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...

‘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...

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,...

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...

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...

The Bugatti SUV Will Be Dumb

The Bugatti SUV Will Be Dumb

The latest rumors indicate Bugatti may be developing an SUV as a second production model alongside the Chiron. As someone who normally doesn’t give a shit about companies wanting to make money with SUVs, this one makes me feel a little sick.

I Don't Believe Bugatti for a Second

Bugatti has to be one of the last automakers out there that has either does not offer an SUV or has …

Time's Running Out to Buy Yourself a New Bugatti Chiron

Time's Running Out to Buy Yourself a New Bugatti Chiron

We know, we know, $3 million is an investment. It takes time to decide whether you want to put seven figures toward something, but time isn’t always a given. Time certainly isn’t a given with the 1,500-horsepower Bugatti Chiron, which has less than 100 build slots left.

You’d better get to thinking already.

Car and Driver reports that “less than 100” is the figure straight from Bugatti, which...

This $12.5 Million Bugatti Is the Most Expensive New Car Ever

This $12.5 Million Bugatti Is the Most Expensive New Car Ever

These days, do you really stand out if you drive a $3 million Bugatti Chiron? And God help you if you’re still driving around in the last-generation Veyron, which may as well be a broke-ass 1990s Honda Accord to the hyper-wealthy. No, what you need is this: the Bugatti La Voiture Noire, price tag $12.5 million.

Of course, Bugatti is only making one of them—this one. So if you obtain one,...

The French Pride Bugatti Chiron Is My Favorite Supercar This Week

The French Pride Bugatti Chiron Is My Favorite Supercar This Week

The Bugatti Chiron Sport “110 ans Bugatti” is one of the only cars pulling off blue-on-blue in 2019, which is awesome, but I think the French flag rear spoiler is one of the funnest features I’ve seen on a supercar in a while.

What can I say, I’m a huge sucker for special editions. Maybe I’ll bring that up with my therapist later. Meanwhile, let’s all just drown in the beautifully deep blue...

Testing a 3D-Printed Bugatti Brake Caliper Is Surprisingly Beautiful to Watch

Brakes are arguably the most important part of a car. Bugatti, a company that makes big and fast toys for very wealthy people, is testing out its 3D-printed brake caliper for production—and it’s actually wild to watch.

The Bugatti Chiron’s top speed is 261 mph, but it theoretically could go faster , having been electronically-limited by Bugatti only because there aren’t tires currently manufactured that would be safe at higher speeds. That doesn’t mean 261 in a car isn’t fast, though. Here’s what it looks like on the inside when...

Et Tu, Bugatti?

Et Tu, Bugatti?

The company once known for its 16-cylinder engines and speed limiters for its cars’ own good delivers the final blow, saying it, too, may add an SUV to its lineup. Thus, we all fall, clasping at the backstabbing, crossover- and SUV-driven puncture wounds from every automaker we once thought pure.

Bugatti typically has a small lineup, and it keeps in the news by putting out special editions...

Bugatti Won't Make Another 16-Cylinder Engine

Bugatti Won't Make Another 16-Cylinder Engine

In doing the unthinkable, Bugatti CEO Stephan Winkelmann told Australian website CarAdvice there won’t be another 16-cylinder Bugatti engine after this one. Preposterous! Who could imagine a future where people could, potentially, get close to counting the cylinders in their Bugatti on their... fingers?

Well, a lot of people can. Whether it’s more due to tightening emissions standards or
