Images of the six-wheeled Bugatti Chiron appeared on the InternetOctober 9, 2019
Of course, currently in the automotive diversity there is no such thing as a unique luxury product that is not in demand. Any car, whether it is a limited edition or perhaps even the exclusive Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 6×6, will definitely be popular among wealthy customers who want to include a novelty in their collection.
Only a factor of exclusivity would be enough to arouse the interest of many rich people, even if the car is not as good as the usual variation. In fact, certain disadvantages of installing 6×6 on a car are still present.
For starters, this is more weight, which for a hypercar, like the Bugatti Chiron, is an important criterion. There will be additional maintenance costs, and even lower fuel efficiency. In addition, the car will be longer and less agile when cornering.
Regarding the advantages, it is most likely that you can get better grip, however, given that this is a hypercar, the added weight coefficient probably compensates for any grip advantage that you could have, say, in a simple Chiron Super Sport.
As for the appearance, the Chiron SS 6×6 is noticeably longer than its 4-wheel version. It can be seen that the original rear wheels were installed a little closer to the cab. This is a pretty interesting concept, and I would definitely like to see how the 6-wheeled Chiron will ride in real life. But some things are better left to the imagination.
