That "1,500" isn't just for looks, that's the amount of metric horsepower the Bugatti Chiron puts out.

In imperial figures? That's 1,479 horses.

To get that power you're going to need some forced induction. Four turbos, to be exact.

The turbos are arranged in sequence. At low rpm, only two are enabled.

At higher speeds, a trick exhaust manifold opens up, giving you all four.

This means the Chiron can roll with turbos that are significantly larger than last year.

The result is a massive 26.8psi of boost!

For all that power, you'll need some mega brakes. Thankfully, Chiron has those, too.

The Chiron exhales through a six-tip exhaust.

Four tips duct through the rear bumper, the further two go straight to the ground.

And of course power is nothing without control.
