Ever wondered how thirsty a Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport actually is?

LOS ANGELES: The Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport has an 8.0-litre (7,993cc) W16 engine that gets boosted by four turbochargers to produce a whopping 1,479hp, but ever wondered how thirsty it actually is? Try 29.4 litres per 100km.

From a common fuel tank that would hold about 55-litres of fuel, that's not going to help you get very far - about 187km by our calculations based on the consumption figure.

Thankfully, the French carmaker provided a 100-litre tank for its fuel-guzzler, but still...it will only net its owner abut 340km per tank of fuel - even lesser if the pedal meets the metal.

At current fuel prices, the Chiron Pur Sport's 100-litre fuel tank will cost RM245 to fill to the brim with RON100 - because not only is the Chiron Pur Sport expensive, it also needs to feed on expensive fuel.

So, with it consuming 29.4 litres per 100km  - according to the Environmental Protection Agency in the US who derived this figure based on 45% extra-urban and 55% urban driving, this is going to cost the average Malaysian user an insanely painful RM72 per 100km for the average "Joe".

Annualise that figure to about 15,000km travelled per year per average Malaysian - while maintaining that the price of fuel remains unchanged for that distance, the total expenditure rises to a whopping RM10,800.

Of course, that's an expenditure that's considered nothing when compared to its USD$3.4mil (RM14mil) price tag (before taxes, options and etc).

Bugatti plans to only build 60 units of the Chiron Pur Sport for the world which has an engine that has a 6,900rpm redline (+200rpm compared to stock) while a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission helps it to sprint from 60 to 120kph almost 2.0 seconds faster than a stock Chiron.
