The Bugatt Chiron Super Sport 300+ will come with the same naked carbon finish as the record-setting car, with an equally snazzy set of orange stripes.
The 300+ uses a 1,600-horsepower evolution of the Chiron’s 1,500-horsepower, quad-turbocharged W16. This mammoth of an engine channels its power to all four wheels via a seven-speed, dual-clutch all-wheel drive system. The sprint from zero to 60 mph takes under 2.4 seconds, while its true official top speed hasn’t been explored yet. Its Michelin tires were bench-tested at up to 317 mph.
The vehicle features an extended tail section, a different exhaust setup, and the enhanced 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine first installed in the Centodieci, producing 1,578 horsepower – about the same increase that differentiated the EB110 SS from the (relatively) less potent EB110 GT. The prototype also had its passenger seat removed and a roll cage installed, though the customer version will reportedly have the second throne for riding shotgun.
Bugatti will make 30 examples of the Chiron Super Sports 300+, and pricing starts at $3.5 million before taxes and options elbow their way into the equation. All things considered, that’s a surprisix, Nngly reasonable sum; the standard Chiron carries a $3 million price tag.
