The Chiron was shown to the public in 2016 as a successor to the Bugatti Veyron. The engine alone in a Bugatti Chiron, or any Bugatti for that matter, deserves to be on a mantel. The 8.0L W16 quad-turbocharged motor is a masterpiece: not only is it incredibly complex, but engineers managed to package the entirety of this monstrous engine inside a relatively small shell.
Power figures are astounding, with the Bugatti Chiron pumping out 1,479 horsepower and 1,180 lb-ft of torque. The Chiron Sport, on the other hand, is an all-wheel-drive (AWD) brute that’s a bit spicier than the Chiron. Right off the bat, the major visual difference between a regular Chiron and the Chiron Sport is the four individual exhaust tips.
The Sport also boasts more responsive steering, a stiffer chassis, and a rear differential with torque vectoring at speeds of up to 75 mph (via Carbuzz). Plus, at 4,359 pounds, the Chiron Sport is 40 pounds (or around 1 percent) lighter than the regular Chiron. Performance is roughly the same, with 0-60 happening in 2.4 seconds, 0-100 mph in 4.4 seconds, and a top speed limited to 261 mph.
