Bugatti's New 'Chiron Noire' Special Edition Gives Buyers A $3-Million Choice Of Black, Black Or Black

Bugatti's New 'Chiron Noire' Special Edition Gives Buyers A $3-Million Choice Of Black, Black Or Black

The worst part about buying yet another supercar with my monthly allowance from Mom and Dad, which they give me as part of our agreement that I leave them be to day drink and flirt with the young tennis instructors at the country club or whatever, isn’t that I’ll have to forgo my usual expenses—a private jet to the islands, giving my poorer friends a vacation home as their wedding gift—for...

The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ Is A $4 Million Salute To Breaking The 300 MPH Barrier

The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ Is A $4 Million Salute To Breaking The 300 MPH Barrier

Recently, Bugatti went out and did what many thought couldn’t be done with modern tire technology: It broke the 300-mph barrier , hitting nearly 305 mph in a “near production” Chiron plastered in orange stripes. And because success means nothing without commercial gain, the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ is here to commemorate the occasion—all for about $4 million each.

Come one, come all,...

Time's Running Out to Buy Yourself a New Bugatti Chiron

Time's Running Out to Buy Yourself a New Bugatti Chiron

We know, we know, $3 million is an investment. It takes time to decide whether you want to put seven figures toward something, but time isn’t always a given. Time certainly isn’t a given with the 1,500-horsepower Bugatti Chiron, which has less than 100 build slots left.

You’d better get to thinking already.

Car and Driver reports that “less than 100” is the figure straight from Bugatti, which...

Your Bugatti Chiron Has Been Recalled

Your Bugatti Chiron Has Been Recalled

Good day sir or madam. Do excuse me for bearing bad news, but it’s come to my attention that your Bugatti Chiron has been recalled. You will soon be contacted by a team of “Flying Doctors,” who will handle everything for you. Because that’s the kind of care you get when you spend over $1 million on a car.

There are only two vehicles potentially involved in Bugatti’s most recent Chiron recall ,...

New Bugatti Chiron Divo Will Be Faster And Handle Better In Ways No One Will Ever Use

New Bugatti Chiron Divo Will Be Faster And Handle Better In Ways No One Will Ever Use

Owners of the Bugatti Chiron already know the heady thrill that comes with knowing that the car kept immobile in their air conditioned garages is the fastest in the world, if they were ever to drive it, which they won’t. Now, 40 very lucky money-gorged fools can spend almost six million dollars on a new version of the Chiron that will be faster and handle better, in the incredibly unlikely...

Lazy Automaker Finally Builds 100th Car

Lazy Automaker Finally Builds 100th Car

Building cars is hard , as we all know (some more than others ). There’s a lot more to the process than just slapping something together, handing it off to a guy in an ugly polo shirt who says things like “What’s it gonna take for me to get you into this today?”, and and calling it a day. Bugatti, which is no stranger to building cars, recently celebrated making its 100th Chiron, Good going,...

Paying $10,000 For A Bugatti Chiron Model Engine Seems Rather Silly

Paying $10,000 For A Bugatti Chiron Model Engine Seems Rather Silly

Life is full of silly things, a lot of which would be cool if they weren’t so silly. Take this model of a Bugatti Chiron engine: It’d be a great conversation piece on your LED-backlit display wall of rare, expensive automotive memorabilia dusted with diamonds for extra shine, but maybe not for $10,000.

Then again, if a display wall dusted with diamonds is your kind of thing, maybe a starting...

The Chiron Is So Fast Bugatti Had To Use Another Chiron To Film Its Record 249 MPH Run

The Chiron Is So Fast Bugatti Had To Use Another Chiron To Film Its Record 249 MPH Run

The Bugatti Chiron is fast. It’s really fast, if you want specifics—so fast Bugatti puts a speed limiter on it because modern tires can’t handle the pressure speeds near 300 mph would put on them. So, naturally, to film its record 249-mph Chiron run , Bugatti had to use something just as fast: another Chiron.

Duh. There go my whimsical theories that all of the video production on this nearly...

The Bugatti Chiron Just Ripped From Zero To 249 MPH Back To Zero In A Record 42 Seconds

The Bugatti Chiron Just Ripped From Zero To 249 MPH Back To Zero In A Record 42 Seconds

If you’re a hypercar company, impressing clients with big numbers is kind of the name of the game (after all, this segment is all about bragging rights). If you’re Bugatti, and your $3 million Chironhasn’t achieved the ultimate top-speed bragging right yet , you’ve got to try other stunts—like this zero to 249 mph back to zero run. You know, to keep things interesting.

It will be a while ...

BREAKING: Fast Car Is Fast

BREAKING: Fast Car Is Fast

When I first learned of the Bugatti Chiron, the Veyron successor, my immediate thought was that it would probably be a really slow car. Thank God a tweet helped me turn that ass-backwards belief around.

According to Evo road test editor Dan Prosser, the Chiron will allegedly go from zero to 250 MPH and then back down to zero in under a minute.

That’s, like, really really fast! Who would have...

Here's The First Bugatti Chiron To End Up In A Ditch

Here's The First Bugatti Chiron To End Up In A Ditch

It’s always an exciting day when the first absurdly exclusive supercar ends up in a ditch, or perhaps a lake . It give us filthy poors a nice helping of schadenfreude, and it gives the company great PR because it shows not every car they sell ends up immobile in a climate-controlled garage. Some really do get driven hard! Into ditches!

This photo of a wrecked Bugatti Chiron does seem to show...

Here's The Bugatti Chiron's Tacked-On American-Market Bumper Lumps

Here's The Bugatti Chiron's Tacked-On American-Market Bumper Lumps

Bugatti is taking part in an old and beautiful tradition for European supercars, where the versions that get sold in the United States get adorned with massive black chunks of rubber. This has been happening since the mid 1970s, and it’s touching to see the practice continuing to this day. We finally got to inspect the Chiron’s U.S.-only bumper tumors in person, and it’s humbling.

The Bugatti Chiron Looks Much Better Than The Veyron, Is Just As Stupid

The Bugatti Chiron Looks Much Better Than The Veyron, Is Just As Stupid

Chiron , the Bugatti Veyron’s long-anticipated successor to the throne of Bestest Car In The Whole World, is finally here. Like its predecessor, it’s a technical triumph, a pinnacle of automotive engineering, and I think it looks much better, too. Too bad it’s still completely fucking stupid.

Supercars Are Stupid

There. I said it. Supercars, though incredibly engineered, beautiful, and...

The First Design Of The Bugatti Chiron Was Just A Giant Bow Tie

Carfection and Roadshow’s Alex Goy got a golden ticket to get a look at the design history of the all-new Bugatti Chiron, and one of the biggest revelations is that it was originally meant to look just like a giant bow tie.

That is until Bugatti’s board of directors got a look and called for something else to be done, according to the report:

The “eight eyes” look, as it’s known internally,...

What It's Like Developing One Of The Most Technologically Advanced Supercars Ever

What It's Like Developing One Of The Most Technologically Advanced Supercars Ever

The Bugatti Veyron was a world-beater when it debuted in 2006, representing the very best automotive engineering the world had ever seen. Developing a sequel—the Chiron—that could best such a giant was a staggeringly difficult task; here’s how Bugatti did it.

The Bugatti Chiron is a 1,478 horsepower carbon-fiber monster that—if given enough space—can sprint over 250 mph, and snap your neck...
