In September 2019, Bugatti unveiled one of the most hardcore production supercars to ever come to the automotive industry. The Chiron Super Sport 300+ costs almost $ 3.9 million and is a very exclusive and limited entry into the world of the most extreme and powerful vehicles out there. I wonder what it looks like when it’s cold? Here is the answer.
A relatively old video on Youtube, the one we somehow missed, takes us to a rainy spot where a shiny Chiron Super Sport 300+ is parked, apparently at a Bonhams event, judging by the flags around the car. The short video simply shows us the supercar starting its engine cold, likely after a long night out, and it’s a sight to behold.
In fact, there is not much to look here, because the pictures only show us the rear of the Chiron Super Sport 300+. But there’s a lot to hear, so be sure to play the clip with your headphones on. The stronger the better.
For the first few seconds, the 8.0-liter W16 engine sounds like an old airplane engine. We’re obviously not Bugatti mechanics or engine makers, but you can almost hear it pulling a few cylinders at first and seconds later it looks like all 16 cylinders are running full blast. It’s a glorious symphony of grunts.
As a reminder, the Chiron Super Sport 300+ has an improved version of Bugatti’s 8.0-liter quad-turbo engine. Its maximum power is 1,578 horsepower (1,161 kilowatts), sufficient for a top speed of 273 miles per hour (440 kilometers per hour). While the car is electronically limited to this speed, customers can order the optional car without a limiter and potentially hit the record of 304.773 mph (490.484 km / h) set by Andy Wallace in 2019.
