Bugatti has unveiled their official successor to the Veyron: the Chiron.

Debuted at the Geneva Auto Show, the new supercar takes design cues from the brand's Veyron and Gran Turismo concept models, while boasting carbon fiber construction.

Under the hood, we see an all-new W16 8.0-liter engine, four turbochargers, and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox, allowing the Chiron to earn an insane 1,479 horsepower, so it can zoom from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.5 seconds. This makes it faster than the Veyron before it with an electronically-limited top speed of 261 mph.

Limited to 500 units, the Chiron is priced at $2.61 million USD and is slated to start deliveries from its Molsheim factory this October.
