The main carryover piece will be the 8 litre W16 quad-turbocharged engine, though it will be heavily updated. Direct injection will be added and two of the four turbos will be electronically driven to eliminate turbo lag.

Chiron has 1,479 bhp of power and 1,180 lb·ft of torque starting from 2000 rpm. Like its predecessor Veyron, it will have a carbon fibre body structure, independent suspension and 4WD system.

The Chiron will accelerate from 0–60 mp/h in under 2.5 seconds, 0-124 mp/h in less than 6.5 seconds and 0-186 mp/h below 13.6 seconds. The Chiron’s top speed is limited to 260 mph for safety reasons.

500 units are to be produced and 120 orders have already been placed. The Chiron will be available towards the end of 2016 with a cost of $2.6 million.
