According to Bugatti, the development engineers take the handling characteristics from the current Divo and Chiron Sport to benchmark new models such as the Centodieci. The Chiron Super Sport 300+ for example is tuned for longitudinal dynamics and has a longer tail to handle speeds of up to 275 mph, but also has to be able to handle the tighter stuff.
“The Chiron Super Sport 300+ naturally has to likewise deliver a very high-performance drive on narrow tracks,” explains Jachin Schwalbe. Once track testing is done, the cars are taken on ordinary public roads to further optimize the handling characteristics and driving behavior. With 33 left-hand, and 40 right-hand bends, and a total length of nearly 21 kilometers, the Nurburgring is the perfect playground for the world’s most exotic hypercars and is a big reason why these big Bugattis drive so well.
