Bugatti works unshackled speed into every atom of Chiron Super Sport

• by CC Weiss

The newest member of the Chiron family has been painstakingly optimized from contact patch to rooftop for world-beating grades of acceleration and speed. A long tail, uprated W-16 engine, 500-km/h tires and reworked aero make the new Super Sport as furiously fast as its predecessors. Oh, and Bugatti promises it's comfortable, too.

Bugatti starts its work by stretching the Chiron rear-end by roughly 10 in (25 cm) into a long tail meant to better hold laminar flow against the bodywork. Bugatti slaps a broad, flat rear diffuser in the lower center of that stretched backside, reducing wind resistance and slipstream.
