudinal acceleration and a more expressive driving experience,’ explains Michael Kodra, Bugatti’s head of Drive development. The engine is mated with a seven-gear dual-clutch transmission.
The Chiron Super Sport sprints from 0 to 124 miles per hour (200 km/h) in 5.8 seconds and 124 miles per hour to 186 mph (300 km/h) in 12.1 seconds. According to Bugatti, the Chiron Super Sport accelerates from 0 to 249 mph (400 km/h) seven percent faster than a standard Chiron.
Its dimensions are a meter longer than the ordinary Chiron. Almost all of the Very Sport 300+’s extreme aero kit has been removed, leaving a streamlined missile-like form that looks super stylish. The otherwise central exhaust system has been relocated to the side, with the pipes lined vertically. In addition, the exhaust system sounds ‘more profound and richer. Even though the Bugatti Chiron was already loud enough. The wheels in this limited edition also differ from the original Chiron. These gorgeous aluminum five-Y-spoke design rims are offered in a diamond-cut variant and are only available for the Chiron SuperSport.
Bugatti has also created a new chassis that is tailored to the Chiron Super Sport’s high speeds and improved aerodynamics. And the chassis can adapt to the circumstances faster than you can blink: experts retuned the electronically controlled chassis to adjust the parameters in real-time in only six milliseconds.
The price for this limited edition is much costly. Before you even factor in VAT, that’s £2.75 million for a UK buyer. When you add that to the amount, you get a total of £3.3 million. The SuperSport is undeniably expensive, but it doesn’t even come close to cracking the top ten most costly new cars, thanks to recent high-end car inflation.
