How the Bugatti Bolide is much, much quicker than a Chiron

809 294 Näkymät

Revealed late last year, the Bugatti Bolide is by far the most extreme car the company has ever produced. Closer to an LMP1 car than a road car, this thing has apparently set simulated lap times that boggle the mind. Mike Fernie investigates this incredible car, diving into its engine, aerodynamics and statistics.
A link to Mike's jumper, seeing as lots of you are asking!

  • Bugatti could just use Bentley GT3's V8 twin turbo engine. The engine has been proven, reliable, & got great sound

  • They should build a new engine for this car not use a old one

  • Take 4 of the Ducati Supersports 2cyl and stick them together just like they did with the W16. That would make a fearsome, almost 1000 hp, high revving hornet of an engine

  • Lol I just saw the title of this vid and had to come say. It's quicker because it is 756 kilos lighter. But faster it is not. The Chiron can exceed 300MPH because because every part of it is built to do so, while Bolide is built for a track. Bugatti recieved massive critisisim for showing top speed times for the Bolide like 0 - 500km/h but that car can never attain that speed because it is designed with down force and cornering in mind and also its tyres would nearly evapourate if it tried to do those speeds. There is actually a video that explains why it is so difficult to abtain 300MPH. Simulated: The Bolide would actually start dragging on the ground before it even got close to Chiron Speed :)

  • fast sure, but likely costs as much as private jet, as comfortable as a grocery cart, higher maintenance than Brittaney Spears, and as reliable as a Chinese built Alibaba scooter. For that money a far cheaper, more reliable & comfortable super car can be built & modified.
