The Bugatti Chiron is reported to top 290 mph


Technical specs have been shared at a recent customer presentation prior to the car’s unveiling at Geneva this upcoming March. The numbers play out like a serious game of Top Trumps: 1500 (the total horsepower, as well as torque in N·m); 467 (top speed, in kilometres per hour); 2.2 (seconds, for the 0-100 km/h dash); and 2 million (the price, in Euros).

BUGATTI CHIRON.........i am getting a yellow one :peace: (not really)

This car can obviously hit a nice round 300mph, so I wonder why they don't just call it that? It sounds a lot better. I'll bet it's actually speed limited to 290.

@qubit I agree, but suspect the magic barrier of 290-300mph exerts serious stability issues on this car :p

lol another car which had empty fuel tank in 12 minutes + tires last 15 min... at top speed :ohwell: so you need a fueling station (with new tires) at every 75 miles... good is available i buy 2 :wtf:

Unlike other cars? :p

Anyway I'm kinda sad I don't get to see Richard Hammond driving this on a BBC programme.

Their is a lot of difference from 290 and 300, even more so if your one of the people competing against another.

The speed difference is about 3.4%, so I can't really see that being much of an issue. Perhaps it's just a case of what the tyres are officially rated at and if they go above it there are liability issues?

Could be a lot of things, but I'm sure they have a good reason for it whatever it is, as 300 in marketing sounds a lot better than 290.

Still looks terribly ugly. I imagine much of its design is to provide greater control and handling but still, it aint pretty.

I'm sure anyone with 2 million Euros for a car isn't going to be concerned with spending more but I bet the insurance on that car is ridiculous.

If any insure it all, did you see the top gear where Clarkson tried to insure the veyron?

Some rough calculations of the forces we're talking about...
http://www.wolframalpha.com/widgets/view.jsp?id=bcc8ab4a61a1d1f3f102846d9617eb8

The original Veyron had a coefficient of 0.36. Let's drop that down to 0.3 and let's say the frontal area is 2m * 1m or 2 meters squared. Density of air at sea level is 1.225 kg/m3.

467 kph (290 MPH) = 80,148 N (109 hp)
483 kph (300 MPH) = 85,734 N (117 hp)

10 MPH more at those speeds requires 7% more power. Power requires a bigger engine, more robust transmission, more robust drivetrain, more robust cooling systems, more fuel, and all of these things add weight which, in turn, requires more power to move.

Edit: Back when they engineered the GT90, they said every mile per hour over 200 requires 10 more horsepower. About 500 HP can get you to to 200 so 90 mph (900 hp) beyond that would increase the power requirement to 1400 hp. The hp figure above is just what is required to overcome the vehicles drag at those speeds... the remaining 1200+ hp is needed to accelerate to 290 mph.

The required force doesn't scale linearly. Getting those 7% extra Ford's talking about is a pretty big thing at those speeds.

And even if that was the theoretical top speed you need good days for it. Damp track? No go. Windy? No go. Too hot? Probably no go.

Still looks terribly ugly. I imagine much of its design is to provide greater control and handling but still, it aint pretty.
In the pics it's ugly because of all the bling. The black one in the video looks a whole lot better.

This is about as high as it is going to get for production, street legal cars...at least until there's some revolution in fuel. 300 MPH is a very difficult number to reach, nevermind cross.

Same shit with every thing though, a lot of people were happy to finally see GPU's to hit over the 1Ghz and it be the same case with 2Ghz mark too.

When people race cars every split second counts, same deal.

Was the same way back with the 190-200mph mark with Ferrari.

The VBB-3 is the collaborative project of Venturi Automobiles and student engineers at Ohio State University, and it boasts nearly 3,000 horsepower.
This vehicle is the most powerful electric car in the world, and can hit speeds as high as 372 miles-per-hour. The team is hoping to take it for a record-breaking run this summer.
It can go from 0 to 60 in just two seconds. This compares to Tesla's 'Insane Mode' on its Model S electric cars that goes from 0 to 60 in 3.2 seconds


CNN,


The 'electric streamliner' is 12 meters long, and contains 2,000 cells within eight battery packs.

I'd like to see one of these rival the Bloodhound SSC currently in development, which will reach 1000MPH. Now that will be something.
