2017 Bugatti Chiron 01

In the supercar world, a V-8 will cut it, a V-10 is better, and a V-12 is the most desired engine. Then there’s Bugatti, the luxury car manufacturer that laughs are your measly V-12 and ups the ante to 16 cylinders.

Bugatti started its 16-cylinder, ungodly power onslaught in 2005 with the Veyron. The car’s W-16 engine put out 987 horsepower initially and eventually spawned variants that reached 1,200 horsepower before it ended production in 2015.

The Veyron’s successor, the Chiron made its debut at the Geneva motor show in March of 2016, and the first production cars are just going to buyers now. That quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W-16 is still mounted midships, but now output is all the way up to 1,480 horsepower and 1,180 pound-feet of torque, which is available starting at 2,000 rpm.

The W-16 sends its power to all four wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission with the largest clutch on the market. That all-wheel-drive system has a front-axle differential with an integrated inter-axle lock and a rear diff with an integrated inter-wheel lock.

With so much power on tap, the Chiron has performance numbers to match. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in under 2.5 seconds, reach 124 mph in less than 6.5 seconds, hit 186 mph in 13.6 seconds or less, and reach a top speed of at least 261 mph. That final figure is electronically limited. No doubt, we will see attempts at record top speed runs in the future.
