The Bugatti Veyron has been out for roughly ten years.  Through its’ many iterations, the general goal has been to be a leader of top speed while providing the ultimate in terms of speed, power, comfort, and exotic looks.  Well, at the Geneva Auto Show, the latest from Bugatti has been revealed, the Bugatti Chiron.

Road and Track helped provide the specifications for the car.

Sporting 1500BHP and a limited top speed of 261 miles per hour, the latest from Bugatti has similar styling cues to the Bugatti Veyron.  What else has changed?  The car also now has 1180-lb.ft. of torque.  However, the engine dimensions have not changed.  The Chiron still sports an 8.0 liter, W16 with quad-turbocharging.  Keep in mind, while this is a tremendous output for a similar powerplant to the Veyron, it is not the fastest Bugatti in the fleet.  Other cars like the Koenigsegg One:1 and the Hennessey Venom have sported top speeds well over 270 miles per hour.  Bugatti achieves the raw, brutal force with a surprising amount of luxury in terms of noise, vibration, and harshness.  Compared to other vehicles of the hyper car class, the Bugatti Veyron is a library, and the Chiron is expected to achieve a similar type of performance.
