Bugatti Chiron: Who Designed it Better?

Rendering or reality?

A new Bugatti is a momentous event. Discounting special editions, only two new Bugatti models were created for limited consumption in the past 25 years. The new Bugatti Chiron just bowed in Geneva, and it is causing quite a stir with 1,500 hp and a top speed that breaches the 260-mph mark. Of course, with such a landmark car, there is plenty of speculation and guesswork that precedes the actual debut. We made our own (rather accurate) predictions back in August, with a fancy rendering of what we though the hypercar might look like.

 

We got some of the technical details correct; a variant of the 8.0-liter, quad-turbocharged W-16 engine sends 1,500 hp to all four wheels through a mighty seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Beyond that, the styling was anyone's guess.

 

We had our illustrator tackle the task, and he created a rather handsome rendering of the hypercar king. The general shape is congruent with the real deal, and we pegged the horseshoe grill head-on. What we missed out on was our space-age wrap-around windshield, along with a few stylistic differences. A separate rendering of the rear is a little off track from the real product, but not so much that it is out of the same realm.

 

Unsurprisingly, Bugatti previewed its own design back in September with the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo. Essentially, this wild concept was the Chiron in aerodynamic drag.

 

Now, there is only one last question we need answered about the new Bug: which one do you prefer?
