We have some exciting news about Bugatti’s plans for the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Our sources tell us that the brand is planning an extreme version of the Chiron and no, it’s not the Divo. Could it be the Chiron Super Sport?
Sketches of the new car were shown to VIP customers at the time of the Divo’s unveiling at Château Saint-Jean. The car is being described as “a beauty of speed” and a “Ground-to-ground Missile”.
We’ve been told that new version will be powered by the same 8.0-liter, quad-turbo W16 engine. However, Bugatti is reportedly pushing it to the limit to extract every ounce of performance. Hence, we can expect it to surpass the 1500 hp mark.
The new hardcore version of the Chiron will be built in limited numbers. Apparently, only 20 to 40 copies will be built and Bugatti already has orders for some.
The market for ultra-exclusive collector cars seems to have exploded in the recent past. The Bugatti Divo is limited to just 40 units and I’m sure there are more who would’ve liked to have it in their garage. McLaren is building 106 units of the Speedtail, which seems lot compared to just 5 units of the McLaren BC-03.
