Bugatti is not only synonymous with luxury and exclusivity; they’re also synonymous with speed, having produced several models that have broken speed world records.
Bugatti succeeds in making fast cars because it is purely focused on delivering on its promise of performance, as opposed to being focused on production.
Here are the 7 fastest Bugattis ever produced.
7. Bugatti Divo
- Top Speed: 236 mph (380 km/h)
- Horsepower: 1500 hp
Bugatti cars are special among luxury hypercars, but the Buggati Divo is special among Bugatti models. The Bugatti Divo was unveiled in 2019 and looked like a futuristic and aggressive hypercar.
With the Bugatti Divo, the aim was to build a car suited for a race track, which is very different from building a car for the road.
At first glance, the Bugatti Divo’s performance regarding top speed is not impressive (compared to the other Bugattis), reaching a top speed of 236 mph despite having the engine output as the Bugatti Chiron.
Here are the Bugatti Divo’s impressive acceleration stats:
|0-60 mph||2.6 s|
|0-100 mph||4.8 s|
|0-130 mph||7.3 s|
|0-150 mph||10.0 s|
|0-160 mph||11.5 s|
|0-180 mph||13.9 s|
However, top speed is only one aspect that makes a car quick. The car’s aerodynamic design and other factors contribute to its excellent performance on the race track.
The Bugatti team pinned the Divo against the Chiron on a race track (Nardo track) and witnessed the Divo’s domination, lapping 8 seconds quicker than the Chiron.
As is the tradition with Bugatti, the Divo is a rare car with only 40 units sold. Units sold for 5.4 million dollars, with the last produced in mid-2021.
6. Bugatti Centodieci
- Top Speed: 240 mph (380 km/h)
- Horsepower: 1600 hp
The Bugatti Centodieci was designed as an homage to the classic Bugatti EB110. This model is one of Bugatti’s most limited editions, producing 10 units in total, which is still not quite as limited as some other Bugatti Models.
Centodieci’s exterior differs significantly from the standard Bugatti, having a radical diamond-shaped design.
Regarding performance, the Centodieci can reach 240 mph, slightly slower than the Chiron’s top speed.
However, the Centodieci has great acceleration; here are the acceleration stats.
|0-60 mph||2.3 s|
|0-80 mph||3.3 s|
|0-100 mph||4.4 s|
|0-130 mph||6.6 s|
|0-150 mph||9.1 s|
|0-180 mph||12.7 s|
The Centodieci shares the same quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 engine as the Chiron but can produce 1578 horsepower (99 more horsepower than the Chiron). Nevertheless, though the Centodieci is fast, it does not quite match the top speed of the record-breaking Chiron and Veyron models.
The Centodieci model sold for $8.94 million, and deliveries to customers began in 2022.
5. Bugatti Mistral
- Top Speed: 261 mph (420 km/h)
- Horsepower: 1578 hp
Last but not least, the Bugatti Mistral is a model set to debut deliveries in 2024. The Bugatti Mistral will be the last of its kind; that is, it will be the last Bugatti to sport the powerful 8.0-liter, quad-turbo W16 engine that has consistently broken records.
The era of internal combustion engines is coming to a close as the hybrid era takes over, but Bugatti is set to finish things in style and speed.
Buggati is yet to release the acceleration stats, but it’s predicted to do 0-60 mph in 2.4 seconds.
The last rendition of the Bugatti W16 engine will give the Bugatti Mistral 1600 horsepower allowing it to reach a top speed of 261 mph.
The car’s top speed is reduced, as the roofless design affects the aerodynamics. Nevertheless, a 261 mph top speed for a roofless car is amazing.
Bugatti will produce a total of 99 Mistrals. People still looking to buy one have missed their opportunity, as they have already sold out for 5 million dollars.
4. Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport
- Top Speed: 267.86 mph (431.1 km/h)
- Horsepower: 1200 hp
Much like Bugatti Chiron 300+ Super Sport (number 2 on this list), the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport deserves to have the word ‘super’ in its title.
Though this model is old by hypercar standards, having been unveiled in 2010, it was a record-breaking car at the time of its release and is still one of the quickest cars you can find today.
The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport was the final variant of the Veyron group. Bugatti gathered all the data from its Veyron models to design a world-breaking car.
Thus, the Bugatti engineers produced a car with an additional 184 horsepower (compared to the Veyron), which increased its top speed.
The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport hit a top speed of 267 mph, which was record-breaking.
