There’s no other car on the market like the Bugatti Chiron and if you’re one of its millions of fans, there’s a new Bugatti documentary worth checking out.
Published on the Welt documentary YouTube channel, it’s a great way to spend an hour. There are other really cool docs on Welt including a tour of Brabus.
The professional documentary gives us an in-depth look at the Chiron building process including the 2,600 pieces that go into the car.
The doc digs deep into the construction of the 8.0-litre, W16 16-cylinder engine that develops 1,500 horsepower. That’s the mill that gives the Chiron the ability to accelerate to 60 mph in 2.3 seconds (0-100 km/h in 2.5 seconds) and reach a top speed of 261 mph (420 km/h).
Costing $3 million, the Bugatti Chiron is a pure work of automotive engineering art.
Viewers are taken on a tour of both the Bugatti headquarters in Molsheim, France, and the Germany plant where the W16 engine is built.
Only eight technicians are certified to build the one-of-a-kind engine and Bugatti churns out only three per week. there are 3,700 parts in the engine alone and those working on it have to follow an extensive two-year training.
