The 2021 Bugatti Chiron family is multi-faceted. Inspired by this versatility, we have created a double-sided navigation experience to present you with BUGATTI’s latest masterpiece from all perspectives. We wish you a splendid journey.

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.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

All 2021 Bugatti Chiron models are motivated by an 8.0-liter 16-cylinder powerplant. This beast of an engine employs four turbochargers to generate a mighty 1500 horsepower and 1180 lb-ft of torque. Bugatti claims that the Chiron makes the dash from zero to 60 mph in a mere 2.3 seconds, and it has a top speed of 261 mph.

If the Chiron’s standard engine doesn’t quench your thirst for speed, step up to the Chiron Super Sport 300+. This model is equipped with a slightly more potent version of the base powerplant, and it produces 1578 horsepower. Piloted by factory test driver Andy Wallace, a model with specs almost identical to those of the Chiron Super Sport 300+ logged a record-setting 304.773 mph test-track run. With every model in the Chiron lineup, power is sent to all four wheels by a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

As one would expect from a car with a 1500-hp engine, the 2021 Bugatti Chiron won’t win any points for being eco-friendly. According to the EPA, the 2021 Chiron achieves mileage (we hesitate to use the words “fuel economy”) of up to 9 mpg city and 14 mpg highway. The Pur Sport sees both figures drop by 1 mpg. We haven’t run the Chiron on our 75-mph highway fuel-economy route, which is part of our extensive testing regimen, so we can’t evaluate its real-world mpg.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

The 2021 Bugatti Chiron‘s exterior features a C-shaped design cue carved into its side panels, and this element is also present within the car’s cabin. It’s reflected in the graceful curve of a partition that separates driver and passenger. Bugatti has dressed the Chiron’s cabin in top-of-the-line materials, and the interior bears space-age styling elements that add whimsical charm. A flat-bottomed steering wheel greets the driver, and Bugatti claims the glossy center console is made from a single piece of solid aluminum. With the Chiron, it’s best to pack light. The trunk provides just two cubic feet of cargo space.

Infotainment and Connectivity

The 2021 Bugatti Chiron‘s singular focus on performance brings with it compromises on the infotainment front. This Bugatti functions much like a race car, and it has the stripped-down tech content to match. There’s no infotainment screen, and features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability aren’t offered. The car’s infotainment amenities are pretty much limited to a sound system and a trip computer. On the plus side, the sound system delivers impeccable sound quality, and it features four tweeters that each utilize a one-carat diamond membrane for precision output. That’s what you’d expect from a car with a price that starts in the millions.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The 2021 Bugatti Chiron hasn’t been crash-tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). It’s not offered with commonly available driver-assistance features such as blind-spot monitoring.
