The production process of 30 units of the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ has been completed, and the new owners of the hypercar now have the key to the high-speed engine. This is the latest step for the brand to complete the entire Chiron build of 500 units.
The Super Sport 300+ pays homage to the Chiron running 304.773 miles per hour (490.484 kilometers per hour) around the Ehra-Lessien test track. It features a long tail body for improved aerodynamics. The quad-turbo 8.0-liter W16 engine produces 1,578 horsepower (1,161 kilowatts). The production spec example has a limited top speed of 273 mph (440 kph). Although there are rumors Bugatti added a roll cage and removed the limiter as an option. Each of them has a starting price of €3.5 million.
Bugatti announced the Super Sport 300+ in September 2019. In 2021, the company showcased an initial batch of eight ready-made cars.
The Chiron sold out in January 2022. Bugatti just had to build this car for the customer. This year, the automaker expects to ship at least 80 vehicles.
Bugatti is now looking to the future as part of its merger with Rimac, and the Chiron successor is taking shape. The new model will continue to use a combustion engine but will also be highly electric. We don’t know yet if this is an evolution of the existing W16. The company also promises never-before-seen features.
“The easiest thing for us was to take the Nevera and slam the Bugatti logo on it and call it a day. But I am against it. I’m an electric car guy, but Bugatti still has to have a combustion engine for some. time,” said company boss Mate Rimac in a 2022 interview.
The Chiron successor is reported to debut publicly in 2024. The company’s affluent potential clients can reportedly preview the appearance of this year’s vehicle to build interest in the new product.
