Introducing the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+

By Paul Joseph

Among the array of lavish cars on display at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show currently taking place in Germany is the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+.

An evolution of the standard Bugatti Chiron – which broke the production-car speed record just last month – the augmented model sports a naked carbon fibre construction on the outside, while its styling is sleeker with a more aero-efficient streamliner bodywork.

The tail section also features an extension, giving it the appearance of a longtail. It is powered by a similarly tuned engine as the standard Chiron; with its 1,500 horsepower, quad-turbocharged, 8.0-liter W16 engine massaged to churn out 1600 horsepower.

This power is channelled to all four wheels via a seven-speed, dual-clutch all-wheel-drive system. But the most crucial part of the record-breaking car is its newly developed tires by Michelin that was tested at up to 317 mph.

The ride height of the hypercar has also been put back to standard to allow the car to be used on roads and the speed is electronically limited, just like the standard Chiron, to maintain safety.

Only 30 examples of the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ will be built, with pricing starting at $3.5 million.
