Bugatti Chiron Review: Specs and Pricing

Updated: Apr 18


Bugatti Chiron

Overview


The 2022 Chiron is the ultimate automobile as well as the ultimate Bugatti. Period. Thanks to a 16-cylinder engine with four turbochargers and at least 1500 horsepower—the more expensive Super Sport edition is even more potent—this $3 million work of art can pound the pavement at nearly 200 mph.


The Chiron's interior is equally as beautifully crafted as its exterior and pampers passengers with high-end materials, which helps to explain its high price. But let's face it—the audience is paying for this performance.


If you're hoping for contemporary conveniences like Apple CarPlay or driver-assistance technology, you won't find them here. However, after you've driven this beast, you won't likely care about such tiny flaws.


Which one to Purchase?


People choose vehicles like the Chiron because they want one that turns heads on the street, at the valet stand, or in front of the Monte Carlo Casino. The base Chiron fits the bill with its sweeping lines and infamously sky-high price.

Even the pickiest hypercar buyer should be able to smile after seeing this vehicle, in our opinion. The Chiron includes features including full power accessories and quad LED headlights as standard equipment.


Bugatti Chiron: Engine and Performance


A 16-cylinder, 8.0-liter engine powers every Chiron variant. Four turbochargers are used by this monster engine to produce a powerful 1500 horsepower and 1180 pound-feet of torque. With a top speed of 261 mph, Bugatti boasts that the Chiron can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in under 2.3 seconds. Choose the Chiron Super Sport if the basic engine isn't satisfying your need for speed.


This model has a somewhat more powerful variation of the standard engine, which has a 1578 horsepower output. On our test track, the Super Sport reached 200 mph in under 15 seconds and reached 60 mph in only 2.2 seconds.

A variant with specifications that are nearly comparable to those of the Chiron Super Sport clocked a record-breaking 304.773 mph test-track run while being driven by factory test driver Andy Wallace. Power is distributed to all four wheels of every model in the Chiron series using a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.



Bugatti Chiron: Interior and Comfort


The Chiron's side panels have a C-shaped design cue carved into them, and the interior of the vehicle also incorporates this motif. The elegant curve of a divider separating the driver and passenger reflects it. Top-notch materials have been used by Bugatti to outfit the Chiron's cabin, while space-age stylistic cues give a quirky flair.


The driver is greeted by a flat-bottomed steering wheel, and according to Bugatti, the glossy center console is built of a single piece of solid metal. The Chiron is best used with minimal luggage. There are only two cubic feet of storage space in the trunk.


Bugatti Chiron: Infotainment System


Compromises on the infotainment front result from Chiron's sole focus on performance. This Bugatti drives very much like a race vehicle, and it has the minimal tech to go with it. There is no infotainment screen, and no support for Apple CarPlay or Android Auto is provided.


A stereo system and a trip computer are pretty much the only infotainment features offered by the vehicle. The sound system has four tweeters that each use a one-carat diamond membrane for precise output, and it has an exquisite sound quality. That is what you would anticipate from a car with a starting price of millions.


Bugatti Chiron: Safety


Commonly available driver aid systems like blind-spot monitoring are not present on the Chiron. Visit the websites of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) for more details regarding the results of Chiron's crash tests.


Bugatti Chiron: Pricing


The Bugatti Chiron is a super expensive car, with a starting price of around $3 million [US dollars]. That's a lot of money for a car, but the Chiron is one of the most powerful and fastest cars on the market. It has a quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 engine that produces 1,500 horsepower and can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.4 seconds!