Here are the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport’s acceleration stats:
|0 – 60 mph||2.4 s|
|0 – 100 mph||4.9 s|
|0 – 150 mph||10.2 s|
|0 – 200 mph||22.2 s|
Bugatti sold the record-breaking car for 2.4 million dollars and limited production to 30 units. Needless to say that the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport sold out in a matter of seconds.
3. Bugatti Chiron
- Top Speed: 304.77 mph (490.5 km/h)
- Horsepower: 1500 hp
It was not enough for Bugatti to have produced the Bugatti Veyron, which had crushed top-speed records.
Bugatti’s designers and developers still had the hunger to make a car that could have the potential to push the limits of speed and acceleration further; enter the Bugatti Chiron.
The first Bugatti Chiron was unveiled to the world in 2016, but this original model is slower than one of the Veyron special edition models, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport.
Nevertheless, it has a W16 engine capable of producing close to a mind-blowing 1500 horsepower that gives it a top speed of 261 mph.
Here are the Chiron’s impressive stats regarding its acceleration:
|0-60 mph||2.3 seconds|
|0-100 mph||4.4 seconds|
|0-130 mph||6.6 seconds|
|0-150 mph||9.1 seconds|
|0-170 mph||11.7 seconds|
|0-200 mph||15.7 seconds|
The original Bugatti Chiron did break the record in 2017 for the fastest time to achieve 249 mph. It did so in 32.6 seconds.
Like every Bugatti car to ever hit the market, the first Bugatti Chiron model sold out quickly. Only 60 units have been produced, selling at 2.4 million euros. However, Bugatti did build on the original Chiron’s success, producing variants that broke more speed records.
2. Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+
- Top Speed: 304.77 mph (490.5 km/h)
- Horsepower: 1600 hp
Bugatti engineers took things up a notch when they designed the last Bugatti Chiron variant, the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+. The word ‘super’ is appropriate as this model was, for a time, recognized as the fastest road car in the world.
The upgraded 8.0-liter W16 engine delivered an additional 100 horsepower (compared to the Chiron), which allowed the Chiron Super Sport 300+ to give out a ridiculous 1600 horsepower.
Though the Chiron Super Sport 300+ is no longer the fastest car in the world, having been surpassed by the SSC Tuatara, the Chiron Super Sport 300+ retains a legendary record as the first car to break the 300-mph speed barrier.
The Chiron Super Sport 300+ also does 0-60 mph in 2.2 seconds, the fastest acceleration Bugatti’s are capable of.
Here are the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ acceleration stats:
|0 – 60 mph||2.2 s|
|0 – 100 mph||4.1 s|
|0 – 130 mph||6.1 s|
|0 – 150 mph||8.0 s|
|0 – 170 mph||10.1 s|
|0 – 200 mph||14.8 s|
Only 30 lucky (and extremely wealthy people) can own a Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+, as no more than that will be produced. Buyers had to set aside 3.89 million dollars to acquire one of the world’s fastest cars.
1. Bugatti Bolide
- Top Speed: 311 mph (500 km/h)
- Horsepower: 1824 hp
The Bugatti Bolide (meaning race car) is a newly unveiled model that began production in 2021 and will be ready for delivery in 2024.
If Bugatti delivers on the promises it has made regarding the Bolide, the car has the potential to break speed records. Building upon the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ is no small undertaking.
Much like the Bugatti Centodieci, the Bolide is a track-focused car, and it will sport a W16 engine, the engine that has helped Bugattis become such iconic and speedy cars.
With its 8.0-liter W16 engine and added turbos, the Bugatti Bolide should produce an astounding 1824 horsepower.
Bugatti has stated that the Bollide will easily surpass the Chiron Super Sport 300+ with a 311-mph top speed. When it comes to acceleration, it’s an even battle between the Chiron and the Bolide.
Here are the Bugatti Bolide’s incredible acceleration stats:
|0-62 mph (0-100 km/h)||2.2 seconds|
|0-124 mph (0-200 km/h)||4.36 seconds|
|0-186 mph (0-300 km/h)||7.4 seconds|
|0-249 mph (0-400 km/h)||12.1 seconds|
|0-311 mph (0-500 km/h)||20.1 seconds|
Bugatti has set itself a high bar following the end of the Chiron era. Only time will tell if the Bugatti engineers can produce a final product that delivers on its promise.
The Bolide’s price tag is set at 4.7 million dollars, which is not exceedingly expensive for a Bugatti. Production is limited to 40 units, and deliveries should begin in 2024.
