Bugatti is currently busy putting the Chiron Pur Sport and the mighty Super Sport 300+ through its paces at the Nardo test track in Italy.
Bugatti has brought along eight pre-production cars, that will be tested over a period of 4 weeks. The test vehicles will be covering a total of over 20,000 kilometres, before they are signed-off for production.
Earlier, Matt Watson got a ride in the Super Sport 300+ around the Nardo high speed bowl. Thanks to a streamlined body and a more potent 8.0-liter W16 engine, this car can do speeds in excess of 300 mph.
Along with the record setting hypercar, Bugatti engineers are also conducting evaluation rides of the Chiron Pur Sport. Unlike the Super Sport 300+, which is designed for high speed, the Pur Sport is built to attack corners. It’s the most track-focused of all Chirons. It has also been around the dreaded Nurburgring Nordschleife and has been tested on the undulating tarmac of the Bilster Berg circuit in Germany.
