Bugatti's bonkers new hypercar:


Bugatti is the hypercar maker that doesn't do things by halves - and its new Chiron Super Sport is one of its most outrageous road-legal models yet.

Officially unveiled this morning, the stunning limited-edition road car is based on the £2.5million 'standard' Chiron but offers increased performance, improved aerodynamics and a few nods to former Super Sport models from the brand's illustrious history.

According to the boss at the Molsheim motor maker, the new Chiron Super Sport is 'the ultimate grand tourer' - as well as being the most powerful combustion-engined road car money can buy.

Here are 10 things you need to know about the latest bonkers Bugatti... 

1. It will cost £3.3million if you wanted to buy one in the UK

It is not cheap. 

The French brand says it will be priced at €3.2million, and that's before taxes.

For a UK buyer, that's £2.75million before you've even considered adding VAT. Bolt that onto the figure and the total fee is a whopping £3.3million.

That's some way short of Bugatti's most expensive car ever - the one-of-a-kind La Voiture Noire, launched in 2019. Also based on the Chiron, the ultra-exclusive hypercar had an asking price of £11.3million.

The Super Sport is unquestionably super pricey, but a recent bout of exclusive car inflation means that it doesn't get within a sniff of making it into the top 10 new vehicles with the most extortionate price tags - you can see the full list in our feature on the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail, which was unveiled just last month.
