Bugatti Veyron Successor To Reach ‘288mph’ with ‘1,500bhp’

Bugatti Veyron Successor To Reach ‘288mph’ with ‘1,500bhp’

We all shed a tear when it was announced that Bugatti would be making the final generation of the legendary Veyron…

…as well as a little sigh of relief they weren’t going to keep dragging it out, if we’re honest. But CAR magazine has got its hands on some specs we were dying to hear about the Veyron’s replacement.

It’s called the Chiron and it’s expected to be pack 1,500bhp when it arrives some time in the next two years.

That’s quite a lot more power than the outgoing Veyron, even the most powerful version of which can only boast 1,200bhp. According to CAR’s sources, we can expect the Chiron to have a top speed of 288mph and accelerate from 0-62mph in just 2.0 seconds.

Needless to say, we’re quite excited. Understandably, it’ll be quite some time until the Chiron appears though – 2016 at the earliest, according to VW’s now ex-chairman (and father of the Veyron) Ferdinand Piech.
