New Bugatti Chiron Makes 1,500 HP and Looks Pretty, Too

New Bugatti Chiron Makes 1,500 HP and Looks Pretty, Too

Bugatti calls dibs on putting the ‘speed’ into the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend. The latest and greatest Bugatti Chiron is making its UK debut at England’s biggest car show.

The festival features a paddock of supercars all waiting to show their stuff on the legendary hillclimb on the Goodwood grounds in southern England. Andy Wallace, a Bugatti driver since 2011, will do the honors of driving the Chiron up the hill.

“It is a great honor for me to drive this exceptional vehicle at such a fantastic event, especially since this will be its premiere in my home country. I’m sure this will be a highlight of the festival,” Wallace says.

The sports car packs 1,500 horses and comes with the same W12 engine as the Veyron.

If you want to know what it’s like hitting the track in one of these beasts, check out Bugatti’s video below.

The model maintains the Chiron’s crazy styling cues with large side air intakes and the crazy arching silver edged line around the side doors. Its signature Bugatti puppy nose like front fascia remains along with large air intakes and a ground hugging design. (Bugatti notes in a press release that the model you see in the photos below is a near-production vehicle.)

Only 500 models will be built and Bugatti’s already received over 200 order for them.

The first model will arrive in the hands of the lucky drivers this fall.
