Introducing The 2020 Bugatti Chiron Grand Sport

0

Bugatti Chiron, Like other sports cars to keep his existence on the market Chiron will come out with a few upgrades for 2020 model year, This Next Bugatti Chiron will come as Chiron Grand Sport for the next year. So let see how the new 2020 Bugatti Chiron Grand Sport will look like.

Bugatti Chiron Current Edition

The Exterior Design

The 2020 Chiron Grand Sport would have a bar connecting the windshield to the engine hood. The benefit of such a configuration would be extra structural rigidity at high speeds, which would allow Bugatti to save a few pounds by using less chassis and body reinforcements compared to the standard roadster layout.

Whatever the configuration, the Chiron Grand Sport will have a lightweight carbon-fiber roof and a custom-built wind deflector for the windshield. As seen on the Veyron Grand Sport, this element will be stored in the front luggage compartment and attached to the windscreen frame after the top is removed. It will probably also get the umbrella-like soft-top that can be easily installed in case of bad weather strikes without warning.

Another mystery is what Bugatti will do about the sweeping, C-shaped curve that defines the Chiron’s profile. Without a roof, the upper section of this remarkable styling feature will be gone. Of course, the iconic “Bugatti Line” will again adorn the car when the top is back in position, but the design itself might cause a few issues. You see, the “Bugatti Line” also acts as an aerodynamic device, optimizing airflow into the side intakes and from there into the massive W-16 engine.

Cooling likely won’t be a problem here, but the Chiron might find it hard to reach its top speed without the roof. Sure, we’re not expecting the Grand Sport to hit the coupe’s 261-mph benchmark, but if the roadster fails to be faster than the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, which was limited at 233 mph for road use but set a 254-mph world record without the speed limiter, Bugatti will risk some bad publicity. On the other hand, the French brand has come up with lots of interesting solutions for more challenging issues in the past and we expect the same in this department as well.

Interior Styling

For the inside styling, Bugatti redesigned everything single panel and button for the Chiron, this time around using more organic lines and an overall cleaner layout. The classic instrument cluster seen in the Veyron was replaced by TFT screens that display various information and the navigation map, while the speedometer runs all the way up to 500 km/h (310 mph). There’s also a new flat-bottom steering wheel with aluminum spokes, more comfortable seats, and a premium sound-system featuring one-carat diamond membranes on its tweeters. Naturally, each Grand Sport will be customized upon the buyer’s request, meaning that you won’t see two cars that share the same upholstery colors and details.

The Engine

 The 2020 Bugatti Chiron will get its juice from the upgraded, quad-turbo, 8.0-liter W-16 generating 1,479 horsepower and 1,180 pound-feet of torque. The Chiron Grand Sport will benefit from an extra 296 horsepower and 74 pound-feet of torque compared to the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse and will be nearly as quick as the coupe. Current estimates for the Chiron are “less than 2.5 seconds” from 0 to 62 mph, “less than 6.5” ticks to 124 mph, and “under 13.6 seconds” to 186 mph. While these figures might be about the same for the Grand Sport with the roof in place, the topless version should be about a tenth-second slower from 0 to 62 mph.

As for top speed, expect the Grand Sport to hit the Chiron’s estimated 261 mph with the top up, but look for a lower benchmark with the carbon-fiber roof removed due to weaker aerodynamics. We’d venture to say that the roadster will be able to reach 240 mph in production guise, which will make it seven mph faster than the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse.

How Much To Get One?

There no official info about the price yet, but according to Topspeed.com, The 2020 Grand Sport will most likely fetch in excess of €2.8 million (around $3.2 million). Production will probably be limited to 200 of the total 500 Chiron set to be built over the next years.
