Understanding Bugatti’s Model Lineup

Welcome to another edition of our ‘Understanding’ series. This time, we’re explaining the luxury and supercar segments by explaining their current model lineup.

Last week, we covered Aston Martin and Bentley’s current model lineups to get a better understanding of what those companies offer and represent. Today, we move away from British automotive luxury to what the French have to offer with Bugatti. To be completely fair, both Bugatti and Bentley are owned by Volkswagen AG, and I’m sure if you go into enough depth, you’ll find a few common nuts and bolts between their vehicle. Regardless, let’s find out about Bugatti’s current model lineup.

BHPetrol RON95 Euro 4M

Chiron

The Chiron is a 2-seater hypercar with an 8-litre W16 quad-turbocharged petrol engine. This engine was carried forward and updated from the most powerful variant of the Chiron’s successor, the Veyron. The Chiron has been around since 2016 and only 500 will be made during its production run.

Actually that’s it. Ever since Volkswagen took over, they’ve made sure Bugatti makes just one main model at a time in limited quantities. The Veyron was produced from 2005-2016 with major updates and new variants sprinkled throghout. With the current Chiron, there are also special editions with different designs and performance upgrades. These are, of course, more expensive, more rare and subjectively more interesting to look at.
