Bugatti Chiron Prototype Shows Off its Mean Mug

Hypercar is rumored to make around 1,500 HP.

The upcoming Bugatti Chiron hypercar should have a menacing mug to go along with its menacing amounts of power. A photo of a Chiron prototype recently surfaced on the heels of Bugatti's announcement that the Veyron's successor will officially be named Chiron.

The lone photo reveals plenty about the Chiron's looks. No one will mistake it for anything other than a Bugatti and it appears to be more of an evolution of the Veyron with tighter lines, a more aggressive front fascia, and super wide haunches. While not as wild as the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo concept, the Chiron will still look like a proper hypercar and should turn plenty of heads.

Speculation suggests that the Chiron will feature an updated version of the Veyron's 8.0-liter, quad-turbo W-16. The engine will feature direct injection along with electric turbochargers for near instantaneous boost. Completing the drivetrain will be a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic and all-wheel drive. Total output is rumored to be around 1,500 hp, which is 300 more horses than the Veyron. Top speed is expected to reach an insane 288 mph.

The price tag will undoubtedly top a million bucks, but that hasn't stopped 100 customers from placing orders for the new hypercar. Bugatti says the Chiron will make its official debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, though the car probably won't roll off the production line until 2017.
