Performance of Bugatti Chiron

The hypercar accelerates from 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in just 2.4 seconds, 0–200 km/h (0–124 mph) in 6.5 seconds and 0–300 km/h (0–186 mph) in 13.6 seconds.

The Chiron also broke the fastest 0-400-0 km/h record, accelerating in 41.96 seconds; accelerating from 0-400 km/h (249 mph) in 32.6 seconds and then deaccelerating from 400 km/h to zero in 9.36 seconds.

Bugatti Chiron is capable of reaching the top speed of 280 km/h, but it’s electronically limited to 261 mph due to safety limitations, especially tires. No tire company manufactured the tire which can resist such fast speeds for a longer time.

Production of Bugatti Chiron

Bugatti produced only 60 units of Bugatti Chiron in 2016 offering an astonishing price of $2.6 million each. Out of them, half of them were reserved before the release of this supercar by paying an advance deposit of €200,000 before their purchase

Bugatti manufactured Chiron at a small factory in Molsheim, France. The production was a sophisticated process because just 20 employees assembled it by hand from more than 1,800 parts.
