The new Chiron has received a redesigned fascia, a fixed wing and an enlarged titanium diffuser. The weight of the model is reduced by 50 kg, and the center of gravity is lowered. It is possible to increase downforce and provide maximum dynamics in the corners.

The car is still equipped with an 8.0-liter W12, producing 1500 hp and 1600 Nm, while the engine speed is increased to 6900 rpm (+200 rpm). The engine comes with a redesigned automatic (80%) transmission. As a result, the flexibility of the engine is improved by 40%. A top speed of the hypercar is 350 km/h.

Also, the new Chiron has got specially designed aerodynamic wheels shod in special Bugatti Sport Cup 2 R tires for better grip: front wheels — 285/30 R20, rear wheels — 355/25 R21. The hypercar has a different stabilization system and a reconfigured suspension with stiffer springs.

Only 16 copies worth $3.55 million dollars each will be released. Production will begin in the second half of 2020.
