Currently reading: Bugatti delivers last Chiron Super Sport 300+
Final delivery of 1578bhp hypercar means the model’s 30-unit production run has come to an end

Bugatti has delivered the last of its record-breaking Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ models, which means the 30-example production run has finished. 

First revealed in 2019, the Chiron Super Sport 300+ was the fastest production car on sale, having achieved a record-breaking 304.773mph at the Volkswagen Group's Ehra-Lessien test track in Germany.

The 30 cars sold for around £3.1 million apiece and feature exposed carbonfibre bodywork with orange accents that pay homage to the original Bugatti Veyron Super Sport World Record Edition, which was the fastest production road car in 2010. 

Each car is powered by a re-engineered version of the quad-turbocharged 8.0-litre W16 engine seen in the standard Bugatti Chiron.

The Super Sport 300+ gained a performance boost of around 100bhp, at 1578bhp. Thanks to a longer-ratio gearbox, the car can reach top speeds of more than 300mph, whereas the standard car was limited to 261mph. 

Bugatti installed a new thermal management system and tuned the software to refine the engine, powertrain, gearbox and turbochargers. The model also gained a long-tail design, which increased its length by 25cm to reduce aerodynamic stall by over 40%. 

Christophe Piochon, president of Bugatti Automobiles, said: “In the long history of Bugatti, there are vehicles that come to define their era. The Type 35 transformed motor racing, the Type 41 Royale redefined opulence, the Type 57 SC set new standards for design, and now there is the Chiron Super Sport 300+, hitting speeds that were long thought to be impossible in a production car. 

“Its achievements have secured it legendary status in the Bugatti history books and we’re delighted to have seen all 30 examples of the Chiron Super Sport 300+ delivered to some of our most passionate customers.”

The Chiron exceeded the record at Ehra-Lessien but, it did not set a new record because there track condition meant there could not be a run in the opposite direction. Come on Jack Warrick, you must know that.

How long will how fast last?, these Cars are engineering marvels, most barriers to make a Road Car safe at these speeds and be driven by those who can afford them are done,mits how fast they get to these speeds, will EV Cars demolish 0-100, 300, 400mph?,and if they do, will they ever get on Public Tarmac?, will they like the Chiron have a special key to allow it?, also, there's not much Public road that you could do it and the Roads will have to be Billiard Table flat, entertaining?, undoubtedly on a long long runway, who wouldn't want a passenger ride then?

It didn't exceed anything. It was a pre production prototype. Two way averages are ONLY for PRODUCTION cars. But, nice try?
