The final edition of the Chiron Super Sport 300+1 – built in honour of the model’s record-breaking 490.485kph (over 300+ mph) top speed run – has now been delivered, completing its production run of just 30 models.
Breaking new ground in straight-line performance, this Chiron Super Sport 300+ – as with every other 300+ – comes with an exposed carbon fiber body and Jet Orange accents.
When the Chiron Super Sport 300+ – piloted by Bugatti’s test driver Andy Wallace – smashed through the 482kph/300mph barrier in 2019 the world stood to attention ; never before had a production car reached such speeds.
It immediately occupied a spot in history and now stands as a marker in the quest for ever greater performance and speed.
Following the world record success, during a celebration of Bugatti’s 110th anniversary, Bugatti committed to building 30 examples of the record-breaking car for customers, the last of which has now gone to its private home.
A re-engineered version of Bugatti’s legendary 8.0-litre W16 engine surpasses the Chiron’s power output by 99hp, resulting in a total of 1,578hp.
Bugatti engineers developed a new thermal management system for the hyper sports car’s engine and gearbox, as well as making refinements to the software governing the engine, gearbox, powertrain and turbochargers.
To keep the car stable at high speeds, the Chiron Super Sport 300+ features a ‘longtail’ which extends the car by 25cm. This allows the air flow to pass over the body for a longer period of time, therefore reducing aerodynamic stall by more than 40%.
Air curtains adorning the hyper sports car’s front corners disperse excess air pressure towards the car’s sides. Simultaneously, air outlets at the wheel arches and behind the front wheels guide excess pressure away from each wheel arch, reducing drag by also producing a small amount of negative lift.
The Chiron Super Sport 300+’s liberal use of exposed carbon fiber flows through into the car’s engine cover, and even the windscreen wiper, contributing to important weight-saving that helps the hyper sports car push the envelope of performance.
Subtle touches, including the Bugatti "Macaron" logo made of genuine silver and black enamel, add to the sense of exclusivity and rarity. Extremely light and strong magnesium alloy wheels are finished in a bespoke colour named "Nocturne".
