Bugatti recently set the record for the fastest production car in the world with an adapted version of the Chiron. The brand now announces that it will build thirty copies of that record car.
The record of 490.48 kilometers per hour was set at the beginning of August by a prototype. The French sports car brand of the Volkswagen Group is now marketing that model as the Chiron Super Sport 300+.
The number 300 is a reference to the limit of 300 miles per hour (482.8 kilometers per hour), which was broken for the first time with the prototype.

The Chiron Super Sport 300+ has an additional 100 hp compared to the regular Chiron, bringing the power of the sixteen-cylinder engine to 1,600 hp. The car can be recognized by a modified front, which is equipped with larger air inlets.
Thanks to aerodynamic adjustments at the rear, the new model is also longer than the regular Chiron. In addition, the outlets have been given a different place. Bugatti starts in 2021 with the production of the first copies of the Chiron Super Sport 300+. The car costs at least 3.5 million, excluding taxes.
