Bugatti told how to build a hypercar Bugatti ChironJune 5, 2020
The W16 engine alone has about 3,700 parts.
The car appeared as a transportation tool, but has become much larger in the last 130 years. For many, this is a symbol of individuality, a form of expression. It also combines ingenious design with engineering to create truly stunning and mechanically exceptional machines.
Few car manufacturers can combine two different vocations into something truly unusual, but the Bugatti comes to mind. The latter, Chiron, is a miracle of engineering that looks great both at a speed of 420 kilometers per hour, and when it is standing. The new documentary plunges into the Chiron assembly process, peering behind the curtain of a hypercar.
The documentary begins at the company’s headquarters in Molsheim, France, to combine the front and rear of the chassis before heading to Germany, where the 8-liter W16 is built. Only eight technicians are qualified in the world who are suitable for creating a monstrous power plant, and the team produces about three engines a week, which use about 3,700 parts. To become a Bugatti engine manufacturer, you will need two more years of training.
A motor is only one of 2,600 parts that complement a machine, and it takes about two months to make it. Chiron has 2.5 kilometers of wiring. It is also a slow process, taking four days alone to attach pristine body panels, with the latter being the active wing.
The Bugatti Chiron has been around for four years and spawned several options and special versions, from Divo to Pur Sport. With 1,500 horsepower, the Chiron is both monstrous and beautiful. The model accelerates to hundreds in 2.3 seconds, and also has a high level of personalization. Its nearly $ 3 million price tag seems justified.
