Bugatti Reveals The Ultimate Chiron Iteration With The 1,578HP Super Sport

When Bugatti attaches the name “Super Sport” to a model, you know the brand means business. After all, it was the Veyron Super Sport that held the production car top speed record from 2010 to 2017. Now, it’s Bugatti’s current flagship Chiron that’s getting the Super Sport treatment, and it is predictably impressive.

The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport receives a number of upgrades over the standard Chiron. For starters, the body has been altered for maximum aerodynamic performance at speeds over 249 mph with a significantly longer tail, a reconfigured exhaust architecture, and front wing vents inspired by the EB 110 Super Sport of the 1990s. The massive W16 engine has also been tweaked for more power and higher revs. The Super Sport puts out 1,578 HP compared to the standard Chiron’s 1,479, and its 1,180 lb.-ft. of torque is now available up to 7,000 rpm rather than 6,000. This adds up to a jaw-dropping 0-186 mph time of just 12.1 seconds, and a 7% increase in its 0-249 mph acceleration. Those are significant boosts when you’re already talking about one of the fastest cars ever made, but don’t expect the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport to make a run at a new world record in the future. The car’s top speed is electronically limited to 273 mph. We suppose that’s fast enough.
