We can’t say we’re surprised to hear this, given the amount of time that’s passed since the Chiron’s arrival. That’s further supported by the Chiron-based 군포오피걸 , a car that sacrifices top speed for increased handling prowess. Still, we’re rather disappointed that even a modest speed run to eclipse the Veyron SS wasn’t attempted. It reached 268 mph back in 2010 – a speed that many people believe is easily within the Chiron’s reach. Judging by this recent in-car video of the Chiron hitting its limited speed, we’re inclined to agree.
The interview features some other notable information. In addition to keeping the Chiron restrained, Bugatti has no plans to offer a topless Vitesse model, and it was suggested that a Supersport model may not arise, either. In some ways, it seems as though the automaker simply wants to move on from the car. We recommend jumping over to Motor Trend for the full interview, as it’s an interesting read to say the least.
