However, this isn’t of some great importance, since the most important thing about it will be its performance. The new Chiron will come with impressive powertrain which will now be capable of producing an amazing 1,500 horsepower.

2016 Bugatti Chiron Appearance
The 2016 Bugatti Chiron will be designed in a similar fashion as the Bugatti Veyron. The new model will come with some smaller changes, but they will not be drastic. The model will be refreshed, but there is really not much place for redesign as the model’s performance dictates the way the car must be designed. In addition, the new Chiron’s body will be mostly made out of lightweight materials. The manufacturer used carbon fiber and aluminum wherever possible in order to shed some weight. This will have a positive impact on the model’s performance, but it will probably affect its price as well.
Performance and Specs
The 2016 Bugatti Chiron will come with an impressive performance. The new model will use a far more powerful powertrain setup than the current Veyron. Reportedly, the new model will come as a hybrid. Yes, you read it correctly. The manufacturer decided to add an electric motor to the model’s power setup in order to provide better performance. Before you get disappointed with this news (in case you’re not a green car fan), you should know more about its specs. The new model will come with an electric motor, as we mentioned, and a quad-turbo 8.0-liter W12 engine with direct injection. This setup is said to generate a fascinating 1,500 horsepower approximately. Compared to the Veyron’s 1184 horsepower, this is truly a fantastic improvement, so regardless of your hybrid-opinion, you must admit this is a good powertrain solution. As for the transmission, the new Chiron will use a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox which will send power to all four wheels. Moreover, the new will definitely be the fastest car in the world. It will accelerate to 60 mph from a standstill in just 2.3 seconds, while its top speed is set at an unbelievable figure – 286 mph.
2016 Bugatti Chiron Premiere
The 2016 Bugatti Chiron will be presented at one of the biggest auto shows next year, but its exact premiere still hasn’t been set. The model will be more expensive than the current Veyron and it will be released as a limited edition. Reportedly, there will be only 300 coupe versions and 150 targa top models. Although the premiere of the Chiron will happen next year, it probably won’t hit the streets before 2016.
