Bugatti’s cars are a work of art, an engineering masterpiece. The company makes one car every ten years and each vehicle becomes iconic. Their older cars are worth over $16 million.
In 2016 the most famous French company in the world presented the powerful and expensive Bugatti Chiron. It took them almost a decade to design and engineer this machine and they could push the boundaries of the automobile. And this car became a benchmark for power and raw speed.
At the end of 2019, we all could see the new Bugatti’s Carbon Fiber ‘Chiron Noire’. The brand decided to mimic the design of a Bugatti Type 57 that was built between 1936 and 1938.
We were excited to see what the creators of 16 cylinder beasts that go almost 300 miles per hour can do. And here we have 15 things we know about Bugatti’s carbon fiber ‘Chiron Noire’.
15. ONLY 20 UNITS WILL BE SOLD
If you’re going to buy the Bugatti’s Carbon Fiber ‘Chiron Noire’, you’d better hurry up because only 20 units are made. You just need to pay $3.3 million for the base package and an extra $110 865 for the Sport package. This shadowy black vehicle could not get more exclusive and expensive.
14 SALUTE THE LA VOITURE NOIRE
La Voiture Noire was the car produced between 1936 and 1938. The company calls it the most beautiful car ever made. If the car made it to our days, it would be one of the most expensive, too. It disappeared during the Second World War. If it were made in 2020, it would probably look like the Chiron Noire.
13 ALL-BLACK INTERIOR
We didn’t expect anything less from the car that has the name “Noire”. All interior and exterior parts are colored black. It means leather details, aluminum parts, the steering wheel, the C-line, the door handles. Even little things such as buttons and knobs are black. Every single detail just swallows the light.
12 SPECIFICALLY FOR BUGATTI LOVERS
As the Bugatti Design Director, Achim Anscheidt, said, “the new vehicle is the modern interpretation of a classic design and it’s made specifically for the brand enthusiasts.” Those who know the company really well will see all little improvements and upgrades that make it the most powerful and luxurious version yet.
11 LUXURY LEVELS OF COMFORT WITH SUPERCAR POWER
Under the hood, you can find the 8.0-liter 16-cylinder engine with 1 500 horsepower and 1 600 Newton meters of torque. This is not a new engine though, yet it is still one of the most powerful ones. More importantly, the company didn’t have to sacrifice driver comfort for the performance.
10 SPORTY PERSONALITY
The brand described the car as “sporty”. We can see exclusive Bugatti personality in little details such as signature lines, dashboard, console, four visible tailpipes, front spoiler, radiator grille, and matte finish. Inside we have the word “Noire” embroidered in the headrest and on the center console. Even the engine shows its unique black personality.
9 W16 ENGINE
The W16 is a 16 cylinder engine. It is almost never used in cars or even produced with notable exception of Bugatti. The 2020 Chiron Noire engine is made by the Volkswagen Group, which is the only manufacturer in the world who can make these engines.
8 0-60 IN 2.4 SECONDS
The Bugatti’s Carbon Fiber ‘Chiron Noire’ is one of the fastest cars in the world as it accelerates from 0 to 60 in only 2.4 seconds. Bugatti was the first company in the world that could hit 60 mph in 2.5 seconds. The new model is even quicker than that.
7 1500 HORSEPOWER
Thanks to the quad-turbocharged W16 engine, the Chiron can boast 1,500 horsepower. With that much power under the hood, you can sustain speeds over a long distance. The car should be able to hit 0 to 249 mph in 32.6 seconds and 0 to 124 mph in 6.5 seconds.
6 FLASHY PERSONAL DESIGN
Polished and classy, or aggressive and courageous? The company decided not to choose and presented two different stylistic twists of one model. The Chiron Noire Elegance is like the grown-up brother of the second model named Sportive. In fact, it is the opposite of Elegance with its striking body lines and dynamic details.
5 EXCLUSIVE BADGING AND LOGOS
The company is yet to show interior photos but we already know that you won’t forget what car you’re driving. The “Noire” inscription can be found all over the cabin. It is on the door sills, seats and the console. The brand also added badging to show off the exclusivity of the vehicle.
4 MAXIMUM SPEED IS ELECTRONICALLY LIMITED
We already know that the maximum speed limit is 261 mph. The company had to restrict the top speed because of the tires that can only handle 261 mph. The maximum speed without the electronic limit is 304. 777 mph, as was shown by test driver Andy Wallace in September 2019.
3 NAKED CARBON FIBER
Bugatti’s Carbon Fiber Chiron Noire has the exterior that is hard to shake off. It’s something in the naked carbon fiber that makes us want to stare at it. The only reaction you will see while driving the new Chiron Noire is “Wow”. This is the look to die for.
2 RECOGNIZABLE LED HEADLIGHTS
The new Chiron Noire got the same quad LED headlights as other generations of Chiron. They serve an important purpose and intake air through brakes. This is how the company combines aesthetics with functionality, produces performance-driven designs.
The headlights complement the overall sense of luxury and comfort. Everything is colored black.
1 60,000 LITERS OF AIR GO THROUGH THE ENGINE EVERY MINUTE
Bugatti is proud of its engineering, and rightfully so. 60,000 liters of air goes through the engine every minute – along with 800 liters of water. The titanium exhaust system controls gas backpressure and increases car performance. Lightweight materials, such as carbon fiber and titan, maximize engine potential.
