You’ve heard of the Bugatti Chiron's headline 1479bhp figure, but these are the more surprising numbers behind the new hypercar.
185bhp per litre
The 1995kg Chiron has 1179lb ft of torque in total, or 591lb ft per tonne on offer. That dwarfs the output of even the Ferrari 488 GTB, which can only squeeze a relatively measly 211lb ft per tonne out of its twin-turbocharged 3.9-litre V8.
Despite its near two-tonne weight, the Chiron can accelerate from 0-62mph in less than 2.5sec.
The all-wheel drive monster can then surge past 124mph just 4.0sec later before surpassing 186mph in less than 13.6sec – which is 0.1sec less than it takes a Nissan Note to reach 62mph.
