The Bugatti Chiron is the world’s fastest road car

New, 14 comments

The Bugatti Chiron is ready to claim the title of world's fastest car, declared Bugatti President Wolfgang Durheimer at the unveiling of the car today at the Geneva Motor Show.

Though the Chiron is electronically limited to 261 mph in road mode, with all the restrictions lifted the car should go considerably faster — though Bugatti won't share what it thinks that highest speed will be.

The Chiron will produce 1,500 horsepower from its 8-liter, W16 engine, and will move from 0-60 mph in less than 2.5 seconds. And it'll do all that with diamonds in the speakers, so your tunes will sound good as you tear across the planet at mind-boggling speeds.

You can check out my colleague's Bugatti Chiron reveal post for much more about the car itself, but I saw the Chiron unveiled this morning for the world's press in Geneva and, trust me, it looks as amazing in person as it does in these pictures.
