Earlier this month on 4 April 2022, Bugatti released news that the Chiron Super Sport units are now rolling out of the Molsheim Atelier.
The hyper sports car was first revealed back in June 2021, and following that was an intense, multi-year development and testing program. Build slots for the automobile marvel have all been reserved with an extensive waiting list.

Touted as “the embodiment of supreme aerodynamic efficiency,” each carbon fibre surface has been pored over to extract high performance without compromise. Its longtail silhouette prominently distinguishes the derivative within the Chiron family. At the same time, the Chiron Super Sport did not neglect luxury and comfort within the cabin either.
The Chiron Super Sport’s beating heart generates 1,600 PS due to a thoroughly overhauled version of Bugatti’s famous 8.0-litre W16 engine. It can reach up to 440 km/h effortlessly and is currently the most powerful pure-combustion production car from a heritage automaker.
The manufacturer’s expert engineers developed and fitted larger quad-turbochargers, along with an enhanced oil pump, cylinder head, and valve train. According to Robb Report, the hyper sports car can accelerate from zero to 124 mph in 5.8 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 273 mph, which makes the Chiron Super Sport one of the fastest production vehicles of all time.
In enabling total confidence at top speed, Bugatti worked incredibly hard on the car’s chassis and suspension — the steering was revised, its electronically controlled chassis returned, and harder springs were added to ensure complete stability.

Christophe Piochon, president of Bugatti Automobiles, commented: “It’s extremely exciting to be witnessing the first customer units of the Chiron Super Sport come together within our Atelier. Hearing brand new 8.0-liter W16 engines fire up for the first time, knowing that they are soon to become a centerpiece of our customers’ collections across the globe is a personal highlight.”
