French high-performance luxury automobile manufacturer Bugatti, has unveiled its next supercar the ‘Chiron’ named after legendary French racer Louis Chiron, who was Bugatti’s golden boy back in the 1920s.
Expected to have its world premiere at the 86th Geneva Motor Show in 2016, Bugatti says the Chiron will continue the company’s legacy of producing the “world’s most powerful, fastest, most luxurious and most exclusive production super sports cars.”
Though exact performance specs remain top secret, word on the street is, the car will pack a whopping 1200 hp.
The super exclusive hypercar is only being shown to VVIP customers (read Arab sheikhs and Russian oligarchs) and the response is claimed to be ‘outstanding’ with more than 100 orders already been received.
“Our order book is already well filled,” Bugatti Chief Wolfgang Duerheimer said in a statement. “And that’s despite the fact that our customers haven’t had the chance to experience the car’s fantastic performance yet.”
The Chiron is currently undergoing testing with a number of prototypes already on the road.
