Can Two 1000HP BMWs Beat A Bugatti Chiron Super Sport In A Drag Race?
Mat Watson from carwow got his hands on one of the thirty Bugatti Chiron Super Sport examples, designed for high-speed performance. He decided to pit it against two tuned BMWs – an M5 and M4 xDrive.
The Chiron Super Sport is equipped with an 8-liter quad-turbo W16 engine, producing 1,600 hp and 1,600 Nm of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox, and the car weighs 1,995 kg.
In comparison, the M4 xDrive, also all-wheel drive, weighs 1,750 kg and houses a 3.0-liter twin-turbo six-cylinder engine. This M4, modified by Evolve Automotive, boasts 1,000 hp and 1,000 Nm of torque. The BMW M5, with a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, has also undergone significant upgrades, reaching 1,000 hp and 1,200 Nm of torque from the base 625 hp and 750 Nm. Weighing 1,865 kg, the M5 is also four-wheel drive.
Despite being lighter, both BMWs fall short by 600 hp against the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport. The question remains – can they compete and beat the exclusive hypercar in a series of drag races? Watch the video to find out!
