There is no doubt that the 2017 Bugatti Chiron is a beautiful wedding of beauty and beauty. But for a cool $ 2,998 million, they say, more convenient supercars (stops laughing) to take you to Davos or South Beach.
Simply put, 2017 Bugatti Chiron’s fuel economy ratings, released Thursday by the Environmental Protection Agency, are absurd.
Of course, the 8-liter quad-turbo quad-turbo four-cylinder engine delivers 1,180 pounds of weight, has a top speed of 261 mph and makes 0 to 60 in 2.3 seconds (Look at it up to 218 Mph, here). Definitely impressive. But there is a compromise: a meager 11 miles per gallon in the combined driving of the city and the highway. It\’s 9 mpg in the city and a huge 14 on the highway.
This is equivalent to an estimated annual fuel cost of $ 3,800, an average of $ 6.26 in gasoline, no less – for each 25-mile route. With a 9.1 gallon fuel tank, you would be in a hurry, while reducing the PCH or the highway, to exceed 100 miles before you have to find a filling station.
Yet, it is a mild ascending tumor of the Bugatti Veyron, which the EPA has estimated at 10 mpg combined. Bugatti says the W16 engine represents a 25 percent increase in performance over its predecessor, with almost all parts of the engine being examined and newly developed. Included are four turbochargers 69 percent larger than those of the abandoned Veyron.
In a way, we doubt that the bad ratings of fuel economy harm the prestige of the supercar. In November, Bugatti design director Achim Anscheidt told Autoblog that Chiron’s exclusive clientele has an average of 42 cars in its unpredictable garages (plus 1.7 jets and 1.4 yachts to start).
With many hot wheels, it is safe to say that the Chiron will not accumulate miles too fast.
