Spain - Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo took to instagram to show off his new Bugatti Chiron.   

The Chiron takes the Veyron's already impressive specs, to another level: 0 to 100km/h in less than 2.5 seconds, four huge turbochargers and a total power output of 1103kW/1600Nm.

420km/h top speed

The 8-litre W16 engine from the Veyron has been completely redesigned, propelling the new hypercar to limited top speed of 420km/h for 'road use'. To keep it on the tar, its tyres have been specially developed courtesy of a Bugatti-Michelin partnership.

The seven-speed dual-clutch transmission has also been improved, and like its predecessor, sends power to both axles.

The Chiron is larger than the Veyron (82mm longer, 40mm wider and 53mm higher) and 155kg heavier for total of weight of 1995kg.
