BBC TopGear Magazine Awards has named the world’s most powerful, exclusive, luxurious and fastest production super sports car, Bugatti Chiron, as the Hypercar of the Year. Here’s how jury justified its decision: “The thrust from rest to 100 mph (161 km/h) is insane but the way it bulldozes its way through the next 100 mph is spooky, and it just keeps going.”
The Chiron is designed to meet the highest possible demands in terms of luxury, comfort, everyday drivability and durability. It combines the best in all these areas and embodies a harmonious concept that makes it a unique super sports car. With a power output of 1,500 HP, unprecedented for production vehicles, an exceptionally high torque value of 1,600 Nm between 2,000 and 6,000 rpm and a wide variety of technical innovations, the Chiron sets new standards in every respect. This is the result of the legendary and unique eight-litre W16 engine that has been newly developed by Bugatti. In combination with the four new, larger turbochargers that are controlled by the Bugatti two-stage turbocharging, and a large number of other technical refinements and innovations, maximum performance is available constantly and can be easily controlled at all speeds.
One and a half years after its world debut at the 86th Geneva International Motor Show, more than 300 vehicles have already been sold. Only 500 of these exceptional cars are to be made.
To date, BBC TopGear Magazine has only given the Hypercar of the Year award five times since it was first presented in 2006. Bugatti is the only brand to have won the award twice. The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 was named the Hypercar of 2006.
