Bugatti Chiron Super Sport clocks 273 mph during high-speed tests
The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport seems like a tamer version of the limited-edition Super Sport 300+ that broke the speed record in 2019. However, it is by no means slow.
Before deliveries commence, Bugatti engineers have been busy putting the car through its paces. During one such high-speed test, the car hit a top speed of 273 mph (440 km/h). That’s a new production car speed record!
“Following successful road tests at up to 380 kph (236 mph), we are now refining the handling of the vehicle at up to 440 kph (273 mph), to allow the Chiron Super Sport to perform with uncompromising safety, even at this incredible top speed, and give the driver a good, and above all, safe feeling at extremely high speeds”, Jachin Schwalbe, head of chassis development, said.
The Chiron Super Sport was conceived following the success of the Super Sport 300+. With production limited to just 30 units, there were bound to be several unhappy billionaires. We have been told that there will no production cap (out of 500 units) on the Super Sport.
The Super Sport borrows the longtail body style without compromising on luxury. So, customers still get an opulent cabin with all the comforts you’d expect from a Chiron. The fact that the car can do 273 mph is just the icing on the cake.
