Thar she blows! Meet the Bugatti Chiron.

The Veyron's successor needs to be some car to top it.

Photo by: Bugatti

Thankfully, it is. It's got 1,500 horses running out of an 8.0-liter, quadruple-turbo W-16 engine.

Want carbon fiber? You got it!

Its engine is suitably huge.

Photo by: Bugatti

As are its brakes.

Photo by: Bugatti

Compared to the Veyron, the turbos are 69 percent bigger. That's...big.

Photo by: Bugatti

But if you want 300 more horses than the Veyron, you're gonna need more grunt.

Photo by: Bugatti

It's safe to say the Chiron is stunning to look at. See that curve? It's called the Bugatti Line, and it mimics the 'E' from Ettore Bugatti's signature.

Once you've reached the head of the queue, it takes five months to have your Chiron built.

Photo by: Bugatti

Three months to get all the parts to the Atelier, and two more to build it.

Photo by: Bugatti

To save weight, many components are now carbon fiber.

Photo by: Bugatti

Each car is hand built, as you'd expect.

Photo by: Bugatti

Painstaingly hand built.

Photo by: Bugatti

But the results are worth it.

Photo by: Bugatti

The Atelier at Bugatti's HQ had to be redesigned for Chiron.

Photo by: Bugatti

It's a vastly different car from its predecessor.

Photo by: Bugatti

Though the engine seems similar, it's pretty different.

Photo by: Bugatti

There are six tail pipes on Chiron -- four you can see, and two more you can't.

Photo by: Bugatti

The immense power generated by the car meant Bugatti needed to strip out and replace its rolling road test bed.

Photo by: Bugatti

This looks strange, huh? It sits behind the front brakes and aids cooling.

Photo by: Bugatti

Speaking of brakes, here's a caliper.

Photo by: Bugatti

So much work has gone in to making the Chiron not a racer for the road, but simply...the best car.

Photo by: Bugatti

This wasn't its original face though...

Photo by: Bugatti

Here's a concept drawing.

Photo by: Bugatti

Initial designs were all about being open. Quite imposing, huh?

Photo by: Bugatti

This front didn't make it past the board...

Photo by: Bugatti

...the rear did, though.

Photo by: Bugatti

Cold air goes in...warm air comes out.

Photo by: Bugatti

Pretty engine is pretty.

Photo by: Bugatti

And massive. Truly, truly huge.

Photo by: Bugatti

Here's a sketch of the speedo. It's surrounded by digital displays, but the thing that shows your speed is analog. Good.

Photo by: Bugatti

These notebooks contain years worth of technical and design notes. Marrying the two together, showing adjustments made of the Chiron's development.

Photo by: Bugatti

As rear lights go...

Photo by: Bugatti

In the Atelier, there's a model of each Veyron made -- exactly to spec. Bugatti will do the same with Chiron.

Photo by: Bugatti

How much do you want to hold one of these in your hands?

Photo by: Bugatti

Even the wheels are stunning.
