After a career punctuated by limited editions and superlatives, the firsthypercar to have crossed the 1000hp barrier is about to be replaced, here are the first indiscretions about the car that should bear the name of Bugatti Chiron.
Indeed, even if the Bugatti Veyron will remain a legend for its time, today it is matched in terms of exclusivity and power by at least three cars to name a few … The Porsche 918 Spyder, the LaFerrari and McLaren P1 flirting with each with 1000hp and the million € …
Obviously, Bugatti has to answer and will present shortly an hypercar with a hybrid engine – to reach a new record at 1500hp!
According to information available, the 8l W16 engine will remain (1001hp and 1250nm for the first versions) but matted to an electric motor placed between the gearbox and the engine to reach a new power peak and stay ahead of its competitors!
Some test mules of the Bugatti Chiron have been spotted recently while the car should arrive in 2016.
At the same time, another information has emerged on the web – Jaguar apparently registered the name EV-Type – let’s hope the beautiful CX-75 is back in JLR’s plans!
