The new Bugatti Chiron is the ultimate hypercar, the most extreme version to date, which is why it’s had the automotive industry talking since it was released.
The thing is, with the car this special, some rigorous testing is needed and Bugatti have the more intense program than most. It must work, because the vehicle has already kicked ass at the Goodwood Festival of Speed without breaking the sweat, even though it’s top speed has been limited.
Most owners will only pose with the vehicle anyway, so that’s not the terrible thing. Bugatti themselves just released the wicked little video that shows how it’s tested the Bugati Chiron for extreme temperatures, it’s pretty mad what the cars have to go through.
The Chiron is more complex than most hypercars with that 1,500 horsepower quad-turbocharged W16 engine powering it, it needs to complete one of the most exacting and comprehensive test programmes out there. And for this, more than 30 test cars were (or still are) in use, including these four models that the Bugatti engineers took to the US this summer for endurance testing in Death Valley’s scorching heat for four and the half weeks.
They covered 21,750 miles and saw outside temps as high as the 125-degrees Fahrenheit.
While that’s all very impressive, the video below has also taught us something rather valuable. When you see the run-of-the-mill transport truck on the highway, it may be full of Chirons!
