(ORDO NEWS) — By purchasing a 1600 hp car the owners hardly think about its fuel efficiency. But on the other hand, this question is of interest to experts who carry out the appropriate measurements.
In the spring of 2020, the Bugatti Chiron hypercar received another limited edition – the Pur Sport version, which became the most extreme version of all the modifications already presented, not counting the futuristic prototype Bugatti Bolide with a capacity of 1850 hp.
Pur Sport became 19 kg lighter than the original hypercar, and the technical changes of the novelty were reduced to reconfiguring the 7-speed robotic gearbox, which changed the gear ratios, and in the 1500-horsepower 8-liter W16 with four turbines shifted the cut-off – the engine began to rotate to 6900 rpm But at the same time he became more gluttonous.
The Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport had a combined fuel consumption of 23.5 liters per 100 kilometers (10 miles / gallon) in real-life conditions, according to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In urban conditions, the 1,600-horsepower coupe consumes 29.4 liters per 100 kilometers (8 miles / gallon), and 18 liters (13 miles / gallon) in highway mode.
According to the passport data of the French automaker, the Chiron Pur Sport should consume 26.2 liters per 100 km in mixed mode, 35.2 liters per 100 km in the city and 15.2 liters per 100 km on the highway. At the same time, the standard Bugatti Chiron, according to the measurements of the same EPA, in mixed mode consumes 21.4 liters per 100 kilometers, in the city – 26.1 liters per 100 kilometers, and outside the city – 16.8 liters per 100 kilometers.
Taking into account the increased power of Pur Sport, such an increase in “appetite” is quite expected. Interestingly, the comparison between the 1500-horsepower Chiron and its 1000-horsepower predecessor, the Bugatti Veyron, was flattered by the more powerful, but also more modern hypercar, which turned out to be more economical.
