The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport is coming, that’s what we have been hearing recently. The rumors sound pretty convincing, especially after the emergence of another one. It looks like Bugatti’s plan about this Super Sport variant is real after all.
Getting a leak from an undisclosed source within Bugatti, TheSupercarBlog said that a more radical version of the Chiron is planned to be present at the Geneva Motor Show in March next year.
Reportedly, official sketches of the car have been shown to prospective buyers two months ago during the launch of the Divo. And you better believe that the Super Sport looked both lovely and extreme enough in the sketches. Because Bugatti called it “a beauty of speed”, or in a more astounding description, a “ground-to-ground missile”.
Suppose the Chiron Super Sport is really coming, it should get better aerodynamics than the Chiron Sport; and with a slight decrease in weight, it will be lighter too. This can partially explain how the next-gen hypercar will pack a greater performance.
A complementary explanation would revolve around the engine, which is said to be the same 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W16 unit powering the Divo and Chiron. The output will probably be higher than the usual 1,500 PS and 1,600 Nm of torque, but we don’t know the exact figures.
The Chiron Super Sport might become Bugatti’s new weapon to regain the land speed record for street-legal cars, even though the company’s boss Stephan Winkelmann considers it not an important goal to achieve. At least that was what he implied when he spoke to CNBC last March.
Since the Chiron Super Sport will be a very hot hypercar, its production will likely be limited. We expect only a few dozen units to hit roads, with some of them seem to have been ordered already.
