What better way to celebrate the aviation history of France than Bugatti commissioning a special edition Chiron Sport and racing it with a modern fighter jet.
It is powered by an incredible 8.0 Liter W16 engine that carries not one, not two but four turbochargers. This incredible engine makes nearly 1500hp and can very easily take the Bugatti up to 261 MPH that is if you find a stretch of road long enough to test it out for yourself. This outstanding performance profile makes it the perfect accompaniment to the fighter jet.
The video above highlights the aesthetic beauty of the Bugatti. It also shows the Bugatti speed past the jet at the beginning of the video, however, we do not get to see both machines engage in an actual timed race but we can make do with the thought that if the race were to be timed, it’s a strong possibility the Bugatti might actually win. “Top Gear” where are you when we need y’all”
If you happen to be one of the 20 lucky folks to snag one of these Les Légendes du Ciel edition Bugatti Chirons and want to race it against your personal jet, we’d be happy to see the results. As for the price? Let’s just say you might want to have your personal auto broker reach out to your financial people before getting in touch with Bugatti. If you don’t have financial people, maybe you’re better off just watching the video above.
