Bugatti has completed production of the first eight copies of the Chiron Super Sport 300+ for customers.
It’s been two years since a Chiron Super Sport 300+ prototype broke the 300 mph (482 km / h) mark, reaching 304.773 mph (490.4 km / h). Bugatti has spent the last 24 months fine-tuning the car and is now ready to begin customer deliveries. Only 30 examples of the car will be produced, each finished in the same combination of exposed carbon fiber with bright orange accents.
“We are delighted to deliver the first eight units of this record pioneer to our customers, and to give them the pure sensation of speed behind the wheel,” said Christophe Piochon, General Manager of Production and Logistics at Bugatti, Christophe Piochon. declaration.

Bugatti introduced a host of modifications to the Chiron in order to break through the 300 mph barrier. Most notably, significant aerodynamic changes were made, including the installation of a longer rear trunk lid, custom engine cover and vertically stacked quadruple exhausts.
Drastic changes were also made to the front of the car and included a new bumper, enlarged air intakes and various front wheel arches. The Super Sport 300+ also comes with separate wheels from other Chiron models.
Additionally, Bugatti tweaked the car’s engine, bringing the grunt of the 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 from 1,479 hp to 1,578 hp.
Customer cars are capped at 275 mph (442 km / h) and while the Chiron Super Sport 300+ is not technically the fastest production car in the world, it is certainly one of the most desirable.
