The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport Dino produces 1,596 hp

Bugatti recently strapped its chisel to a dynamometer and the results dispelled any doubts about the horsepower rating of the company’s hypercars.

The special version used in the test is the Chiron Super Sport, whose official output is 1,578 hp, or 1,600 ps metric horsepower using Bugatti.

After the Dino Dino Run, the Bugatti registered a maximum output of 1,618 PS from the car’s 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W-16 engine, which is 1,596 hp or 18 hp higher than the car’s official rating.

Wheel output was measured at 1,301 ps, which is equivalent to 1,282 hp. Here the parasitic damage of the drivetrain measures about 20%, which is more but not unreasonable for a vehicle with a complex transmission and all-wheel-drive system like the Chiron Super Sport.

Dino experiments are notorious for producing results that can vary depending on a variety of factors, including the design of the dinosaurs, which is why we have seen higher results from regular chirons during dinosaur experiments. To achieve results closer to what owners can expect in the real world, Bugatti uses a special type of dinosaur designed for high-performance vehicles, including all-wheel drive.

Here, each wheel sits on a large roller instead of two small rollers like most dinosaurs. According to Bugatti, since each wheel has only one touchpoint, which is what happens when a car is driven on the road surface, the results are more accurate.

The Dino can be adapted to a variety of wheelbases, and can simulate speeds of up to 300 miles per hour, with a maximum braking power of 1,609 hp per roller. At such speeds, a car would face a lot of high-speed winds. As a result, the Dino also has a huge fan with a rotor measuring 6.33 feet in diameter. It is capable of transferring about 10.5 million cubic feet of air per hour.

Unveiled in 2021, the Chiron Super Sport is a speed-limited version of the Chiron Super Sport 300+ that was able to hit the Volkswagen Group’s Ehra Lessien test track in Germany in 2019 at a speed of 304.773 mph. The Chiron Super Sport’s maximum speed is limited to 273 mph, and compared to the 300+ version, the car has more luxury and a more forgiving chassis. Production of the Chiran Super Sport began in April at the Bolshevik Molsheim plant in France. The original price of one was set at 3.2 million euros (about 3 3.36 million).
