Chiron By the Numbers: Taking a Closer Look at the 1500 HP Bugatti

What You Need to Know About the Chiron

How much do you really know about the new Bugatti Chiron? The 1,500-hp car will reach 60 mph in a manufacturer-estimated 2.4 seconds and cost nearly $3 million, but do you know how many Bugatti can make in a year? Or how many cars the average Chiron buyer owns?

The numbers you need to know about the Chiron:

  • The Bugatti badge on the Chiron's grille is hand-enameled sterling silver and costs VW Group more than $550.
  • The engine has been bench tested at full throttle for 25 hours; had it been in a Chiron in top gear, the car would have traveled the same distance as Wolfsburg, Germany, to Phoenix, Arizona.
  • The engine cooling system pumps coolant at the rate of 211 gallons per minute.
  • The entire Bugatti R & D team is composed of just 150 people, fewer people than work for a front-line Formula 1 team like Red Bull's.
  • The maximum production capacity at Bugatti's tiny Molsheim assembly plant is 70 cars a year.
  • The average Chiron buyer owns 42 cars, at least one jet, one yacht, three helicopters, and four houses. More than half are art collectors.

A full-size Chiron model was taken on a world tour last year—from Molsheim, France, to Los Angeles, London, Dubai, and Japan—to show potential customers. But you won't have to travel anywhere to get the best content around on the Bugatti Chiron -- get the full story on the 2016 Geneva Motor Show debut here at MotorTrend.com.

It's hard to figure out how to classify this Nissan. Street? Drift? Show? It's a show car that can compete yet could be an art piece.
