Bugatti Chiron versus Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse
Despite accumulating financial burden over dieselgate at parenting VW, French supercar maker Bugatti didn't wait for long to introduce the successor of its speed-record breaking Veyron model line.
The successor is named Chiron, after legendary Bugatti racing driver Louis Chiron, not the centaur from Greek mythology. Comparing side views of two supercars we see a striking resemblance in door line and side-vent/side-skirt curve designs. Which makes us believe Bugatti used the Veyron's body to build the new Chiron; although other aspects of the design don't echo the predecessors specific design elements. Interior has gotten a lot more fancier with and stylish, with a huge broken oval at the center resembling the letter C.
Presented in a coupe form, Chiron is powered with same W16 engine as Veyron Vitesse, but thanks to the turbochargers it now generates 300 more horsepower and 100 lb-ft of more torque. That's enough for Chiron to reach 60 mph in under 2.5 seconds.
The new Bugatti is longer, wider, and taller than the old one, but mainly thanks to the use of lightweight materials like titanium and carbon it has managed to gain only 5 kg of extra weight.
