The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ Breaks Cover

A 300+ mph Chiron was announced during a special event this weekend, the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+.

Not even a week has passed since Bugatti’s record attempt announcement with a modified Chiron. Test driver Andy Wallace took a pre-production vehicle of a new Chiron derivative and broke the 300-mile-per hour barrier, 304.773 mph (490.484 km/h) to be precise.

This new “Chiron derivative” has a name, the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ and it will be available to purchase for a select few. Indeed, this new limited edition will be built in only 30 copies at a starting price of about 3.5 million euros (around 5 million CAD). The car was unveiled this weekend at Bugatti’s 110th-anniversary Grand Tour gala dinner in Molsheim.

The Chiron Super Sport 300+ is powered by the same 8.0L quad-turbo W16 engine as the pre-production version pushing 1,578 horsepower. Bugatti’s new record breaker features a few aerodynamic adjustments mostly on the back of the car to help it break the 300mph barrier.

Compared to the pre-production record-breaking version, the roadgoing model will have a passenger seat, but will still get the naked carbon body as well as two orange stripes as seen in the feature photo. We’re pretty sure that the buyer will be able to have it the way he wants, orange stripes or not.

Furthermore, Top Gear reports that the buyer will be able to add the options of a roll-cage and to remove the limiter. The Ehra-Lessien test track, where the record happened, can also be yours to stretch your Chiron Super Sport 300+ legs as Bugatti can grant you access to it.

The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ will be electronically limited to 440 kph and according to Motor1.com, one is already sold. If you’re quick enough you might be able to snag one of the 29 left.
