With the 304.77 mph (490.48 km/h) Chiron Super Sport 300+, Bugatti broke the 300 mph production barrier for production automobiles. the Chiron Super Sport 300+, a limited-edition special edition based on the specifically modified Chiron that set a new peak speed record of 304mph in 2019.
The £2.75 million Super Sport, on the other hand, put a greater focus on rolling smoothness. Whereas the Super Sport 300+ was marketed as a lightweight and primarily performance-oriented vehicle, the new Super Sport maintains faithful to Bugatti legacy.
In essence, the Super Sport delivers the best of both worlds: physics-defying performance without sacrificing comfort. If it seems like an appealing combination, one of the 60 Bugattis will cost $3.9 million plus taxes.
That makes the Super Sport twice as popular as the 300+, which appears to be donating its slippery bodywork, including the extended tail section that helps generate enough downforce that the Bugatti can retract the multi-position rear wing in Top Speed mode while still maintaining adequate stability.
Circular vents on the front fenders inspired by the Bugatti EB110 and dual exhaust tailpipes inspired by the 1990s supercar are carried over from the 300+, while the five-Y spoke aluminum wheels are distinctive to the Super Sport. The Pur Sport also comes with optional magnesium rims.
The interior mixes comfort and performance aspects. For example, you'll discover a mix of natural components like leather and polished metal, as well as performance materials like carbon fiber.
The Chiron's iconic 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W-16 engine provides power, albeit output has been increased to 1,578 horsepower (1,600 in metric numbers) and 1599 Nm of torque rather than the regular 1,480-hp rating. The Chiron Super Sport is also outfitted with a custom pair of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires with a top speed of 317 mph.
The Super Sport, which has had its turbochargers, oil pump, and cylinder heads modified, can accelerate from 0-124mph in 5.8 seconds and is 7 percent faster to 400kph than the normal Chiron.
The chassis has been extensively reworked to match the car's new design and dual purpose. The steering and dampers, for example, have been stiffened for increased high-speed stability and better turning behavior, while the customized Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires are supposed to deliver greater stiffness and smoothness than the Pur Sport tires.
Bugatti says that these tires are the only ones in the world capable of driving at 500kph on a constant basis.
