The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport will be subjected to the last high-speed tests before the planned start of delivery at the end of August, Bugatti announced in a press release on Tuesday.
Revealed just a few weeks ago, the latest version of the Chiron has a claimed top speed of 273 mph, and Bugatti wanted to make sure it was comfortable at that high speed. The engineers ran test runs at this speed and checked things like rear wing angle, ride height, damping, and the level of power steering.
For these tests, the engineers added about 100 sensors to track temperature and pressure at various points. Again, it was about making sure everything works at the very high speeds this car can reach.
The Chiron Super Sport emerged from the Chiron Super Sport 300+, which broke the 300-mile mark in 2019 on the Volkswagen Group’s test track in Ehra Lessien. Cars because Bugatti did not make the required run in the opposite direction, the automaker had no problems To sell 30 copies to customers.

Prices for the Chiron Super Sport start at approximately $ 3.9 million based on current exchange rates. Bugatti did not say how many super sports cars should be built, but did point out that the models count towards the Chiron’s total production of 500 units.
