One of the world’s greatest mechanical wonders has finally landed in Malaysia, and it is none other than the Bugatti Chiron Sport. It’s also one of the fastest production vehicles known to man, and the speedometer, which goes up to 500 km/h, is a testament to that.

It gets a monstrous 8.0 litre 16-cylinder engine (that’s 64 valves!) strapped behind the driver seat, featuring four turbochargers to squeeze a massive 1,500 PS and 1,600 Nm of torque. Power goes to all four wheels through a specially-designed seven-speed dual clutch transmission, allowing it to rocket from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.4 seconds, while its electronically limited top speed of 420 km/h can be reached in about 40 seconds.

Cooling the massive engine is no easy task, too. The large air intakes combine to ram up to 60,000 litres of cool air per minute, and a separate water cooling system cycles up to 800 litres of coolant per minute.

The Chiron Sport is affectionately known as the beauty and the beast, the latter of course a reference to its sheer brute. But it’s also a sight to behold – much of the car is constructed with carbon-fibre, and the composite material can even be had unpainted. As you would expect from a car with this price tag, everything is impeccably built, both inside and out, seen or unseen.

Also, this is one car that pictures just don’t do enough justice. Watch the walk-around video above and pay close scrutiny to the details. After all, it is one of the most expensive cars to be officially introduced in Malaysia. As usual, let us know what you think, below.
