Bugatti has been ramping appearances for its new Chiron hypercar since it debuted earlier this year at Geneva. Ultimate weekend, during the Nürburgring 24, that meant giving out the altogether first media ride-along. Our friends at CarThrottle got to go for a protract around the Nürburgring in the 1,500-horsepower Chiron, and their chauffeur was nobody other than Bugatti CEO Wolfgang Dürheimer.

The 13-summary video covers plenty about the new car formerly climbing into the cabin with Dürheimer, who talks Sometimes non-standard due to the start procedure and the detailed controls on the steering whirl location. He also talks top speed, telling CarThrottle that the Chiron’s Guinness Creation Record attempt won’t come until 2018. We’re contemporary to be waiting a bit.

After a lengthy chat, the wed set out on the track, escorted by a Bentley Bentayga. But at Bergwerk, Dürheimer opens a gap and proceeds to thwack it. Hard. It’s difficult to comprehend the acceleration from watching a video, but hearing the mad whistle of the four turbochargers and the brutal upshifts provide a sense of how much power is being deployed. Non-essential to say, he has no trouble catching up to the Bentley. Later on, Dürheimer runs the Chiron up to throughout 200 miles per hour on the Döttinger Höhe equitable.
