Bugatti Chiron: One of a Kind

If this Volkswagen Group moon shot is the last hurrah for purely gasoline-powered hypercars, the Chiron goes out with a $3 million bang: 1,500 horsepower, 16 cylinders, four turbochargers and a production-record 261-mph top speed. Maintaining that insane velocity would drain the Chiron’s 26.4-gallon fuel tank in nine minutes. At full throttle, the engine sucks up 1,000 liters of air per second. Bugatti is making only 500 Chirons, of which more than 250 are already sold—about $750 million worth. But cold numbers aside, the Chiron is a work of automotive art. That includes an interior hand built by Bugatti in Molsheim, France, that will dazzle car fans a half century from now—when internal-combustion monsters like the Chiron will be long extinct.
