IT MAY BE A CLICHÉ, BUT THE Bugatti Chiron essentially sits in a class of one. There are machines that can match or, depending on who you believe, exceed its performance, but none that can equal its incredible blend of talents.
The Pagani Huayra (below) arguably comes closest, certainly when it comes to drama and craftsmanship. Dripping with exotic materials and featuring exquisite detailing, otherworldly looks and a heavily fettled and turbocharged AMG 7.3-litre V12, the Pagani definitely hits all the right notes. It’s breathtakingly fast and will stir your soul, even on a trip to the shops. Yet as with rivals such as the 278mph (277.87mph to be precise)
Koenigsegg Agera RS, the Huayra is essentially a bespoke creation that will be built in button numbers for owners to squirrel away, only to be brought out for special occasions.
So for a real rival to the Chiron we’ll probably have to wait for the
Mclaren BP23 (below) to arrive in 2019. Aping the three-seater layout of the iconic F1 and rumoured to be packing a 1000bhp punch, the big Mac is also being developed with everyday useability in mind. If any firm can upstage Bugatti, we reckon it’ll be the wizards at Woking and their BP23. JD
