How To Prove The Bugatti Chiron Set A Record

How To Prove The Bugatti Chiron Set A Record

Despite our hard rule on avoiding listening to Bugatti talk about Bugatti , the company recently gave great insight on how, exactly, it filmed the Bugatti Chiron breaking records at 249 mph.

The answer, of course, requires a second Bugatti Chiron that is also going 249 mph.

The Chiron Is So Fast Bugatti Had To Use Another Chiron To Film Its Record 249 MPH Run

The Bugatti Chiron is fast. It’s...

After Careful Consideration, The Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport Wheels Are Good

After Careful Consideration, The Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport Wheels Are Good

I initially dismissed the Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport when it debuted earlier this month, ignoring the idea of a Chiron (a very fast car ) made marginally faster. However, after careful study and deliberation, I am happy to announce that the wheels specially designed for this car are good. I defy you to look at them and disagree.

Look at these things. They look like 1990s rally wheels. They look...

The Bugatti Sedan Was Axed At The Last Minute For Being Too Ugly

The Bugatti Sedan Was Axed At The Last Minute For Being Too Ugly

Ten years ago, after Bugatti had successfully stunned the world with the world’s-fastest car, the Bugatti Veyron, it set its sights on making a sedan. It almost made it to production, and then everything went completely wrong with the design.

According to Achim Anscheidt, Bugatti’s chief of design, speaking to Hagerty, the Galibier was one meeting away from getting the green light, and then...

You Don't Want To Hear Bugatti Talk About Bugatti

You Don't Want To Hear Bugatti Talk About Bugatti

The head of Bugatti, who used to be the head of Lamborghini, gave an interview recently with Autocar about how he doesn’t expect the W16 engine the company uses to go away anytime soon. But that’s not all.

Autocar kind of spun Bugatti president Stephan Winkelmann’s words into something they’re not. Winkelmann told the British pub:

Talking about its hypercars, opposed to any potential second...

I Am Utterly Fascinated By Bugatti's Instagram Comments

I Am Utterly Fascinated By Bugatti's Instagram Comments

Instagram, over the years, has morphed from that small corner of the internet where people weren’t constantly trying to fake it into that large corner of the internet where everyone is being paid to fake it. But there are still some bright spots, such as the comment sections of brand accounts like Bugatti.

See, once you scroll past the “top” comments on Instagram that always happen to be...

Here Are A Bunch Of Happy Italians Testing Early Bugatti EB110 Prototypes In The Snow

Here Are A Bunch Of Happy Italians Testing Early Bugatti EB110 Prototypes In The Snow

The Bugatti EB110 is as close as you’re ever going to get to an “unloved Bugatti.” Now it’s beloved, of course, for its quad-turbo V12 that gulped fuel through 12 individual throttle bodies, and its all-wheel-drive and its cheese-wedge styling. But back when it first debuted in 1991, there was a global recession going on. A bunch sold, of course, but the EB110 wasn’t enough to keep the...

‘The World’s Most Extraordinary Car Keys’ Versus My Car Keys: An In-Depth Comparison

‘The World’s Most Extraordinary Car Keys’ Versus My Car Keys: An In-Depth Comparison

While I often try to forget its existence, I was again reminded this week about the concept of ultra-luxury, bejeweled car keys—you know, the kinds of keys for people whose 18-karat gold emblem on the front of one of their four dozen supercars just isn’t enough. It was at that point I wondered: Why?

What reminded me of this grotesque concept was a recent Motor1 story, which featured a one-off...

Trees Aren't Gonna Fix This

Trees Aren't Gonna Fix This

Bentley said last week it would be planting 100 trees around its England factory in the name of “sustainability.” Its VW neighbor Bugatti also chimed in this week that it’d plant over 4,000 trees to “offset the CO2 emissions from its Chiron hypercar, offices, and factories,” according to Motor Authority. Both of these efforts, I’m sad to report, are stunningly useless.

Bentley and Bugatti...

Bugatti's New 'Chiron Noire' Special Edition Gives Buyers A $3-Million Choice Of Black, Black Or Black

Bugatti's New 'Chiron Noire' Special Edition Gives Buyers A $3-Million Choice Of Black, Black Or Black

The worst part about buying yet another supercar with my monthly allowance from Mom and Dad, which they give me as part of our agreement that I leave them be to day drink and flirt with the young tennis instructors at the country club or whatever, isn’t that I’ll have to forgo my usual expenses—a private jet to the islands, giving my poorer friends a vacation home as their wedding gift—for...

Bugatti And Volkswagen In Talks To Build An Electric Four-Seater

Bugatti And Volkswagen In Talks To Build An Electric Four-Seater

Bugatti caters to something of a niche market: very rich people who are interested in owning a fast, rare car. But that’s not quite enough to satisfy yet another growing sector of the automotive population: electric vehicle enthusiasts. Enter Volkswagen, who might just be funding Bugatti’s EV dreams.

That’s right. The goal is for Bugatti to develop an electric crossover or grand tourer that...

