2022 Bugatti Chiron Super Sport unveiled with 440km/h top speed and $5.5 million price tag
The Ultimate Grand Tourisme
Ever since the first CHIRON entered the scene, it has been the embodiment of performance, power, and comfort.
After the CHIRON and CHIRON Sport, the CHIRON Pur Sport showed the ferocious personality of a hyper sports car made for corners and lateral agility. Now, with the CHIRON Super Sport, we are following our long tradition of combining extreme high speed with absolute luxury, to offer a whole new dimension of the BUGATTI experience.
With its longtail streamlined design and the fabulous performance of its 1.600 PS, the CHIRON Super Sport represents the essence of what we have learned and developed in recent years and honors the Super Sport brand nine decades after its birth.
The CHIRON Super Sport is the ultimate Grand Tourisme, delivering brutal performance in total comfort.
The CHIRON family is multi-faceted. Inspired by this versatility, we have created a double-sided navigation experience to present you BUGATTI’s latest masterpiece from all perspectives. We wish you a splendid journey.
For the CHIRON Super Sport, BUGATTI developed a new streamlined longtail silhouette, driven by the philosophy Form follows performance.
“Over 400 km/h (249 mph), a car must offer a lot of downforce, but with the lowest possible aerodynamic drag. The body must therefore be particularly efficient and streamlined,” explains Frank Heyl, Deputy Design Director at BUGATTI. The extended rear end, known as the ‘longtail,’ gives the CHIRON Super Sport a whole new character, not only visually, but also technically.
With increased power, acceleration, and top speed, the BUGATTI CHIRON Super Sport delivers an even more intense and fascinating driving experience.
Technical maxims steered the whole development, because the demands on the new hyper sports car are very high: at 440 km/h (273 mph), it must be easy to control.
Despite the immense power and enormous longitudinal acceleration, the CHIRON Super Sport drives comfortably and harmoniously like no other hyper sports car.
“The CHIRON Super Sport is incredibly fast, drives very precisely and easily at high speeds, and is at the same time very comfortable, even on longer tours. It’s a breathtaking mix and a great feeling to drive fast in the car,” explains BUGATTI’s Pilote Officiel Andy Wallace.
“The acceleration of a CHIRON cannot be compared with anything else. With the even more powerful CHIRON Super Sport, the incredible boost never seems to end. It is always moving forward.”
The CHIRON Super Sport delivers a unique sensorial experience, made of staggering technology and unparalleled performance.
