“Where the hell do you put silverware in a Bugatti?” the customs officer asked, staring at the eating utensils packed in engineer Dennis Rohlfs’s fancy aluminum Zarges case, which was otherwise filled with spare parts for hot-weather testing of the new 1500-hp Bugatti Chiron . At Bugatti, even the engineers have expensive luggage. Rohlfs explained that he wanted to show good manners in America by using a knife and fork when eating the hamburgers he expected to be deluged with out in the desert west. Shaking his head, the customs officer let the weird foreigner pass. Welcome to America.
The 21st century has brought us many fantastic supercars, but when it comes to performance, there’s one to rule them all. I’m talking about the Bugatti Veyron. It was discontinued in 2015 after 450 units were built over 10 years, during which time, it reigned as the fastest street-legal production car in the world. The Veyron Super Sport achieved 257.87 mph in 2010, a Guinness World Record that has survived to this day. This will change soon, however, as Bugatti has just unveiled a brand-new hypecar to replace the Veyron.
The Bugatti 18/3 Chiron is a 1999 concept car by Bugatti Automobiles designed by Fabrizio Giugiaro of Italdesign .  Powered by a 6.3 L W18 engine , it is a 2-seater mid-engined sports car . Bugatti named the Chiron in honor of Bugatti racing driver Louis Chiron .  The 18/3 Chiron was the last in a trio of Bugatti concept cars by Italdesign, after the 1998 EB 118 coupé and the 1999 EB 218 saloon.
When Ferdinand Piëch decreed the Bugatti Veyron would be built, his brief to the engineers was simple: The car had to have more than 1,000 hp; it had to be able to accelerate to 60 mph in less than 3.0 seconds; it had to have a top speed of 250 mph; and he had to be able to drive Mrs. Piëch to the opera in it in the evening. Piëch’s brief for the Veyron’s successor, the Chiron, was even simpler: It had to be better than the Veyron. No pressure, then.
There are days, and they don’t come often, when the automotive world shifts on its axis. This, ladies and gentleman, is one of them because the Veyron’s reign as the world fastest production car is at an end, and the usurper comes from within. Yes, the £1.9m Chiron retains the Veyron’s fundamental proportions and powertrain, but it’s new in every other conceivable way, and built to bend physics to breaking point.
