  • Bugatti Chiron test with astronaut Jon A. McBride

    Astronauts handle some of the wildest vehicles mankind has ever built. Naturally, it only makes sense to put a former astronaut in the passenger seat of a Bugatti Chiron to see how it compares. Last Friday, Bugatti did just that when it placed astronaut Jon A. McBride in the passenger seat of the Chiron to get a taste of the supercar's blistering acceleration. The French supercar maker landed in Cape Canaveral at NASA'S Kennedy Space Center in Florida for speed and aerodynamic testing with McBride as part of the team for a day. The shuttle landing facility is a prime location to test a car...

  • Bugatti Chiron top speed run
    Owner takes Bugatti Chiron to its top speed

    While most owners of the Bugatti Chiron will never come close to the top speed potential of their cars, some are more than happy to push their cars to the limit.

  • Bugatti Chiron Sport

    Koenigsegg set the industry ablaze when it used an owner's car to set a 277.9 mph top speed world record for street legal production cars. Since then, all eyes have been on a handful of rivals, including Bugatti, which held the production-car record for years. Now, the French supercar brand says the Chiron could hit 280 mph. But, there are no plans to exercise such a claim. "I think it could easily go 440km/h or 450km/h (274 mph or 280 mph)," Stefan Winkelmann, Bugatti CEO, told Car Advice in a Monday report. He added, "We've not made the test. If you do it then it's not something that needs...

  • Bugatti builds a Chiron with an exposed carbon fiber body

    The United Kingdom has an official Bugatti dealership, and it's no surprise that it should fall under the reins of H.R. Owen. As a means of advertising its wares in the best way possible, the dealership has crafted a Chiron with a special body. Instead of insane colors or a crazy livery, the H.R. Owen Chiron is a bit more menacing thanks to its fully exposed black carbon fiber body panels. Founded in 1932, H.R. Owen is essentially supercar Disneyland in London. The dealer's specialty is ultra high-end brands like Ferrari, Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Lamborghini, and now Bugatti. This isn't some...

    Bugatti, Volkswagen Group's French hypercar brand, has a new Chiron variant in the works. Apparently, this won't be a typical special edition model. Instead, the vehicle is quite "controversial." That's the word YouTuber Whitesse JR used to describe the new Chiron variant. The cameraman was...

  • Bugatti Chiron telemetry
    Bugatti owners can rest easy as technicians monitor cars in real time

    Tesla has popularized remote monitoring and updating of cars with its “over the air” system, but it wasn't the first automaker to do so. Bugatti had a similar system in place when it launched the Veyron last decade and with the car's successor, the 1,480-horsepower Chiron, the French...

    Bugatti boss isn't interested in Chiron's top speed

    They say a submarine captain never truly knows how deep his vessel can go. Similarly, Bugatti CEO Stephan Winkelmann doesn't know how fast his Chiron can go. According to a report published by CNBC last Thursday, he doesn't care to find out. When Bugatti launched the Chiron back in 2016, the...

  • Bugatti Chiron Sport

    Can a new Bugatti be disappointing? No, that's ridiculous. But we'll admit to feeling a little surprised by the arrival of the new Bugatti Chiron Sport, which debuted Tuesday at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show. That's not because of what it adds—a sharper, more aggressive suspension and a new torque-vectoring system—but because of what it's missing, mainly the word “Super” in its name and any improvement on its 1,480-horsepower engine. The handling improvements are welcome. Blistering speed has never been an issue for the latest Bugattis, but attaching an...