Koenigsegg Regera Proves It Only Needs One Gear To Set 0-400-0 Record

Koenigsegg Regera Proves It Only Needs One Gear To Set 0-400-0 Record

Sometimes rich people really dig into an engineering project only to complete it, lift their head and somberly wonder to themselves, “what was the point of all this?” When that happens, they create arbitrary records for their projects to attempt to beat, which Koenigsegg claims it has done by launching a Koenigsegg Regera from 0 to 400 km/h (248.5 mph)and back to 0 in a claimed record time.

Bugatti Sold Out Of Its $33,000 Kiddie Car In Three Weeks

Bugatti Sold Out Of Its $33,000 Kiddie Car In Three Weeks

The Bugatti Baby II , a new take on the tiny car founder Ettore Bugatti made for his youngest son’s fourth birthday in 1926, is a lot of things. You could call it a revival of history, as Bugatti does, or perhaps “the only Bugatti most of us can afford.” Or you could take the most direct route, which is a $33,000 kiddie car for the rich that sold out in three weeks.

Somehow, this $33,000...

This Is Likely The Best Shade-Throwing In Motoring History

This Is Likely The Best Shade-Throwing In Motoring History

I suspect many, perhaps even most of you reading this are familiar with what I’m about to talk about, but it’s one of those things I haven’t considered in a while. Recently, though, it did pop back into my head, and for some reason I thought about it with a fresh, dewy brain, and I appreciated it all over again, I think in a way I haven’t in years. It’s something that Ettore Bugatti once said...

The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ Is A $4 Million Salute To Breaking The 300 MPH Barrier

The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ Is A $4 Million Salute To Breaking The 300 MPH Barrier

Recently, Bugatti went out and did what many thought couldn’t be done with modern tire technology: It broke the 300-mph barrier , hitting nearly 305 mph in a “near production” Chiron plastered in orange stripes. And because success means nothing without commercial gain, the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ is here to commemorate the occasion—all for about $4 million each.

Come one, come all,...

Koenigsegg And Bugatti Are Still Passive-Aggressively Trash-Talking Each Other

Koenigsegg And Bugatti Are Still Passive-Aggressively Trash-Talking Each Other

Earlier this week, Bugatti claimed that the 304-mph Chiron could have gone faster if they had gone to a higher altitude place, like, say Nevada. They brought up Nevada, of course, because it is the first high-altitude place that comes to mind and not because Koenigsegg did its record-setting speed run there.

Why Bugatti Thinks It Could've Gone Faster Than That 304-MPH Speed Run, But Chose Not To

Why Bugatti Thinks It Could've Gone Faster Than That 304-MPH Speed Run, But Chose Not To

Just recently, Bugatti took a pre-production, monstrously powerful Chiron out to break the 300-mph barrier that, until now, was said to be elusive only by virtue of the limits of modern tire technology . But while Bugatti hit nearly 305 mph , the company wants everyone to know it could’ve gone faster.

Bugatti announced its speed run, in which it claimed to hit nearly 304.8 mph at the massive...

Bugatti Is Retiring From Speed Records

Bugatti Is Retiring From Speed Records

The day after cracking a record of 304.7 mph with its Chiron Sport, Bugatti has announced that it’s all done with that sort of thing. It’s retiring from trying to set speed records.

That’s a pretty surprising announcement for a marque that’s well known for absolutely crushing records. Bugatti set a speed record in its Veyron Super Sport in 2010 with a speed of 267.8 mph, followed a few years...

Bugatti Isn't Taking Your One-Off Model Requests, No Matter How Much Money You Want To Pay

Bugatti Isn't Taking Your One-Off Model Requests, No Matter How Much Money You Want To Pay

Money doesn’t buy taste, honey, and Bugatti doesn’t want yours. Don’t try to bribe the company into building you something from your puny brain, because it doesn’t want to. It’s going to build what it wants, and you can either buy it or not, because Bugatti exists to design the cars and you exist to buy them.

Yes, yes, this is terrible news, but at least you have 42 other vehicles at home to...

The Bugatti Chiron Just Cracked 304 MPH On Special Michelin Tires

The Bugatti Chiron Just Cracked 304 MPH On Special Michelin Tires

When the $3 million Bugatti Chiron launched a few years ago, we all marveled at how slow it was. With an electronically limited top speed of 261 mph, it didn’t seem capable of matching its predecessor the Veyron Super Sport, which hit a Guinness-certified 267.8 mph record in 2013 . It seemed like such a disappointment for the world’s petrostate oligarchs. Where are your bragging rights...

Bugatti Needs To Do A Top Speed Run For The Chiron Already

Bugatti Needs To Do A Top Speed Run For The Chiron Already

I was having a really hard time caring about the Buggati Centodieci this week . Another special-edition version of an already limited car selling for an ungodly amount of money. Then, I saw that its top speed is 231 mph. And now I’m angry.

The way I see it, Bugatti’s modern reason for being is the top speed record. They Veyron smashed the record and instantly catapulted Bugatti into the modern...
