The Bugatti Veyron replacement, called Chiron, will be revealed for the public at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show and to journalists in February 29. But we already know who will be the owner of the first Chiron to leave the factory. It will be Michel Perridon, a Dutch businessman that already owns not one, but three Bugatti Veyron units! This is what the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf has released today, at least.
The newspaper uses an image of the Vision Gran Turismo Concept to create the picture you see above. The headlights will be different, as videos of the prototypes of the hypercar have already revealed. All potential buyers have already been contacted and have seen the vehicle in person, so it will be no surprise for them to see the final model. The ones that decided to buy the Chiron had to leave a refundable 200,000 euro deposit in order not to lose the chance to have it.
Preliminary information state the car will have the same 8.0 W16 engine that was used by the Veyron, but with an increased power, close to 1,100 kW. Two of its four turbocharger are said to be electric, what will decrease (if not finish at all) any turbo lag and help it save fuel. With that kind of power, the Chiron will be able to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.3 s and to reach a top speed of over 450 km/h.
