Christophe Piochon, President of Bugatti Automobiles, said: “In the history of Bugatti, there have been cars that have redefined their era. The racing modified Type 35, the refined luxury of the Type 41 Royale, the Type 57 SC Atlantic set new design standards and today the Chiron Super Sport 300+ reaches speeds that we thought were unattainable for a production car. Its excellence has made it famous in Bugatti history and we are pleased to present these 30 examples of the Chiron Super Sport 300+ to some of our most passionate customers. »
To reach this unprecedented top speed of 304.773 mph (490.484 km/h) the Chiron Super Sport 300+ had to exceed the high standards already set by the Bugatti Chiron in terms of power and aerodynamics. A redesigned version of the legendary W16 8-litre engine boosts the Chiron’s output by 100 bhp, to a total of 1,600 bhp. World-class engineers have developed a new fuel management system for the engine and transmission of this super sports car while optimizing the software that manages the engine, transmission, powertrain and turbocharger.
But power is nothing without stability, especially at speeds never before achieved by a street-legal production car. While staying true to the timeless beauty of the Chiron design2, Chiron Super Sport 300+ has a “long tail” silhouette that increases the length of the car by about 25 cm, which in particular allows the laminar flow to pass for a long time over the bodywork, thus reducing the aerodynamic shop by more than 40 % . The air curtains adorning the front corners of the hyper sports car dissipate the excess air pressure on the sides of the car. Meanwhile, air vents in the wheel arches and behind the front wheels direct additional pressure from each wheel arch, reducing drag while delivering less power.
The extensive use of carbon fiber on the Chiron Super Sport 300+ extends to the engine cover and even the windscreen wiper. With a significantly reduced weight, this super sports car can push the limits of performance even further. Subtle touches, such as the Bugatti “Macaron” logo in real silver and black enamel, also reinforce the feeling of isolation and inaccessibility. Light and very strong, the magnesium alloy rims have a unique color called “Nocturne”.
30 units of the Chiron Super Sport 300+ have now been delivered. Each of these cars, among the fastest and most technologically advanced, represents a unique piece of automotive history.
