Revealed at the Geneva Motor Show on February 29, 2016, the Bugatti Chiron marked the dawn of a new era in automotive performance and luxury. A successor to the legendary Veyron, the Chiron was designed to exceed the high standards set by its predecessor, and it did so with remarkable prowess.

With an astonishing 1,480 horsepower and 1,475 lb-ft of torque generated by its eight-liter, sixteen-cylinder W-engine, the Chiron epitomized engineering excellence. A few months post-debut, the Chiron made a memorable appearance at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, fascinating onlookers with a blistering lap at 380 kph on the main straight before the race commenced.

Throughout its eight-year production run, the Chiron evolved through several impressive iterations, peaking in 2019 with the Chiron Super Sport 300+ prototype, which reached a record-breaking speed of 304.773 mph. The Chiron lineup featured six distinct versions: Chiron, Chiron Sport, Chiron Pur Sport, Chiron Super Sport, Chiron Super Sport 300+, and Les Légendes du Ciel.

Notably, the Chiron was the first production car to achieve 1,500 PS and to surpass the 300-mph barrier, setting new benchmarks for automotive excellence. Its farewell, marked by the final model ‘L’Ultime’ (The Ultimate), honors its legacy and paves the way for Bugatti’s future innovations.
