To the surprise of no one, Bugatti announced today that the Chiron is indeed its Veyron replacement—and the supercar will be making its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
For months, rumor has swirled around the design of the hotly anticipated Chiron, for good reason: The car is expected to have 1,500 horsepower and a top speed of up to 288 mph. “With the Chiron, Bugatti will continue to produce the world’s most powerful, fastest, most luxurious and most exclusive production super sports car,” Bugatti says in its press release.
We all got a glimpse of the car last month when a photographer spotted the magnificent car on an Italian highway, but some lucky “selected customers” have been able to view the Chiron at exclusive preview events which have already led to more than 100 orders. The Chiron is currently in its final stages of development, though, so none of those events actually involved potential customers getting behind the wheel.
