The beautiful Bugatti Chiron adorned in green carbon has become the 400th example produced in total, which means that the company has completed 80 percent of the planned production of the W16 hypercar. Bugatti announced in 2016 that it would only build 500 examples of the Chiron, and in January confirmed that it had sold out of all examples of the hypercar, including special editions.

The photos show the 400th produced example of the Chiron, and it is the Chiron Super Sport model. 20 people worked on it with the task of assembling about 1,800 components that make up this exotic car. Each of the team members must take care of every detail of this ultra-expensive hypercar.

Chiron is a masterpiece of engineering

“Every single part of the Chiron is a masterpiece of engineering, and bringing it all together requires the most dedicated and experienced specialists in the world,” said Christophe Piochon, the president of Bugatti.

“Our painting or finishing process is so detailed that to achieve the desired effect requires up to eight layers in the top coat alone, each one polished to a perfect, deep and lustrous mirror finish”. added Cristophe Piochon, president of Bugatti.

The green color of the body is combined with "Fierce" welded details around the front bumper, in the center of the rims and elsewhere. SuperSport Magnesium rims adorn the hypercar, while the hood is in Nocturne color. The green and black theme continues in the interior, the leather used for the upholstery is green and Beluga black, while the steering wheel features carbon details.

The Sky View roof means that the interior is illuminated by natural light. There are no surprises under the hood. The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport is powered by an 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine delivering 1,600 horsepower (1,176 kilowatts).

The new engine produces 100 horsepower more than the original Chiron due to the addition of a larger quarter of turbochargers and an increased maximum engine speed of 7,100 rpm. Taking advantage of this engine's power with the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, you can accelerate from 0 to 186 mph (0 to 300 kilometers per hour) within 12.1 seconds when combining it with the dual-clutch transmission.

It is capable of reaching speeds of up to 273 mph (440 km/h). Production of the last 100 Chirons will now begin, but this model will not mark the end of the W16 engine. That honor will go to the W16 Mistral and the racing Bolide.
