The Bugatti Chiron is a mid-engined hypercar developed by Bugatti as the successor to the Bugatti Veyron.
Introduced at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the Bugatti Chiron is named after the Monegasque driver Louis Chiron. Production was limited to 500 units, with the first 200 units being sold before the first delivery of the car.
The Chiron uses the same 8.0 L (7,993 cm3; 487.8 cu in) quad-turbocharged W16 from the Bugatti Veyron, but heavily updated. Power is rated at 1479 hp (1103 kW) and torque 1180 ft·lb (1600 N·m) starting from 2,000 rpm. Similar to the Veyron, the Chiron has a carbon fiber body structure, independent suspension, and a Haldex AWD system. The carbon fiber body has a stiffness of 50,000 N·m per degree.
The Chiron is mid-engined and has its power sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic tranmission. The weight is estimated at 4398 lb (1995 kg), resulting in a power-to-weight ratio of 741 hp (553 kW) per tonne or 2.97 lb (1.35 kg) per horsepower. By comparison, the original Veyron makes only 496 hp (370 kW) per tonne.[note 1] The Chiron has a length of 446.3 cm (175.7 in), width of 203.7 cm (80.2 in), and a height of 121.2 cm (47.7 in).
The Chiron can accelerate from 0 - 100 km/h (0 - 62 mph) in 2.4 seconds, 0 - 200 km/h (0 - 124 mph) in 6.5 seconds, and 0 - 300 km/h (0 - 186 mph) in 13.6 seconds. Electronically limited to 420 km/h (261 mph), the Chiron has an anticipated full top speed of 464 km/h (288 mph) that cannot be tested due to the lack of existing tires that can survive 450 km/h (280 mph). The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport makes 296 hp (221 kW) less than the Chiron.
The Chiron used to hold the world record for fastest 0-400-0 km/h (0-249-0 mph) time of 41.96 seconds, being beaten by the Koenigsegg Agera RS, the latter doing so in 36.44 seconds and later 33.29. At the Volkswagen test oval in Ehra Lessien, Germany, on August 2, 2019, the Bugatti Chiron hit 490.484 km/h (304.773 mph), making the Chiron the first production vehicle to go over the 300 mph mark and the 400 km/h mark. To commemorate the historic run, Bugatti made 30 vehicles of a special limited edition of the Chiron Sport (the high-performance iteration of the regular Chiron): the Chiron Super Sport 300+. The world record car is finished in the signature Bugatti world record livery: jet black exposed carbon fiber with jet orange stripes.
In 2020 at Molsheim, France, at the Bugatti Atelier, the ultimate track-focused iteration of the Chiron, the Pur Sport, was released. It is different from the regular Chiron by having a fixed rear wing, more aggressive headlights, new wheel rims, and 3D printed exhaust tips.
Asphalt Street Storm Racing
The Bugatti Chiron appears in Asphalt Street Storm Racing as a Class S car. It was first launched as a 4 day Champions Clash between June 30 - July 3, 2017 as a car prize for the top 10 players.
The Bugatti Chiron has the following statistics:
- Starting Rank: 559
- BHP: 1,458
- Grip: 11.00
- Acceleration: 2.6
- Weight: 1,995.00
- Final Rank: 588
Similar to the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, the Chiron is built with extreme power outputs at the expense of weight. The Chiron is the second heaviest car in the game at 1,995 kg, only lighter than the Charger's 2,075 kg. In addition to its 0-100 km/h being the slowest for Class S, it also has the least amount of grip, contrary to what its weight and all-wheel drive layout would suggest.
This comes at a cost of initial acceleration and speed as the gear ratios for 1st-6th gear are short. While 7th gear is significantly longer and allows the Chiron to reach its high top speed, its longer gear ratio limits acceleration and makes it vulnerable to its more balanced rivals. Due to the uneven gears and slow acceleration, the Chiron will struggle in 400m races, even if Torque Boost is active, more so if the weather condition is wet or snowy.
Overall, the Chiron is largely a collectors car as its questionable performance means that players driving it are more likely to lose races, given the random nature of the game in choosing the race conditions.
The gear ratios for the Bugatti Chiron are now more evenly spaced but still retains its top speed and is now capable of a 10.7 in 800m races.
Asphalt 9: Legends
The Bugatti Chiron appears as a high-end Class S car with the following rank statistics:
- Staring rank: 3,577 ( 60)
- rank: 3,730
- rank: 3,910 ( 13)
- rank: 4,101 ( 16)
- rank: 4,302 ( 25)
- rank: 4,534 ( 38)
- rank: 4,755 ( 48)
The Bugatti Chiron is the 4th fastest car in the game, with 261 mph (420 km/h), only slower than the TRION NEMESIS' 269 mph (434 km/h), Koenigsegg Regera's 273 mph (440 km/h) and Koenigsegg Jesko's 300 mph (484 km/h). However, the Chiron can still compete as all three cars have short nitro durations. While the Chiron's steering is quite stiff, it has a very tight drift radius, even at low upgrade levels.
Despite being slower than the Koenigsegg Regera, Trion Nemesis, and Koenigsegg Jesko, the Chiron can be useful in both events and Multiplayer if one can make use of the car's high top speed and excellent drift radius properly.
After the King of the Fall Update, blueprints for the Bugatti Chiron can be obtained if the player has a level 18 garage.
- Main article: Bugatti Chiron (Special Event)
Between December 20, 2018, and January 12, 2019, a Bugatti Chiron Special Event and Leaderboard were available with up to 90 Chiron blueprints being obtainable.
The Special Event was controversial as the event required two of the previous Unleashed cars (Ferrari J50, and Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport), as well as two then-unreleased cars, Maserati Alfieri and McLaren 570S Spider. Cars below the required rank could not be used as well. In addition, the Bugatti Chiron packs cost 900 for 10 and 90 for 1; 150 and 15 more than regular Unleashed car packs. As a result, the following special event car, the Koenigsegg Regera, featured a Car Hunt segment for the Vencer Sarthe and an ability to obtain Apollo N blueprints from watching ads, in addition to obtaining both using tokens, but there were no Regera-specific car packs; Car-specific Packs for a Special Event car would not return until Lamborghini Veneno's event.
Between May 31 and June 7, 2019, Bugatti Chiron specific packs were available in the shop.
