The Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport Is All Internal Combustion, All The Money, and Not That Bad On Gas!

(By Tom Lohnes) – Do you have a spare four million dollars lying around? Do you care about fuel economy? If you do, you would be buying a Ferrari FXX K, Porsche 918 RSR, or a Mclaren P1 GTR due to their hybrid powertrains and 25+-mpg fuel economy.

The Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport has a good ol’ gasoline burning engine and the lowest production numbers in a year out of any VW group company. The EPA tested one, and the results actually weren’t terrible.

You would expect a vehicle with 1,479 horsepower, 1,258 ft-lbs of torque, four turbos, and 16 cylinders to be absolutely appalling on gas and you are absolutely correct. Your expectation may be about 4 or 5 MPG but the Chiron Pur Sport achieves double-digits at 10.1. The chances you will actually get this mileage are quite low, but it’s great to know if you hyper-mile your hypercar, you’ll at least get 10 mpg. 0-60 in the Chiron Pur Sport happens in a blistering 2.1 seconds, the top speed is 268 miles per hour, and they’re all sold out.

Yes all 25 Pur Sports sold out to previous Bugatti owners in a matter of 15 minutes. That is quite quick for a mere car that is the price of a mega-mansion, sweet boat, and maybe even a share of  a private island. So, for all you billionaires reading this, ff you want to save the environment, go for a hybrid and skip the Bugatti.
