Last week a modified Bugatti Chiron was the first hypercar ever to drive faster than 300 mph. As a tribute to this achievement Bugatti is now offering the Chiron Super Sport 300+ – a special edition limited to only 30 units and visually based on the record-breaking car.
Under the hood of the Chiron Super Sport 300+ Bugatti placed an updated version of the quad-turbo 8.0-liter W16 engine that delivers a total of 1,578 horsepower. Of course the supercar will not hit a top speed of 300 mph, but it will be limited to only 273 mph.
When you will compare the Super Sport 300+ with a standard Chiron, you will easily spot the differences. The front corners now feature Air Curtains, the wheel arch gets air outlets – all these updates made for a proper cooling. The rear end is longer – hence the name Longtail – and allows the laminar flow to pass over the vehicle for longer to thus reduce the aerodynamic stall by over 40 percent.
The entire body is made of exposed, jet-black carbon fibre and is combined with racing stripes in Jet Orange. The same theme continues on the interior, where customers will enjoy a combination of black carbon, leather and Alcantara in Beluga Black, complemented by colour highlights in Jet Orange. Of course, unlike the car used to set the record, the Chiron Super Sport 300+ also offers a seat for the passenger.
“After the incredible speed record of more than 300 miles per hour, which we were the first series manufacturer to achieve, we’re now offering our customers the Super Sport 300+ – a very special edition model and the fastest Bugatti ever”, says Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti. “But the Chiron Super Sport 300+ is more than just the fastest series-production sports car in the world. It is a testimony to Bugatti’s technical refinement, masterly workmanship and enormous attention to detail.”
The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ will be limited to only 30 units, each carrying a price of 3.5 million euro. Customers will start receiving cars in mid 2021.
