Chiron Bugatti 2018 – Beast On The Road

2018 Bugatti Chiron is supposed to continue straight where its harbinger is gonna leave the scene and, honestly, we cannot wait for that to happen. Bugatti Veyron used to rule the streets as one of the fastest cars ever built, and it still does. For how long, we still do not know, but Italians are preparing its replacement. After Veyron finally goes to a well-deserved retirement.


Power-Train Of Chiron 2018

  • Engine:  W16
  • Horsepower @ RPM:  1500
  • Torque @ RPM:  1100
  • Displacement:  8.0 L
  • 0-60 time:  2.5 sec. (Est.)
  • Top Speed:  288 mph (Est.)


Style most likely will not change, and 2018 Bugatti Chiron should be a reflection of Veyron in a way. This means that we will see plenty of gracious lines and curves which we are so used to when Bugatti is concerned. One major difference might be vertical swinging doors which are not chosen only because of styling reasons, but for practicality as well. Firstly, there is plenty of time for some tech upgrades until 2018, and secondly, the company might change their strategy by then as well.

Expect the whole specialty list to be carried over, and of course, updated accordingly. Some new systems might find their way to 2018 Bugatti Chiron as well, but let’s leave it at that for the time being. Concept used to be powered by 6.3L W-18 engine which delivered 555 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque.

Now, after Chiron had completed a full circle, it ought to be powered by Veyron’s own 8.0L W-16 engine with 4 turbochargers and exorbitant figures of 1500 hp and 1100 lb-ft of torque. This time 2-door coupe will get torque vectoring and 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. Thanks to all these details, Chiron should reach 0 to 62 mph in 2.5 seconds and top speed of 288 mph.


2018 Bugatti Chiron faces a tough job of walking in its harbinger’s footsteps. Veyron was branded as the car of the century by Top Gear, but, nevertheless impressive that might sound, Chiron will not be that far off from Veyron.
