Meet the most exclusive and the rarest Bugatti Chiron ever. The 25 cm longer, 23 kg lighter and the 7 percent quicker Chiron Super Sport is supposedly the holy grail of the entire Bugatti Chiron line-up with its production limited to just 9 examples.
With an electronically limited top speed of 273 mph (that is sort of like the threshold Bugatti guarantees us for an “effortless and safe to control” state) , this trim is capable of catapulting from 0 to 124 mph (200 kmph) in a mere 5.8 seconds!
A 0 to 186 mph (300 kmph) would just need 12.1 seconds and from 0 to a 249 mph the Super Sport is 7 percent quicker than a typical Bugatti Chiron.
The engineers from Molsheim have really pushed it this time, to add their razzmatazz in the hypercar market.
Despite the jet like velocities, the Chiron SS is also focused onto luxury and cosyness. The inside is nothing like a track edition supercar. And that is the selling point of the car. Well Bugatti’s President, says the Super Sport is “the ultimate grand tourer”.
Oh wait, did I forget to mention the speed at which this car switches from the sixth gear to the seventh? 250 mph (403 kmph)! Mathematically, the ‘ultimate grand tourer’ has got a 3.6 percent longer seventh gear than the former Chiron.
Getting to the powertrain, the Chiron SS has an 8.0 litre W16 that churns out a massive 1,578 bhp and 1600 Nm of torque – more or less the same as the Chiron 300+, that Andy Wallace drove, back in 2019 to achieve a record breaking 304 mph.
This one is pegged at a staggering $4 million (€3.2 million), although I would say it’s quite the deal in the Bugatti universe, given the one-off La Voiture Noire is approximately three and a half times the price of a Chiron Super Sport with a less powerful powertrain.
