The last Chiron Super Sport 300+ has been delivered by Bugatti, bringing an end to the first production road car to reach 483 km/h.

The Molsheim factory of Bugatti only produced 30 of the 300+ vehicles, and each one cost its owner nearly Rs82 crore ($3.6 million) to own.

At Volkswagen’s Ehra-Lessien testing facility, Andy Wallace, the official nutjob of Bugatti and a former McLaren Le Mans driver, smashed the speed record for the Super Sport 300+ in late 2019.


In order to achieve that, Bugatti’s engineers modified the gearing, increased the horsepower of the 8.0-liter W16 from 1480 to 1579, and created new longtail bodywork that stretched the Chiron by 9.8 inches (250 mm), lowering the aerodynamic stall by 40 per cent.

The stock Chiron’s top speed without those upgrades is 420 km/h, but only after you’ve used the second ‘speed key’ to disable the 236 mph (380 km/h) electronic limiter.
