It appears The Grand Tour managed to get its hands on the Bugatti Chiron. The Veyron successor will be appearing on the upcoming episode of Amazon’s new series starring former Top Gear hosts Clarkson, Hammond, and May, and Michelin, which supplies the tires for the 1,480-hp hypercar, has treated us with a little preview.

This video highlights the extreme stresses placed on the tires of the Chiron at speeds approaching 250 mph and beyond. And it also reveals some interesting tidbits like, for example, the fact the vehicle at full tilt can churn through its entire 22-gallon gas tank in 9.0 minutes.

The short video also teases us with the question of just how fast The Grand Tour folks managed to take the Bugatti Chiron. Spoiler alert: The speed is unlikely to be more than 261 mph.

Recall that Bugatti is limiting a Chiron to this speed until the company has its first crack at the Veyron Super Sport’s 267.8 mph land speed record, and with the attempt currently scheduled for sometime in 2018.

Despite this, The Grand Tour episode featuring the Bugatti Chiron should be thoroughly exciting. Unfortunately, it isn’t clear when the episode will actually be aired.

Deliveries of the Bugatti Chiron have already commenced. Like the Veyron before it, the car comes with the quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W-16 paired to the 7-speed dual clutch transmission and all-wheel-drive system. Just 500 will be built, including all the planned special edition models, the starting price is a cool 2.4 million euros (approximately $2.6 million).
